Proud to join @SenDuckworth  & 23 of my @SenateDems  colleagues in calling on Senator McConnell to provide relief to Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders in the US. More than 130,000 TPS holders are essential workers during this pandemic—we can’t afford to lose them.

In a more respectful time, Mr. Vice President, there would be a Justice named Merrick Garland on the Supreme Court. But Garland never got so much as a hearing or even a courtesy visit from Senator McConnell.
