We must address slavery's long-lasting economic and social impacts on African-Americans who continue to face discrimination. This legislation to consider proposals for reparations is just the first step in addressing systemic racism in the US.

It’s been 10 years since Congress increased the federal minimum wage – the longest time between increases in U.S. history. It’s time for Congress to pass the Act and give 40 million American workers the living wage they deserve.

Over the past 6 years, the Hawaii on the Hill Policy Summit has connected Hawaii business leaders with decision makers in Washington. I'm grateful for the strong participation we continue to see from across our state.

One year ago, Jeff Sessions tried to slam the door on asylum seekers fleeing gender- and gang-based violence. We must restore justice and fairness to our asylum system now.

I joined and the Hawaii State Society to honor King Kamehameha I at our annual lei draping. As we reflect on the importance of the Hawaiian language and culture today, we must continue to fight against attacks on programs and institutions that serve Native Hawaiians.

We should open an impeachment inquiry so we can get on with telling the public what really happened. We would be doing a service to our country if we talk about, shine a light, and educate America on ’s efforts to obstruct justice.

Trump falsely claims service members can't take any drugs, saying that's why transgender troops can't serve. "It's an example of how Trump just makes up things to bolster whatever it is that he's doing," says Sen. . "This is part of an all-out attack on LGBTQ people"

This is another cruelty punishing children who are fleeing violence and trauma. There is no end to the Trump administration's inhumanity.

Affordable housing is already enough of a burden in high cost of living states like Hawaii and across the nation. Instead of creating more barriers, we should all be working together to ensure safe, affordable housing is available to every American.

Carson recently proposed terminating housing benefits for families with mixed immigration status. By HUD's own estimate, 55,000 children would be evicted and displaced at the height of our affordable housing crisis.

Trump's budget request? It eliminates $34 million from housing for the elderly. It reduces funding by $27 million for those with disabilities. At those levels, the budget doesn't even provide funds to renew existing contracts.

Carson's own team sought to TRIPLE the min. rent paid by families receiving housing assistance, making it easier for authorities to impose stricter work requirements on those receiving benefits. Who's most affected? Single mothers. It would put nearly 1 million children at risk.
