Dear Friend,

This week was a good week. The President finally abandoned his racist, illegal attempt to rig the census, the House passed my Federal Employee Paid Leave Act, and we passed, by an overwhelming vote of 402-12, the Never Forget the Heroes Act to make permanent and fully fund the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund.

Dear Friend, I hope you had a good week – I know I had a busy one with some key wins in Washington, DC – in Congress and at the Supreme Court. I’m thrilled to share good news on our fights to fully fund and make permanent the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund and to ensure a full, fair, and accurate 2020 Census. This week, I also gathered with my colleagues to celebrate growing bipartisan support for a Smithsonian Women’s History Museum, the House passed the SAFE Act – a bill to better secure our elections against foreign interference, and I offered my Federal Employee Paid Leave Act as an amendment to the NDAA. More on all this below.

Dear Friend, It was another busy week back home in NYC and in Washington, DC. I kicked off last weekend with many of you at the #ImpeachTrump Day of Action in Foley Square, had the chance to speak with some of you and Patient Advocate Peter Morley about healthcare in Long Island City, and then it was back to DC to introduce legislation to help nonprofits and vote for a spending package that will finally fund gun violence research. More on all this below.

Dear Friend, It was another busy week in Washington, DC and here in New York. I’m proud to report we had two big wins in the House of Representatives this week. We sent a disaster relief package to the President’s desk for his signature and we passed the American Dream and Promise Act to finally give Dreamers and Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) holders a real pathway to citizenship. More on this and other updates below.

Dear Friend, First, I would like to wish you and your families a Happy Memorial Day as we honor all those who made the ultimate sacrifice to defend this country. Second, I would like to announce that that I've been working with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and the House Committee on Oversight and Reform to host a hearing on the 2020 Census here in NYC. It will take place this Tuesday, May 28 at 2pm at LaGuardia Community College's The Little Theater. If you can't join us, live stream here.
