Pres. Trump can’t have it both ways. He can’t warn Americans that Venezuela is too dangerous to visit, only to turn around and tell Venezuelans in the US they have to return. It’s time for Congress to overrule this outrageous & inconsistent policy and designate Venezuela for TPS. — PolitiTweet.org

We just received a heartless response from @USCIS Acting Director Ken Cuccinelli – the Trump Admin refuses to grant TPS to protect innocent Venezuelan civilians. Instead, the Administration will simply continue to “monitor the situation” there. — PolitiTweet.org

In March, @SenatorMenendez and I led a bipartisan group of 24 Senators urging the Trump Admin to designate Venezuela for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) so that Venezuelans in the U.S. are not forced to return to their country at this dangerous time. — PolitiTweet.org

Instead of working to lower prescription drug prices or protect Americans with pre-existing conditions, Republicans are working to take away a woman’s right to choose. We must stand up to this President and #ProtectX. — PolitiTweet.org

Why is the Republican-controlled Senate prioritizing its time this week on a tax treaty with Luxembourg? Instead, Americans want real action to lower prescription drug prices, and Democrats stand ready to address this issue. Leader McConnell needs to get his priorities straight. https://t.co/688uJkq4m6 — PolitiTweet.org

The Republican Party was once the party of Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, and Ronald Reagan, but sadly no longer. Republican reactions to the President’s racist and reprehensible recent statements prove they’re surrendering their soul to Donald Trump. — PolitiTweet.org

We must address the root causes driving migrants to our border, and fighting corruption in Northern Triangle countries like Guatemala should be a top priority. The United States should be promoting democracy and stability abroad, not working against them. https://t.co/aNiCGwFPGX — PolitiTweet.org

Insulin was discovered in 1921 & its patent sold for $1. But today, the price of insulin has skyrocketed more than 600% over the past 2 decades. America’s Insulin Scandal must come to an end.

I called on Secretary Acosta to resign earlier this week and I’m glad he heeded those calls. After details emerged around the soft treatment that he gave to Mr. Epstein, it is clear he didn’t take the charges seriously. — PolitiTweet.org
