Richard Durbin, D-IL
"So the first thing they do is send us a spending bill that has what is known as a continuing resolution to tie the hands of the Department of Homeland Security when it comes to spending money to enforce our borders and stop illegal immigration. But that was not enough. Now we hear the opposition of the Republican side to filling the position that is responsible for enforcement of our borders, the position responsible for stopping illegal immigration. It is called ICE—Immigration and Customs Enforcement—which is part of the Department of Homeland Security. It was created in 2003. It is the largest investigative agency in the Department of Homeland Security. It is the second largest criminal investigative agency in the entire Federal Government. It has an annual budget of approximately $6 billion. It has more than 20,000 employees and more than 400 offices in the United States and 48 foreign countries. What is the responsibility of Immigration and Customs Enforcement? To enforce the border and to stop illegal immigration."

In Recognition Of Mr. Nguyen An Ha Of The Socialist Republic Of Vietnam December 1, 2014
Eni Faleomavaega, D-AS
"On behalf of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, Mr. Nguyen has spared no effort in strengthening U.S.-Vietnam relations. He has served his country and colleagues with distinction and honor. As Political Counselor, he worked side-by-side with His Excellency Nguyen Quoc Cuong, former Ambassador of Vietnam to the United States, and also with Dr. Luan Thuy Duong, former Minister at the Embassy of Vietnam to the United States, to promote Vietnam’s stance in calling for a peaceful resolution of disputes in the South China Sea and the East China Sea. Because of their tireless efforts and leadership, the U.S. House of Representatives finally passed for the first time ever a Resolution calling for such support. H. Res. 714, a Resolution I introduced in support of peaceful and collaborative resolution of maritime and jurisdictional disputes in the South China Sea and the East China Sea as provided by universally recognized principles of international law, was unanimously passed by the House on December 2, 2014."
