We are deeply concerned that the Trump Administration is considering an illegal and unconstitutional military intervention in Venezuela. It's concerning to us that the hawks in the Trump Administration – including John Bolton, Mike Pompeo, and Elliott Abrams – are threatening to embroil the United States in another ill-advised and poorly-considered war.
House Democrats stand against bigotry in all forms, including anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, and all forms of racism and xenophobia. Today's historic and comprehensive resolution made our Democratic values abundantly clear at this critical time.
We need to create an economy that works for every family – and that starts by making college affordable and accessible to all students who want to attend. Graduates beginning their lives shouldn't have to take on crushing debt. By passing the Debt-Free College Act, we can ensure that everyone, regardless of their background, race or zip code, can afford a four-year degree.
