Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Fighting Terrorism June 27, 2016
John Cornyn, R-TX
"Madam President, on another matter, the Senate has been discussing the need to respond to terrorist threats within our own borders. To recap, this isn’t about people traveling from the United States to the Middle East and returning or people coming from the Middle East to the United States. It is about that, but primarily what we are worried about in Orlando is the radicalization of an American citizen by propaganda, poisonous propaganda being issued by the Islamic State, and that falls in a fertile field with particularly susceptible individuals like the shooter in Orlando."
Recognizing The Protect America Act June 24, 2016
Michael Fitzpatrick, R-PA
"On June 12, 2016 we watched in horror as a lone terrorist, pledging allegiance to ISIS, carried out the nation’s worst terror attack since September 11, 2001. As we continue to grieve and pray for those devastated by this attack, we must redouble our efforts and be clear in our resolve to protect our nation and her citizens from the radical Islamic terrorism that continues to target us."
Commerce, Justice, Science, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Continued June 23, 2016
Ron Johnson, R-WI
"Mr. President, I would like to ask all of my colleagues a simple question: How many more constitutional rights are we going to give up in response to Islamic terror?"
Commerce, Justice, Science, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 June 23, 2016
Thom Tillis, R-NC
"The reason for this is that his own administration is at odds with what he says publicly. He doesn’t want to discuss his own party; he doesn’t want to discuss the threat of radical Islamic terror."
Islamic Terrorist Global Threat June 21, 2016
Joe Wilson, R-SC
"Mr. Speaker, the Associated Press reported Friday the global reach of the Islamic State. This clearly clarifies we are in a global war on terrorism, confirming we must defeat Islamic terrorists overseas or they will murder here again, as they did in Orlando and San Bernardino."
