Israel’s denial of entry to Congresswomen Tlaib & Omar is beneath the dignity of the great State of #Israel. @realDonaldTrump's statements about the Congresswomen are a sign of ignorance & disrespect, & beneath the dignity of the Office of the President.
In honor of today’s 7th anniversary of the implementation of DACA, @HouseDemocrats are reminded of our promise to #ProtectTheDream. We owe it to the Dreamers to continue to urge @senatemajldr McConnell to bring this House-passed legislation, HR 6, up for a vote.
Since 1935, #SocialSecurity has ushered in transformational progress for the American people. Yet, Republicans have been determined to recklessly privatize this critical initiative, undermining the health and financial security of millions of Americans.
The escalating use of force perpetrated against the #HongKong protestors is extremely alarming. In the Congress, Democrats & Republicans continue to stand united with the people of Hong Kong in demanding their right to a hopeful, free & democratic future.
This hateful, bigoted rule is a direct assault on our nation’s proud heritage as a beacon of hope and opportunity for all and a clear attempt to demonize and terrorize the newcomers who make America more American. It will be swiftly challenged and defeated in the courts.
Acting US Citizenship & Immigration Services Dir. Cuccinelli offers a Trump admin. policy change to famous poem attached to Statue of Liberty: "Give me your tired and your poor who can stand on their own two feet and who will not become a public charge.”
Yesterday, our delegation visited La Lomita Chapel in Mission, TX, where we prayed for all those suffering in the Northern Triangle. We then spoke w/ migrants at a processing center & concluded our trip w/ a visit to Sister Norma & Catholic Charities Humanitarian Respite Center.
Yesterday, our delegation had a series of productive meetings, including with NGOs, civil society and justice sector leaders. It was a particular honor to meet with the family of Berta Caceres as we continue the fight for justice and human rights in her memory.
Yesterday, our delegation met with El Salvador’s President @nayibbukele and discussed the need to address the drivers of migration. We also paid homage to those lost to the 1989 Jesuit priests massacre & had the honor of meeting the US Marine detachment who serve at the embassy.
Republicans make perfectly clear what GOP control of Washington means for families: soaring costs, worse coverage & the end of protections for people w/ pre-existing conditions. @HouseDemocrats are fighting relentlessly to stop this health care sabotage.
.@RepMcGovern is proud of the work @HouseDemocrats have done to pass commonsense, bipartisan gun violence prevention legislation. However, this legislation cannot save lives until @senatemajldr McConnell, the self-proclaimed “grim reaper”, calls the Senate back for a vote.
.@realDonaldTrump, after the horrific loss in Gilroy, El Paso, Dayton & Chicago, I urge you to call @senatemajldr McConnell & the US Senate back to DC to vote on House-passed bipartisan gun violence prevention legislation. It is our duty to #DoSomething. https://www.speaker.gov/newsroom/8819-3/
Make no mistake, the GOP is still fighting to deny 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions the right to health care coverage. This is unacceptable. @HouseDemocrats believe every American has a right to quality, affordable health care. #ProtectOurCare
Countless Americans have fought to safeguard and expand the right to vote. 54 years after the Voting Rights Act became law, @HouseDemocrats remain committed to ensure that every American can exercise their right without interference. https://www.speaker.gov/newsroom/8619/
Today, the world lost a storyteller of unmatched empathy, elegance and power. Toni Morrison’s belief that language is the “measure of our lives” leaves an extraordinary, inspiring inheritance, and her beautiful writing will continue to be a blessing for generations to come.
In less than 24 hours, another American community has been devastated by the tragedy of gun violence, this time in Dayton, Ohio. The hearts of all Americans break for the families & friends of those injured & murdered in this act of terror. #EnoughIsEnough
