Entry Title Date
Negotiations Between Colombia And The Farc March 15, 2016
Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-FL
"Mr. Speaker, Cuba has no interest in a peaceful resolution to the conflict in Colombia. The Castro regime is only interested in leveraging a strengthened and legitimized FARC as a dominant player in Colombia."
Launch Of The Bipartisan Cuba Working Group December 17, 2015
Sam Farr, D-CA
"Mr. Speaker, what I am very excited about, frankly, is that Cuba has hosted probably one of the most important discussions going on in the world, and that is how to end the longest revolutionary war, the best financed revolutionary war in the history of the world, which is the FARC, supported by all the drugs in Colombia; and the Colombian Government and the FARC rebels have been sitting down in Cuba and working out a very complicated “how do we end a war,” “how do we get you back into civil society,” “how do we stop the violence.”"
Nominations November 17, 2015
Harry Reid, D-NV
"He is an American success story. He was born in Colombia and came to the United States as a toddler. In 1993 he became a U.S. citizen. He is eminently qualified, having graduated from the University of Pennsylvania—one of the Ivy League schools—and Tulane University Law School. He worked as a public defender and started his own practice focusing on civil rights and criminal defense issues. Since 2013 he has served with distinction as a district judge in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. The Senate confirmed him in his current judge position unanimously."
Tribute To Carolyn Lucile Mcdonald Shipp November 9, 2015
Orrin Hatch, R-UT
"As she raised her family, Carolyn held a number of stake and ward leadership positions in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, including Relief Society president and Young Women’s president. Her faith has always been an integral part of Carolyn’s life. For many years, Carolyn and Royal have served in the Bella Vista Spanish Ward, where they are dearly loved. Carolyn also served with Royal as area humanitarian missionaries in Colombia and Venezuela. Carolyn continues her service as a worker in the Washington, DC, temple."
The Progressive Caucus October 8, 2015
Mark Pocan, D-WI
"In fact, 4 years ago, when we passed the Colombia Free Trade Agreement, to the letter of the law the Colombian Government has put the provisions within Colombian law and not one bit of that has actually been implemented and over 100 labor leaders in the last 4 years have been killed just in Colombia."
