The conditions at Rikers Island are a humanitarian crisis. We, along with @RepJerryNadler, @RepBowman and @NydiaVelazquez, strongly believe that Rikers should be immediately decarcerated and shut down. Read our letter to @GovKathyHochul and @NYCMayor ⬇️

68 members sent @SpeakerPelosi a letter last night supporting $30B for the Civilian Climate Corps. This will ensure the program is equitable and established at the scale we need to respond to the climate crisis while creating good-paying jobs with a pathway to union membership.

Afghan United Nations employees that remain in Afghanistan still face threats from the Taliban. That’s why we urged @POTUS to ensure that these at-risk Afghans are able to safely leave the country.

As Haitians continue to deal with the aftermath of last month’s earthquake, we must halt — NOT speed up — deportations. Proud to have signed on to this letter.
"We know that there are 55 Democrats who sent a letter to the Biden Administration...asking that they halt all deportations indefinitely of Haitians who are at the southern border," @AveriHarper reports. "We know that that did not happen." abcn.ws/3CrljRN

The parliamentarian’s ruling is only a recommendation, and in this case, one that goes against what the majority of Americans want. Immigrant communities have waited more than two decades for a path to citizenship, and we have a once-in-a-lifetime chance this month to deliver.
The Senate parliamentarian just recommended that a path to citizenship for Dreamers, TPS holders, and Essential Workers should not be included in the budget reconciliation bill. We are disappointed to hear the news, but we know that this fight is far from over. 🧵👇🏾

As of now, the repeal of fossil fuel subsidies is missing from the Build Back Better Act. The fossil fuel industry is destroying our planet. It’s time we stop giving them tax breaks for it, and instead shift the country to a clean energy economy that meets the climate crisis.

Fossil fuel companies want you to believe these subsidies help create jobs. In reality, they simply increase profit. There's no reason why taxpayers should continue lining the pockets of fossil fuel companies that get richer at the expense of our futures. sei.org/publications/effect-…

It is unconscionable that we continue to invest in fossil fuel infrastructure when we know it endangers people. Any Member who continues to aid fossil fuel lobbyists is disconnected from people on the ground. For once, we have to choose science over lobbyist money.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez retweeted
For years, the fossil fuel industry has attempted to mislead the public & prevent climate action. It’s time for these companies to answer for the harm they have caused. The letters sent today by @RepMaloney & I are an important step towards accountability. nytimes.com/2021/09/16/clima…

We’re introducing a bill to extend all federal pandemic unemployment insurance through Feb. 1. Benefits would be retroactive to Sep. 6. We can’t let pandemic unemployment assistance lapse when we’re still recovering from the cost effects of the pandemic. bnnbloomberg.ca/ocasio-corte…
