BREAKING: Our anti-lynching bill, which would make lynching a federal crime, just unanimously passed the Senate. Lynching is a dark, despicable part of our nation's history and I'm hopeful this measure will swiftly pass the House.

@KamalaHarris
It’s outrageous that lynching still isn’t considered a federal crime. Congress tried and failed near 200 times between 1882 to 1986. About to ask the Senate to unanimously pass our anti-lynching bill. Let’s right this wrong.

Remember when we Republicans controlled the house and senate for two years? Why didn’t they approve the President’s border wall during those two years? It appears there are parts of both parties that want open borders, for different wrong reasons Makes me sick.

I’m headed to the Senate floor right now to request my colleagues unanimously pass my anti-lynching bill. It’s absurd that Congress has tried and failed to do this dozens of times for the better part of a century. Let’s get it done. Kamala Harris's photo on Senate

In the wake of unspeakable horror, the young people of Parkland rose up to demand action on gun violence and mobilized a generation of activists. Thank you for your courage and call to action. The Democratic House has heard your call. But will the Senate? https://t.co/Im53RAaI4m

The Senate just unanimously passed our bill to make lynching a federal crime. This bill acknowledges the wrongs in our history and honors the memories of those brutally killed. Making this law is the right thing to do—I hope the House will move quickly to pass.

Pleased to see the Senate unanimously pass a bill to make lynching a federal crime. Congress has tried nearly 200 times to pass similar legislation. It’s long past time we recognize this heinous, racist crime for what it is and I hope to see the House move this bill soon.

Mitch McConnell is one of the weakest leaders in Senate history. He won’t confront an out of control president. He won’t engage with Senate democrats. He instead pitches his entire caucus against the far left ideology of two or three new members of the House of Representatives!

House Dems should have started with #impeachment. Everything else is secondary at this point. And please don't tell me they shouldn't do it because the Senate won't convict. The PROCESS itself is essential to uphold the rule of law, whatever the outcome. #NationalEmergency

@eugenegu
Trump’s National Emergency isn’t about the wall. It’s about saving face with his racist base. Fact is the House of Representatives will vote to cancel it, the Senate will vote to confirm it, and the courts will overturn it. And in the long meantime not a dime will go to the wall.

I will cosponsor this resolution. If the House passes it, under the National Emergencies Act the Senate will have 15 days to vote up or down. This isn’t about building or stopping the wall; it’s about defending the Constitution. https://t.co/Q6hvx5T6CI

It's a helluva thing that Mitch McConnell, who has long seen himself as a defender of the Senate's institutional prerogatives, announce Trump is declaring a national emergency and, in effect, usurp Congress's constitutionally-mandated powers

This emergency declaration will lose in court, but in the meantime every member of congress will be put on the record, and it will be ugly on the Senate floor.

If you've watched Congress in recent years you will notice that it is the most mundane bills that often sit in the Senate for weeks for open ended debate, yet the most impactful, controversial, and costly bills are shunted through in one hour of debate with no hearings.
