The Supreme Court DID NOT rule on or even take up the case on the legality of the CDC eviction moratorium. Every minute wasted means another family could be forced onto the streets. Biden, #ExtendTheMoratorium now!
5h
It’s late, but I won’t rest while we face an #EvictionEmergency! I just sent a letter to @SpeakerPelosi standing with her in our demand that Biden immediately direct the CDC to extend the eviction moratorium. This isn’t just a moral imperative, it’s a public health imperative!
20h
I don't buy that the CDC can't extend the eviction moratorium - something it has already done in the past! Who is going to stop them? Who is going to penalize them? There is no official ruling saying that they cannot extend this moratorium. C'mon CDC - have a heart! Just do it!
I’m NOT stopping! I’m going to fight until my last breath in order to protect these renters and these small landlords. Extend the #EvictionMoratorium!
This is an EMERGENCY❗ The #EvictionMoratorium ENDS TOMORROW❗ Chairwoman @RepMaxineWaters testifies before @RulesDemocrats on her bill #HR4791, which would keep hundreds of thousands of ppl off the streets by extending the eviction moratorium until the end of Dec.

I am leading the effort to protect renters. The eviction moratorium ends in TWO DAYS! I'm pulling out all the stops right now in Congress to STOP people from being evicted from their homes! The House MUST pass my bill to extend the eviction moratorium. I am in it to win it!
My district includes Los Angeles International Airport, Space X, Loyola University, & Maxine Waters Employment Prep Center. I’m fighting for children, veterans, seniors, hardworking people & resisting police abuse. I’m legislating to end homelessness in this country. Thank you! twitter.com/allenja2929090…
It is well known by people who follow my career that I exposed LAPD Chief Daryl Gates on his police force’s use of the chokehold. I’m not new to this, I’m true to this! I’m proud of the reputation I have for fighting for my district! twitter.com/blazerbay250/s…
New Attorney General. Biden Administration. Time for Action! Today, I sent a letter requesting the Biden Administration investigate the Executioners Gang in the L.A. Sheriff’s Department. A sheriff gangsta can't stop a street gangsta! The time to act is now.
Today is #NelsonMandelaDay! Had he lived, he would be 103 yrs old. As a legislator in California, I was able to have a bill signed that divested Calif. pension funds from corporations doing business in South Africa. We got Mandela released from prison & ended apartheid!
Today, I'm in San Diego with a Congressional delegation led by @SpeakerPelosi for the christening of the U.S. Naval Ship John Lewis. There will be many memorials and honors that will be given to him because of his tremendous contributions to the world! What a man, what a life.
Enough talk about homelessness and a lack of affordable housing! Now is the time to do something about it. Housing IS Infrastructure and there should be no infrastructure bill without it. Are you with me? #HousingIsInfrastructure
The governor of Texas should think twice about wanting to arrest legally elected officials chosen by the people to represent them in the Texas legislature. This goes beyond undermining our democracy. This is tantamount to the destruction of our democratic processes!
Democrats are fighting back! I am standing with the Texas Democrats who came to Washington, DC in order to stop Republicans from passing voter suppression laws! As democracy hangs in the balance, they are showing TRUE leadership. I am with them! We will fight back!
GREAT News! A new #ChildTaxCredit program helping to end child poverty. Starting July 15: $250-$300 per child (depending on age) per month! The greatest public policy ever developed on behalf of our children in this country! Have questions? Go to: childtaxcredit.gov!
My statement on the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse of Haiti:
Further, the Dec. of Ind. says we hold these truths to be "self-evident"... yet: - 17 states have enacted voter suppression laws - Supreme Court gutted Sec. 5 of the Voting Rights Act - George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Michael Brown, Sandra Bland, Tamir Rice Need I say more? #July4
July 4th... & so, the Declaration of Independence says all men are created equal. Equal to what? What men? Only white men? Isn't it something that they wrote this in 1776 when African Americans were enslaved? They weren't thinking about us then, but we're thinking about us now!
I was in Tulsa commemorating 100 years since the Tulsa race massacre. If there is any misunderstanding about why reparations are needed, you can't have a better example than the massacre that took lives & burned down Black businesses. Don't you think reparations are fair enough?
Republicans are brazenly sweeping the January 6 insurrection under the rug and have no shame in attacking our right to vote! We need to take action & do it NOW. Investigate Trump & his campaign for January 6, end the filibuster, & save our democracy. History is on OUR side!

Senate Republicans who claim to be such patriots just blocked debate on the #ForThePeopleAct, a bill that would help protect our right to vote. What the hell?!? Republicans across the U.S. are doing all they can to stay in power & it's clear: if they can't win, they WILL cheat!
We need to investigate who funded the January 6 rally, who helped pay to bus people into Washington, D.C., the role of shell companies, and so much more. If Republicans have nothing to hide, then let’s investigate and follow the money through a January 6 Commission now!
