Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Resettlement Accountability National Security Act Of 2015 October 28, 2015
Brian Babin, R-TX
"The five wealthiest countries on the Arabian Peninsula—Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, and Bahrain—have not taken in a single refugee that we know of."
Suspension Of Authority To Waive, Suspend, Reduce, Provide Relief From, Or Otherwise Limit The Application Of Sanctions Pursuant To An Agreement Related To The Nuclear Program Of Iran September 11, 2015
Adam Kinzinger, R-IL
"South Korea and the United Arab Emirates have asked us for the right to enrich or reprocess uranium—friends of the United States—and we told them no because of our dedication to keeping nuclear weapons out of the wrong hands. So we denied our best friends the right to enrich uranium, and we are getting ready to give it to our worst enemy. This deal will, in effect, end the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty for the world, because we can never deny anybody the right to enrich uranium in the future."
National Security, The Rule Of Law, And Planned Parenthood Videos July 28, 2015
Steve King, R-IA
"And I am speaking of countries like Egypt; the United Arab Emirates, for example; Jordan, to a lesser degree. But they are natural allies to the United States. They are natural allies. In fact, they are allies to Israel today. They have been attacking our Islamist enemies in that part of the world."
The People’S Night June 15, 2015
Ken Buck, R-CO
"These contributions raised questions about Secretary Clinton’s independence and ethical judgment. But when some of the $1 million donations in question came from nations like Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, and Oman, it raises concerns about whether these nations were hoping to gain better diplomatic ties to the United States through sizable donations to the Clinton Foundation. When the Secretary of State is playing fast and loose with the rule of law, even ignoring a memorandum of understanding with the White House regarding a questionable donation from the Algerian Government, it is extremely difficult to trust her judgment or her word when she claims not to have broken any laws."
Highway Trust Fund May 13, 2015
Frank Pallone, D-NJ
"Ever since Republicans took control of the House in January 2011, they have shown neglect and indifference towards the Nation’s infrastructure needs. In fact, since Republicans assumed the majority in January 2011, the Republican-led Ways and Means Committee has not held a single hearing on financing options for the highway trust fund. All this, despite the U.S. being ranked 16th in quality of infrastructure, behind Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates, Japan, and others, according to the World Economic Forum; and the country received a D-plus from civil engineers for our infrastructure nationwide."
