Yesterday, I marched in Battery Park to protest the Trump Administration’s unconstitutional immigration executive order and tonight I was on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court with Democrats from across the country to fight this appalling action. I will not be silent when American values are under assault, which is exactly what is happening right now. Such hateful acts not only undermine our values and democracy but also threaten American security at home and abroad.

This Saturday I proudly participated in the Women’s March on New York City, joining more than two million women and men around the world in support of equal rights and a better future for our children. We marched to send a message to President Trump and the Republican Congress that we will not back down one inch when it comes to protecting a woman’s right to choose, LGBTQ equality, the Affordable Care Act, immigrant rights and more. It was an inspiring and energizing experience and one that I will carry with me as I fight in Congress to defend our progressive values.

Today I took to the House floor to talk to my colleagues and the American people about the economic consequences of repealing the Affordable Care Act. Not only is repeal bad for Americans' health, but it's bad for the economy, as well.

I am thrilled that we were able to ring in 2017 with a ride on the brand new Second Avenue Subway! This is a momentous achievement for our city and our country. It is the first new subway line in New York City in more than 60 years and will have a lasting impact for generations to come.

Dear Friend,

With the work the 114th Congress completed, I wanted to take the time to highlight some recent news in Congress and back home in New York.

Dear Friend, I just spoke on the floor of the House to express my disappointment that the bill to keep the government funded through April falls far short of providing the funds needed to reimburse our city for the costs we’ve incurred to keep the President-elect and his family safe.

Dear Friend, Congress is in the midst of completing its work for the year, but before we adjourn I believe we must provide New York City with federal funds to cover the costs for securing Trump Tower. Since election day, NYPD has been working tirelessly and professionally to comply with Secret Service requirements for protecting the next President of the United States. However, New York City taxpayers should not be the ones footing this bill. That’s why, last night I led a New York delegation letter to Congressional leadership urging inclusion of a $35 million reimbursement to New York City for the costs our city has incurred providing security for President-elect Trump between Election Day and Inauguration Day.

Dear Friend,

Before we break for Thanksgiving, I wanted to make sure that you heard the wonderful news: a deal has been reached to acquire the last remaining parcel for Bushwick Inlet Park!  Park land is critical throughout New York City, and I was pleased to join in the effort to ensure that this park became a reality.

Dear Friend,

As you make your plans to get around New York City over the next couple of days, I wanted to make sure you were aware of the following road closures effective today through Wednesday, November 9 that are related to Election Day events.

New York City Emergency Management says to expect traffic delays and suggests using public transportation if possible.
