Instead, the Administration should have encouraged Israel to welcome the visit as an opportunity for Reps. Tlaib and Omar to learn from the Israeli people. We have to be willing to talk if we want people to change their views.

Israel should allow U.S. Representatives Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar to visit. The Trump Administration made a mistake in urging Israel to prevent them from entering the country.

In addition, last year I cosponsored the Fix NICS Act to improve the quality of background checks. This new law requires federal agencies to submit all relevant information to the background check system to make it more complete.

I have long supported closing loopholes in background checks to prevent the sale of firearms to criminals and individuals with serious mental illness.

The vast majority of Americans care deeply about their friends, families, and neighbors. We have united in the wake of tragedies in the past, and we can do so again to stop this violence.

Early reports suggest that the El Paso shooter was motivated by bigotry and a hateful white supremacist ideology. This evil is a threat to the fabric of our society.

These brutal attacks, the third mass shooting in a week, are horrific. I am grateful to the brave first responders in El Paso, Dayton, and Gilroy who quickly stopped the perpetrators of these vicious, hateful acts.

Russia’s efforts to interfere in our elections remain relentless. I’m proud to join Sen. in cosponsoring the bipartisan FIRE Act to require presidential candidates to immediately call the FBI if they are contacted by a foreign power attempting to target our elections.

Congress must take strong action to deter foreign nations from attempting to disrupt our elections. We should also move forward with securing our electoral process, the cornerstone of our democracy.

The Senate Intelligence Committee on which I serve has thoroughly investigated Russia’s relentless efforts to interfere in U.S. elections. The release of the first chapter of our report provides irrefutable evidence of Russia’s ongoing attempts to undermine our institutions.

Dan Coats is one of the finest public servants I have ever known. He led the intelligence community with integrity and skill, and his departure is a huge loss to our country.

During the hearing, Ruby told me that she plans to become a scientist when she grows up, & if no one has found a cure for Type 1 diabetes by then, she will. She's going to throw a huge party to celebrate, & I can’t wait to attend. Thank you, Ruby, for sharing your story with us!

Ruby Anderson is a tenacious young diabetes advocate from Yarmouth, Maine. Diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at just 23 months old, Ruby has been pushing for a cure since she could talk.

Former DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson makes several excellent points in his column about the crisis on the Southern border. Well worth reading.

It was wonderful to see thousands of Mainers come out to celebrate the anniversary of our nation’s founding. As the largest 4th of July celebration in Maine, Eastport’s parade is a patriotic and heartwarming tradition, and I was honored to participate once again this year.
