Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Comprehensive Immigration Reform April 2, 2014
Steve King, R-IA
"When anyone is interdicted, apprehended, coming across our border who is a person of interest from a nation of interest, they are turned over, as soon as possible, to the FBI. That act immediately closes the case as far as public discussion is concerned because now it is classified. So, if they are continually classifying the reports and any prosecutions and how we handle persons of interest from nations of interest, that means, Mr. Speaker, that we don’t know how many people have been caught coming into the United States with ill will towards us or suspicion of ill will towards us. That is classified."
Affordable Health Care November 12, 2013
John Garamendi, D-CA
"He came back about 2 months later with a report. Our reports are usually 2,000 or 3,000 pages. His was maybe less than 50. He said there are things that we can do at the Federal level to grow the American economy, to build the manufacturing sector of America. He called it manufacturers, and he said trade policy. We need a trade policy that protects American manufacturers against cheap imports coming into the United States, against those who would subsidize their businesses to the detriment of American businesses. He said trade policy. We need a trade policy that protects American manufacturing."
The Continued Shutdown Of The Federal Government By House Republicans October 10, 2013
Gerald Connolly, D-VA
"This affects every American. Sometimes we are not aware of how interwoven Federal services are in our lives. We count on and take for granted that the Federal Government is protecting us from diseases. There is research being done on a crash basis to make sure that antibiotic-resistant infections don’t kill us and our children. It is a real threat. Those researchers, furloughed. Protecting illnesses and invasive species, including deadly species, from coming into the United States, at risk because the men and women who are charged with that mission are furloughed."
The Rule Of Law July 24, 2013
Michele Bachmann, R-MN
"And so if we allow the DREAM Act, which is three-fourths of the way amnesty, which is backdoor amnesty, for all practical purposes full-on amnesty, if we allow that, we are bringing into this country legally tens of millions of individuals who would be taking out of the Treasury at the worst possible time—when we have pensions to pay, when we have health care to pay, when we have education to pay for, police, fire protection. And the estimate is that we’re looking at over $30,000 a year in annual subsidy, direct payout for the average illegal alien that’s coming into the United States."
Department Of Defense Appropriations Act, 2014 July 23, 2013
Trent Franks, R-AZ
"One nuclear armed missile coming into the United States could ruin our whole day. I am astonished sometimes at the lack of insight to this very real problem."
