Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Trafficking Prevention In Foreign Affairs Contracting Act February 1, 2016
Ed Royce, R-CA
"A worker from the Philippines performing janitorial services for our Embassy in Saudi Arabia should not be at risk of shakedowns from unscrupulous or violent operators."
Energy Policy Modernization Act Of 2015 February 1, 2016
Jeff Sessions, R-AL
"We need better trade deals. We don’t need to enter into trade deals that don’t protect the legitimate interest of American workers and American manufacturers. Our trading partners, good countries, good people—Japan, South Korea, Philippines, and others—are tough trading partners. They are mercantilists. They are not free traders, really. They are out to maximize their exports, and the export market they lust after the most is the U.S. market. That is where they want to export their products and bring home American dollars. We haven’t done a good job of defending our interests."
In Remembrance Of Ed Fendig, Jr. December 17, 2015
Buddy Carter, R-GA
"Through his late teens and 20s, he served in the Navy in the Philippines and later in the Georgia Air National Guard in Casablanca. Between services, he played football on scholarship at the University of Georgia. Go Dawgs."
End Modern Slavery Initiative Act December 17, 2015
Bob Corker, R-TN
"Modern slavery comes in many forms and it preys on women and children the most. This brutal, multibillion-dollar industry deprives individuals of their basic human rights. Rather than holding a schoolbook, children in India are stacking bricks. Rather than sitting in a classroom, young girls in the Philippines are sitting in brothels forced into sexual servitude. In Ghana, young boys are forced into a life of slavery on fishing boats, and worldwide men and women hoping only to better the lives of their families are stripped of their passports and trafficked for labor."
Presidential Strategy To Defeat Isil December 17, 2015
John McCain, R-AZ
"I also want to point out that the President has a unique and really dishonest approach to those of us who have said for a long time that we have to have more involvement and predicted what would happen. Unfortunately, we have been wrong by saying, yes, the “popoffs”—as he called us in a speech from the Philippines—want to send hundreds of thousands of troops. That is a total falsehood. I will repeat again what we have been asking for for years, and that is another 5,000 or so Americans on the ground in Iraq and a multinational force led by the Sunni Arab countries with European participation—I would hope that people like the French would join in a—about 10,000 of 100,000-person force to go to Raqqa and take them out. As long as Raqqa exists, they will be able to export this evil throughout the world, including to the United States of America. There is no plan by this administration to retake Raqqa. There is no strategy, and that is, indeed, shameful."
