Statement “Once again, our nation’s legal system has done its job in recognizing that while the Trump Administration may have changed some of its language around the controversial Muslim travel ban - their intent remained the same. And that intent is a violation of our U.S. Constitution and our country’s values. This new Executive Order is sadly more of the same: Unconstitutional state-sanctioned Islamophobia and discrimination that betrays our values and contributes nothing to security.

Statement “The budget blueprint the Trump administration released today is an attack on our families, our communities, our economy and our country. Simply put - American families, and our economy as a whole, would be worse off if Congress adopted this budget, which prioritizes building walls over building schools, expensive new weapon systems over investing in our nation’s children, and corporate interests over common sense.

Statement “On behalf of more than one million MomsRising members across the country, we applaud U.S. Sen. Patty Murray and U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro for re-introducing the Healthy Families Act today, which would boost working families, businesses, and the economy.

News release WASHINGTON, D.C. – A powerful coalition today released a paper that offers lawmakers a blueprint for using tax reform to improve the standard of living for children in the United States. At a time when nearly half the nation’s children – and more than three in five children of color – live in poor or low-income households, the paper is both a stirring call to action and a roadmap to help Congress use tax reform to address this problem, which stifles America’s growth and prosperity.

Statement “Yesterday’s Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report confirms what we have known all along: The Trump-led Republican health care plan to repeal much of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and restructure Medicaid would strip away health care coverage for millions of people -- 24 million by 2026. The only winners would be the wealthy, as well as the insurance and drug companies that benefit from the bill’s enormous tax cuts.

Statement “Women comprise more than half our population and 82% of women become moms. Together, we’re an inspiring, world-changing, POWERFUL force. We are Black mothers, Latino, White, Asian, Muslim, older and younger moms, grandmoms, and mothers of all immigration statuses. We are moms who are differently abled, trans and gender non-conforming, and sometimes we are all those moms in one.

Statement “The House Republican plan to obliterate the Affordable Care Act and replace it with a plan that would make health insurance less affordable, less accessible, and less comprehensive is a dangerous step in the wrong direction. This bill would create a health care crisis by throwing millions of people off of their insurance. If it is enacted, fewer people would be covered and those who do have insurance would have weaker protections and face significantly higher costs. It is now clear why House Republicans tried to hide this bill for so long. Congress must reject it immediately.
