Venezuelans in the U.S. face a dangerous situation at home. But @senatemajldr  McConnell & Senate Republicans are blocking a bipartisan bill to extend temporary protected status to them. We must vote to support Venezuelans fleeing violence & instability.

It is a good thing that President @realDonaldTrump  has backed off his rescission threat. The power of the purse is one of Congress’s most fundamental responsibilities. I hope he has learned the lesson not to play games with the budget.

Today is #BlackWomensEqualPay  Day. Black women make 61¢ for every $1 that a white man makes. Black women need and deserve #EqualPay . Period. We must #DemandMore  action and take a vote on the House-passed Paycheck Fairness Act in the Senate now.

Going after fentanyl traffickers is vital to stopping the flow of illicit opioids killing Americans I introduced the bipartisan Fentanyl Sanctions Act to help stop this flood of illegal drugs We have to stay tough on traffickers in places like China

The #AmazonRainforest  has an essential role in curbing climate change, but it’s burning at a record rate. We must take meaningful action to protect our planet and put an end to these fires.

President @realDonaldTrump ’s rudderless foreign policy all in a day: cancel a meeting with a NATO ally and invite Putin to a meeting he was kicked out of for illegally annexing Crimea.

Having seen firsthand the awful conditions the Trump administration subjects many migrant families to, it is imperative that the courts immediately block this rule from going into effect.


@senatemajldr  Mitch McConnell gave a speech earlier today on the Senate floor to express his frustration at being accused of blocking election security legislation. Here’s an easy way to stop being accused of blocking election security: Stop blocking it.

This will be called the #TrumpShutdown . There is no one who deserves the blame for the position we find ourselves in more than President Trump.

RT if you think Alabama’s new Senator should get a vote on the #GOPTaxScam 

Happily talk re: my contact w Mr. Putin & his associates, took place in '03 in full view of press & public under oath. Would you &your team?

In my long career in politics, I have not seen a more regressive piece of legislation, so devoid of a rationale, so ill-suited for the condition of the country, so removed from the reality of what the American people need.

. should heed his own words: “if there is a shutdown I think it would be a tremendously negative mark on the president of the United States. He's the one that has to get people together.” #TrumpShutdown
