My constituent Michael Nguyen, an American citizen, has been imprisoned in Vietnam for over 14 months. This week, I went to a hearing, which is not my committee, to secure State’s commitment to continue advocating for Michael. We need to bring Michael home to OC.

These predatory agreements favor corporate interests and hurt families in . I was proud to vote for the today, which would put an end to forced arbitration clauses. Watch me explain to Mr. Monopoly why this is good for consumers and workers:

Forced arbitration agreements take away the right to seek justice in our courts from consumers who get cheated and workers who are harassed. And 81 of the 100 biggest corporations in America sneak these clauses into the fine print of their contracts.

But mostly I didn't have time to think about Congress or my kids. The waves kept coming. And I kept falling off, sometimes less than gracefully. (8/9)

I was scared of lots of things: stepping on a stingray, getting cut by the fin, hitting my head on a rock, dropping in on someone’s perfect ride—this could be a 9 tweet thread on its own. (7/9)

I spent a lot of time under waves, rather than on top. And I "drank" some ocean water, which made me double down on fighting pollution. (Okay, this thread does have a bit of politics/policy, but keep reading; I promise it’s worth it!) (6/9)

I love my work in Congress, and I love my three kids. But sometimes it feels like too much. Heck, sometimes it *is* too much. In California, when the going gets tough, the tough go... (4/9)

I do take time to be mom to my kids. But that's a pretty relentless gig too. Each week brings 6 loads of laundry, emptying backpacks, and the inevitable argument about teeth brushing. (3/9)

Being a Congressmember is a pretty relentless gig. Each week brings hearings, briefings, meetings, interviews, community events, votes, debates, and travel. It brings opportunities to stand up for families. And these days, it brings quite a bit of Trump shenanigans as well. (2/9)

This thread is a reveal. Disclaimer: it has nothing to do with policy or politics. But there will be pictures. And humility. (1/9)

4 million patients in CA visited a Community Health Center last year. When I visited a CHC in in August, one thing was clear: patients in Orange County depend on this care. We must extend funding for these programs.

The ensures Americans have the right to seek justice in our courts. Glad this will come before the House this week and proud to support this important legislation.

My office has an open-door policy, but I expect everyone who comes in to bring data, not demands. I have no problem speaking truth to power, and the truth is this: forced arbitration is bad for consumers, the free market, and the principle of justice itself.

Fun fact: when the Constitution was signed in 1787, the most populous city at the time was Philadelphia, which had roughly half the number of residents that Tustin has today!

232 years ago today, our Founding Fathers came together to sign the Constitution. I am especially honored today on for the chance to serve in Congress. I remain committed to fulfilling the oath of office I took in January—to uphold and defend our Constitution.

Unions like made America’s middle-class. They took it on the chin during the financial crisis, and they deserve wages and benefits that allow workers to live with dignity. I stand with GM workers.

Since we can’t count on to protect our environment, Congress must step up. The House passed 3 bills last week that will safeguard our coasts from offshore drilling and development, and we will continue to lead on this issue.

ICYMI: A Trump Administration official was overseeing billions in natural resources while interviewing for a job at an oil company looking to exploit those resources. This never-ending corruption is hurting our country.
