U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a strong advocate of the First Amendment and a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, released the following statement after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of protecting freedoms for religious schools in Our Lady of Guadalupe School v. Morrissey-Berru.

"This decision is great news for the First Amendment and our First Freedom: the Freedom of Religion. It is the bedrock of our Constitution and today’s decision reaffirms that it bars government from telling religious organizations who they can and can't employ. This is a good win, and we need to keep fighting for more like it.”
