.: an Illinois resident who recently vaped – and got sick with severe respiratory illness – has now died. Why are you allowing these dangerous and addictive products to remain on the market? Do something.

Wishing this brave officer a speedy recovery. We have to do better by our nation’s law enforcement officers – it’s far too easy for violent people to get their hands on guns they should never be allowed to possess.

We should be doing everything in our power to help keep innocent families out of harm’s way by granting TPS to Venezuelans already living in the US. Sadly, President Trump and Senate Republicans are blocking TPS for Venezuela, putting lives at risk.

These products are not safe, and they should not be on the market. It is time for the to get off the sidelines and protect our children from these dangerous products.

E-cigarettes like JUUL are addicting our children to nicotine in record numbers, and now they are sending teenagers to the hospital with serious vaping-related respiratory illnesses.

The Trump admin delayed BILLIONS in desperately needed disaster recovery funds for Puerto Rico & USVI. Money already allocated by Congress! We're asking to provide time frame & requirements for disbursement so American citizens finally receive assistance they deserve.

We can all agree, robocalls are annoying. It’s time to give consumers the ability to fight back.

is a reminder that we still haven’t achieved and closed the wage gap, especially for women of color. I’m proud to cosponsor the Paycheck Fairness Act and will keep fighting to achieve equal pay for all.

Big Pharma spends billions to flood the airwaves with drug ads, but sued to avoid having to tell patients what their drugs cost. and I will keep fighting to require price tags in direct-to-consumer drug ads, which will lower costs and empower patients.

The Trump Administration knows very well that this rule will be swiftly blocked by the courts, but they continue to play political games instead of working with Congress on a bipartisan basis to fix our broken immigration system.

Punishing migrant children with indefinite detention is immoral and un-American and will not make us safer. We can secure our border while treating families fleeing horrific persecution with compassion & humanity. I strongly oppose any efforts to eliminate the Flores Agreement.

The President’s scorched-Earth trade policies aren’t working, and American consumers are paying the price.

Yet another loophole in the system making it too easy for those prohibited from buying guns to get their hands on them. Facebook must address this misuse of their platform & the Senate needs to pass universal background check legislation to prevent this kind of workaround.

Gun violence is traumatizing an entire generation. That’s why I've passed legislation to help children who face trauma & joined forces with hospitals to launch the Chicago HEAL Initiative, aimed at addressing the root causes of this violence.

NEWS: It’s been just two weeks and the Trump administration is already looking at putting kids back in Homestead — a for-profit child prison — instead of in available state-licensed facilities or foster homes.
