Android : Welcomed news. Ali Mayorkas will be first Latino to lead DHS. Has been confirmed by Senate 3 times. Helped make DACA a reality.

He has a clear mandate w/ Pres. elect Biden to enact BOLD & SWIFT executive actions that bring accountability to ICE & CBP & reunite our loved ones. twitter.com/michaelcrowley…

Twitter Web App : But what I do commit to is actively, passionately, and tenaciously engaging in a national discussion about the actions we take now to protect the future of our world. And what this crisis demands is that each and every one of us does that too wherever you might live.

Twitter Web App : This isn’t a wholesale endorsement of every decision John Kerry will make over the next 4 years, and that’s true of anyone else who gets appointed over the next months - even if it’s a Bernie or a Haaland!

Twitter Web App : A principle we use in Sunrise is "no permanent friends, no permanent enemies." When we see policies that reflect our values, we’ll celebrate those. When we see policies that conflict with what the science mandates or what our communities need, we’ll be vocal about that too.

Twitter Web App : Some more reflections... I've been transparent in the past and throughout the taskforce meetings that Sec. Kerry and I don't agree on everything. In his new position, we won't always agree moving forward either. We’ve disagreed about policy positions & even theory of change.

Twitter Web App : I served w/ Sec Kerry this summer on the Biden-Sanders taskforce & one thing is clear: he really does care about stopping climate change. That's something we can work with.

An encouraging move from the Biden team - now I'm keeping my eyes peeled for a domestic equivalent! twitter.com/JohnKerry/stat…

Android : Vote tripling is when you amplify the power of your vote by reminding 3 friends to get out & cast their ballots. Anyone can do it!

The fact that a super majority of these voters in Philly are on the tripling game is 🀯
