Entry Title Date
Our Southern Border And Immigration Reform February 10, 2015
Thomas Carper, D-DE
"Last year I am told almost as many Mexicans were going back into Mexico from the United States as are coming into the United States from Mexico. The origin of the illegal immigration is Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador. People say: Why would anybody allow their 7-, 8-, 9-, 10-year-old daughter or son to literally leave in the arms of a coyote on a train—not on a passenger train but on the top of a train—and try to travel 1,500 miles with all kinds of threats to their life and limb? Why would anybody do that?"
Unconstitutional Actions By President Obama December 2, 2014
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"If the drug cartels are getting promises from people coming into the United States illegally that they will work off the rest of the money, then you can bet the drug cartels are going to see that they do."
American Jobs November 19, 2014
Tim Ryan, D-OH
"That is when we get it right, when we level the playing field, when we put the tariffs on their dumped products coming into the United States. That, to me, is what this is all about."
A Historical Assessment July 16, 2014
Steve King, R-IA
"And this gaping hole that we have in our border in the McAllen sector of the Texas border, where we now have 57,000 unaccompanied children who have come into the United States—many of them hustled across 2,500 miles or more from El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala through Mexico, and there is a significant number yet from Mexico coming into the United States—these unaccompanied minors are hauled up here by coyotes who may live in those communities and recruit these kids."
Legislative Session July 15, 2014
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"But now we face a challenge because the number of children unaccompanied coming into the United States is reaching recordbreaking proportions."
