Dulles Airport here in #VA10 has been a gateway for thousands of Afghan refugees safely arriving in the U.S. in recent weeks. Thank you to the federal, state, & local personnel who are working hard to welcome these families to our Commonwealth and ensuring they're cared for. twitter.com/therecount/sta…
I enjoyed a delicious lunch at Petite Loulou, a French-style crêperie and café in Purcellville! It was great to meet some of their team and hear about how they've fared over the challenging past year.
I've spent the day touring outstanding small businesses in Purcellville with Mayor Fraser. Thanks @catoctincreek, Nichols Hardware, & Blue Ridge Veterinary Associates for having me! I'll keep working hard in Congress to support #VA10's small businesses, especially during COVID.
.@PathwayHomes provides mental health services and stable housing for members of our community who are in need. I appreciated learning more about the hundreds of Virginians they've helped over the past year and seeing their beautiful new community garden.
The Democratic budget resolution will make the transformative investments that America's kids and families need to thrive. This is how we come out of the COVID crisis stronger and ready to #BuildBackBetter.
I spoke with leaders from the Afghan-American community in our region today about their efforts to aid the evacuation and resettlement of Afghans. Their partnership is invaluable as my team and I continue our work to get Americans & our allies out of danger and safely cared for.

My heart breaks for the U.S. servicemembers killed and wounded, as well as for their families. These attacks are sickening and heinous. I'm immensely grateful for the courage displayed by our troops as they have worked around the clock to save American and Afghan lives. twitter.com/PentagonPresSe…
Today is #WomensEqualityDay, a time to celebrate the progress we've made to advance women's rights and equality—and to focus on the work we still have ahead of us. In Congress, I've been a champion for equal rights, equal pay, and women's health & reproductive care.
It remains our priority to get those evacuating the country out safely. To anyone currently in Kabul, please follow U.S. security guidance and avoid traveling to the airport. If you are outside the gates, please leave immediately. twitter.com/travelgov/stat…
I'm sickened to hear reports of the deadly attack outside the Kabul airport. My thoughts are with the U.S. servicemembers, allies, and Afghans who were victims of the attack, and I am grateful for the courage of our troops stationed at the airport. cnn.com/world/live-new…
I visited family-owned and operated Cochran's Lumber this afternoon to see firsthand their facility in Berryville. Cochran's floorings are found in homes and businesses all across the country—and all crafted right here in #VA10.
I had a great meeting today with Jay Arnold, Berryville Mayor and owner of Berryville Auto Parts—a staple of the community for decades. We discussed COVID recovery and how we can continue to support the needs of our localities like Berryville in Congress.
Happy Birthday, @NatlParkService! 🎉 #VA100 is home to so many amazing National Park sites, and I've fought in Congress to deliver much-needed funding to upkeep and protect our parks. #FindYourParkk here 👇nps.gov/subjects/npsce…PjM5
The Supreme Court has gutted the Voting Rights Act, and now the right to vote is under attack across the country. I'm proud to vote to pass #HR4, named in honor of John Lewis, to #RestoreTheVote and fight back against voter discrimination & suppression. washingtonpost.com/powerpost/voti…
I just voted to advance the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal and #BuildBackBetter agenda. In the coming weeks, we'll be hard at work to enact transformative, life-changing investments in Virginia families, jobs, and physical infrastructure. cnbc.com/2021/08/24/hou…
The @NatlParkService is turning 105 tomorrow, and that means free admissions to all National Park sites! Find out more about Virginia's many beautiful National Park sites below. 👇�nps.gov/state/va/index…Eusatoday.com/story/travel/e…A6
Getting Americans out of harm’s way must be our top priority—but we also cannot abandon our Afghan allies. I spoke on the floor about actions I'm urging the Biden admin to take to ensure we're using every tool we have to support the relocation of those in danger in Afghanistan.

