Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Immigration July 21, 2014
John Cornyn, R-TX
"So I know Secretary Johnson of the Department of Homeland Security understands the problem, although the President has a political problem. Many of the President’s most ardent supporters are saying: We hope the President will just request money, but in the end we hope he will go even further with the deferred action Executive order that he issued in 2012 for the so-called DREAMers. Those are kids who obviously came into the United States at a young age with their parents but are boxed in; while they can get an education, they cannot get a job."
Legislative Session July 21, 2014
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"Is this a frivolous issue we are talking about here? The 2012 Urban Mobility Report from Texas A&M said the financial cost of traffic congestion in 2011 was $121 billion, or about $818 per commuter. Of that total, about $27 billion was wasted time and diesel fuel from trucks moving goods on the system."
Bring Jobs Home Act—Motion To Proceed July 21, 2014
Harry Reid, D-NV
"Congressional Republicans are suggesting that the thousands of young migrants have come to America as a result of President Obama’s 2012 deferred action plan. They are saying that is the reason for all of this trouble. But that is nonsense. This article I held up—a long article—does not mention a word from anybody she interviewed that they are coming because of deferred action. They are coming because of fathers being robbed and murdered by gangs while they are working as security officers and the other vile things that are happening to human beings."
Executive Actions July 21, 2014
Jeff Sessions, R-AL
"He gave quiet credence to recommendations from La Raza and other immigration groups that between 5 million to 6 million adult illegal immigrants could be spared deportation under a similar form of deferred adjudication he ordered for the so- called Dreamers in June 2012."
Acknowledging Keith Haske July 17, 2014
Dan Benishek, R-MI
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today in support of Keith Haske, a storied basketball coach and school administrator from Northern Michigan who has recently been diagnosed with throat cancer. Mr. Haske served as a head varsity boys’ basketball coach in Northern Michigan since moving to the area in 1998. He initially coached at Charlevoix High School, where he compiled a tremendous record of 239 wins and just 78 losses. In these thirteen years he also amassed 10 district titles, 6 regional titles, 4 semi-final appearances, and 2 state runner-up titles. On top of that, he served as coach for the varsity girls program from 2004 to 2006, guiding them to a state title berth of their own. Following his time at Charlevoix, Keith became the varsity boys coach at Traverse City St. Francis where he continues to find success. He recently led the team to a state runner up title in 2012. It must be noted that as a coach Keith’s impact transcends the wins and awards his teams have amassed over the years. The young women and men he has mentored over the years have looked to him for leadership and guidance, and his impact is seen all over the Northern Michigan community. As Mr. Haske moves forward on a path to recovery, I would also like to send a heartfelt “thank you” and best wishes on behalf of the citizens of Northern Michigan to the Haske family— Barb, Ty, and Chelsey."
