Upholding the Constitution

Feb 25, 2019
Pelosi Update

National Emergency Declaration

President Trump’s emergency declaration proclamation undermines the separation of powers and Congress’s power of the purse, a power exclusively reserved by the text of the Constitution to the first branch of government, the Legislative branch, a branch co-equal to the Executive. We have a solemn responsibility to uphold the Constitution, and defend our system of checks and balances against the President’s assault.


The House of Representatives is taking action to restore our system of checks and balances & reassert Congress’s constitutional responsibilities. This issue is not about politics or partisanship; it is about patriotism. 

We Are Here to Help

My office was contacted by a parent-teacher organization requesting assistance in the revocation of their non-profit status. In working closely with the group and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), my staff was able to confirm the group’s reinstatement of their non-profit 501(c)(3) status, current and retroactive.

         Caseworkers in my San Francisco office work to address any problems or concerns you may have with a federal government agency. To submit a Casework Authorization Form, please visit my website.
