My statement on H.R. 5961:
Congressman for New York's 10th Congressional District in the House of Representatives
My statement on H.R. 5961:
Tamar (78) and Yoram (80) were violently abducted by Hamas and forced to silently sit in a dark room under threat of more violence.
Tamar was released but Yoram remains held in those horrific conditions.
The international community must force Hamas to release the hostages. Now.
The Weaponization Subcommittee star witness (who has now given the same testimony TWICE) believes that it's perfectly fine for Elon Musk to profit off of graphic, violent content and Hamas propaganda.
Does that mean Jim Jordan and the House Judiciary Committee GOP also endorse profiting off of Hamas violence?
We need serious immigration reform, not more GOP messaging bills focused on political gamesmanship.
Let's instead pass my Disarming Cartels Act to stop the flow of U.S.-made guns that fuel crime on our southern border to cartels.
Dems have solutions. We just need GOP partners.
Even as rent skyrockets, corporate landlords in New York keep burdening renters with junk fees that make it even harder for families to pay their bills.
Representative Maxwell Alejandro Frost's End Junk Fees for Renters Act is critical to ending these fees and ensuring New Yorkers can secure affordable housing.
Santos is an admitted liar, fraud, cheat, and the recent Ethics Report confirms he is unfit for public office.
Today, Congressman Robert Garcia and I reintroduced our resolution to expel him from Congress.
Now the GOP must stop protecting him and stop putting politics over the people.
Today, I urged the New York State Attorney General to investigate RealPage Inc., which has allegedly facilitated anticompetitive behavior and artificially inflated rent prices.
New Yorkers are already severely rent burdened – we must hold accountable bad actors who manipulate the market to pursue profit.
Rep. Dan Goldman is calling for a state investigation into RealPage, a tech company accused of violating antitrust laws and allowing landlords to conspire to raise rents.
Calls to expel Palestinians from the U.S. are racist, xenophobic and have no place in our government. We cannot stand for rhetoric that fans the flames of hate in this nation.
Rep. Greg Landsman and I are condemning these hateful and anti-American proposals.
The proposal is "designed to inflame tensions which could result in violence," the Democrats said.
I’m horrified by the attack on three Palestinian students in Burlington, VT over the weekend and am praying for their full recovery.
As authorities investigate the motive behind these crimes, we must remember that hate of any kind – especially violence – has no place in the U.S.
My statement on the release of hostages and required conditions to end hostilities between Israel and Hamas:
Thank you Brooklyn Community District 2 for welcoming me to your office this morning to discuss your priorities and goals for NY-10.
Community boards across the City play an essential role in advocating for our communities. I look forward to being an asset and partner in lifting everyone up in NYC.
COVID-19 took a tremendous toll on children’s well-being and mental health – we owe it to our kids to support them in this critical period of their lives.
When our children suffer, our country suffers. We must fight to get our kids the care they deserve.
Ahead of the holidays, my team and I had a busy week in service to NY-10. Read all about it in the weekly wrap-up!
It’s Small Business Saturday!
As you look you do your holiday shopping, don’t forget to check out the many vibrant small businesses across NY-10 that make our district so great!
The work the Gowanus Canal Conservancy does to advocate for the Gowanus community is invaluable. Working in partnership, we can continue to work towards a community that provides vibrant and resilient green space and takes care of our environment.
X’s profiteering and failure to curtail the promotion of misinformation and violent, Hamas terrorist propaganda videos is unacceptable.
Rep. Jamie Raskin and I led 25 members in demanding X stop profiting off of this content, enforce X's policies, and act in the public good.
As Elon Musk and X fend off accusations of promoting antisemitic content, House Democrats want to know how they plan to rein in Hamas-related content.
Today, I joined Congressman Jared Moskowitz and the families of the victims for a startling and moving walk-through of Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS.
Five years ago, 17 lives were brutally cut short in the Parkland shooting. We must carry their memories with us as we fight to end gun violence.
This week, I introduced the ‘Disarming Cartels Act’ to stop the flow of U.S.-manufactured guns into the hands of Mexican cartels.
Check out the rest of the week in our wrap-up below:
As I've said repeatedly and Secretary Mayorkas reiterated, our immigration system needs comprehensive legislative reform – only doable by Congress.
Border security isn't a political game. My GOP colleagues must stop playing politics and join me in passing meaningful immigration laws.
Thank you to President Gilles from the Park Slope Civic Council for meeting with me in my Brooklyn office.
