Entry Title Date
Immigration Reform April 8, 2014
Michael Bennet, D-CO
"I am going to read the list. I was so blown away by the list that I asked one of the people from the INS who was there to give me what is called the oath ceremony nationality report from which they read the names of the countries. It is an astonishing list. Here are the countries these folks are from: China, the People’s Republic of China, Colombia, Haiti, Jamaica, Malaysia, Mexico, Nicaragua, the Philippines, South Korea, Togo, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom—12 different countries."
Let’S Do For The Next Generation What The Last Generation Did For Us April 4, 2014
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"Steve King, a few others, and I went out to the marine memorial, and we opened up that memorial. We checked out their other days and made sure that that was accessible. One day, it turned out there was a bus of World War II veterans that had come out there. There was a big, plastic barricade shaped like the concrete barricades. This was plastic, and it was filled with water, a wooden barricade there. And that bus of World War II veterans—many of them that had fought in the Philippines, that had been to the top of the mountain and seen that flag be planted up there—their bus ran over that barricade."
Protecting Access To Medicare Act Of 2014 March 31, 2014
Jeff Sessions, R-AL
"More than 7 long years later, on February 12, 1973, Denton would be freed as part of “Operation Homecoming” following the signing of the Paris Peace Accords. He was the senior officer of the first planeload of released POWs at Clark Air Base in the Philippines. Denton brought tears to the eyes of the entire Nation at that moment as he walked from the plane. It was reported that he wasn’t told to make any official remarks or make a speech, but he got off the plane and these were his powerful words:"
Nomination Of Christopher Reid Cooper To Be U.S. District Judge For The District Of Columbia March 26, 2014
Kelly Ayotte, R-NH
"In addition, what will the Chinese do? In the Senkaku Islands they have been very aggressive toward the territory of not only the Japanese but also the Philippines, the Vietnamese, and they are watching. They are watching whether we care whether Russia invades another country, whether we care that Vladimir Putin is pushing the Ukrainian people around."
Support For The Sovereignty, Integrity, Democracy, And Economic Stability Of Ukraine Act Of 2014—Motion To Proceed March 25, 2014
Marco Rubio, R-FL
"I took a trip in February to Asia. I visited Japan and the Philippines and South Korea. You know what the No. 1 fear in that region is. That China has similar claims to Russia. They claim all sorts of pieces of territory and of oceans that belong to them. They claim it belonged to them 1,000 years ago and should belong to them now. They have taken a different tack, but the point is, if we now live in a world where a country can make territorial claims and then simply act on them without any repercussions from the international community, then I think the 21st century is starting to look more and more like the early 20th century, a time that subjected the world to two devastating World Wars."
