Rep. Becerra Applauds Court Ruling Against California's Proposition 8


Location: Los Angeles, CA

After learning of Judge Vaughn R. Walker's decision to overturn California's Proposition 8, Representative Xavier Becerra (CA-31), Vice Chair of the House Democratic Caucus, released the following statement:

"One of America's greatest hallmarks is that, while we make our share of mistakes, sooner than later justice and common sense prevail. Judge Walker's ruling makes it clear that Proposition 8 violated both the due process and equal protection clauses of the U.S. Constitution. I am pleased the Court upheld the sanctity of these constitutional principles that protect all of us. This long march toward equality in marriage has hit its stride."
