This is another sad legacy of the Trump era. His rhetoric and policies have only emboldened unacceptable behavior against minorities and women.

The President’s proposal is yet another example of his willingness use the Black and brown communities as political pawns. DACA recipients deserve a permanent solution & Black Americans, who are disproportionately impacted by this shutdown, need to have the government reopened.

Black workers make up more of the federal workforce than any other population. Our communities are being deeply affected by this shutdown and it has got to STOP.

I have long called out for his racist remarks. While his trajectory of racism is nothing new, it is becoming impossible to ignore. This ideology is unacceptable in the halls of Congress.

Federal workers should not be used as pawns in the president’s attempt to secure a medieval, ineffective border wall. This has gone on long enough. It’s time to end this .

After Hurricane Michael devastated my constituents’ crops, several farmers received D-Snap. The admin’s cont’d shutdown puts D-Snap at risk & threatens the livelihood of farmers/families in GA02. should reopen the gov’t before more damage is done.

Today I led a letter with House Dems urging the Trump administration to direct federal agencies to provide back pay to thousands of federal contract workers hurt by the shutdown. Even w/out legislation, the administration can act and do the right thing.

It’s up to the Republicans to save their party from the abyss and convince the American people that their values are firmly rooted in a future where everyone can succeed regardless of race. 3/3

Republicans must now take a hard look in the mirror and firmly decide that they will reject racism in all forms, including standing up to Donald Trump, who like Steve King, has made a career of racist and outlandish statements that divide our country. 2/
