Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Immigration Policy August 5, 2014
Jeff Sessions, R-AL
"If the President persists in his plan, anyone ICE officers come into contact with will simply assert protections and eligibility under this new Executive action. Now, get this. So we are going to give amnesty to 5 million or 6 million people. Well, if there are 11 million, 12 million people here today, what happens to the other 5 million to 6 million? If any ICE officer comes into contact with them, those individuals will assert they are entitled to protections and eligibility under the new Executive action. New illegal immigrants will flood across, as they did after the President’s Executive amnesty for people under the age of 30 because they will believe—correctly, it appears to me—that if they can get into the country unlawfully, they will never be deported. They will wait until the President—this President or the next President or some other President— gives them work privileges in the United States to take jobs that Americans need to be doing at a time of extraordinarily high unemployment, at a time when we have the lowest workplace participation rate since the 1970s. Illegal immigrants won’t even have to wait for Congress to pass amnesty if this goes through."
All-Of-The-Above” Energy Approach August 1, 2014
Tom Reed, R-NY
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to discuss the importance of an “all-of-the-above” energy approach for our nation’s future. By taking this fair and reasonable approach to domestic energy exploration and production, we can properly care for the energy needs of families and businesses in New York, and across the country, while promoting American jobs, boosting national security and taking care of the environment."
Prohibitions Relating To Deferred Action For Aliens August 1, 2014
Andy Barr, R-KY
"I strongly urge the Senate and President Obama to do their jobs, stop trying to score political points, listen to the American people, pass this bill, and join the House in solving this very important problem."
Introduction Of The Startup Act Of 2014 August 1, 2014
Krysten Sinema, D-AZ
"Mr. Speaker, today I, along with Mr. Valadao of California, introduced the bipartisan Startup Act of 2014. The Startup Act provides immigrant entrepreneurs and foreign graduates of U.S. universities with the opportunity to appeal and extend their visa by two years on the condition that they secure financing from a U.S. investor and demonstrate the ability to create jobs and bolster the U.S. economy."
Export-Import Bank Reauthorization August 1, 2014
Krysten Sinema, D-AZ
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today in support of the reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank because helping Arizona businesses expand their manufacturing capacity and exporting ability creates jobs and grows our economy."
