Rep. Roybal Allard On Facebook

Welcomed a group led by East Los Angeles Women's Center Executive Director Barbara Kappos (left) to my Commerce office today to discuss the future of funding for the Violence Against Women Act! I will fight to preserve VAWA’s funding and protections in this new Congress, and I am glad to know that local institutions like the East LA Women’s Center are standing with me in that fight. Barbara and I were joined by Gio Holguin, a MSW Intern at the Wellness Center (second from right), and by East LA Women’s Center Director of Sexual Assault Training and Outreach Sonia Rivera (right).

The Department of Homeland Security has released memos implementing the Administration's executive orders on immigration. These orders will have serious negative consequences for our country, ripping apart families and crippling our economy. As we work to reform our broken immigration system, we should be focusing on deporting those who are a threat to our country, not on those who are contributing members of our communities. I will keep fighting against the president's anti-immigrant actions. At the same time, I will continue advocating for comprehensive immigration reform that keeps our country safe while keeping families together, and creating a pathway to legalization and eventual citizenship.

The DHS memos on immigration reported by the Washington Post are troubling. I urge the administration to carefully consider the likely devastating effect of such orders on families, our communities, and our economy. I will continue to fight for comprehensive immigration reform, and to stop this elevated attack on our country’s most vulnerable.

Today marks 75 years since the signing of Executive Order 9066, which led to the shameful internment of more than 120,000 Americans of Japanese descent. As we reflect and remember those dark days in American history today, let us reaffirm our commitment to the timeless and uniquely American creed of liberty, justice, and equal treatment for all, regardless of who we are or where we come from.

Great turnout for today's #ACA town hall I co-hosted with Rep. Judy Chu! We held a detailed discussion with health experts and constituents about the vital health coverage that the ACA provides to Americans each and every day. As your Congresswoman, I'll keep fighting every day to preserve and strengthen the ACA for the 40th District's families. #ProtectOurCare
