Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Syrian Refugees November 19, 2015
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Mr. President, it is clear that the American people are concerned about the administration‘s ability to properly vet thousands of individuals from Syria. More than half of our Nation’s Governors, Governors of both parties, have demonstrated their concern. Many Members in Congress, Members of both parties, have raised concerns as well."
American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act Of 2015 November 19, 2015
Steven Palazzo, R-MS
"Two years ago, Secretary of State John Kerry testified in front of the House Armed Services Committee about the need to arm Syrian rebels. I questioned this decision because we had no way of vetting these rebels. I told Secretary Kerry at the time: “America is just not buying what you are selling.” Two years later, the administration has shut down the arming of Syrian rebels because it was completely ineffective."
The Year In Review November 19, 2015
Garret Graves, R-LA
"Mr. Speaker, the United States military began active engagement in Syria back in September of 2014 when the United States-led coalition began its ongoing airstrike campaign, along with Bahrain, Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE. During this period, the Pentagon also administered a $500 million program to train and equip moderate Syrian opposition forces to target ISIS. This effort failed to train many soldiers or to yield the desired results; so the administration scrapped the effort."
Recognizing Ukraine November 19, 2015
Brad Sherman, D-CA
"Mr. Speaker, I urge my colleagues and the administration to redouble their efforts to help Ukraine protect its sovereignty by providing Ukraine with the necessary assistance to protect her freedom."
Reforming Cfpb Indirect Auto Financing Guidance Act November 19, 2015
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"On balance, however, it is important not to undercut the CFPB as the administration is working hard to protect it. Perennial Republican budget proposals attempt to limit or eliminate funding for the CFPB, and earlier this fall the House Financial Services Committee passed legislation that would replace the CFPB with a politically appointed committee."
