Staunch ally Bass rallies support for Obama jobs speech

Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), one of Barack Obama’s key allies, called for democratic supporters to rally behind his crucial jobs speech Thursday. She also pre-empted criticism on the Republican side by noting that even if House Speaker John Boehner wrote the address, he’d oppose it if the president delivered it. Bass made her comments at a press briefing Saturday while hosting the Grand Opening of her District Office, located at 4929 Wilshire Boulevard, which was attended by over 200 invited guests. The former Assembly Speaker actually opened the office in January, following last ...

Congresswoman Karen Bass remembers civil activist L. Mobley

South Los Angeles activist Lillian Mobley, who advocated for better education, transportation, healthcare and other public services for the community, has died. She was 81. Her son Kenneth Mobley says his mother died Monday at Centinela Medical Center in Los Angeles from natural causes. Mobley was part of a group that spearheaded the fight to bring a hospital to South Los Angeles residents after the 1965 Watts riot. The result was Martin Luther King Hospital, later known as Martin Luther King/Drew Medical Center. Her son says Mobley also was instrumental in the opening of the Charles Drew ...

Bass talks health care reform in wake of strike down ...

A conservative federal appeals panel struck down President Barack Obama's health care overhaul Friday. Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) warned on KPCC's Patt Morrison's program that the conservative federal appeals panel that struck down the health care overhaul is "part of the ongoing effort to make sure that health care reform does not get implemented in this country." Bass said while those actions can slow down the process of implementing universal health care, they can't stop them. "So long as we retain the senate and the current president in the White House they [conservatives] will never be ...

Black Caucus Women Back Elizabeth Warren, Read Letter That Earned Her Senate Rebuke
WASHINGTON - The women of the Congressional Black Caucus had Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s back Wednesday night. Before the Senate confirmed Sen. Jeff Sessions as President Donald Trump’s attorney general on a 52-47 vote, 13 black caucus Democrats took to video and read a letter by the late Martin Luther King’s widow critical of the Alabama Republican - the same letter that got Warren, D-Mass., barred from speaking on the Senate floor after she read from it Tuesday night.
Rep. Bass Issues Statement on Unanimous Court Ruling Against Trump Ban
"Last night, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled rejecting the Trump administration's travel ban. This unanimous ruling to side with the constitution not only will benefit the hundreds of thousands threatened with being separated from loved ones, it will also make our country safer. The president's predictable lashing out on social media after the verdict adds an additional troubling aspect of this entire ordeal, as he seems inclined to further question the integrity of our country's high court system. We now wait to see whether the president will honor this verdict or continue his attempt, rooted in hate, to ban Muslims from entering our country. As I wrote in a letter to the administration last week, I urge President Trump to rescind this hateful order so that the healing process from this terrible law can begin."
Rep. Bass Joins Bipartisan Coalition to Introduce Legislation to Ban Juvenile Solitary Confinement
“The MERCY Act rightly calls attention to the need for smart reform and trauma-informed care for all justice-involved youth and is a necessary piece of legislation that aims to eliminate harmful and dangerous confinement practices for this vulnerable population,” Rep. Bass, a member of the House Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations, stated. “It is time we start addressing the underlying issues of trauma and abuse, as well as the emotionally damaging triggers of adolescent behaviors in a humane and medically informed way. The bottom line here is that cruel and inhumane conditions of confinement for youth in America must stop.” The solitary confinement of young people is a serious and widespread problem in the United States. Each day, in jails and prisons across America, youth under the age of 18 are held in solitary confinement often for weeks or months at a time. In 2011 alone, more than 95,000 youth were held in prisons and jails, and a sign
