@the_IDB Pres. has always been someone from #LatinAmerica who understands its challenges. The Trump admin. wants an ideologue not from the region. @RepBarbaraLee and I led a letter to @stevenmnuchin1 urging reconsideration. Partisan IDB leadership means a partisan mission too.

In 1970, a Guatemalan couple made the impossible decision to send their daughter to the U.S. for a better life. That young girl was me. Today, I took to the House floor to share my story and speak out against the terrible Republican immigration bills. #KeepFamiliesTogether
Guatemala is one of the most violent & impoverished countries in the world—far from a safe place for vulnerable asylum seekers to seek refuge. I'm leading 15 of my colleagues in urging @DHSMcAleenan to immediately rescind this irresponsible "third safe country" agreement.
