Statement “The framework for immigration the White House released yesterday is not a serious proposal for sound immigration reform. Instead, it continues the shameful immigration policies this administration has tried to advance since President Trump took office. It uses DREAMers as pawns in a plan to advance a racist, anti-immigrant agenda that will cause grave and lasting harm to our families, economy, and our country.

News release Washington, DC -- On Tuesday, January 30, while President Trump delivers his first State of the Union address, leading women activists will host an alternative event in Washington, DC -- The State of Our Union -- to offer an alternative view and vision for the country, and to address the persistent gender inequality and “crisis of leadership” they say is harming America.

Statement “The Continuing Resolution (CR) that Congress passed today is a deep and painful disappointment. It once again fails to guarantee protections for DREAMers -- young people who were brought to the United States as children and must be allowed to live, learn, work and contribute to our communities and our economy. It is truly appalling that DREAMERers must now continue living in fear of being separated from their families and sent away from the only homes they’ve ever known. We need real solutions, not more empty promises from dysfunctional, xenophobic lawmakers.

Statement “Republicans in Congress once again demonstrated their skewed priorities, that they would rather shut down the government than provide protections for DREAMers -- young immigrants who came to this country as children and who contribute greatly to their communities and our country. Congressional Republicans’ unwillingness to pass a continuing resolution that would allow DREAMers to live without fear is abhorrent. Shutting down the government will cause needless confusion, pain and suffering to families all across the country.

Statement “Once again, the Trump administration is attacking the health and economic security of America’s families. The Trump administration just announced a move to offer health care providers a license to discriminate by allowing them to deny patients the care they need if the provider -- a doctor, nurse, hospital or other entity -- has a religious or moral objection to the procedure. This rule disproportionately harms women and transgender people and will allow providers to impose their privately-held religious beliefs on their patients, regardless of the patient’s health care needs.

Statement “This afternoon, the Maryland State Senate followed the House of Delegates’ lead by voting to override Governor Hogan’s veto of HB1. After years of waiting and advocating for this bill, earned sick days will finally be a reality for workers in our state. This is a huge victory for Maryland’s working families and a momentous day for Maryland.

Statement “The Maryland House of Delegates voted today to overturn Governor Larry Hogan’s ill-conceived, outrageous veto of HB1, bringing the state one step closer to enacting earned sick leave law that will benefit families, workers, and the state’s economy.

Statement “Today, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced that states will be able to apply for waivers allowing them to implement work requirements for Medicaid recipients. This misguided policy punishes the most vulnerable members of our society and has the potential to cause millions of people to lose their health coverage just when they need support the most. It will perpetuate poverty and inequality, jeopardize the health of families, disproportionately harm women, undermine our economy, and do little to help anyone find or keep a job.

Statement “With today’s vote, New Hampshire is one step closer to strengthening families and making our state’s economy more competitive. Whether it’s taking time to care for a new child, a sick family member, or even a loved one struggling with addiction, being there for families is what matters. Yet, far too many Granite Staters are still forced to make the impossible decision between earning a paycheck and taking care of a loved one or themselves.
