These firsthand accounts from a agent are horrifying. Dirty, sobbing children. Conditions worse than a jail, on the level of torture. Agents are dehumanizing children to shield themselves from the trauma they are inflicting.

Over 9K agents participated in these secret Facebook groups – how are less than 100 under investigation? This is exactly why we need a full, independent investigation into this agency. We need Congressional oversight and we will demand accountability.

Millions benefit from each year, including many who rely on year-round Pell to graduate more quickly & cheaply. I was a leader in the fight to restore year-round Pell, and as Labor-HHS-Ed Vice Chair, I'll keep fighting to increase the maximum award!

This administration’s obsession with detaining as many migrants as possible has created chaos and crisis at the border. I’m grateful to for shedding light on this every time she tours the facilities.

In 1989, it cost $60 for legal permanent residents to apply for U.S. citizenship. Today that fee is $725. I intro'd the Citizenship Affordability Act to decrease the financial burden of the citizenship process & keep the American Dream within reach for everyone who earns it.

This is a must read: has been driven to chaos and dysfunction by Trump. CBP cannot be trusted to make necessary reforms on its own. Congress will hold accountable – that is the only path forward.

To be clear, our country is being called out for massive human rights violations by the United Nations and our international community. This has to stop. We must end this cruel, anti-immigrant agenda.

President Trump & Steven Miller have gone too far – US asylum officers are refusing to implement their deadly asylum ban. This is what speaking truth to power looks like. These are Americans standing up for our values.

ICYMI: When I took the oath of allegiance to become a U.S. citizen, I pledged to support & defend the Constitution, in which the right to dissent is enshrined. Simply disagreeing with the President on legislative issues does not make me, or any Member of Congress, un-American.

Trump's fear-mongering is causing women across the southwest to miss necessary appointments out of fear of encountering ICE & being deported. These vulnerable women shouldn't have to live like this - women should be able to go to the doctor without fearing deportation.
