President-elect Joe Biden appointed 9 people to senior White House staff positions today. None are his children. None are married to his children. All are qualified.

At the recommendation of the Office of the Attending Physician, I received the COVID-19 vaccine. This vaccine is the culmination of decades of scientific research applied to a new virus that has claimed the lives of so many. I trust it and you should too. This is how we win.

I am safe in a secure location. The President of the United States is inciting a coup. We will not be intimidated. We will not be deterred.

I want to urge @POTUS  to join the 163 member countries of @wto  in supporting the nomination of @NOIweala  to head the World Trade Organization. She is uniquely qualified and has the vision to help the WTO evolve during these unprecedented times.

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.

Especially in Los Angeles, DREAMers are students, teachers, coaches, mentors, entrepreneurs and community leaders. They are American in every way except on paper. Today, we vote on the #DreamAndPromiseAct  to provide justice and fairness for our nation’s DREAMers. #HomeIsHere

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.


It's been 93 days since Breonna Taylor was murdered and the only arrest made in relation to her death was the arrest of her partner, who was charged for defending himself against the intruders invading their home.

Jacob Blake broke up a fight and police shot him in the back seven times. Dylan Roof killed nine people at Emanuel AME Church and police bought him Burger King.

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.

If the AG can't name ONE org that's a "black identity extremist" group, we're faced with one reality -- the FBI & DOJ are reverting back to a time when citizens were surveilled based on the color of their skin and their level of activism exercising their first amendment right.
