I’m concerned about reports that ICE continues to deport immigrants during this global pandemic, especially to countries like Haiti that lack adequate public health infrastructure.

I again call on DHS to halt deportations of those who pose no public safety threat.

Dr. Tony Fauci and others warn there is not enough evidence that hydroxychloroquine effectively treats #COVID19 , but we have enough evidence that Donald Trump’s relationship with the manufacturer is toxic. This conflict of interest must be investigated.

We need an all hands on deck approach to combating the spread of #COVID19 . But efforts by Google and others in the private sector to stop this pandemic cannot come at the expense of individuals’ personal privacy.

There are thousands of people who desperately need financial relief but don’t have an address or bank account. We cannot leave them behind. I’m joining @SenTinaSmith  to call on the Treasury to ensure homeless Americans get their #COVID19  stimulus payments.

Workers at food retailers like Instacart, Walmart, and Whole Foods are on the front lines of #COVID19 . They risk their lives every day. For their safety and your own, join me in demanding these stores and workers get the guidance and resources they need.

For many Americans, community health centers are their only access point for health care. This funding will ensure that as we combat #COVID19 , our Massachusetts community health centers remain an integral component of our social safety net.

Widespread testing is critical to stopping the spread of #COVID19 . But we still have serious delays, with backlogs of up to 160,000 tests. @SenatorDurbin , @RepDuckworth , and I call on CMS to expand testing capacity so our labs have the flexibility they need to meet the demand.

As Americans’ reliance on online conferencing grows, individuals are increasingly vulnerable to cyber-attacks & inappropriate access of their personal data. FTC must issue guidance to help businesses understand their responsibilities & comply with the law.

We shouldn't accept the declarations by some in power who say we have to stray from the guiding principles & civil liberties that make us who we are. They are wrong. We don't have to forgo all privacy in a pandemic nor watch a surveillance state take root.


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

The brave students & activists at #PolyU  represent the future of a democratic #HongKong . America stands with them, not police who are trying to crush this movement on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party. We urge no use of lethal force. #StandWithHongKong 

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.

BREAKING: The Senate just voted to restore #NetNeutrality ! We won. To all of those who kept fighting and didn’t get discouraged: you did this. You raised your voices and we heard you. Thank you. Now the fight continues. On to the House!
