According to reports from those who worked closely with the highly visible civil rights activist, he was still for filling his duties until the end from a hospice bed.

Elijah Cummings most recently known for his passionate tongue lashing given for the conditions the children of immigrants were being given while being held in poorly conditioned camps.  Cummings a true fighter for the rights of all unfortunately was not respected by President Donald Trump as he made news later in the summer for making disparaging comments about Cummings and the city of Baltimore that Elijah Cummings represented.
