The president is an active and immediate threat to our democracy. He must be removed from office.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the U.S. House of Representatives reintroduced the For the People Act (H.R. 1), a comprehensive set of democracy reforms to advance voting rights, strengthen ethics laws, end partisan gerrymandering and decrease the influence of wealthy special interests in our political system. If passed, this much-needed legislation would enact some of the greatest, most comprehensive improvements our democracy has seen in decades.

WASHINGTON – Today, the U.S. Supreme Court dismissed a lawsuit over the Trump Administration’s attempts to exclude undocumented immigrants from the 2020 Census counts to be used for apportionment of seats in Congress among the States. That means that the issue may need to be litigated later, if the Trump plan remains in effect and ends up changing the apportionment.
