"The four House freshmen whom Pelosi dismisses in the Dowd column have done more to define the vision and moral center of today's Democratic party than all of the message bills pushed by the party leadership combined", Fallon wrote in a Sunday tweet.

"Climate change is a national emergency, and I am proud to be introducing this resolution with my House and Senate colleagues". Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley.
Pelosi says bills under consideration include banning most family separations unless they're meant to protect the child.
Pelosi specifically pointed to the example of the House-passed Democratic border bill in late June, which the group opposed.

"The United States has completely abdicated its responsibility and role in Latin America.we are not acting like an equal partner or neighbor in the western hemisphere", she added.
