I think we can all agree #2020 has been quite a year.

The people doing the essential work aren't the Fortune 500 CEO or investment banker. It's the custodian, child care worker, or bus driver who have ALWAYS been essential - it isn't enough to simply tell them “thank you” and call them heroes. Actions speak louder than words.

Americans shouldn't have to choose between protecting our health or our democracy. We've already seen the impacts of the pandemic's chaos in our elections. It's time for the Senate to and pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.

Let's be clear, Russia is trying to interfere with the 2020 election right now. Democrat or Republican, Obama or Trump Administration, we should all share the same objective - protecting the integrity of our elections. I agree with Sally Yates, do you?

Immigrants are disproportionately working in essential jobs to keep Americans safe – often at great risk to their own lives. But many of them haven't received a $1200 check. and I are urging Mitch McConnell to ensure everyone has equal access to coronavirus relief.

The truest thing that has said about this pandemic is that he doesn't take responsibility at all. In fact, it’s one of the few things he’s lived up to - to the detriment of millions who are now suffering because he’s failed at his job.

4.8 million confirmed cases. 158,000 deaths and counting. The CDC is predicting between 5,000 - 11,000 more deaths by August 22nd. And thinks “it is what it is”?

Further eroding public confidence in Pentagon leadership, uses a loophole to put his cronies in positions for which they'll likely not be confirmed. Anthony Tata would have faced tough scrutiny in the committee for his racist, bigoted, Islamophobic history.

. & I are sending this message to Sen. McConnell: immigrants pay taxes and are essential to our nation’s health care infrastructure & economy. They deserve support in any relief legislation.

It took an independent judiciary to impose a nationwide injunction against ’s cruel and dangerous public charge rule. If Trump spent as much time addressing the pandemic as he does attacking immigrants, lives would be saved and our country would be better off.

Today as we said goodbye to our much beloved John Lewis, was busy attacking what John fought for - voting rights. Amidst a pandemic, whether you're a Democrat, Republican, Independent - we should be able to vote safely. One of the safest ways? Voting by mail.

All across the country, COFA citizens work in essential industries, but they lack the health insurance to protect them amidst a pandemic. The House restored COFA Medicaid eligibility in the HEROES Act. It’s time for the Senate to join them in righting a historic wrong.

As have been saying all along, Americans WANT to go back to work. If these benefits go away, millions of Americans will take a 60% pay cut. And the fact is there aren’t millions of jobs for them to return to. It’s on Congress to until this crisis is over.

At a time when states like Hawaii are already sending out mail-in ballots for primary elections, is setting the stage for a baseless challenge in November. This is a concerted effort on the part of this President to undermine the election.

General Tata’s record of blatant racism and maliciously spreading conspiracy theories makes him unfit to serve as DoD’s #3 civilian. While his nomination is par for the course for , he doesn't represent today’s military values and culture.

Just two weeks ago, talked about a path to citizenship for DREAMers. Yet, despite a SCOTUS ruling, he and his cronies are doing everything they can to derail DACA. The cruelty is the point.

The House passed a COVID relief bill 10 weeks ago. Mitch McConnell has the Senate confirming judges (we’ve confirmed 200 as of last month). Why this approach is wrong in my op-ed:
