Incredible news: Our Senate office just received word that will resume consideration of some deferred action requests, including medical deferred action for sick children. This is a powerful victory for people across the country who fought back & made their voices heard.

Students shouldn’t suffer when private equity firms close a college or engage in deceptive practices to attract new students. That’s why & I are joining forces to investigate private equity’s attempt to take over colleges and universities.

We should be investing in our Historically Black Colleges & Universities, not treating them & their funding like political footballs. Senate Republicans need to stop the games & pass critical funding for HBCUs this week.

I’ve got a bill that would put private equity firms on the hook for the decisions made by the companies they control, including for-profit colleges. It’s long past time to hold these firms accountable for steering colleges into a ditch & scamming students.

In industry after industry, private equity firms have stripped companies of assets, loaded them with debt, extracted $$$ & skipped away when the bets went bad. Students & taxpayers deserve to understand the shadowy role these firms play in an industry already fraught with abuse.

35% of for-profit students are enrolled in private equity-owned schools, & those schools have higher tuition, more student borrowing, & lower grad rates. Their business isn't educating students – it's sucking down federal student aid, which makes up nearly all of their revenue.

Predatory for-profit colleges often load students with debt for useless degrees. They’re the worst, & for-profit schools owned by private equity firms are the worst of the worst. So & I are investigating private equity takeovers of colleges.

The majority of Americans support common sense gun safety laws & are urging the Senate to take action. But McConnell & the are too scared of the to act. Let's call this out for what it is: corruption, plain & simple.

The game is up: Amazon pretends to be a neutral marketplace platform, but it bulldozes competition by juicing the search results for its own products. Reports say even Amazon’s own lawyers identify this as an antitrust problem. The must take action.

Out of business is exactly where Purdue Pharma belongs. But if they think they can use bankruptcy to escape accountability, after creating the worst public health crisis of our time, they are mistaken.

Hurricane Dorian devastated the Bahamas, but the Trump administration made the heartless decision not to grant Temporary Protected Status to impacted Bahamians. I joined in introducing a bill to undo the administration’s immoral decision.

I’m proud of our Boston & Springfield students for standing up to the gun lobby to end gun violence. Our students are leading the fight to keep our schools & streets safe, & our government must follow their lead.

One year ago today, homes were destroyed, lives were upended, and we lost Leonel Rondon in the tragic and totally preventable Merrimack Valley gas explosions We can’t bring him back, but we can honor his memory by fighting for legislation to ensure this never happens again.
