ALERT: I urge all of our communities to read this health advice from the LA County Department of Public Health concerning the jet fuel release over our neighborhoods.  Individuals and property owners who believe they may have been affected by this jet fuel release can contact Delta Airlines at 800-441-5955.  I am in communication with Delta, the Federal Aviation Administration, and local emergency first responders to ensure a full response and thorough investigation.  I have led a letter to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) asking pressing and fundamental questions about this jet fuel dump.  I also worked with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus to send this letter to Delta’s CEO, urging Delta to take part in community meetings concerning the jet fuel dump and disclose the chemicals in the dumped fuel (including any additives). The FAA has produced a fact sheet on what it currently knows about the incident.  I encourage you to reach out to these community clinics if you are concerned about your family's exposure to jet fuel or fumes as a result of the jet fuel dump.

ALERTA: Pido que todas nuestras comunidades leen este consejo de salud del Departamento de Salud Pública del Condado de Los Ángeles con respecto la descarga de combustible de avión en nuestros vecindarios.  Personas y propietarios que creen que han sido afectados por la descarga de combustible de avión pueden comunicarse con Delta Airlines por teléfono: 800-441-5955.  Estoy en comunicación con Delta, la Administración Federal de Aviación y los servicios de emergencia locales para garantizar una respuesta completa y una investigación exhaustiva.  He liderado una carta a la Administración Federal de Aviación (FAA) haciendo preguntas urgentes y fundamentales sobre la descarga de combustible de avión.  También trabajé con el Caucus Hispano del Congreso para enviar esta carta al CEO de Delta instándole a Delta que participe en reuniones comunitarias sobre el descargo de combustible para aviones y revele los productos químicos en el combustible descargado (incluyendo los aditivos).  La FAA ha producido una hoja informativa sobre lo que actualmente sabe sobre el incidente.  Les recomiendo que se comuniquen con estas clínicas comunitarias si están preocupados porque su familia fue expuesta al combustible o a los vapores del avión como resultado de la descarga de combustible.

I was in South LA to brief the Pueblo Del Río Resident Advisory Council on key federal issues, including the vital importance of participating in the 2020 Census, the latest news on the future of DACA, and the Trump Administration's rulemaking on public charge and mixed-status families. I also presented Certificates of Special Congressional Recognition to two advisory council members, in appreciation of their service to the community. #SouthLA #2020Census #Census #DACA #PublicCharge #MixedStatusFamilies

78 years ago today, Executive Order 9066 authorized the U.S. to incarcerate Japanese Americans. More than 120,000 men, women, and children had their lives torn apart by this cruel order. As we remember them today, let us renew our total opposition to fearmongering and xenophobia.

Met this morning in Bellflower with members of Caring Connections, who help promote healthy and successful futures for children and families in the Bellflower Unified School District. I greatly appreciated hearing their views. I also reminded them about the upcoming #2020Census, and the importance of ensuring the #Census counts every person who lives in their home. #CaringConnections #Bellflower #CityOfBellflower #BellflowerUSD #BellflowerUnified
