Minority Teenage Pregnancy Bill Touted by Lawmakers


Legislation Provides Federal Funding for Minority Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs Despite the fact that our nation has made progress to reduce the rate of teen pregnancy, many minority communities continue to struggle with disproportionately high rates. To address disturbing statistics that show over half of all Latina and African American girls will become pregnant at least once before they turn 20, Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard and U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer introduced The Communities of Color Teenage Pregnancy Prevention Act of 2011. “Teenage pregnancies often lead to ...

Rep. Roybal-Allard Statement on TPS Decision from DHS
Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard (CA-40), the ranking Democrat on the House Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, issued the following statement on the Department of Homeland Security’s announcement about Temporary Protected Status (TPS) recipients: “The Department of Homeland Security’s termination of Temporary Protected Status for Nicaraguans is a cruel and shortsighted decision that will tear families apart, devastate communities, and weaken the U.S. economy.  And the brief reprieve for Honduran TPS recipients will only add to their anxiety and uncertainty about their future in America.  TPS recipients work hard to strengthen our industries and our communities.  They love America, and they are an integral part of our country.  Many have lived in the U.S. for more than a decade, and they are one of the most heavily vetted communities in our nation.  It makes no sense to subject them to a mass deportation.  And their U.S.-born childre
Rep. Roybal-Allard Statement on GOP Tax Bill
Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard (CA-40) issued the following statement about her vote against H.R. 1, the House Republican tax bill: “On behalf of America’s future generations who will be saddled with an unsurmountable debt created by H.R. 1, the Republican tax plan, I strongly opposed this bill.  This rushed piece of legislation will not only add more than $1.7 trillion to the national debt over the next 10 years, but it will also shift the burden of paying for that debt to our hardworking families. “Despite our Republican colleagues’ assertions that this tax plan will benefit the majority of Americans, numerous economists disagree.  They note that nearly 45% of all households with children will see a tax increase, while 80% of our wealthiest citizens will receive a tax cut by 2027. “Even more egregious, this tax bill seeks to eliminate the long-standing state and local tax deduction, subjecting every wage earner’s income to double taxation.  T
Rep. Roybal-Allard Joins Kids and Teens to Call for Congress to Pass a Clean Dream Act and Protect Families with TPS Before End of Year

Following the press conference, a delegation of kids and teens delivered letters sharing their “Dream for the Holidays” with their representatives in Congress and leaders in the House and Senate.  The letters urged Congress to pass a clean Dream
Seventy Members of Congress Demand Answers on Reports of Increased Detention of Pregnant Women
In a letter to Department of Homeland Security Acting Secretary Elaine Duke, co-chairs of the Women’s Working Group on Immigration Reform Congresswomen Lucille Roybal-Allard (CA-40) and Pramila Jayapal (WA-07) led 68 of their fellow members of Congress in expressing concern about increased detention rates of pregnant immigrant women and recent miscarriages in detention centers across the United States. “While it is unavoidable that some women who come into Customs and Border Protection (CBP) or ICE custody will be pregnant, especially in light of the high rates of sexual assault women and girls experience on their journey, attorneys and advocates are reporting a marked increase in the number of pregnant women with serious medical concerns coming to their attention in recent months, and a seeming shift in the agency’s willingness to release pregnant women once the pregnancy is identified,” wrote the members. “The detention of pregnant women is cruel, high-risk, and almos
