The Trump administration has been blocking California from deploying $650 million of our OWN MONEY that would go to cities and counties across our state to help solve homelessness. We refuse to wait any longer -- we're taking matters into our own hands.

“Despite the relentless efforts of special-interest groups such as the National Rifle Association...many Americans will no longer accept a brittle and suspect interpretation of the Second Amendment at the expense of human lives.”

Going to the DMV has, for too long, been a SLOW, time consuming experience. We’re working hard to fix that. In the last year, we have cut delays nearly in half.

As the Bible says: For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat — when I provided a paystub. I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink — with proof of work. I was a stranger and you invited me in— once I was employed.

This year, CA invested $1 billion to fight homelessness -- with $650M in Emergency Aid to cities and counties. But Trump has been BLOCKING us from deploying our OWN money. NO MORE. We’re unleashing hundreds of millions of dollars to tackle this crisis.

It's insane that this is a problem -- but it's our reality: NO ONE should have to choose between buying their groceries, paying their rent, or picking up their prescription. This is progress.

“Light drives economic opportunity, public safety, and social connectivity.”

It shouldn’t be our children’s job to clean up the mess made by previous generations. They’re inheriting the worst effects of climate change. We must act. NOW.

You don’t believe in climate change. You are excused from this conversation.

This barely made headlines yesterday... Vulnerable children. Being forced to sleep outside. On the ground. On top of rocks. In the dirt. In CBP custody. We cannot become numb to these images. We cannot let this become the new normal.

RECAP: Nazis: very fine people Racist sheriff: unfairly treated Black athletes exercising 1A rights: sons of b****** and uninvited to WH.

"Please don't leave the childs with cryingness and everything...I need my dad by me." Watch this. Ask yourself what we're doing. What we're tolerating. What we stand for. There are many complicated issues we face today -- ripping kids away from their parents is not one of them.

Again. On Sunday, it was Gilroy. Today, it’s El Paso. Our malls. Our festivals. Our concerts. Our churches. Our synagogues. Our movie theaters. Our classrooms. Our homes. This is an epidemic. This is a crisis. — Treat it like one. — We need the Senate to act. Now.

TODAY: Trump chooses to resume the death penalty, CA halts it. Trump tries to roll back auto emission standards, CA strikes a deal directly w/car companies to protect them. Trump tries to eliminate the ACA, CA works w/other states to preserve it. I’ll take our side of history.

There are no words for the cowardice of @GOP  leadership right now. We should never forget their spinelessness when it mattered most.

Today, I met with a 12-year-old who was shot while in a bounce house. A grandmother mourning the loss of her 6-year-old grandson. This is America today -- the shootings continue. Loved ones are buried. Children are gunned down. And Congress does nothing.
