Excerpt from the President's Remarks at the Hispanic Heritage Month Event
"I named a good man to be on the U.S. Court of Appeals, the D.C. Circuit, a man named Miguel Estrada. Miguel, where are you? Thank you for coming, Miguel. You know, there's a lot of talk in Washington about making sure we have diversity on our courts, and there should be. I ask the Senate to move this man's nomination through. He's smart, he's capable, he needs that job -- America needs to have him on the bench. Get him moving, before it's too late. "
