Sen. Merkley On Voting Rights, The Filibuster & Why Infrastructure Deal Must Address Climate Crisis

The Poor People’s Campaign held a demonstration Monday with clergy and low-wage workers where prominent civil rights leaders the Revs. Jesse L. Jackson and William J. Barber II were among about 200 people arrested outside the U.S. Capitol demonstrating to end the filibuster, to protect and expand voting rights, to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour and for “fair and respectful treatment” of immigrants. Three members of the Congressional Black Caucus also have been arrested during demonstrations at the Capitol.
