Hard to think of something more cowardly, cruel, and un-American than turning away people fleeing violence. This administration has no humanity. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/trump-administration-moves-end-asylum-protections-most-central-american-migrants-n1029866

It was such a pleasure to see Kyle and his dad again in Dubuque, and to see the great work he does with the help of his job coach! We should make sure all Americans have access to job training that meets their skills and unlocks their potential.
State legislatures are some of the most urgent battlegrounds on issues that affect us every day, from abortion to voting rights. To protect our values, we have to build our party.

Recently, I was asked a question that I think a lot of people have: What is white privilege, and what should it mean to people who feel left behind? Here's why this conversation is so important to me:

Had an amazing afternoon at @progressiowa’s Corn Feed, talking with caucus-goers about everything from climate change and health care to what it’s going to take to defeat President Trump.
The birther-in-chief continues to spout racist, un-American garbage to distract from his failing administration. Democratic women of the House do more to make our country great than Trump ever will. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/14/us/politics/trump-twitter-squad-congress.html

The threat of deportation raids has no real purpose except to terrify families and sow division. This is another racist attack on immigrants to distract from Trump's failures. For anyone who's scared: We won't stop fighting. For now, know your rights: https://twitter.com/ACLU/status/1149490457698635779
The Trump administration's family separation policy is a stain on our country. Now, they're doubling down on their cruelty with their threat of raids. Every minute this crisis proceeds is an indictment on our humanity—and every one of us needs to refuse to comply.
It's hard to put into words what we're seeing our government do to immigrants. There can no longer be any doubt that this is a politically-driven crisis, a violation of human rights, and an atrocity. It has to stop. What more will it take? https://twitter.com/aflores/status/1149819146126757889

The mission of the bus tour was to go to some of the many places where President Trump's broken promises have hurt working people most. Listening to their stories only reinforced my belief that we need a president who's brave enough to deliver results where Trump failed.

Nila works long, hard hours at UPMC, but she still struggles to make sure her sons have the health care they need. No one should be put in this position. We need a president who believes that health care is a right and not a privilege, and has a plan to make that happen.

President Trump promised workers that he would stop companies from shipping U.S. jobs overseas. Instead, he gave massive tax breaks to those companies—and did nothing when they gave huge bonuses to executives and outsourced jobs anyway.

At our Pittsburgh roundtable, we discussed one of our biggest health care crises: skyrocketing prescription drug prices. We need to take serious steps to hold drug companies accountable, get costs down, and make health care a right once and for all. https://medium.com/team-gillibrand/he-broke-it-well-fix-it-91ccfa69d763

Prescription drug prices are out of control. Hard-working Americans are having to choose between paying for their medication or keeping food on the table.
