Cosponsor the HANGUP Act to Help Stop Unwanted Robocalls

In the midst of the worst global refugee crisis in history, last year Secretary Pompeo announced a record low refugee cap of 30,000 refugee admissions for Fiscal Year 2019. This announcement effectively slammed the door on thousands of refugees. It represents

REIN IN SPENDING AND INCREASE EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS AT THE VA

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

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.

thought to be safe.

it has never stopped disseminating watchlist information to a foreign government as a result of that government’s human rights abuses.

INVITE: Support the fight against Public Charge! Join Quad Caucus for a Special Order on June 11th & Press Conference on June 12th

We write to invite you to join us to oppose the Department of Homeland Security’s proposed public charge rule, which would make it difficult for many immigrants to come to the U.S. or receive green cards if they are considered likely to use basic benefits
like Medicaid and nutrition assistance.  Last year, the Trump administration published a proposed rule that would administratively alter the definition of the term “public charge” in violation of congressional intent. We ask that you join us for a Special
Order on June 11, 2019 and press conference on June 12, 2019, to shift the narrative surrounding public charge and reaffirm our shared values as a nation.
