At a certain point, we need to ask ourselves how many more videos of police violence do we need to see before we act. Yesterday, the House of Representatives passed the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act because my colleagues and I believe the answer is zero. Onward.

We need a permanent solution NOW. Congress must provide a pathway to citizenship. It can’t wait.

When the Build Back Better Act is signed into law, no matter your insurance, you won't pay more than $35 out-of-pocket for insulin.

What’s happening in the Supreme Court didn’t just happen overnight — it took years and years of Republican activism and donations to get them to the brink of taking away the rights of millions of women in this country. We must fight back.

I will be heading to the House Floor next week to formally enter Nipsey Hussle’s contributions to South Los Angeles into the Congressional Record where it will be a part of United States history forever.

We have been told that families aren’t being separated anymore. I’m in Texas right now. Everyone should know that that is a lie.

If a parent locked their child in a cage without soap or toothpaste, they would be charged with child abuse. If a parent were to put their 8 year-old in charge of caring for a toddler, they could be charged with child endangerment. Then the parents could go to JAIL.

This is a video of the President laughing at the idea of shooting immigrants to stop them from coming into the US. If one person is harmed as a result of this speech, EVERY SINGLE PERSON who failed to condemn it is complicit. Blood will be on your hands.
