Although #HispanicHeritageMonth  has come to a close, the work of lifting up Latino voices never stops. Proud to see the Senate unanimously passed my resolution celebrating the invaluable contributions of Latinos in New Jersey and all across the nation.

The #FreedomToVoteAct  is about maintaining a functioning democracy where elections are decided by the voters, not by the politicians, dark money or special interests. If Republicans can’t even get on board with simply debating that idea, it’s time to rethink their line of work.

GOOD NEWS! @SBAgov  is stepping in to help NJ small businesses recover from #HurricaneIda  with low-interest disaster loans. For more information about eligibility and to apply please visit:

Today is #LatinaEqualPayDay : the day that Latinas’ average pay catches up to what white men made LAST YEAR. Latina workers kept our nation running during the pandemic, and they deserve better. RT if you think it's time we passed the #PaycheckFairnessAct  to close the wage gap.

When the economy booms, it is our increasingly diverse workforce that leads the way. And when the economy struggles, it is communities of color that are hit the hardest. But when it comes to the decisions that most directly impact our economy, we're nowhere to be found.

To my Republican colleagues who dismiss ANY action on climate change as a "liberal wishlist" — since when is protecting our national security controversial? Climate change is among our greatest threats, and America must lead the way in confronting it.

Congress received notification that POTUS officially withdrew the U.S. from the @WHO  in the midst of a pandemic. To call Trump’s response to COVID chaotic & incoherent doesn't do it justice. This won't protect American lives or interests—it leaves Americans sick & America alone.

“You’ll have to ask Russia,” is a pretty incredible response from a Senior@StateDept  official about the Trump Administration’s views on #Russia ’s nuclear capabilities. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee needs answers so we can make informed policy decisions.

Okay this is absurd. One page of the new #GOPTaxPlan  is crossed out with an ex. Another page is just a line. Is that a crossout? Is this page part of the bill? WHY AM I ASKING THESE QUESTIONS HOURS BEFORE WE VOTE ON IT?? #GOPTaxScam 

That feeling when you own the President of the United States and can do whatever you want.

If Beijing abandons “One Country, Two Systems”, undermines the Basic Law, and violates its legal obligations under the Joint Declaration, the US policy response, as called for in the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, should be swift and clear.

If the NPC takes this step it will no longer be possible for anyone to pretend anymore that Beijing respects #HongKong 's autonomy.
