David Dinkins was a great Mayor of New York, a great national leader and a family friend. He worked to bring New Yorkers together and was an example of historic leadership that represented the importance of diversity. 1/2

There must be a swift and quick investigation, and the alleged perpetrators must be brought to justice. I am seeking to pass federal legislation to investigate this repetitive national violence against transgender women of color. Enough is enough! 2/2

We should all mourn the senseless violent murder of Asia Foster, a transgender woman of color. These murders have happened one after another. This appears to be a directed violent attack on innocent women because of who they are. 1/2

Today, we honor the lives of those in the trans-community taken from us as a result of senseless violence against them just because of who they are. We must strive to make this world safe and inclusive in every way possible for our trans-community brothers and sisters.

What a disappointment to have him suffer being fired during this on-going midnight massacre. Thank you, Director Krebs, who headed CISA professionally and efficiently, for being a public servant. 2/2

Director Krebs is a patriot. He made several presentations to the Homeland Security Committee on providing election security for the 2020 election. He is committed to the American people being able to have secure and safe elections. 1/2

The peaceful transition of power has been the bedrock of our system of government since its founding. Every move to undermine that transition cuts against the character of our country.

other governmental resources for their transition team is tearing at the edges of democracy and the Constitution. The Administrator needs to release the funding immediately and stop acting illegally. Enough is enough! 2/2
