On my way to vote, I took this picture. I am still in awe of our nation's capitol. There are serious challenges and hard work to do for our country but I feel blessed to be in this fight, that NJ gave me the privilege to be their Senator and that I have an opportunity to serve in this time of importance.

President Trump's budget proposal is objectionable in so many ways.

Cutting Medicaid, Social Security, anti-poverty programs, childhood education, science research in such severe and extreme ways – these are shortsighted, craven actions that will end up costing the American people much more money in the long run.

The good news? The budget is now in the hands of Congress – which means it's...

Attorney General Jeff Sessions' new policy seeking the most severe sentences, including mandatory minimums, for nonviolent drug offenders is completely backwards. It will erode the progress we've made on mass incarceration and criminal justice reform in recent years— and it won’t make us safer.

Sessions’ intention to jumpstart the War on Drugs 2.0 will continue to balloon our already...

I’ve joined my colleague Tom Udall to introduce legislation repealing the Congressional Review Act (CRA) -- a mechanism Republicans have continuously exploited and abused this year allowing the swift repeal, with little notice or public debate, of many protections that benefit everyday Americans.

In just 3 months, President Trump and Republicans have misused the CRA to kill over a dozen...

Mandatory minimum sentences and ‘three strikes, you’re out’ laws on nonviolent offenders has done little to curb the illegal drug trade in our country — instead, these cruel sentencing guidelines have destroyed entire communities, disproportionally poor and of color.

President Trump's transition team had full knowledge that Michael Flynn was under federal investigation yet they still made the conscious decision to make him National Security Advisor — a job that "gave Mr. Flynn access to the president and nearly every secret held by American intelligence agencies."

Today, the FCC voted to move forward on rolling back net neutrality, potentially limiting Americans’ access to a free and open internet. Reversing net neutrality would give internet service providers the power to control what you see online by auctioning space off to the highest bidders. Bigger companies would be able to pay more to show you their content, while startups would struggle to...

This is an important step in the right direction. We must get to the bottom of Russia’s dangerous and unprecedented interference in our election to hold accountable those responsible and ensure it doesn’t happen again – it’s a matter of national security.

With only about 5% of the world’s population, but nearly 25% of its prisoners, here in America, the “land of the free” we warehouse far too many people — many of whom are nonviolent drug offenders — which hurts families and communities and costs taxpayers nearly $100 billion a year.

Criminal justice reform is a bipartisan issue — both Democrats and Republicans agree that we need to take...

Under Trump, Republican leadership has abused the Congressional Review Act (CRA) in order to fast track the repeal of numerous important protections that benefit everyday Americans – all with little notice or public debate.

These stunning disclosures point to the possibility that President Trump personally engaged in obstruction of justice in the Oval Office. This must be a wake-up call for congressional Republicans to begin holding Trump accountable, to put country first, and to act immediately in a bipartisan fashion to get to the bottom of this.

Instructing our country’s 2,300 federal prosecutors to pursue the most severe charges against low-level, nonviolent drug offenders is a major step backward for criminal justice that doesn’t make us safer. Jeff Sessions could not be more wrong in his decision — a decision that will benefit private prison profits and not much else.

It's becoming clearer just how bad the House AHCA bill is for Americans, especially the most vulnerable among us -- including the elderly, children, and people with disabilities currently covered under Medicaid.

Earlier this week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed an anti-immigrant law that requires local law enforcement to help ICE enforce immigration law, enabling police officers to ask about the immigration status of anyone they detain.

Abbott justified this law by saying: “Texans expect us to keep them safe, and that is exactly what we are going to do by me signing this law."
