This ultraconservative Supreme Court ruling has direct and devastating consequences for millions of Americans, including Hawaii residents. I have heard firsthand from families worried about being evicted. Congress must swiftly act to address this imminent crisis. twitter.com/CNN/status/143…
Our servicemembers are performing heroically under extremely difficult circumstances. I thank them for their courage in support of this vital mission of swiftly getting Americans and our Afghan partners and their families out safely.
My thoughts are with the families and friends of those killed in Afghanistan today, including the brave U.S. servicemembers who died defending the ongoing evacuation.
The Supreme Court is forcing the Biden Administration to reinstate a cruel, inhumane mockery of asylum law championed by Donald Trump. Remain in Mexico subjected thousands of vulnerable migrants to kidnappings, murders, and other horrifying crimes. This must stop. twitter.com/nytimes/status…
Since the Korean War, Korean Americans have been separated from their loved ones in North Korea. I introduced the Korean War Divided Families Reunification Act with @SenDanSullivan because Korean Americans should be included in reunions with their loved ones in North Korea.
Since the pandemic began, there have been more than 9,000 anti-Asian hate incidents across the United States. As we continue to confront this racism and bigotry, @DOJ_CRS has resources for communities to address these incidents. More here: twitter.com/DOJ_CRS/status…
Today, the @US_FDA fully approved the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine because it met the FDA’s rigorous safety and effectiveness standards. Vaccines are the best tool to protect you and your family from COVID-19. Find where to get vaccinated: hawaiicovid19.com/vaccine/ #HIGotVaccinated
While Afghanistan remains an ever-changing situation, we must stay focused on our main mission, which is getting Americans, our Afghan partners and their families, and other Afghans who are at risk like women leaders and journalists, out of the country.
"The continued separation of Korean families is one of the most tragic consequences of the ongoing Korean War" says @christineahn. Thank you @maziehirono for reintroducing the Korean War Divided Families Reunification Act. hirono.senate.gov/news/press-rel…

Today, I am thinking about Capitol Police and their law enforcement partners. In an already traumatic year, I continue to be grateful for their service. twitter.com/washingtonpost…
There will be time to have hearings and investigations regarding the evacuation chaos in Afghanistan. Right now, we must be focused on the urgent need to get Americans and our Afghan partners and their families to safety.
Afghan allies who fought w/U.S. troops & their families are in danger & time is quickly running out. I’m leading a bipartisan letter w/@SenJoniErnst calling for their immediate evacuation & the swift implementation of my bill to streamline the SIV process before it's too late.

We must work to support the Afghan women leaders who are in danger. Joined @SenatorMenendez, @SenatorShaheen, @SenJackReed, @JimInhofe and others to call on the Biden Administration to act now. twitter.com/SFRCdems/statu…
In the midst of this unfolding crisis, the contributions of servicemembers and their families, veterans, Gold Star families, diplomats, humanitarian workers and others who supported the Afghan people, will not be forgotten.
Afghan women and girls who will be targeted by the Taliban also urgently need our support. We should take whatever action is necessary to protect them.
A humanitarian crisis is unfolding before our eyes in Afghanistan. We are all witnessing the chaos at the Kabul airport. We must prioritize the evacuation of American citizens and our Afghan partners and their families who supported us during this 20-year war.
Hawaii families are using their first advance CTC payments to pay for food, child care, school, and other expenses. On Friday, they received a second round of payments. Let’s make these payments permanent to help children across our state. hawaiinewsnow.com/2021/08/13/how…
This pandemic has made it even more important to get health care. Two days left to #getcovered at healthcare.gov
Our economy depends on small businesses. Small businesses depend on @SBAgov. But a group of Senators is blocking Biden's SBA nominee, @dilawar, simply because he is Muslim - despite support from civil rights & faith groups. We call on them to stop putting bigotry over economy twitter.com/civilrightsorg…

Four years ago in Charlottesville, the battle for the soul of America was laid bare. Neo-Nazis, Klansmen, and white supremacists emerged from the shadows, but Americans of all different backgrounds stood their ground. We must continue to stand up to hate and bigotry — together.

