I’ve been fighting to build the @latinomuseum  since 2003, and we’re finally one step closer. It's time we showcase American Latinos as part of the long history of this country—a history that preceded this country.

Saddened by the passing of U.S. Air Force Captain Kelliann Leli—one of our state's own. Our nation will forever be indebted to her service. My deepest sympathies to her family, friends, and fellow servicemembers.

Thanks to @NBCLatino  for inviting me to come talk about why we must share the stories of Latinos and Latinas who shaped our nation by building a @latinomuseum  on Washington’s National Mall. Tune in at 12 PM:

No one is immune to the mental stress that comes with this pandemic. We're calling on @NIMHgov  to prioritize efforts to study and understand the impact of the #COVID19  pandemic on the mental health of children and young adults. Read our letter 👇

Incredibly proud to have helped secure inclusion of a provision in the NDAA to do what President Trump refused to do: Officially determine on behalf of the U.S. govt that #Turkey  took delivery of Russian S-400 defense systems and therefore will be sanctioned under existing law.

These parties pose a significant health risk—not only to attendees, but to those who must staff these events or feel pressured to attend. Sec. Pompeo should put the health & well-being of employees and workers first, and cancel upcoming holiday parties.

For 2 years, world leaders have stood in solidarity with Venezuela's Interim President@jguaido  as he faces severe political repression and a devastating humanitarian crisis. @SenatorDurbin  & I are calling on Democratic nations to reject Maduro's illegitimate electoral process.

This is another big mistake by the Trump Admin. Somalia is entering a fractious election season & Al Shabaab remains a potent force in the country. Hastily withdrawing U.S. troops without a political strategy will have serious consequences for the region.


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.

Just read the FBI report on Kavanaugh - if that’s an investigation, it’s a bullshit investigation.

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 

It's been half a year since #HongKong  citizens took to the streets in the millions to protest the erosion of democracy and their rights. Violence against students and protestors is rising—some of the worst seen in the city in decades.

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

“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.

Congress did its job, Mr. President. We are proudly standing with the people of #HongKong , freedom and democracy. The question is: Will you?