The Civic Council has a long history of advocacy – more than 100 years – here in Park Slope and continues to be a great partner in service to the community.
Violence and conflict is sadly occurring all around the world, including in Sudan where the civil war has already resulted in thousands of deaths of innocent civilians.
My heart goes out to the people of Sudan who are suffering at this time.
Seven months into Sudan’s civil war, the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces and its allies are ransacking and capturing the Darfur region. An aid worker said, “People are dying like insects.”
It was truly my pleasure to meet with the Brooklyn Chinese-American Association Senior Center residents and founder Paul Mak to learn about the organization’s work, discuss community priorities, and identify ways my office can better support the Sunset Park community.
My statement on the release of the House Ethics Committee's report on George Santos:
Violence by Israeli settlers against Palestinians in the West Bank poses a threat to Israel’s near-term security, Palestinian human rights, and long-term regional peace.
Senator Cory Booker and I are calling on President Joe Biden to make clear to our Israeli allies that this violence is unacceptable.
Gun violence is now the leading killer of kids in the US.
It’s why as Chair of the Dads Caucus Gun Violence Prevention Working Group, I was glad to welcome reps from Everytown for Gun Safety, GIFFORDS, and Brady: United Against Gun Violence to discuss commonsense gun safety laws to save our kids' lives.
They can't wait.
Yesterday, I marched alongside over 100,000 Americans in solidarity with the Israeli people to demand the immediate release of all remaining hostages in Gaza and call for ending antisemitism worldwide.
We need to bring our brothers and sisters home. Never Again must mean now.
Elizabeth Naftali lost her niece and nephew on Oct 7, and her 3yo niece remains a Hamas hostage.
Yet Chairman Comer is so desperate to dig up evidence to support his sham impeachment inquiry that he targeted a grieving Ms. Naftali with a subpoena about buying art.
Experts agree—the best way to secure our border and disrupt fentanyl and human trafficking is to stop the flow of US-made guns to Mexican cartels.
The GOP bill does not mention the source of cartels' power: guns. So I urge Republicans to support my Disarming Cartels Act instead.
Fentanyl and human trafficking are controlled by Mexican drug cartels, who rely on US-made guns to fuel their power.
To stop crime on the border, we must stop the exportation of weapons of war. My Disarming Cartels Act will take away the cartels' power and make our border safer.
Rep. Dan Goldman, a Democrat from New York, is introducing the Disarming Cartels Act, which aims to curb gun trafficking from the U.S. into Mexico.
Working families across the country need federal support, and they need it now.
The ‘Working Families Task Force Act’ will create a strong, central task force which would direct resources and coordinate a national strategy to help all working families nationwide.
Happy Diwali to the Hindu, Sikh, Jain, and Buddhist New Yorkers celebrating this joyous holiday!
May this Diwali bring you and your family peace and light!
This week my team and I worked to recognize the contributions of American veterans, increase access to internet for disadvantaged communities, protect Palestinians in the U.S., applauded Biden’s Amtrak investment, and investigate Clarence Thomas’ malpractices.
On Veterans Day, we honor those who risk their lives in defense of our freedom and democracy. I am humbled by the stories of the veterans I have met across NY-10 and am deeply grateful for the service of those in uniform, past and present.

The PACT Act is a new law that expands VA health care and benefits for Veterans exposed to burn pits, Agent Orange, and other toxic substances. The PACT Act adds to the list of health conditions that we assume (or “presume”) are caused by exposure to these substances. This law helps us provide g...
On November 10, 1775, the United States Marine Corps was established to augment naval forces in the Revolutionary War. Thank you to all Marines, past and present, who have served to protect and defend our nation. Happy Birthday, Marines!

Yesterday, I joined Senator Dick Durbin, Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, and Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky in calling on the Biden Administration to extend TPS and DED to Palestinians in the United States, allowing families to remain safely here out of harm's way.
It’s time to start thinking about health care in 2024!

340B Program Hospitals provide 77% of Medicaid care and 67% of all unpaid care. But this essential health care program is under attack by Big Pharma.
Protecting affordable health care cannot wait.
Tonight, don’t forget to set your clocks back an hour as Daylight Savings comes to an end. Enjoy the extra hour of sleep!
If the House GOP were serious about helping the Department of Homeland Security secure the border, they'd vote for the White House's $13.6B border security budget request.
They have an opportunity to join us in taking decisive action to prioritize border security, as opposed to just political posturing.
Ensuring the safety and security of the American people is a national imperative.
