Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Strengthen The Economy September 17, 2014
Brad Schneider, D-IL
"Throughout these visits, I have heard several recurring themes, including concerns about our growing skills gap, our aging infrastructure, the need to reform our broken immigration system, and the need to modernize our Tax Code to successfully compete in a global economy."
Legislative Session September 17, 2014
John Cornyn, R-TX
"Immigration continues to be among the most pressing issues we face, especially given this year’s record surge of unaccompanied children coming from Central America and pouring across our southwest border. We understand that one of America’s top priorities is to make sure our laws are being enforced and our border is secure. We share that priority and we will keep advocating the necessary reforms, along with other reforms, to fix our broken immigration system."
The Do-Nothing Congress September 10, 2014
G. Butterfield, D-NC
"For the past 2 years, Democrats have repeatedly called on the Republicans to tackle a pro-jobs, pro-middle class agenda. Democrats have consistently put forth proposals that would grow jobs, provide workers with a living wage, and fix our broken immigration system. Instead of working with Democrats to bring about the change supported by the majority of Americans, Republicans have refused to act."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 3522, Employee Health Care Protection Act Of 2014 September 10, 2014
Jared Polis, D-CO
"Instead of focusing on rolling back protections for the benefits of millions of Americans for the 53rd time, this House should get back to the work of focusing on real problems, like the need to overhaul our broken immigration system and replace it with one that works for our country. Instead of solving immigration problems that are facing our Nation, the House continues to vote on bills that take our country backwards."
U.S. Economy September 10, 2014
Tony Cardenas, D-CA
"We have a broken immigration system, and one bill can fix that. We have a broken system in this country, and that one bill will put $900 billion toward deficit reduction for America. That one bill will unleash our economy and create hundreds of thousands of opportunities for Americans to go back to work."
