Twitter Web App : What happened to Judge Salas is a tragedy no one should ever have to go through. Senator Bob Menendez & I are working on legislation that would protect all federal judges and their families to help prevent this from happening again. cnn.com/2020/08/03/us/…

Twitter Web App : One year ago, the Latino community endured one of our darkest days, when El Paso was attacked by a hateful white supremacist.

But we will stand stronger together & fight even harder for commonsense gun violence prevention reforms.

Hate has no home here. #RememberElPaso twitter.com/HispanicCaucus…

Twitter Web App : We need to...
💼 Extend unemployment benefits
🏠 Increase housing protections & food assistance
😷 Address racial disparities
💰 Pass state & local aid
🏥 Support our hospitals and nursing homes
🧪 Ramp up testing and vaccine production
...and much more.

Twitter Web App : Instead, the GOP's plan doubles the tax break for business lunches from 50 to 100%.

Not a PENNY more for families going hungry...but corporate executives lucky enough to still have jobs during this crisis get free, three-martini lunches? 🍸

That’s absurd.

Twitter Web App : Stopped by CUMAC today, a Paterson non-profit that’s been struggling to meet growing demand as unemployment rises & communities are strained for resources.

But the GOP is offering NOTHING more for other vital food assistance programs that benefit children & food banks.

Twitter Web App : That's why I’m working with Sen. Cory Booker on legislation to address the availability of federal judges’ personally identifiable information on the internet, and to enhance security measures and training on potential threats to federal judges and their families.

Twitter Media Studio : What happened to Judge Salas and her family is a tragedy of unspeakable proportions.

No judge should ever feel unsafe or threatened because they have answered the call of public service to uphold justice.

Twitter Web App : Nearly 150,000 NJ small businesses have relied on #PPP loans under $150,000 to help survive #COVID19. My bill would automatically forgive these loans so that our neighborhood businesses can focus their time & resources on what matters most: staying open & serving our communities.

Twitter Web App : ✅ When the school year begins this fall, schools will need serious resources—regardless of whether theyre providing remote or in-person instruction.

❌ The GOP’s #HEALSAct fails to provide them & furthers Trump’s brazen efforts to force schools to reopen—despite the risks.

Twitter Web App : ✅ If you’re black or brown, you’re more likely to get sick or die from #COVID19. My COVID-19 Health Disparities Action Act would create a plan of action to address racial disparities.

❌ The GOP’s #HEALSAct doesn’t even acknowledge that.

Twitter Web App : COVID-19 has made completing Hajj difficult this year. Whether you’re seeing loved ones virtually or through social distancing, I'm wishing a happy and meaningful #EidAlAdha to Muslims in New Jersey and around the world observing this special holiday.

#EidMubarak! twitter.com/GovMurphy/stat…

Twitter Web App : NEW BILL: Diversity & workplace inclusion is much more than a vision statement—especially when it comes to federal agencies. Our Federal Jobs Act strives to make a government by the people and for the people LOOK more like the people it represents.

Twitter Web App : ✅ Millions of American’s can’t afford to pay their rent during the #COVID19 pandemic. I have bills to improve housing counseling, provide emergency rental assistance, and ban evictions as we fight coronavirus.

❌ The GOP’s #HEALSAct ignores it.

Twitter Web App : Medicare and Medicaid turn 55 today, but with Trump’s attempts to gut them…they might not make it to 56.

This would jeopardize millions of Americans’ health and well-being. The cost of losing #Medicare and #Medicaid is too great—it’s up to us to protect them. #SaveOurCare
