Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici said she shared a number of priorities with the incoming administration, including returning the U.S. to the Paris Climate Agreement, securing a path to citizenship for Dreamers and other immigrants fleeing violence, making infrastructure investments, providing debt relief to student loan borrowers, extending the federal eviction moratorium and resuming the ban on federal executions. "Today's inauguration was a hopeful yet solemn occasion, displaying our nation's resilience and commitment to democracy only two weeks after a violent attack on our Capitol," said Rep. Bonamici. "President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are the compassionate, qualified leaders we need as multiple crises — the COVID-19 crisis, the economic crisis, the climate crisis and the racial justice crisis — continue to grip our country."
