The IL House & Senate just passed an assault weapons ban & it’s headed to @GovPritzker’s desk! I strongly support this common sense reform, which will help protect our families & kids from the epidemic of gun violence. Military-style weapons have no place in our neighborhoods.

Today @RepPressley, @SenatorLeahy, @SenBooker, & I are calling on AG Barr to suspend all federal executions so the incoming Biden-Harris Admin. can evaluate—and hopefully end—the use of the federal death penalty. It is discriminatory, immoral & ineffective. Read our letter here: https://t.co/6XEujgBOUB

“The fact that Republicans are proposing five years of liability immunity for corporations while promising a few months of assistance for workers tells the whole story about priorities and values.” —@SenatorDurbin discusses Republicans’ totally inadequate COVID relief bill. https://t.co/OTC9rOKhWV

This historic drug seizure at a legal port of entry proves wrong nearly every single thing President Trump has said on border security. His big beautiful wall is not an effective way to stop the lethal drugs that are killing our children. Technology and customs officers are. https://t.co/2cJqUayF0U

The White House and Senate Republicans rigged the investigation of sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh so the FBI couldn’t follow the facts where they led. This does a disservice to Dr. Ford, Deborah Ramirez, all sexual assault survivors, and the American people.

Reports indicate that Kavanaugh may have misled Congress in 2006 about his involvement with policies like torture during the Bush era. He never responded to @SenatorDurbin’s letter asking for clarification. All Senators should want to get to the bottom of this #ReleaseTheRecords
