Statement “When Federal District Judge Andrew Hanen ruled against DACA in Texas v. United States last night, he once again intensified the chaos and hardship facing some 600,000 undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States as children, jeopardizing their ability to live and work in the only place most have ever called home. While we are grateful that the DACA program remains in place for now, last night’s ruling makes it even more urgent that Congress finally do its job by passing permanent protections for Dreamers.

Statement “Policy matters. When Republicans in Congress blocked measures that would have continued the expanded Child Tax Credit, they stopped people from being able to afford child care and other essentials that make it possible for them to work and care for their families. This had dramatically harmful repercussions, including a punishing, painful spike in child poverty – and poverty overall – that the country is experiencing, which hurts our nation’s businesses and its economy.

Statement “From Dionne Warwick to Meryl Streep to Oprah to Madonna, mature women are busting stereotypes and showing the world what they can do. So, too, are America’s grandmothers, who step up for their families every single day. That’s why, this Grandparents Day, MomsRising salutes the millions of grandmothers who are helping their families with child care, mortgage and student loan payments, and other necessities in a country that has failed to create the kind of care infrastructure we all need.

Statement “Mifepristone is available in the United States today, but that will change if last month’s appalling ruling by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals is allowed to stand. That’s why America’s moms and families applaud the Biden/Harris administration for appealing that ruling, which restricts access to an FDA-approved medication that has been proven safer than penicillin, Tylenol, and Viagra, and is the only option many of us have left for abortion. Mifepristone has been used safely in this country for more than 20 years. Whether it will remain available will now be up to the U.S.

Statement “Florida moms support public education. We want our tax dollars to support strong public schools that welcome all students, teach honest history, recognize the strength in our diversity, and provide essential resources to the teachers who work so hard to help our children learn and grow.

Statement “Each day, across all occupations and education levels, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (NHPI) women are robbed of hard-earned income by one of the most damaging, punitive wage gaps in the country. NHPI women working full-time, year-round are paid just 65 cents for each dollar paid to white men. When part-time workers are included, that figure falls to just 61 cents on a white man’s dollar.

Statement “Millions of moms, grandmothers, and families will be better off because Medicare is going to negotiate for lower prices for ten widely used heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and other medications. This is a triumph for the Biden/Harris administration, which fought hard for this, and it will provide a real boost for America’s families.

Statement “The mass shooting in Jacksonville on Saturday is heartbreaking and even more devastating because the racism and easy access to weapons of war that drove it are tragically taking lives, causing grave harm to communities, and escalating in our country.

Statement “While mifepristone remains available in the United States, it is disgraceful that another conservative court today ruled to limit access to a medication that has been used safely in this country for more than 20 years. The ruling today won’t change access right now; the case now goes to the U.S. Supreme Court. But no court should restrict access to an FDA-approved medication that has been proven safer than penicillin, Tylenol, and Viagra; and is the only option many of us have left for abortion.
