Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) speaks with supporters as she spends the night outside the U.S. Capitol to call for for an extension of the federal eviction moratorium on July 31, 2021. Photo: Joshua Roberts/Getty Images

Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) was back on the steps of the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday, continuing her calls for President Biden and his administration to renew and expand the eviction moratorium.

Driving the news: "Our movement is growing. Over the last five days, our movement has received support from many of our House and Senate colleagues," Bush said in a statement Tuesday.

  • Bush has spent the night at the Capitol since Friday night, only taking a break Monday night to "recharge," per her press secretary. It is not clear how long she plans to stay on the Capitol steps.
  • Reps. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and others have joined Bush in sleeping on the steps of the Capitol to urge fellow Democrats to expand the eviction moratorium, which expired Saturday at midnight.
  • Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Ed. Markey (D-Mass.), as well as Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and others also showed up to lend their support.

  • "Especially as a formerly unhoused person, I am grateful to each and every one of them for recognizing and working to end this eviction emergency and for amplifying the call to extend the eviction moratorium," Bush said.

The big picture: The federal eviction moratorium expired Saturday at midnight after the House failed to secure enough votes to extend the ban.

  • Bush and other Democrats have since called on President Biden and his administration to immediately reinstate the protections as millions of Americans face the threat of eviction.
  • "What has become clear is that the quickest way to get this done is through the executive branch," Bush said Tuesday. "We urge President Biden to extend relief to our neighbors who right now face eviction."
  • The White House said on Monday that Biden has asked federal agencies to try and find ways to stop evictions after the Centers for Disease and Control Prevention (CDC) said it lacked the authority to extend its national eviction moratorium.
  • States including California and New York have extended their state eviction moratoriums, per CNN.

Trump visits NYC but opts out of official ceremony on 20th anniversary of 9/11

Former President Donald Trump struck a divisive tone as he visited New York City on Saturday, opting not to participate in the official ceremony at Ground Zero honoring the victims of the terrorist attacks.

Why it matters: The 45th president's remarks were in sharp contrast to the calls for unity from President Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and former President George W. Bush, who alluded to the Capitol insurrection and the dangers of homegrown extremists in his own remarks in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Harris, Bush preach unity at Flight 93 memorial, 20 years on from attacks

Vice President Kamala Harris joined former President George W. Bush at a ceremony on Saturday to honor the lives lost 20 years ago on United Airlines Flight 93.

Driving the news: The vice president and the 43rd president devoted much of their remarks to remembering the unity that brought Americans together after the 9/11 attacks.

The next few weeks will be crucial to enacting President Biden's agenda — and determining how Democrats perform in next year's midterms.

Driving the news: The Senate's back from recess starting Monday, and deadlines over everything from infrastructure to a government shutdown to the U.S. debt ceiling are staring lawmakers in the face. These are creating tests for the president and his bare congressional majority as Democrats try to hang on.
