It’s Official: We Have Our First Wise Latina Supreme Court Justice!

As was just announced by Senator Al Franken (D) Minnesotta. 9 Republicans joined 59 Democrats.

The final vote was 68 (Y) 31 (N)

I was aware that I was watching history being made on CSPAN 2. I am overwhelmed with pride.

As I wrote this, I got a call from my mother. “Another historic day we witness in the United States.” She is a 73 year-old Cuban emigrant and a naturalized American citizen. She gets it.

Congratulations, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor!

Judge Sotomayor
