Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Dapa And Sophie April 20, 2016
Janice Hahn, D-CA
"I could not be more proud of Sophie. But a 6-year-old girl, however courageous she may be, should not have to come all the way to Washington, D.C., to advocate for fixing the broken immigration system. That is our job."
American Prosperity Agenda April 19, 2016
Scott Peters, D-CA
"Those include New Democrat priorities like tax reform, responsible Federal budgeting, simplifying Federal regulation, investing in infrastructure and research, and fixing our broken immigration system."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 1206, No Hires For The Delinquent Irs Act, And Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 4885, Irs Oversight While Eliminating Spending (Owes) Act Of 2016 April 19, 2016
Alcee Hastings, D-FL
"Here again, we have a similar example as to what we have going on here. Rather than addressing a real crisis, we are addressing matters that are going nowhere fast. We are not taking steps to ensure that men and women are paid the same for the same work. We are not working to reform our criminal justice system or our broken immigration system. In fact, under the leadership of this Republican majority, we are not doing much of anything here to solve any of the problems that are facing our country—a broken infrastructure that we have been begging about right here in the Nation’s Capital. Aside from all of the potholes, the Memorial Bridge may very well be shut down as well as thousands of bridges in this country; yet we cannot do the things that are vitally necessary that we should be doing in a bipartisan fashion."
America’S Small Business Tax Relief Act Of 2015 April 18, 2016
Mazie Hirono, D-HI
"I note, however, that Executive actions, important as they are, are not enough. The President himself has called on Congress to fix our broken immigration system so that 11 million undocumented people in our country can come out of the shadows and live and work openly."
Reforming The H-1B Visa Program April 14, 2016
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"Nonetheless, if they have changed their mind out on the campaign trail, we welcome that change of heart and welcome them to this debate. We must reform the H-1B visa program and fix other parts of our broken immigration system to protect American and immigrant workers. The solution is still comprehensive immigration reform. The time for action is now. Congress has avoided its responsibility for far too long."
