The Latino Coalition, a “leading, national non-partisan advocacy organization representing Hispanic businesses and consumers,” released a statement on Tuesday supporting Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the United States Supreme Court.

“Judge Brett Kavanaugh is an exemplary individual and an extremely qualified legal constitutionalist with a record of ruling against the kind of regulatory overreach that can be chilling to America’s entrepreneurs,” said TLC Chairman and former U.S. SBA Administrator Hector Barreto. “The Latino Coalition urges the Senate to put partisanship aside in order to quickly confirm Judge Kavanaugh. We believe he will protect the rights of all Americans, including the small-business owners who suffer most when government goes beyond its constitutional bounds.”

The Latino Coalition is a non-profit national organization founded by Hispanic business owners across the nation in 1995 to “develop policies and solutions relevant to Latinos.”

“Established to address and engage on key issues that that directly affect the well-being of Hispanics in the United States, TLC’s agenda is to create and promote initiatives and partnerships that will foster economic equivalency and enhance and empower overall business, economic and social development for Latinos,” the group’s website reads.

A Tuesday Pew Research poll revealed that 41 percent of Americans want Kavanaugh confirmed, compared to 36 percent who think the Senate “should not” confirm the Trump appointee. (RELATED: Forty-One Percent Of Americans Want Kavanaugh Confirmed)

Meanwhile, liberal advocacy groups like Think Progress continue to proclaim the various ways in which the sky will fall if Kavanaugh is confirmed, as evidenced by this piece published Monday titled “If Kavanaugh is confirmed, you can kiss the right to vote goodbye.”
