October 24-30 Weekly Update

November 5, 2020

Dear friend,

We are 4 days away from Election Day! Yesterday, the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that all absentee ballots in Minnesota must be in by 8pm on November 3rd. If you still have your absentee ballot, you can return your ballot at an election center or at one of these drop box locations here. You can also vote early in-person or on Election Day. To find your polling location, you can click here.

We must continue to do our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Many hospitals and clinics in our district have testing available. You can view testing sites that are offering free COVID-9 tests here.

I hosted an immigration town hall with Senator Hirono to discuss ways to build a more equitable world for our immigrant communities. You can watch the compilation video here or full video here.

Calling for International Investigation Into DHS Human Rights Abuses

Trump oversaw massive human rights abuses from child separation, forced hysterectomies of women, and unconscionable treatment of immigrant detainees. I, along with my sisters in service, called for an independent investigation into these atrocities.
