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.

The @realDonaldTrump Admin’s proposal to gut protections that prevent federal contractors from discriminating against #LGBTQ Americans, women & other minorities displays their blatantly bigoted and downright dangerous policies.

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.

#Brexit cannot be allowed to imperil the Good Friday Agreement. The peace of the Good Friday Agreement is treasured by the American people and will be fiercely defended on a bicameral and bipartisan basis in the US Congress.

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.

Quoted@NBCNews

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.”

The assault on the Endangered Species Act made by the Trump Admin showcases their unwavering commitment to placing the needs of special interests above public interest, ignoring the need to protect endangered & threatened species.

Two years ago, America watched in horror as white supremacists incited and committed violence on the streets of Charlottesville, taking the life of Heather Heyer. We remain committed to honoring her memory and ending bigotry in all its forms.

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.

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
