Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The National Labor Relations Board March 4, 2015
Mazie Hirono, D-HI
"The most recent estimates available show that between 14,500 and 17,500 people were trafficked into the United States in 2005. That is why I am working to enhance our ability to protect human trafficking victims seeking refuge in our country. Right now, many families are torn apart at the border because current law requires adult men to be transferred to a border location hundreds of miles away from where they were intercepted."
Progressive Caucus March 4, 2015
Raúl Grijalva, D-AZ
"In Arizona, there has been over close to 5,000 individuals that have lost their lives in the desert trying to cross to the United States, countless acts of violence—all generated by human traffickers, drug smugglers, and organized crime on both sides of the border."
Keystone Xl Pipeline Approval Act—Veto March 4, 2015
Lisa Murkowski, R-AK
"We made some good progress with this bill. If this vote is not successful, all of that is now off the table. We are not just talking about permitting a piece of pipe, the infrastructure that goes across the border. Keep in mind, folks, we also included some things that this body felt were important to advance, and that has all been vetoed by this President. It was wrong to veto this legislation."
Department Of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2015 March 3, 2015
Curt Clawson, R-FL
"This is America. Everybody matters, not just those that came over the border legally but those that have been here looking for jobs for long periods of time. I say we can do better. I say we can have a broader conversation. I say everybody matters."
