Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 3009, Enforce The Law For Sanctuary Cities Act July 23, 2015
Jared Polis, D-CO
"It is time for this body to fix our broken immigration system to keep Americans safe. How many other victims like Kathryn Steinle need to make the ultimate sacrifice—or the countless other Americans who are victims of other kinds of crime—at the hands of immigrant felons? It will be until this body chooses to fix our broken immigration system and restore the rule of law."
Sanctuary Cities July 23, 2015
Tony Cardenas, D-CA
"The safety of our families should not be a pawn to please Donald Trump. Republicans should work to fix our broken immigration system that will make our neighborhoods safer and supercharge our economy."
Enforce The Law For Sanctuary Cities Act July 23, 2015
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"Instead of pushing these failed policies, we need to come together and pass bipartisan legislation to address our broken immigration system. I urge my colleagues to oppose this bill."
Immigration Reform July 22, 2015
Ruben Gallego, D-AZ
"Mr. Speaker, this is nothing but an effort to cover for the House Republican leadership’s failure to bring a comprehensive immigration reform bill to the floor that would actually fix our broken immigration system. "
3Rd Anniversary Of Daca Program June 23, 2015
Dianne Feinstein, D-CA
"The Senate passed the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act with a strong bipartisan majority, 68 to 32. This bill would have provided a pathway to citizenship for DACA grantees and others similarly situated. But the House failed to act, and so here we are today without comprehensive immigration reform. Although we have not yet succeeded in fixing our broken immigration system through congressional action, at least the DACA Program provides some temporary reprieve for these young immigrants so that they do not live in constant fear of deportation."
