I am proud to stand with @AOC and @repblumenauer today to announce our resolution declaring a climate emergency.

If Trump insists on denying the reality of climate change, Congress must act to mobilize America and defeat this existential threat. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/jul/08/climate-crisis-sanders-ocasio-cortez-emergency

I stand in solidarity with the courageous Amazon workers engaging in a work stoppage against unconscionable working conditions in their warehouses. It is not too much to ask that a company owned by the wealthiest person in the world treat its workers with dignity and respect. https://twitter.com/UFCW/status/1150556843204366338

This is how we defeat Donald Trump's disgraceful bigotry and xenophobia. When billionaires use racism to divide us, we build solidarity among working people—immigrants and non-immigrants, gay and straight, men and women, black and brown and white. https://twitter.com/Taniel/status/1150637929477345280

THIS is what racism looks like. WE are what democracy looks like. And we’re not going anywhere. Except back to DC to fight for the families you marginalize and vilify everyday.

The American people are sick and tired of a president who is a liar, a fraud, a narcissist and a bully, @realDonaldTrump. They want leadership which unites us, not divides us. https://twitter.com/CNN/status/1150446142339080192

We must oppose Mr. Trump's nightmarish mass-deportation plans. We must stop family separation, reunite families that have been separated, and eliminate private detention facilities. Know your rights. Conozca sus derechos. https://twitter.com/NILC/status/1149755946081538049

The time is long overdue for comprehensive and humane reform of our immigration system. These members of Congress went to the Southern border to go inside detention facilities operated by the Trump administration. What they saw horrified them.

Appalachians deal with dirty air and water because of the coal industry's greed. They are standing up and fighting back. @NRDems and I are committed to working with these communities to build just and healthy local economies as we tackle the climate crisis.

Throughout our history, the Postal Service and its unions have been vital institutions providing a pathway into the middle class for working families, particularly communities of color. I stand with @mrdannyglover: we will not allow @USPS to be privatized. https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2019/07/11/danny-glover-postal-service-banking-reform-column/1692850001/

Alex Acosta should never have been nominated as Labor Secretary. Now is the time to put an end to our two-tiered criminal justice system. We need a Labor Secretary who puts workers first, not billionaires—and certainly not billionaire sexual predators of underage girls. https://twitter.com/AP/status/1149679007950155776

Donald Trump doesn’t give a damn about the working people of America. His singular aim is to help his billionaire friends make as much money as possible. We need to take on the pharmaceutical industry whose greed is killing Americans and lower the price of medicine in half. https://twitter.com/NPR/status/1149513979045150721

This is what strong oversight is about. The House is reclaiming its authority over war and blocking U.S. tax dollars from going to Saudi bombings in Yemen. Today's vote should make Donald Trump take a hard look at the despotic regime he loves so much. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/11/us/politics/house-democrats-saudi-arabia.html

The only way to prevent the starvation of millions of Yemenis is to end the war. The US cannot be an effective broker for peace if it continues to arm and militarily support on side of the conflict. This is how we reassert Congress’ role in matters of war & peace. 3/

I applaud the House of Representatives for voting to end all U.S. participation in the disastrous Saudi-led war in Yemen. Congress has the power to end this brutal, unconstitutional military intervention. I will do everything in my power in the Senate to see that it becomes law.

Congratulations to the University of Texas for expanding access to tuition-free college! This is a step in the right direction.

Our plan: tax Wall Street, raise $2.4 trillion, cancel student debt, and eliminate tuition at every public college and university for all students. https://twitter.com/Forbes/status/1149374043390382080

You can call me a lot of things but you cannot call me inconsistent. Our country must join every other major nation of the world and guarantee health care as a human right. I hope we are not going to keep debating this for another 50 years. #MedicareforAll

The #ClimateCrisis is an existential threat to our planet. I've joined @repblumenauer, @AOC, and @SenSanders in supporting a resolution to declare a national climate emergency. We must #ActOnClimate now.

I agree with Senator Cruz. Congress already blocked weapons sales to the authoritarian regime of Saudi Arabia.

Mr. President: follow the damn law. https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/10/politics/senate-frustration-trump-administration-arms-sale-emergency/index.html

These incredible high schoolers are working to stop the unconstitutional U.S.-Saudi war in Yemen. They know Congress has the power of the purse. A new effort by @RepRoKhanna, @RepAdamSchiff, @RepAdamSmith and @RepJayapal will defund Trump's participation in this brutal conflict.
