Ny Hispanic Leaders Attack Schumer Over Alito

State Senator Ruben Diaz (a pro-life, pro-family Democrat from the Bronx) is taking Chuck Schumer to task for running down Samuel Alito at a big demo in NYC manyana (the good Rev’s last demo drew a crowd of 20,000!). Here’s the Diaz press release:

On Thursday, January 12, 2006 at 12:00 noon, NYS Senator Reverend Ruben Diaz (D-NY), together with Hispanic Pastors, Clergy and religious leaders from the City of New York will hold a press conference in front of US Senator Charles Schumer’s New York office located at 757 Third Avenue in Manhattan, between 46th & 47th Streets – as promised – to demonstrate his support for US Supreme Court Nominee Samuel Alito.

Upon Justice Alito’s nomination, Senator Diaz publicly pleaded for Senator Schumer not to ignore New York’s Hispanic community and their personal and political stand for the respect for human life at all stages of development.

“Since that time and throughout the Senate confirmation hearings, Senator Schumer has ignored our community and what we stand for and favors only a judicial nominee who favors unrestricted abortion,” stated Senator Reverend Diaz. “Appointees to the US Supreme Court cannot be expected to be clones of retiring justices so that they will be ideologically compatible to the Democratic Senator’s point of view. Justice Alito has so far demonstrated his superior qualifications and his independent judicial temperament – all qualities we want to see in any justice on the US Supreme Court.”