Take a look at all of the people listed on the National Park Service permit for the January 6 rally that led to the attack on the Capitol. It should be concerning that FEC reports show the Trump Campaign, at some point, paid over $2.7 MILLION to people who helped organize Jan. 6!
Logged on to Twitter only to see that my haters have me trending again! Does the truth make you that mad? I’ll say it again: Trump and his campaign must be investigated for the January 6th insurrection. Follow the money!
On Father's Day, I salute fathers everywhere! And for those fathers who have a need to reconnect, I urge you and support you to do so. Fathers need to know their specialness, and today children can tell them in so many different ways. Happy #FathersDay!
The best way to celebrate #Juneteenth is to get focused, get educated, and realize we are in a fight to protect our right to vote. 14 states are already trying to advance voter suppression laws, and that number will only grow. Let’s celebrate, but let's act. End the filibuster!
I announced the signing of the #Juneteenth bill with @SpeakerPelosi and other members of @TheBlackCaucus! Happy Juneteenth!
#Juneteenth becomes a national holiday today!
We're bringing home the money! Today, @VP, @SecYellen, @MarkWarner, @OppFinance, & I announced the release of $1.25 BILLION in funding for minority banks & community-based lenders. This will strengthen our communities & support small & minority-owned businesses. Feeling great!
Happy #PRIDE! This month (& always) we acknowledge & uplift the experience of LGBTQ+ individuals & say to every member of the community: you are loved & supported. The House passed the #EqualityAct. It’s time for the Senate to do the same. Words are nice, action is better!
Last weekend, @sharonstone & I helped break ground on The AIDS Monument 40 years after the CDC confirmed the first AIDS case in the U.S. Monuments like this remind us of our history, but it is our responsibility to honor that history by working to end HIV/AIDS once & for all.
I have spent the month of May joining with others to celebrate the AAPI community and confront the injustices AAPI people are facing. As hatred against so many groups escalates, the people of this country must stand up against hate in all of its forms.
Spent the day in Tulsa on a panel to discuss moving forward with reparations to compensate for the massacre that took place against the Black people of Greenwood. It is time for justice for the families and the descendants. As the Chairwoman of @FSCDems, I am going to do my part.
Wars are costly in dollars and cents, but more costly in the loss of human lives. Today we honor and give thanks to those who made the ultimate sacrifice, but say no thanks to more wars. As we think future, let us think peace.
Today marks 1 year since George Floyd was murdered. We must always remember the 9+ minutes that Chauvin kneeled on his neck & we must be committed to holding police accountable. George Floyd & others who have met similar fates must not have died in vain. The struggle continues.
To work for HeadStart was a defining moment in my life! It is one of the best government programs that truly gives families the opportunity to prepare their children for the educational experience. Happy Birthday to HeadStart! #HappyBDayHeadStart
Fox News told a lie about my security & travel that has led to even more death threats against me. I responded with the truth. It is no coincidence that Fox News doesn’t have the decency to tell its audience that the story is a lie. Fox is loud about everything but the truth!
Fox News - you can't prove the lies that you have told about me. In the final analysis, you will be proven to have been exactly what you are: irresponsible, dangerous liars.
The latest Fox "News" campaign against me falsely claiming that I requested police, secret service, & air marshals on an April 17 flight is an absolute lie. I have never requested law enforcement protection on my flights. Deceitful, lying Fox "News" must be stopped.
My dear @RepBeatty, praying for you to be healthy and strong during this time of pain and sorrow. Love, Maxine and Sidney
.@StevieWonder is a musical genius and one of the world’s greatest entertainers. Singer, songwriter, producer, and entrepreneur at @RadioFreeKJLH 102.3 FM. Kindness, joy, love, and happiness! Happy birthday, happy birthday Stevie!!
The celebration of Mother's Day is a tradition in which we honor the gift of life & the love, protection, & guidance we receive from our mothers. In the last year, however, we have lost many incredible mothers due to the pandemic. Today, let us also honor & remember them.
I was so honored to have been asked by Ahmaud Arbery's mother to participate in today's birthday celebration for him. His loss inspires me to fight even harder to rid this world of hatred and racism. #IRunWithMaud
John Lewis may have passed, but his legacy lives on! I join with many others on this day of action. As voting rights across the country are attacked, we must act to protect the civil rights of millions of Americans. #EndTheFilibuster, pass legislation, & make good trouble!
We made McConnell the Senate MINORITY leader, but he's trying to hold on to power with the filibuster - a tool gifted to him by the Jim Crow Era. We have got to be strategic if we want real & meaningful change! It's time to #EndTheFilibuster & protect voting rights! Be bold!
If we take a knee, they’re mad. If we speak up like I do, they’re mad. If we protest like Martin Luther King Jr. taught us to do, they’re mad. What is it that they expect us to do when police keep killing us?