Congratulations to General Laura Richardson on her promotion to four-star general and historic confirmation as the first female Commander of @Southcom – she is the right person at the right time to lead our troops in an ever-changing region. twitter.com/CraigCaplan/st…
Early this morning, Senate Democrats voted to set the stage to provide transformational support for families and communities in Hawaii and across the country. Longstanding needs, exacerbated during the pandemic, require us to act. twitter.com/SenSchumer/sta…
Now, we must turn to delivering on promises we've made to help American families through affordable childcare, a permanent expanded CTC, universal pre-K, and paid family leave.
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act makes historic investments to address longstanding infrastructure needs in communities in Hawaii and across the country.

The #IPCCReport on climate change is a grave warning. The consequences will only become more devastating if we choose inaction. The budget resolution introduced today by @SenateDems will be the biggest investment in tackling the climate crisis in U.S. history. Let’s get to work. twitter.com/SecGranholm/st…
And now, Facebook is lashing out at NYU’s Ad Observatory for studying that misinformation in Facebook ads. Outright lies continue unchecked, and the consequences will be devastating. twitter.com/verge/status/1…
Anti-vaccination groups with tens of thousands of members circulate misinformation across Facebook the same way terror groups do. twitter.com/oneunderscore_…
And misinformation, coupled with @Facebook’s ignorance of what is happening on its own platform, has caused more people to get sick and die of COVID-19.
It fueled the extremism that caused the insurrection. buzzfeednews.com/article/craigs…
Misinformation on @Facebook undermined the 2016 election. cbsnews.com/news/how-russi…
Mark Zuckerberg once said “Facebook is about helping people share information.” On his watch, @Facebook has become more about sharing misinformation--often with deadly consequences.
I join millions across our country in mourning the loss and celebrating the life and work of our friend Richard Trumka. Richard dedicated his entire life to fighting for America’s working people. Richard, it was an honor fighting alongside you. We will miss you.
Great news: America’s moving towards cleaner cars and cleaner air. What a refreshing change from the previous administration’s climate change denial. twitter.com/POTUS/status/1…
Climate change disproportionately impacts the 3.5 million U.S. citizens and nationals who live in U.S. affiliated insular areas, but they’re too often left out of the federal programs meant to mitigate those impacts. @maziehirono and I are introducing legislation to fix that.

Many people are surprised to learn that Hawaii has serious wildfires that are a growing risk to communities and the environment. That's why I’m working hard to make sure the infrastructure bill has funds to help firefighting crews and land managers. washingtonpost.com/weather/2021/0…
Hawaii families who received a Child Tax Credit payment last month: share with me how it has helped your family. We’re fighting to make it permanent and we need your help hirono.senate.gov/share-child-ta…
Renters in Hawaii and across the country shouldn’t have to fear eviction during a pandemic—and I am relieved to hear that President Biden is acting to provide temporary relief. But these problems persist, and we need to address housing insecurity in the long term.
Good news per Hawai`i Civil Defense: the threat from the Mana Road fire is stabilized and evacuation orders are lifted. Smoke is still hazardous & residents are advised not to return to their homes unless "absolutely necessary." staradvertiser.com/2021/08/01/bre…

Hawaii families: make sure the IRS has your updated information so you can receive your Child Tax Credit payments as soon as possible. The deadline to make any changes before the next round of payments is tonight at 6pm. Visit IRS.gov for more info.
Millions of Americans are receiving terrifying eviction notices in the mail today. Meanwhile, states have yet to disburse BILLIONS in aid to struggling renters. The CDC should immediately reinstate its eviction moratorium to protect those at risk.
Congratulations to Hawaii’s own @rissmoore10 on your Olympic gold! twitter.com/TeamUSA/status…
31 years ago the ADA was signed into law because of sustained advocacy in communities across the country. Today, there’s more we must do to protect fundamental rights and freedoms for people with disabilities #ADA31
For too many Republicans, encouraging people to get vaccinated or wear a mask is apparently an affront to "freedom" but denying a woman the right to control her own body is a-ok. cnn.com/2021/07/22/pol…
Truth hurts Republicans. They ran from it with the sham FBI investigation and confirmed Brett Kavanaugh. They didn't want the truth three years ago when the Trump White House buried THOUSANDS of tips, and they clearly don't want it now. But we do. nytimes.com/2021/07/22/us/…
