This is completely backwards & nothing more than a short-sighted attempt to throw red meat at the administration's base. Refugees are fleeing violence in Central America & these investments are crucial to addressing the root of these problems. Gutting resources isn't the answer.

The State Department is refusing to allow flags to fly at American embassies around the world. This is disgraceful—as LGBTQ+ people continue to face discrimination at home & abroad, it's critical that we signal our support internationally. They must reverse this policy.

The fight for women's reproductive rights must include expanding access to contraception. We've introduced a bill to make it more affordable and accessible by requiring insurance companies to cover birth control available over-the-counter.

Today marks the 4th anniversary of the devastating tragedy that was the Emanuel AME Church shooting. While we offer our thoughts and prayers to the families and victims of that day, we also ought to be taking action. The House has acted. It’s the Senate’s turn.

Election security should be a nonpartisan issue, yet we have a national security threat in the White House who is publicly thanking Senate Republicans for blocking election security legislation. This is downright irresponsible - the time to secure our elections is now.

The president made it clear again last week he intends to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. I'm sick and tired of this. We should be expanding coverage for hardworking Americans, lowering the cost of prescriptions, and making health care more affordable.

It’s been nearly 10 years since the federal minimum wage was last increased – the longest our country has gone without raising it. $7.25 per hour is simply not enough for many hardworking Americans. It’s time for Congress to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour.

Companies that don't enforce sexual harassment protections must be called out. My colleagues and I are demanding do more to improve sexual harassment policies at locations across the country. It's not enough for these polices to exist on paper - they must be enforced.

326 days. That's how long Jose was separated from his son under the Trump administration's cruel family separation policy. This Father's Day, I'm thinking of fathers just like him who suffered this human rights abuse at the hands of our government.

The Supreme Court could decide as early as tomorrow whether the Trump administration can distort the 2020 Census count by adding a citizenship question. It's clear what this is: an attempt to rig the system in favor of Republicans. SCOTUS must strike it down.

Native American women are facing violence at alarming rates. 84% have experienced violence in their lifetime and countless women and girls have been murdered or remain missing. This is outrageous. I've cosponsored Savanna's Act to help combat this crisis.

Don’t let this go unnoticed: the Trump administration reportedly plans to use a former Japanese internment camp to house immigrant children. This is downright immoral.

DACA was announced to the world 7 years ago today, paving the way for hundreds of thousands of DREAMers to come out of the shadows in the only country they know as home. We have to keep fighting for a pathway to citizenship for these young people—America is their home.

Thrilled NASA’s ‘Hidden Figures’ are getting the recognition they deserve—there are young women of color all over the country interested in STEM and it’s critical they know of the groundbreaking women who came before them.

Republicans have rewritten the tax code in favor of corporations at the expense of middle-class and working Americans. Passing my LIFT Act would ensure our economy starts working again for working people.

When women's reproductive rights are under attack, we have to fight to ensure access to reproductive health care—and that includes contraception. My colleagues and I introduced a bill to expand access to over-the-counter birth control and make it more affordable.
