"We need to fix our broken immigration system".
Feinstein did not comment after her meeting, but she said last week that she wanted to take time to consider his record. If it exists at all, it is so newly minted as to be virginal.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., who will meet with Gorsuch on Tuesday, has said Trump's nominee must be able to win support from 60 of the Senate's 100 members.
"I will support having a hearing and a vote because I think the President's nominee deserves that consideration", he said. "He's unleashed a flurry of legally dubious executive orders, including his travel ban created to keep people from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering our country", he continues.
In his 2010 book "The Decline and Fall of the American Republic", Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science Bruce Ackerman predicted that the president would be changed "from an 18th-century notable to a 19th-century party magnate to a 20th-century tribune to a 21st-century demagogue", noted a February 4 article in The Economist. The Senate was here long before President Trump and will be here long after, and has a tradition to uphold.
On Saturday, Trump tweeted critiquing the opinion of the "so-called judge" saying that the ruling that halted his executive order was "ridiculous and will be overturned". While very important, the media focus on Rex Tillerson, Jeff Sessions and the other Cabinet nominees is really "small potatoes" compared with - and even a distraction from - the Neil Gorsuch Supreme Court nomination, which will fully test President Trump.

And if that happens, can expanding the rule to legislative issues be far behind?
Judge Neil Gorsuch met Monday with California Sen. If they're not, the American public is probably going to wonder why not.
"He is clearly a very smart, polite and capable man who loves being a judge", the NY senator told the press after a closed-door interview with President Donald Trump's pick for the high court.
The panel also discussed the possibility of Supreme Court Justices dying or retiring under Trump's administration, especially since the three oldest justices - Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer and Anthony Kennedy - are either liberal or moderate. We all hate the showboating of the modern confirmation process, where groups raise money and senators raise their profiles through vicious attacks on the nominees. Senate minority leader Chuck Schumercontinues to propagate the silly notion that such a standard exists. "But it is the senators, not the nominees, who are out of line".
The Freedom Index provides details and descriptions on hundreds of specific key votes. The same goes for the possibility that McConnell or other Senate Republicans would have blocked any and all nominees named by a President Hillary Clinton, as some (in the weeks leading up to Election Day) suggested they would do following the inauguration of the Democrat.
What they may find outside the mainstream is a Senate Democratic caucus acting through a filibuster to prolong the current gridlock on the Supreme Court.
