Message from Tom Steyer - Need to Impeach

A president who is under investigation and who has already committed eight impeachable offenses should not be allowed to choose a U.S. Supreme Court justice with a lifetime appointment. But Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's decision yesterday to step down is giving this lawless president the opportunity to reshape the Supreme Court for a generation.

Children who come to our borders seeking asylum with their parents — a protected right under international law — have been forcibly separated from their families. This is a practice that has been recently implemented by the Department of Homeland Security. This is not a law that Congress needs to change. It is a needlessly cruel and inhumane policy that Trump could end right now. Children, the most vulnerable among us, deserve to be with their families, not scarred by the trauma of living in cages at detention centers. Join us in a call to action with the East West Alliance, along with many concerned mothers, fathers, siblin
