Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Ultralight Smuggling Prevention Act Of 2010 September 23, 2010
John Tanner, D-TN
"The legislation is a commonsense, good policy approach to give border enforcement officials the tools they need to protect to the fullest extent and bring to justice those who attempt to smuggle illegal narcotics and contraband into our country, regardless of the means. It makes good sense that we do this bill now. Our prosecutors should be armed with the ability to apply the strongest deterrents."
Emergency Border Security Supplemental Appropriations, Fiscal Year 2010 August 10, 2010
Silvestre Reyes, D-TX
"Increasing staffing of our CBP Officers at land ports of entry is critical both to expedite the flow of trade and commerce and more effectively screen out illicit drugs, weapons, human smugglers, and any other potential criminals. It would also give us greater ability to conduct southbound checks so that we can also curb the supply of arms, illegal narcotics and cash going into Mexico and fueling violence there."
Emergency Border Security Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2010 July 28, 2010

Recognizing Military Working Dog Program March 2, 2010
Jim Marshall, D-GA
"Military working dogs contribute essential services to our Armed Forces through their capacity to detect explosives, illegal narcotics, and unwarranted persons beyond the capacity of any human patrol. They offer an invaluable ability for tracking missing people as well as fleeing suspects. Their support with sentry is crucial for the protection of our soldiers and civilians, and they are vital in so many different roles. Our military would not be as effective without them."
Service Members Home Ownership Tax Act Of 2009 December 9, 2009
Sam Brownback, R-KS
"Criminals have realized that the production of counterfeit drugs is twice as profitable as the trafficking of illegal narcotics and comes with significantly less criminal penalties compared to those handed out for illegal drugs."
