Representative-elect Tlaib is one of the first of two Muslim women elected to Congress and is the first Palestinian-American woman in Congress. She has been vocal about her support for pursuing impeachment investigations of Donald Trump and is committed to holding our elected officials accountable to the Constitution.
Thank you, Representative-elect Tlaib, for your dedication to our democracy and for your efforts to provide new members of Congress with the tools to take action.
