Kyle Duncan, a lawyer who has built a career around extreme positions against members of the LGBTQ community, has been nominated by Donald Trump for a lifetime appointment to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. He has worked aggressively to eradicate LGBTQ rights, immigrant rights, reproductive rights, voting rights, and more.
