Neil Gorsuch was just sworn-in as the 101st Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.

Justice Anthony Kennedy administered the oath in the Rose Garden after introductory remarks by President Donald Trump. 

Gorsuch assumes the seat left vacant by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia last year. 

Gorsuch took the Constitutional Oath in a private ceremony at the Supreme Court earlier this morning. It was administered by Chief Justice John Roberts.

The U.S. Senate confirmed Gorsuch on Friday by a 54-45 vote after Republicans used the "nuclear option" to block Democrats' filibuster of the nomination. Three Democrats from red states voted for Gorsuch.

Many Democrats who opposed Gorsuch argued that Republicans "stole" a Supreme Court seat by refusing to hold hearings last year for President Obama's nominee, Merrick Garland, after Scalia died. 

Watch the historic moment above.
