Menendez, Norcross Warn SCOTUS Pick Could Hinder Women’s Access to Health Care

U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez and U.S. Rep. Donald Norcross visited the CAMcare Gateway Health Center on Federal Street Monday afternoon to highlight the importance of access to affordable healthcare.

According to both Democratic officials, President Donald Trump’s impending U.S. Supreme Court Justice nominee is a threat health care rights for women, protections for patients with pre-existing conditions and the health care system — particularly the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

At 9 p.m., President Trump is expected to announce his nominee to replace retiring U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, a decision Menendez called “momentus.”

Norcross visits detained immigrant kids in N.J. Thankfully, they weren’t in chain-link fencing

Video chats on Skype from a Camden detention center has been the only lifeline for a child separated from his family as he tried to cross the border into the United States.

Rep. Donald Norcross, D, 1st, said he wasn't sure what to expect of the conditions for children being held in New Jersey after they were separated from their families as a result of stepped up border enforcement by the Trump administration.

The federal government wouldn't let him in for the past two weeks.

He had tried to visit a site run by the Center for Family Services with no success. When he finally got in Monday, he immediately reported what he saw.

"I wanted to make sure these kids were being held in an appropriate manner, one that is worthy of being called an American system," Norcross said during an afternoon news conference from the downtown Camden headquarters of the center. "After holding us back for two weeks, they never showed up."

U.S. House approves defense bill with $2.3B for purchase of new KC-46 tankers

“I’ve been long-fighting for ways to safeguard New Jersey’s joint base and the inclusion of $2.5 billion in funds for KC-46 refueling aircraft is a big win for our area. These refueling tankers will bring new jobs and growth to our state and make Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst an indispensable starting point for national security missions on the East Coast,” Norcross said. “Additionally, the bill provides a pay raise for service members, prohibits Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) and supports Israel, our democratic ally in the volatile Middle East. Overall, this bipartisan bill helps keep Americans safe by improving military readiness, securing our local base and strengthening our national defense.”
