We're going to do what we have to do to fix the Supreme Court.

In this moment of crisis, with the fate of our democracy on the line and a Republican-packed court, Congress can and must use its power to expand the Supreme Court.

I've been fighting to pass my GRACE Act, which prevents any president from admitting fewer than 125,000 refugees per year. No excuses - we cannot deprive some of the world’s most vulnerable people of hope. Let's make our status as a safe haven law.

Ethiopia's leaders must facilitate humanitarian access to Tigray. Eritrean forces must leave. This spiral has to stop to prevent civilian death and suffering.

Methane has 80x more global warming potential than CO2 over 20 years, and emissions of this potent greenhouse gas continue to rise. I'm urging President Biden to include a specific methane reduction target in the NDC and the dialogue at the Leaders on Climate Summit this week.

Russian authorities are responsible for the health and safety of Alexey Navalny while he's in custody on sham charges. As @jakesullivan  warned, there will be consequences if he dies on their watch.

It's Patriots' Day in Massachusetts and while we are not standing together cheering on marathon runners this year, we still get to celebrate an incredibly important achievement. Today is the day that everyone age 16 and older becomes eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.

The coronavirus vaccine is safe and it is life-saving. Go to now and schedule an appointment near you or preregister for a vaccine at a mass vaccination site.

Vice President Mondale was a rare statesman—equally at home fighting for civil rights and women's equality, protecting our rivers and natural environment, and representing us on the world stage with dignity. Extending my condolences to his family and his staff tonight.

Matching the scope and scale of the climate crisis means transforming our economy, creating millions of jobs, and delivering justice. The time is now. We're reintroducing the Green New Deal at 11AM ET and streaming it live on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.

Trump says there’s a war on coal iPhones weren't a war on rotary phones, they were a revolution The horseless carriage wasn’t a war on horses, it was a revolution The ice box wasn't a war on salted meats, it was a revolution #cleanenergy  isn't a war on coal, it's a revolution

We need to give everyone $2,000 a month until this crisis is over.

I will not take a meeting with Brett Kavanaugh. He has been nominated by someone implicated, and all but named as a co-conspirator, in federal crimes. His nomination is tainted and should be considered illegitimate.

Trump’s EPA just ended a key policy under the Clean Air Act. Here are a few of the pollutants you will be breathing more of as a result: Asbestos Arsenic Benzene Chloroform Cyanide Formaldehyde Lead Mercury If you're panicking about this, try to not take a deep breath.

I plan to introduce a Congressional Review Act resolution that would restore the Open Internet Order and reverse the ’s historic mistake of repealing . T #NetNeutralityis  fight is far from over.

Shame on you. I was 4 miles away at another facility on the same day. No one is being dishonest. These border facilities are a national disgrace, with human beings kept in conditions worse than prisons, children sleeping on floors. These facilities have become edifices to hate.

BREAKING: Chairman Grassley has unilaterally ruled 1/3 of the #Kavanaugh  records to be “Committee Confidential” meaning anyone not on Judiciary Committee cannot see them. That’s 79 Senators & the entire American public. It’s an unprecedented level of secrecy. #WhatAreTheyHiding ?

At the ICE facility I visited, I met a woman from Mexico who has lived here for 18 years. She called 911 after her husband brutally beat her. They turned her over to immigration authorities. She now fears deportation. She has 3 kids. There should be no agency with this mission.

Congress must pass the #HongKong  Human Rights & Democracy Act to support these brave protesters & send a message to Beijing that America will not stand for the Chinese Communist Party attempting to crush this movement for basic rights. #StandWithHongKong 

The new Congress needs to pass my legislation with @SenSanders  to give people $2,000 every month.
