The police shooting of Jacob Blake yesterday in Kenosha, Wisc., is just the latest example of law enforcement using excessive force against Black Americans. My thoughts are with him and his family.

It’s been two months since the House passed the #JusticeInPolicing  Act. But Senate Republicans still refuse to give it a vote. That’s unacceptable. Senate leadership needs to bring this bill to the floor immediately.

Too many innocent men and women have been injured or killed by police, and it’s past time to act. Let’s vote. #JusticeInPolicing

This isn’t a partisan issue. Last week I was joined by @RandPaul  , @SenatorCollins  and @ChrisVanHollen  in sending a letter to the president to encourage him to extend New START. This is an issue of humanity. We can’t allow nuclear weapons to destroy the world as we know it.

As we mark the beginning of #HispanicHeritageMonth , I’d like to recognize all the Hispanic leaders who helped make California what it is today. Our diversity is our strength and I’m so proud of California’s diverse community.

The country lost a truly amazing woman tonight with the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She may have been small of stature but she was an absolute giant of jurisprudence. Read my full statement:

Judiciary Committee Democrats to Chairman Graham: “There cannot be one set of rules for a Republican President and one set for a Democratic President, and considering a nominee before the next inauguration would be wholly inappropriate.” Full letter here:

When Merrick Garland was nominated in 2016 to fill Justice Scalia’s seat, we were 237 days away from an election. Now we’re just 42 days away from an election, yet Leader McConnell wants to jam a nominee through. That’s a dangerous double standard that can’t be allowed to stand.

My thoughts are with the family and friends of Charlie Morton, the firefighter who passed away while battling the El Dorado fire in the San Bernardino Mountains. His courageous work to protect Californians will never be forgotten.

UPDATE: Republicans rejected our motion to adjourn until Monday so senators could read the bill they just introduced. RT If you think senators should have time to read a bill that affects every single American.

Brett Kavanaugh used materials stolen from Democratic senators to advance President Bush's judicial nominees. He was asked about this in 2004, 2006 and this week. His answers were not true.

UPDATE: 43 senators now support our bill to bar children from being taken from their parents at the border. We still need a Republican senator to join. If you’re represented by a Republican senator, please ask them to cosponsor S.3036. #FamiliesBelongTogether
