ATLANTA, Ga. (WDHN) — On Tuesday, Governor Kay Ivey and Governor Brian Kemp along with 18 other state governors sent a joint letter to the White House regarding packing the U.S. Supreme Court.

In the joint letter, the governors call on President Biden to not add any more seats to the existing nine justices on the Supreme Court.

The joint letter can be read below.

Governor Kemp’s tweet confirming his support for the letter can be seen below.

Governor Ivey also added the following comment:

“Court packing is Washington Democrats’ attempt to make the U.S. Supreme Court a bench of activists pushing their agenda. To simply put it, increasing Justices would be unprecedented, unproductive and unpredictable. I have the highest respect for the U.S. Supreme Court and the grave responsibility these nine individuals have, which is why I strongly oppose any change to the number of Justices on the bench. I am proud to lead this letter with 19 of my fellow governors. I urge President Biden to put down any partisan pressures and withdraw consideration from any proposal to pack the court. Let’s ensure that we protect the integrity of the U.S. Supreme Court and that of our country.”