I enjoyed getting a special look at Garber's ice cream making process this afternoon. Garber's has been family owned and serving the Shenandoah Valley since 1912—and their ice cream products are delicious! 🍦X
I'm spending the afternoon in Winchester, where I visited the Wellness Pharmacy for a tour from owner John. I learned about their compounding process and heard more about the ways they serve families in the Winchester community.
The Biden admin must take concrete steps to support the relocation of at risk Afghans, including the establishment of a humanitarian parole program and increased processing capacity at USCIS. See our letter from @RepGraceMeng, @RepHoulahan, & 74 of my House colleagues.
I had a great afternoon going around Sterling with @LoudounBiz! I visited Meow's Corner cat lounge to hang out with some furry friends, and then met with @IACETorg to hear more about their work to support quality education & workforce training programs in our community.
My friend Supervisor @Koran4sterling and I had a wonderful lunch at Joe's Pizzaria today. We chatted with Moe, the owner, about how his small business has fared during the COVID crisis and enjoyed some delicious food!
I visited the @LeidosInc airborne operations facility in Manassas today to see their impressive operations up close. I'm proud that #VA10 is home to companies like Leidos who are essential partners in defending our national security.
Thank you to the Capitol Police, MPD, ATF, and other law enforcement personnel who have heroically deescalated the situation. Our Capitol community can breathe a sigh of relief thanks to your successful efforts to take this terrorist into custody. twitter.com/dcpolicedept/s…

The U.S. must do everything in our power to help as many people as we can get safely out of Afghanistan. I joined @RepSaraJacobs in a bipartisan letter to the White House expressing concern about the evacuation process and offering whatever resources we can to help. twitter.com/RepSaraJacobs/…
I'm proud to cosponsor #HR4, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, to restore protections against voter suppression and discrimination across the country. Every American deserves full and equal access to the ballot box. We must #RestoreTheVote. 🗳️nytimes.com/2021/08/17/us/…0

I visited @HealthWorksNova today & thanked the team for their tireless work to keep our #VA10 community healthy during COVID. I was glad to hear the ways that federal funds have made it possible for HealthWorks to provide services to Virginians regardless of insurance or income.
Thank you to members of the @ffxfirerescue team who have deployed to Haiti to aid the earthquake recovery efforts. The work these Virginians are doing will help save lives and get critical resources to those in need right now. twitter.com/ffxfirerescue/…
I am deeply concerned about the situation in Afghanistan. We must ensure our Afghan partners on the ground, who have helped us immensely throughout the years, are evacuated and protected.

I met with local business leaders today to discuss COVID recovery and hear about issues that are important to our #VA10 business owners and workers. It's important to me that I hear directly from folks on the ground about how Congress can help support our local economy and jobs.
I'm thinking of the Charlottesville community today, 4 years after the violent white supremacist rally. We remember those who lost their lives—Heather Heyer, Trooper-Pilot Berke Bates, & Lt. Jay Cullen. We all have a responsibility to stand up against hate in our Commonwealth.
I spent a wonderful afternoon around Clifton with Mayor Hollaway today! We had a delicious lunch at @VillagioClifton and then stopped in Clifton Cafe to chat with Michelle, the owner, and her team.
Great report detailing how goods from Xinjiang find their way to America despite recent attention to forced labor. My Uyghur Forced Labor Disclosure Act would force companies to shine a light on opaque supply chains & keep these products off store shelves.buzzfeednews.com/article/meghar…
It's past time that we reform statutes of limitations laws for child sex abuse crimes. SOLs block survivors from having their day in court while shielding perpetrators from being brought to justice. My new bipartisan bill incentivizes states to eliminate these barriers.
Are you a parent to one of the 135,000 kids in #VA10 who are eligible to receive an advanced #ChildTaxCredit payment? I want to hear from you! Can you take a minute to share how these advanced payments are helping your family? 👇�bit.ly/VA10CTCwm9
I had a great meeting with local health care leaders from @HealthInFocus this afternoon. We discussed our fight against the Delta variant, how aid from the American Rescue Plan is being put to use, and support for #VA10 nurses and health care workers.
