Escuche/Vea/Lea (en inglés)

El presidente Obama nominó a la jueza del tribunal federal de apelaciones Sonia Sotomayor para integrar la Corte Suprema, poniéndola en camino de convertirse en la primera jueza de origen hispano en integrar la Corte Suprema. Sotomayor, de 54 años de edad, es hija de padres portorriqueños, que la criaron en un complejo de viviendas públicas del Bronx. Presentamos un debate entre Marjorie Cohn, del National Lawyers Guild, el abogado y fundador del blog SCOTUS, Tom Goldstein, César Perales, asesor general de Latino Justice, y Juan Manuel García-Passalacqua, un analista político independiente que conoce personalmente a Sotomayor.
