WASHINGTON— After the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva issued the following statement:
“Today we suffer a momentous loss to our nation as we say thank you and goodbye to Justice Ginsburg – a torch-bearer of equity. Throughout her groundbreaking career in advocacy, law, and ultimately the Supreme Court, she never backed down from a fight for social justice. She paved a path of righteousness in this country, stood up to a system tilted toward men, and took a stand for women and vulnerable populations across this nation. I know that the lives of my daughters and granddaughters are better thanks to her work and shining example. To honor her legacy we must continue the work she began. We must never back down, and we must let her strength guide us.
“My thoughts are with her family and those across the country mourning her death. I urge the Senate to respect her dying wish to not replace her until after the results of the very near presidential election.”
