So proud that the House PASSED my Access to Counsel Act and the NO BAN Act yesterday! This is a critical first step towards restoring dignity, humanity, and civil rights to our immigration system after four cruel years of Trump's xenophobic, discriminatory, and harmful policies.

D.C. residents pay more federal taxes than 21 states, have a larger budget than 12 states & have a population larger than two states. The House will pass the Washington, D.C. Admission Act so residents will be closer to gaining the rights that they are fighting for and deserve.

Today, the House is taking action to ensure that no president or administration can ever again abuse its authority by waging discrimination on the basis of religion. The #NoBanAct restores the separation of powers by limiting executive action to issue future religious bans.

For over 200 yrs the people of DC – who pay taxes, fight in our wars & power our economy – have been denied their right to fully participate in our democracy. It is well past time to grant them the rights they have been fighting for & deserve! #DCStatehood fb.watch/50e67aAnnj/

George Floyd should be alive today. His family’s calls for justice for his murder were heard around the world. He did not die in vain. We must make sure other families don't suffer the same racism, violence & pain, and we must enact the George Floyd #JusticeInPolicing Act.
.@SpeakerPelosi speaking at presser with CBC: Thank you George Floyd for sacrificing your life for justice...Because of you and because of thousands, millions of people around the world who came out for justice, your name will always be synonymous for justice.

In passing H Res 130, Democrats and Republicans condemn China's continued violation of rights of Hong Kongers. Congress stands with freedom-loving peoples of the world and continues to fight to ensure that the voices that the Chinese government are trying to silence are heard.
