As the proud representative for #CA40’s 2,700 federal workers, I’m deeply concerned about the unpaid workers struggling to make ends meet in this shutdown. I've voted eight times with House Democrats to #EndTheShutdown -- the Senate GOP must join us to reopen government so federal workers get paid again!

With a group of inspiring #Dreamers at a recent National Education Association/American Federation of Teachers event. America is home to 20,000 #DACA teachers, including 5,000 in California alone. We must not tear these talented U.S. patriots away from our classrooms and country. Let's #ProtectDreamers and pass the #DreamActNow!

Today's HHS report sheds horrifying new light on the Trump Administration’s massive effort to tear apart migrant families. It reveals heartlessness and carelessness on a level even beyond what we had known. Not only did this Administration take thousands more children away from their parents – it failed to keep information about the total number and current status of children separated from their parents or guardians. That’s unconscionable and inexcusable. When Republicans controlled the House, President Trump may have thought he could get away with this cruelty and incompetence. But those days are over. As top Democrat on the DHS Appropriations Subcommittee, I’m going to keep working with our new House Majority to hold the President accountable for this human tragedy. I will fight for an immigration system that keeps families together and treats all migrants with the dignity they deserve.

Wonderful to speak with American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten tonight about the current challenges in our education system, and the incredible work that teachers are doing to create opportunities for our students!

Today, I joined the House in passing an urgently needed disaster funding bill. These funds will help California recover from the wildfires that have devastated our state, and help other U.S. communities rebuild from hurricanes, typhoons, and other natural disasters. To ensure the federal government can meet the needs of disaster victims, our disaster supplemental bill reopens the government and ends the #TrumpShutdown. Again and again, the House Majority has voted to #EndTheShutdown. I urge the Senate GOP to finally join us, for our nation’s sake!
