“We are devastated to learn about the latest acts of unconscionable violence against the Asian American and Pacific Islander community in Georgia. For too long the AAPI community has experienced discrimination, violence and harassment that has now reached historically high levels. We stand in solidarity with them today and every day. We send our condolences to the victims and their families and vow to fight this hatred and bigotry. May their memories be a blessing.”

As the United States prepares to mark one year since the coronavirus pandemic upended our lives — shuttering businesses, closing schools, and destroying livelihoods — Senate and House Democrats have worked tirelessly to fulfill President Biden’s campaign pledge to pass the American Rescue Plan. We congratulate Speaker Pelosi and Leader Schumer on their steady leadership maneuvering this bill through congress and, hopefully, onto President Biden’s desk this week.
"President Trump was wrong to exit the JCPOA without any plan to get a better deal, and we applaud President Biden’s efforts to reach a diplomatic agreement. However, we are deeply disappointed that Iran has failed to return to compliance with the JCPOA as President Biden has demanded, continued overt and covert violations of its nuclear commitments, continued attacks against US and Israeli interests, and is even refusing to meet for further discussions. Iran can certainly not be rewarded for this behavior."
