Entry Title Date
Reforming The Eb-5 Regional Center Program November 19, 2015
Patrick Leahy, D-VT
"Mr. President, I have championed the EB-5 Regional Center Program for many years. I have done so because I have seen its ability to generate investment and create jobs in distressed communities. But the program is facing some pressing challenges. Reports of rampant fraud and abuse raise serious concerns and threaten to cripple the program’s integrity. The incentives Congress established to invest in high unemployment and rural communities are also routinely abused, undermining a core objective of the program—to spur growth and create jobs in underserved areas. The Regional Center Program is set to expire on December 11. It should be reauthorized, but we should not extend it blindly. There is bipartisan consensus that the program is in dire need of reform, and we cannot squander this opportunity."
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 November 19, 2015
Mazie Hirono, D-HI
"Since its creation in 2012, DACA has given nearly 700,000 undocumented young people the opportunity to pursue their dreams through education and jobs. Sixty percent of DACA recipients have been able to find new jobs, contributing to our tax base and our economy. Experts estimate that DACA recipients will contribute $230 billion to our GDP over the next decade."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions November 19, 2015
Jeanne Shaheen, D-NH
"So we took that model—a U.S. enterprise fund—and focused on Bosnia-Herzegovina, and this is the legislation that we are going to be introducing. I don’t know how Senator Wicker feels about it, but I think this offers real opportunity to Bosnia because we can leverage a very small amount of public resources through the private sector, through other local funds that might be available in Bosnia, and see real progress on the economic front that will help create jobs that will help those young people stay in the country and build a strong country."
The Year In Review November 19, 2015
Garret Graves, R-LA
"Why are we not being energy self-sufficient and utilizing our resources here, promoting jobs here?"
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 4038, American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act Of 2015 November 19, 2015
Doug Collins, R-GA
"In fact, when the President spoke at the G-20 Summit press conference, here is what he mentioned before addressing the terrorist attacks in Paris: the beauty of Turkey; the hospitality of the Turkish people; his practice of the Turkish language; the need to grow the global economy; the need to create jobs; rising inequality in the world; cyber theft; and oh, yes, global climate talks."
