Statement “The Trump Administration is doubling down on its disgraceful family separation policy at the border, ignoring federal court rulings and the millions of Americans calling for an end to family separation and imprisonment.

Statement “Our country is more divided, our highest court is less legitimate, and our elected officials are less credible after the United States Senate voted today to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to a lifetime appointment on the U.S. Supreme Court. This was a shameful, unforgivable vote – and every Senator who supported Kavanaugh will be held accountable, not just for today’s vote but also for the hardship and pain it brings to millions of women, moms, and families in the months, years, and even decades ahead.
