Roylan Hernandez-Diaz's death in solitary confinement is a horrific and preventable tragedy. We will not stand by while ICE tortures people who are exercising their right to seek asylum in the United States. https://www.laaclu.org/en/press-releases/aclu-louisiana-statement-death-asylum-seeker-roylan-hernandez-diaz-ice-custody
Lawmakers have a responsibility to reform our surveillance laws to prevent the warrantless spying of people in the United States
Body cameras were promised as a tool for officer accountability. They should not be twisted into surveillance systems to be used against communities. Congress must step in to safeguard our privacy rights and civil liberties from CBP's dystopian plans.

Our thoughts are with the Cummings family during their time of grief. @RepCummings worked with us on a number of pressing civil liberties and civil rights issues, including opposing the Patriot Act and fighting for more equitable funding for students in @BaltCitySchools
We recommend that states decline this new voluntary request from the Census Bureau. It appears to be yet another scheme to dilute the political power of communities of color.
The Census Bureau is asking states to voluntarily share driver's license records as part of the Trump administration's efforts to produce detailed data about the U.S. citizenship status of every person living in the country.
Cyntoia's ordeal is not just deeply unjust, but it is also a clear example of what has driven our mass incarceration crisis. Cyntoia's story is an incredibly brave one, and she is not alone.
Cyntoia Brown-Long was just 16 years old when she was sentenced to life in prison for murder, but the case was far from clear-cut. After 15 years behind bars, Cyntoia is now free after being granted clemency following a celeb-led campaign to reconsider her sentence.
Congress has now twice disapproved of Trump’s abuse of emergency powers for a border wall. We thank all lawmakers who rejected this blatant power grab. With this veto, Trump is still defying Congress to further his xenophobic and illegal vanity project.
In the middle of this Democratic debate, Trump just vetoed the Senate bill that would end his emergency declaration to get money to build his wall.
