Official Daily Action for Wednesday, December 5, 2018
All four of our Members of Congress have co-written a letter to the Acting Inspector General John Kelly asking for an investigation into conditions at the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, and into the death of asylum-seeker Mergansana Amar.
Rep Jayapal went to the border this last weekend, and used her power to help people on the ground there.
Let's thank them for their good work!
