Today, the House is taking action to ensure that no president or administration can ever again abuse its authority by waging discrimination on the basis of religion. The #NoBanAct  restores the separation of powers by limiting executive action to issue future religious bans.

Today is a solemn day in America. Join me and my colleagues at the United States Capitol as we stand in solidarity after the Derek Chauvin murder trial verdict is announced.

George Floyd should be alive today. His family’s calls for justice for his murder were heard around the world. He did not die in vain. We must make sure other families don't suffer the same racism, violence & pain, and we must enact the George Floyd #JusticeInPolicing  Act.

Today, we celebrate the beautiful life of our friend and colleague, Congressman Alcee Hastings, honoring his legacy of advancing liberty and justice for all.

For over 200 yrs the people of DC – who pay taxes, fight in our wars & power our economy – have been denied their right to fully participate in our democracy. It is well past time to grant them the rights they have been fighting for & deserve! #DCStatehood 

D.C. residents pay more federal taxes than 21 states, have a larger budget than 12 states & have a population larger than two states. The House will pass the Washington, D.C. Admission Act so residents will be closer to gaining the rights that they are fighting for and deserve.

A year after US Army Specialist Vanessa Guillén’s disappearance & murder, we remain heartbroken & outraged. Justice is needed for Vanessa & all servicemembers who face the epidemic of sexual violence in our armed forces. Congress won’t stop until we have #JusticeForVanessaGuillen 


American elections should be decided by the American people, not by the Russian Government. Retweet if you agree!

Now more than ever, we need the truth. And the truth is that Donald Trump dismantled the infrastructure handed to him which was meant to plan for and overcome a pandemic, resulting in unnecessary deaths and economic disaster.

Delaying direct payments to vulnerable families just to print his name on the check is another shameful example of President Trump’s catastrophic failure to treat this crisis with the urgency it demands.

Earlier today, I spoke with Postmaster General DeJoy regarding his alleged pause in operational changes. During our conversation, he admitted he has no intention of replacing the sorting machines, blue mailboxes and other infrastructure that have been removed.

Mr. President, sign the bill to keep government open! Urge McConnell and McCarthy to agree with the Democratic unanimous consent request for $2,000 direct payments! This can be done by noon on Christmas Eve!
