Defending DACA

I am disappointed and angry with President Trump's action to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Like many Americans, I am tired of the constant barrage of hateful policies and statements coming from the White House.

Dreamers.

Forcing these kids into the shadows of our society instead of embracing them as productive members of our communities, our colleges and our workforce is a calculated political maneuver designed to further divide the nation. I've met many Dreamers and feel the administration's decision is simply un-American.

I hope my colleagues--Democrats and Republicans--will stand with me and our immigrant communities in opposition to the repeal of DACA.
 

Report Price Gouging

I want to warn consumers of the dangers of price gouging and serve notice to anyone seeking to exploit vulnerable consumers.

customer at gas pump.

Over the last few years, Connecticut has endured a series of severe and damaging storms that have created a higher demand for fuel, water and other supplies, as well as lodging due to extended power outages.

The vast majority of businesspeople do the right thing and follow the law after these storms, however, a few businesspeople have been known to exploit vulnerable consumers by charging unreasonable prices for these goods and services.

If consumers believe a business is charging an unreasonable price, or has raised its price to take advantage of the emergency, they should contact the State Department of Consumer Protection at 1-800-842-2649.
