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.”
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.
"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.
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.
