Ensure That American Citizens Decide American Elections Free From Foreign Interference and Sabotage

I invite you to join me as a co-sponsor of H.R. 2353, the “Duty To Refuse and Report Foreign Interference in American Elections Act of 2019,” which I introduced to impose an affirmative duty to refuse any offer of election campaign assistance from
any agent or entity acting on behalf or in the interest of a foreign government and to report to the Federal Bureau of Investigation any such offer of assistance from an agent or entity acting on behalf or in the interest of a foreign government. This duty
to refuse and report shall apply to candidates and any person working for, or volunteering with, a candidate for election to federal office. The legislation also requires the Federal Election Commission to require that a candidate for election to federal office
must certify quarterly that he or she is compliance with the above requirements. Violation of the Act carries a penalty of not more than 5 years in prison and a fine of not more than $250,000.

Support Legislation to End Racial, Ethnic and Religious Profiling

After compiling and analyzing a data set detailing nearly 100 million municipal and state patrol traffic stops conducted in dozens of jurisdictions across the country, the Stanford Computational Policy Lab found evidence of bias
against black drivers both in highway patrol and in municipal police stops, as well as evidence that the bar for searching black and Latino drivers is lower than for searching white drivers. This legislation is designed to enforce the constitutional right
to equal protection of the laws by changing the policies and procedures underlying the practice of profiling. Events in the wake of President Trump’s Executive Orders on Immigration and threats of targeted ICE enforcement demonstrate that racial and religious
profiling remain dangerous and divisive issues in our communities. Airport detentions of Muslims and immigration raids targeted at the Latino community strike at the very foundation of our democracy.  Though people across our nation are protesting in response
to these actions, there is no substitute for comprehensive federal anti-profiling legislation.
