Steny Hoyer  Rep. Steny Hoyer represents the 5th Congressional District of Maryland & is the Democratic Whip in the US House of Representatives.

As we recognize the 5th anniversary of #DACA, #IStandWithImmigrants & will continue to #DefendDACA so that DREAMers can continue to contribute to this country in whose future we share.

Today, I joined @repgutierrez and the @hispanic.caucus to introduce the #AmericanHopeAct, which would offer a pathway to citizenship to #DREAMers, who came to this country as children through no fault of their own. Immigrants are not a burden on this country. Indeed, they are one of the great strengths of this country. I urge Republicans to bring this bill to the Floor.

This morning, I stood alongside my colleagues in House Democratic leaders to deliver a simple message to Republicans: the Affordable Care Act is the law of the land and each of us have a responsibility to make sure that it is implemented in a way that is positive for Americans.

The Commander-in-Chief is dead, flat wrong on his decision to ban transgender Americans from serving in the military. It is in the best interest of our military to #ProtectTransTroops, and Democrats will continue to speak out against this divisive ban.

I joined @reprubengallego, @repfilemonvela, and @rep.peteaguilar at a press conference today to oppose the legislative gimmick Republicans will use to avoid an up-or-down vote on funding for President Trump's ineffective border wall.

I was proud to join @aftunion today at a rally to speak out against the Republican budget. We will raise our voices until we win this battle against the #GOPBudget #KidsNotCuts

Today would be the 99th birthday of Nelson Mandela—a champion of freedom who never stopped fighting to make the world more just. #MandelaDay

Today, I joined AFSCME at the #PeoplesFilibuster against #TrumpCare. Together, we’ll continue to speak out against this legislation and urge Senate Republicans to abandon it and work with Democrats to improve the Affordable Care Act.

This morning, Democrats will be responding to your questions on #TrumpCare that are tweeted using the hashtag #AskDems. Follow the @housedemocrats Democrats' twitter account - @HouseDemocrats – this morning to see our video response.

#HartzlerAmd is not about defense. It has one purpose and one purpose only: to politically denigrate some of our fellow citizens, to treat them less equally than we would want to be treated. I’m proud the House voted down this anti-#LGBT amendment.

Do you have questions on #TrumpCare for @housedemocrats? We’ll be answering your questions between 9:00 a.m. and noon tomorrow. Tweet your questions using hashtag #AskDems & stay tuned for video responses.

Have you posted your question for this afternoon’s #Hoyer5at5? Know someone who wants to ask a question? Ask your question or tag a friend in the comments and tune into my @Facebook page tonight at 5:00 p.m. to see my response. I look forward to your questions.
