Pelosi Update

End the Shutdown!

It has been 28 days since President Trump forced the start of the Trump Shutdown.  This senseless shutdown is inflicting great pain across the country.  Every day the shutdown continues, the impacts spread, reaching into the lives of hard-working San Franciscans and Americans in every corner of the country.  All month, courageous San Franciscans have shared their stories, offering the most eloquent justification to re-open government.   I thank them for sharing their stories of pain, instability and uncertainty as a result of the Trump Shutdown. 

Democrats are proud to fight for American workers.  We have repeatedly urged the President and Leader McConnell to respect American workers and end the Trump Shutdown, and voted nine times to re-open government – but the Senate refuses to hold a single vote to end the chaos. The President must end his fear-mongering and fabrications, and re-open government now.


Congresswoman Pelosi held her weekly press conference where she discussed the effects of the Trump Shutdown. 

My office assisted in expediting the application of a new Social Security Number (SSN) for a constituent in order to apply for disability benefits through the Social Security Administration (SSA). After working closely with the Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation advocating on her behalf, she received her new SSN and card within 3 weeks so that she could apply for disability.
