Independence Day Greetings

I truly hope you and your family enjoy a happy holiday.

Admittedly, it's complicated in the era of Trump.

Celebrating our nation's independence from government tyranny has special meaning at a time when liberty and freedom are under assault.

The current administration and their allies in Congress pledged to uphold and protect the Constitution, but they are failing.

Travel is restricted based on religion and skin color. If the Statue of Liberty were a person, she would hang her head in shame.

The despicable way asylum seekers are being treated at our borders is un-American.

Immigrants, people of color, religious minorities, and LGBTQ+ people are persecuted at every turn.

Civil rights, voting rights, and equal protections are under siege.

Members of our beloved free press are condemned for doing their jobs of shining a light on abuses of power.

Cherishing and defending our freedoms and working to extend them is the mark of true patriotism.

Today, on our most American of holidays, along with you, I'll enjoy time with friends and family. Tomorrow, I get back to work doing all I can to uphold the Constitution.

Warm regards and Happy Fourth of July!

Ellen
