Delaying Garland’s AG confirmation endangers national security in the midst of the rising threat of domestic terrorism. As Republicans impede approval of the nation’s chief law enforcer, the Capitol remains in lockdown & violent extremists continue plotting.
I couldn’t be prouder to introduce Brenda Mallory at her nomination hearing. Brenda's CT roots, tough work ethic, commitment to coalition building, & belief in the importance of environmental justice make her the perfect person to Chair the Council on Environmental Quality.
As @endforcedarb 's map shows, all across the country people are being denied their day in court & companies are evading accountability through forced arbitration. Congress must pass the FAIR Act to eliminate these harmful agreements.
We are still fighting to right this monstrous wrong. @JoaquinCastrotx & I have introduced a bill to ensure all separated families can be reunited permanently in the United States. Congress must pass this legislation & commit to a simple truth: families belong together.
