Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Executive Session June 27, 2016
Patrick Leahy, D-VT
"It was the inaction of Republicans in Congress that led the President to take sensible action to improve our broken immigration system. After blocking immigration reform, Republican obstruction continued in the Senate with the unprecedented refusal to consider the nomination of Chief Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court. This left a hobbled Court of eight to consider this crucial immigration case."
Ed Pastor Post Office June 21, 2016
Ruben Gallego, D-AZ
"Throughout his career, Congressman Pastor was a passionate advocate for fixing our broken immigration system, for investing in our Nation’s transportation infrastructure, and for protecting the civil rights of every American. Perhaps, even more importantly, as President Obama noted, Congressman Pastor served as a mentor and as a role model to young Latinos and Latinas throughout Arizona and our country. He was supported in this groundbreaking work by his loving wife, Verma. Congressman Pastor retired in 2014, and he remains a beloved and respected figure in the city of Phoenix."
Asian Pacific American Heritage Month May 12, 2016
Janice Hahn, D-CA
"As educators, activists, artists, small business owners, servicemen and -women, and elected officials, Asian American and Pacific Islanders have added so much to this Nation. They are a reminder that diversity continues to be America’s greatest strength. It is why I will continue to fight to fix our broken immigration system, to expand opportunities for people of all backgrounds, and to combat discrimination wherever it occurs."
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."
