Entry Title Date
Celebrating Axalta’S 150Th Anniversary July 15, 2016
Robert Goodlatte, R-VA
"In Virginia, Axalta’s Front Royal Plant is celebrating 35 years of operation. The Front Royal Plant, located near the border between the Sixth and Tenth Congressional Districts, employs many of our constituents and is a valued member of the community."
United States V. Texas Supreme Court Decision June 23, 2016
Jeff Sessions, R-AL
"Last month, the head of the National Border Patrol Council testified before the Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, which I chair, that for every alien apprehended at the border by the U.S. Border Patrol, we could assume at least one evaded detection. He said they are catching half of the people who enter, and they apprehended more than 300,000 illegally into the country last year."
Gun Violence June 21, 2016
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"There is no excuse for what is going on now in Northern Indiana. Gun shows take place there regularly. Guns are sold in volume out of those gun shows with no background checks on the buyers. So the gangbangers of Chicago and the others head over to Northern Indiana—it is just across the border—fill up their trunks with guns and bring them into the city of Chicago."
June 12, 1987: Ronald Reagan Addresses President Mikhail Gorbachev June 13, 2016
Ted Poe, R-TX
"It was then that Soviet Premier Kruschchev closed the border between East and West Berlin for good. In 1961 the Berlin Wall officially came into existence. It stood 12 feet tall and 4 feet wide until the fall of communism. During that time, the only way to cross the border was through one of three checkpoints: Alpha, Bravo, and Charlie. But travelers were rarely allowed to cross the border."
National Defense Authorization Bill June 10, 2016
Susan Collins, R-ME
"The bill also provides the resources necessary to help our allies and partners around the world. I am pleased it would authorize $50 million for the U.S.-Israel Anti-Tunneling Cooperation Program. The terrorist organization Hamas continues to construct tunnels from Gaza to Israel, which have been used by terrorists to sneak across the border and carry out attacks on Israeli citizens."
