Bring American Latino History and Contributions to the Smithsonian: Cosponsor the National Museum of the American Latino Act

            As representatives of the United States government, we have a solemn duty to protect the rights and civil liberties of our citizens.
The Terrorist Screening Database (TDSB, or “terrorist watchlist”) is shared with over 60 foreign governments, with no accountability or oversight over the way those governments use the information. An FBI official has acknowledged in sworn testimony that
it has never stopped disseminating watchlist information to a foreign government as a result of that government’s human rights abuses.

Urge the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to Address the Emerging Recycling Crisis Created by China’s 2018 “National Sword” Policy

We now know that on numerous occasions foreign actors sought to assist the Trump Campaign during the 2016 presidential election.  For example, the Trump family has acknowledged that Russia offered secret “dirt” on Donald Trump’s opponent in the 2016 presidential
election, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  Mr. Trump, Jr. was told Russia was offering him this information as part of its support for his father’s candidacy.  Instead of reacting with concern or alarm that a foreign power was trying to meddle in
a domestic U.S. election in violation of federal law, Mr. Trump, Jr. said he would “love” to get his hands on this information; he and his colleagues – then-Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort and Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner – later met with the
Russian representatives to do so.

Block the Administration’s Rollback of the Equal Access Rule: Become a Cosponsor of H.R. 3018, the Ensuring Equal Access to Shelter Act

Please join us as a cosponsor of H.R. 2420, the National Museum of the American Latino Act. Nearly 58 million Latinos, or 18.1 percent of the population, reside in the United States. By 2060, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates this population will reach
119 million, or nearly 30 percent of the population. Latinos also account for 25 percent of the nation’s 54 million K-12 students in 2016, up from 16 percent in 2000. This young, vibrant, and growing community not only represents the future, but they also
make up the largest and fastest growing racial or ethnic group in the country. Yet, Latinos still face systemic under-representation in nearly every facet of American life. The growing disparity is most evident in our arts and cultural institutions.
