Hatch on Gorsuch's Separation of Powers Credentials
Writing for SCOTUSblog, Senator Orrin Hatch outlines Judge Neil Gorsuch's strong record on the separation of powers.
The senator from Utah writes, "Judge Gorsuch has consistently demonstrated in his judicial opinions and other writings that he deeply values the constitutional separation of powers between the three branches of the federal government. Judge Gorsuch understands that the Constitution gives each branch distinct roles: Congress makes the laws, the President enforces those laws, and the courts interpret those laws and the Constitution. The branches may act only according to the powers the Constitution grants them, with the remaining powers and rights reserved to the states and, ultimately, to the people."
