Joe Biden nominated Nusrat Jahan Choudhury as a US District Court Judge on January 19, 2022.
Middle East Eye published an article titled “US Muslims react to Biden's nomination of first Muslim woman to be federal judge.” The article reports in part:
Muslims across the United States are celebrating President Joe Biden’s judicial nomination of Nusrat Choudhury, who, if confirmed by the Senate, will be the first Muslim woman to be appointed as a US federal judge. Choudhury, a Bangladeshi American among the eight nominees announced by the White House on 19 January, is the legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Illinois, a position she has held since 2020. Before that, she served as the deputy director of the national ACLU’s racial justice programme, following a stint as a senior staff attorney for the organization's national security project, and was a Marvin M Karpatkin Fellow.
Nusrat Choudhury was a litigator in the first legal challenge to the United States No Fly List which protects millions of airline passengers from potential terror attacks every day. The Middle East Eye report states in part: She also challenged the No-Fly List of the US government, a database that government agencies use to decide who is allowed to board flights. In 2012 Choudhury was the litigator in the first federal lawsuit challenging the No-Fly List procedures.
The No Fly List lawsuit filed by terror-linked Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is still being litigated in the United States District Court of Maryland even though the 4th US Circuit of Appeals upheld the Terror Watchlist against the same "due process" challenge in June 2021.
Florida Family Association sent out two email alerts starting on February 13, 2022 to encourage people to send emails to urge the members of the United States Senate Judiciary Committee to oppose Choudhury's nomination.
On May 26, 2022 Congress.gov reported "Committee on the Judiciary. Ordered to be reported favorably. Reported by Senator Durbin, Committee on the Judiciary, without printed report. Placed on Senate Executive Calendar. Calendar No. 970."
Florida Family Association sent out three more email alerts up until November 2022 which encouraged people to send emails to urge all 100 United States Senators to oppose the nomination of anti-public safety Muslim activist Nusrat Choudhury
Nearly 14,000 emails were sent to all 100 United States Senators.
On January 3, 2023 Congress.gov reported "Returned to the President under the provisions of Senate Rule XXXI, paragraph 6 of the Standing Rules of the Senate."
Although the Senate Judiciary Committee allegedly voted her nomination out of committee the full United States Senate did NOT hold a vote for her nomination during the six months that followed including the safe weeks to vote on controversy after the November 2022 election.
Hopefully, Florida Family Association's email alerts helped influence enough United States Senators to withhold their support that the full senate declined to vote to confirm the nomination of this radical Islamist to the federal court.
Florida Family Association will watch the United States Senate calendar for future nominations.
Thank you for supporting this email campaign. Your emails made a difference.
