The President’s anti-Muslim travel ban is a disgrace to our Nation and the values for which we stand. This expanded travel ban is un-American and makes us less safe. #NoBan
National security experts have made it clear there is no evidence that individuals traveling from these countries present higher security risks.

This isn’t about safety. This is about prejudice.
Hate has no place in our Nation. That’s why I’m a cosponsor of several pieces of legislation to combat these cruel intentions, including the Burma Human Rights Freedom Act and the NO BAN Act. America must stand as a beacon for hope and freedom, not discrimination.

I’m a U.S. senator who has done something rare in today’s politics: I’ve changed my position on our nation’s gun laws.

After doing so, I didn’t burst into flames or get run out of town.

That’s how I know others can choose to do the same.🧵…
I came to Washington in 2007 with the firm belief that to support and honor Pennsylvania’s deep-rooted hunting culture meant that I should not support restrictions on guns.

Then Sandy Hook happened.
The idea that 26 children and educators could be slaughtered in a matter of minutes because a 20-year-old had virtually unfettered access to weapons of war was too much to bear.

So I changed my position. Now, it’s time for many of my colleagues in the Senate to do the same.

This morning, I held a roundtable with students in Philadelphia to discuss the impacts of gun violence on their lives and communities and what Congress must do to end this epidemic and save lives. Sen. Casey speaking at the roundtableSen. Casey shaking hands with a roundtable participant
As of 2020, the leading cause of death among children and teens in America is gun violence. It’s a staggering reminder of the breadth and impact of this uniquely American problem.

We cannot simply surrender to this problem.
My Democratic colleagues and I secured $50 million for a new Community Based Violence Intervention and Prevent grant program and the Department of Justice is accepting applications.…

URGENT: In its last months in office, the Trump Administration is seeking to deport vulnerable children and their parents from the Berks Family Residential Center and the South Texas Family Residential Center. (thread)
These parents and children fled unspeakable violence in their home countries in Haiti, Central America and South America. For many of them, deportation is tantamount to a death sentence. /2
Included is this group is a girl (15) who fled Honduras after gang members tried to torture, rape, and kill her; a boy (14) who fled domestic violence and human trafficking in Guatemala; a three-year-old who was ripped from his mother’s arms and held captive by gang members... /3

Our Nation has reached another painful milestone in the COVID-19 pandemic. Two hundred thousand Americans have lost their lives to this cruel virus. Every death represents a human life lost, a family shattered, a community forever changed.
We have lost parents, sisters and brothers, grandparents, friends, colleagues, classmates, neighbors and heroes on the front lines.
My prayers and my deepest sympathies are with those who have lost loved ones, and those who are living with the long-term health repercussions of the virus.

It didn’t have to be this way.

The next Supreme Court justice is likely to be the deciding vote on whether the Affordable Care Act will be overturned, which will mean up to 5.5 million people in PA will lose their protections for pre-existing conditions, and 996,000 more will lose their insurance entirely.
It is disturbing and hypocritical that Republican Senators would attempt to fill this vacancy now while Americans across the country have already begun casting their ballots in this presidential election…
…especially when they were unwilling to even grant a hearing to President Obama’s nominee to the court in early 2016.

Today’s vote was another bad faith effort by Republicans, who refused to engage in meaningful and bipartisan negotiations all summer. This proposal fails to meet the needs of workers and families who have been struggling for months.
It has no support for food assistance, no relief for renters facing eviction, no funding for state and local governments which are laying off employees because the federal government isn’t helping them.
The Republican bill doesn’t provide any additional money for nursing homes. And it has no investment to help seniors and people with disabilities receive the services they need to stay safe at home,...
