Five months after her nomination by U.S. President, Loretta Lynch is expected to finally be confirmed by Senate as the nations next attorney general. Lynchs nomination has been held up for weeks after Senate Democrats held up passage of legislation aimed at cracking down on human trafficking, due to an anti-abortion amendment inserted into the bill by Republicans. The impasse of the abortion measure was broken off early this week when a handful of Republicans and Democrats reached a compromise.
Key Phrases/Words

nomination :提名
hold up:推迟
human trafficking:人口贩卖
abortion:堕胎


5个月前,美国总统奥巴马提名洛雷塔•林奇为美国司法部长,如今参议院正式通过了对她的任命。由于共和党在打击人口贩卖的法律条文中插入了一项反对堕胎的修正案,参议院中的民主党搁置了该法律的通过流程,于是随后林奇的提名被悬置数周。在少数共和党人和民主党达成妥协的情况下,本周早些时候关于堕胎措施的僵局被打破。
