Billy Long, R-MO
"After gaining citizenship, Boer served two years in the U.S. Army. He spent time in Fort Leonard Wood, Fort Smith, Fort Devens, Puerto Rico, and West Point.

Northern Border Security Review Act October 28, 2015
John Katko, R-NY
"As a former Federal prosecutor on both the northern border in New York and the southern border in El Paso, Texas, not to mention my time as a Federal prosecutor on the island of Puerto Rico, I have seen firsthand the challenges our Nation faces to counter violent drug trafficking organizations, organized crime syndicates, and human trafficking that transit across our Nation’s border."
Recognizing The Congregacion Mita Church On Its 75Th Anniversary October 23, 2015
Alan Grayson, D-FL
"The Congregacion Mita Church was founded in 1940 in the town of Arecibo, Puerto Rico, by Juanita “Mita” Garcia Peraza. At a time when women were not allowed to officiate in church, Juanita became a trailblazer, founding her congregation with a message of love, freedom, and unity."
Donald Trump Hosting “Saturday Night Live” October 21, 2015
Luis Gutierrez, D-IL
"Let’s be clear: the goodwill that corporate America earned from dumping Trump didn’t just come from the Mexican-American community. No, when Trump says Mexicans are murderers, rapists, and drug dealers, Puerto Rico knows he is talking about us, too, and Colombians and Salvadorans, and pretty much everyone in the Latino community."
Adaptation To Changing Crude Oil Markets October 9, 2015
Duncan Hunter, R-CA
"Mr. Chairman, last Thursday was a tragic day for the American maritime community and America. El Faro, an American flagship en route to Puerto Rico, was lost in Hurricane Joaquin and, with it, its 33 crew, including 28 Americans."
