The White House confirmed this week that just 4% of the 157 million people employed in the United States received a pay raise from the Republican tax cuts. Meanwhile, it was a windfall for big corporations and the top 1%. This was a scam that will hurt hardworking people.

I'm a proud daughter of California, where our public lands include some of the most spectacular landscapes in the country. It's important that we protect them for future generations. That's why I introduced a bill to expand protections for over 1 million acres of land in CA.

Don’t miss out: This Saturday, entrance to every National Park across the country will be free to celebrate the beginning of National Park Week. Our public lands are treasures – I hope you’ll get a chance to explore.

Another consequence of the Trump administration's discriminatory ban on transgender service members: transgender students will be shut out of attending our military academies. This is wrong. Many of these students spend years perfecting their application.

This is the kind of bold action we need to combat climate change and begin working towards a Green New Deal. Thank you for showing why California continues to be a leader in this fight.

Make sure you're paying attention to this: the Supreme Court will consider whether the Trump administration illegally added a citizenship question to the 2020 Census. This is a blatant attempt to intimidate immigrants from participating. We must speak out.

The administration is asking Congress to continue funding its cruel immigration policies and the president’s vanity project of a border wall. Enough. Today I'm leading 18 of my colleagues in opposing any additional funding for these irresponsible policies.

Republicans are trying to ban women who receive Medicaid from getting care at Planned Parenthood. I’m sick & tired of these relentless attacks on Americans’ access to health care. My colleagues & I have joined a legal brief to support women’s access to Planned Parenthood.

People who are seeking asylum in our country are fleeing violence and persecution. We should be welcoming them, not detaining them indefinitely. This is not who we are.

We must recognize this as a public health crisis: Black mothers are dying at alarming rates from pregnancy-related causes. Grateful to & for taking a critical step forward in this fight by forming the Black Maternal Health Caucus.

The House has already passed a bill to reauthorize & expand the Violence Against Women Act. It’s time for the Senate to act. Protecting survivors of sexual assault shouldn't be about politics.

It's unconscionable to deport the widower of a service member killed in action. The truth is that the Trump Administration is targeting immigrants who pose no public safety threat. Our government shouldn’t be ripping families apart. That’s not who we are.

Something we're not talking about nearly enough: the maternal mortality rate in our country is worse than it was 25 years ago, with Black women 3 to 4 times more likely to die from pregnancy-related causes than white women.

Today is the *last day* to comment on the Trump Administration’s attempt to gut the Clean Water Act. These attacks on our fundamental right to clean water have got to stop. Make your voice heard 👇.

Today marks the first under the Republican tax law that overwhelmingly benefits corporations and the top 1%. Almost half of working families are a $400 unexpected expense away from financial disaster. They deserve a real tax cut. That's why I proposed the LIFT Act.

“...we build bridges, not walls.” If you need a reminder today of all the good that exists in our country, watch this video of Yo-Yo Ma performing a piece by Bach at our Southern border.

Using human beings as political pawns is reprehensible and has no place in our country. We are so much better than this.

This is just plain cruel. The truth is that transgender students are facing alarming suicide rates. Rolling back guidance for schools on how to help and protect them is indefensible.

In America today, Black women are 3 to 4 times more likely to die from pregnancy-related causes than white women. This is a painful fact that we must acknowledge so we can confront it.
