I applaud the Illinois legislature for acting on this issue at the state level by passing a bill to keep pregnant women out of jail while awaiting trial for nonviolent offenses

I’m proud to join & 20 Senators in calling for an end to this egregious policy. Our legislation will help ensure all women are treated humanely and set new standards for the treatment of pregnant and young women in detention

The Trump Administration’s practice of shackling and detaining pregnant women must stop immediately. This policy puts mothers and their infants at risk while also denying these women the essential maternal care they deserve

All workers deserve a fair, livable wage that recognizes the value and difficulty of their labor—including those doing dangerous work hanging hundreds of feet in the air to wash windows in Chicago

…he’s also keeping DNI Coats in the dark about inviting Putin into the White House this fall. I’ve been shocked by his behavior so many times this week

Don’t let this get lost in the news about all the ways Donald Trump is putting Russia first: not only did he fail to tell *his own* Director of National Intelligence that he was inviting the Russian Foreign Minister into the Oval Office for a secret meeting last year…

Gun violence is a public health epidemic that consistently claims 30,000+ lives every year. By blocking from researching potential ways to reduce this sort of needless violence, Congressional GOP put the NRA ahead of the American people once again

That might make Donald Trump want him on the , but it doesn’t make me confident that he’ll be independent in the face of a President who is under investigation and doing whatever he can to undermine the investigation

Perhaps most troubling, after helping lead an investigation into President Clinton, he wrote that President should not be investigated—much less prosecuted—while in office. Seriously. You can read his “do as I say not as I do” article right here:

There are already cases in the system that threaten to rip these critical protections away from my constituents (such as Texas v. US). I’m gravely concerned that he may hold radical beliefs about what is necessary and proper to protect the health of hard-working American families

Judge Kavanaugh appears to be believe that it violates the Constitution to protect every American from being denied health insurance because of a pre-existing condition

Kavanaugh put air quality at risk for 1/2 of USA risk by blocking pollution restrictions in such an extreme way that even conservative Justices reversed him in a 6-2 ruling, suggesting he'd put his own policy views ahead of the statute’s plain text

I’m troubled that Judge Kavanaugh invented judicial justifications to protect military contractors from accountability, even though NO Federal law or judicial precedent required such a ruling. Read here:
