Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Immigration Policy August 5, 2014
Jeff Sessions, R-AL
"Thank you, Mr. President. The facts are plain, colleagues. The immigration policies of President Obama are having a devastating effect on the classical American goal of a fair and lawful system of immigration, one that serves our national interest. He has directed the Federal immigration officers not to enforce plain law. He meets privately with pro-amnesty, open borders, and special interest business groups and promises to take even more actions in the future to erase plain law. Unfortunately, our fine law enforcement officers are excluded from the discussion. I have asked that they be involved for years now, and the President has flatly refused."
Prohibitions Relating To Deferred Action For Aliens August 1, 2014
Steve King, R-IA
"Mr. Speaker, this just restores the constitutional authority of the United States Congress, and it says: President Obama, don’t continue to violate this Constitution. President Obama, when you waved your ink pen at us a week and a half ago and you said you were going to legalize 5 to 6 million people, it is unconstitutional."
Our Unconscionable National Debt August 1, 2014
Mike Coffman, R-CO
"Mr. Speaker, on January 20, 2009, the day President Obama took office, the national debt was $10,626,877,048,913.08."
Security And Humanitarian Support For The Christian Community In Iraq August 1, 2014
Trent Franks, R-AZ
"Mr. Speaker, last month, 55 of my colleagues and I sent a priority letter to President Obama urging him to actively prioritize security and humanitarian support for the Christian community in Iraq. We specifically warned him of the dangers and brutality of the terrorist group ISIS in Iraq who are now rampaging across Iraq and terrorizing the vulnerable Christian population."
Is Anybody Listening? August 1, 2014
Frank Wolf, R-VA
"Yet President Obama has said nothing."
