President Trump’s weak executive actions don’t come close to meeting the needs of our children, workers or families. We need to provide our states and local gov'ts with billions in aid or another 4 million Americans could be out of work. #FailureToLead

The coronavirus in America today. ➡️5,000,000 cases. ➡️160,000 dead. ➡️55 million first-time unemployment claims. Yet, Republicans refuse more unemployment benefits. They keep the economy going and DON'T discourage people from working. Republicans need to act NOW!!

Today marks the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act. That law was supposed to protect the right to vote for every American. Yet, the fight continues. We must pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and secure this right for good. #ProtectOurVote  #VRA55

VP Biden chose Kamala Harris as his running mate. There are people who have questioned her past. I've learned in the past several days that the past is the past and you have to put it behind you to move forward in a positive manner.

President has found no depths to which he will not sink. His politicized use of the 9/11 attacks, which killed so many of my constituents and left scars in my community, is beneath anything I ever imagined. His dangerous rhetoric against is sick.

From the man who launched his political career by claiming Obama wasn't born in the U.S. #followthefacts 

#Sessions should resign immediately. We need an independent, outside, & bipartisan investigation to determine Trump's Russia ties

Today, my colleagues and I proposed The Justice in Policing Act. I was proud to sponsor it and I look forward to voting for it in the future. It is reform that brings more accountability to police actions and it has been needed for a long time.

Today is the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech! Only when we fulfill his vision of strength through diversity and equality will America be truly... "free at last..." #IHaveaDream 

Right now, 800,000 #DREAMers  need our help. DREAMers contribute to our communities and boost our economy. I stand with you. #DefendDACA 

Trump has spent more than $300,000 of taxpayer money to rent golf carts. Meanwhile, America's teachers are headed back to school, often struggling to buy school supplies to educate the nation's children.

@realDonaldTrump , your policies are terrible. Even Republicans are struggling to defend you.

You have constituents evacuating their homes because of a potential tsunami, and THIS is your focus? First-responders are out there putting their lives on the line to save people, and THIS is what you’re worried about? #Kodiak  #tsunamiwatch 

#TRUMP100DAYS approaching w/ little to show but broken promises & failures - no jobs plan, no infrastructure plan, refused to buy American
