Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Immigration Reform November 19, 2014
Charles Schumer, D-NY
"The dithering and dawdling on the House side is particularly perplexing because our bill would achieve so many goals the Republicans claim are part of their agenda. It would secure the border, create jobs, add economic growth, and cut the deficit."
The 43 Murdered Mexican Students November 19, 2014
Filemon Vela, D-TX
"The crises of human smuggling, drug smuggling, and illegal migration do not begin or end at the border. Resolving these matters requires that we address issues of economic development and cartel violence in Mexico and that we address the demand for narcotics in the United States, along with eliminating the presence of cartels in an estimated 1,000 U.S. cities."
Immigration November 19, 2014
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"As the President announces making millions of more people who have come illegally eligible to take American citizens’ jobs in the next 2 days, I hope that our Congress on both sides of the aisle will do what is right and say, “Wait a minute. Secure the border, Mr. President. That is what is exclusively within your control.”"
Immigration Reform November 19, 2014
Debbie Stabenow, D-MI
"We know how to do that in the Senate on immigration as well because a whole different group of people across the aisle sat down with very different ideas. How do we strengthen the border? How do we have a system that works for agriculture and business? How do we create a pathway of earning their citizenship in this country? People worked in a very complicated situation, they worked together, and ultimately, after a lot of amendments and slogging it through on the floor, just as we did on the farm bill, we achieved that. We achieved that. We achieved that 510 days ago."
The Dedication Of A Bust Of Vaclav Havel In The United States Capitol November 19, 2014
Steny Hoyer, D-MD
"This has been on full display over the past year in Ukraine, where one year ago courageous protesters gathered in Kiev’s Maidan Square to reject Putin’s attempts to pull their country closer into Russia’s orbit and away from greater democracy and economic opportunity. The Maidan protests and the regime’s violent response to them ushered in a new beginning for Ukrainian democracy, with free and fair elections held earlier this year. Unwilling to accept the decision the Ukrainian people have made about the future they want for their own nation, Putin’s Russia has violated Ukraine’s sovereignty by illegally annexing Crimea as well as sending troops and equipment across the border into southeastern Ukraine, much as it has done in the nation of Georgia."
