There are clear and humane alternatives to locking up children, such as community supervision or GPS monitoring, that are cheaper and more effective than mass-incarceration of refugee families.

The administration’s own experts are providing further proof that ’s reckless approach to immigration is doing permanent harm to children.

I want Chairman , Ranking Member and the administration to know that I am ready and willing to work with them on finding a nominee who deserves a seat on the Ninth Circuit.

Republican leaders tried to throw out 101 years of bipartisan Senate tradition to seat a deeply flawed nominee on the federal bench. Today’s victory was a red-letter day in the Senate.

I’m the child of Jewish refugees who fled Nazi Germany. To read what Mr. Bounds wrote was a slap in the face & I imagine there are millions of people across the country who would feel the same way. That’s why & I withheld our blue slips from his nomination.

Ryan Bounds flagrantly misrepresented his background, lying to cover up disturbing, intolerant writings from his past & in my view, that means he’s disqualified from sitting on the federal bench. Here’s the bottom line: today, constant pressure against a bad nominee won out.

Gratified the Senate came to its senses today & that long-time, proven practices of bipartisanship for judicial nominations > partisan efforts to force through a deeply flawed and compromised nominee.

The American people spoke and we passed our resolution in the Senate with bipartisan support. Now we need to win the House. Call your representatives and let them know what you think about net neutrality.

Real ensures an even playing field online, so that small businesses and entrepreneurs can reach customers beyond their city limits and compete with big corporations on the internet.

Congress should pass my bill to make every single ballot cast in America a paper ballot to prevent future hacking by Putin and Russia.

.’s credibility has shrunk to ZERO. When it really counted, he didn’t stand up to Putin. It’s time for my Congressional colleagues to stop making excuses for Trump and see him for who he is.

For now, because the Trump administration has opened the floodgates to dark money and refused to answer key questions as to why, I will not support the Rettig nomination for IRS commissioner.

What the president calls a “witch hunt” is turning up a lot of witches. No more excuses for Congress to avoid real, bipartisan investigation.

Does simply prefer strongmen to democratically-elected leaders, or does Putin have something he’s exploiting? The American people need answers.

Enough is enough. It’s time for the Finance Committee to see ’s tax returns. His erratic behavior in recent days has raised too many ominous questions.

The Trump administration’s pro-corruption dark money policy is dangerously undemocratic. It goes straight to the Hall of Fame of shameless, hackish, partisan politics.

On Monday morning, the public learned about Russia’s devious infiltration of our democracy using a “gun rights organization.” Hours later, on Monday night, the admin’s new dark-money policy made it easier for Russia to get away with it the next time.

When the Trump admin. opened the floodgates this week for more foreign dark money to sweep through our democracy, the debate over the future of IRS leadership got a lot more complicated.

When votes tomorrow on Rettig’s nomination to lead IRS, I will be voting no unless Rettig promises to reverse the Trump admin’s new policy that makes it EASIER for anonymous foreign donors to funnel dark money into political nonprofits.
