Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Sonoran Corridor June 24, 2015
Martha McSally, R-AZ
"Southern Arizona already plays a vital role in our Nation’s trade partnership with Mexico through its proximity to the border and key interstate systems, but more can be done to take advantage of these invaluable assets."
Department Of Homeland Security Interoperable Communications Act June 23, 2015
Martha McSally, R-AZ
"In response to the findings of this inspector general’s report, I joined Chairman McCaul and Oversight and Management Efficiency Subcommittee Chairman Perry in requesting a review of this issue by the Government Accountability Office. Their report, which was released in March, found that nearly 3 years after the inspector general’s report, communications problems persist in the Department and among its components. In particular, Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Customs Enforcement personnel reported to the GAO that the lack of interoperability in some cases along the border resulted in missed apprehensions and jeopardized agent safety."
3Rd Anniversary Of Daca Program June 23, 2015
Dianne Feinstein, D-CA
"The Senate passed the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act with a strong bipartisan majority, 68 to 32. This bill would have provided a pathway to citizenship for DACA grantees and others similarly situated. But the House failed to act, and so here we are today without comprehensive immigration reform. Although we have not yet succeeded in fixing our broken immigration system through congressional action, at least the DACA Program provides some temporary reprieve for these young immigrants so that they do not live in constant fear of deportation."
Stop Trade Adjustment Assistance And Save America’S Economy June 12, 2015
Peter DeFazio, D-OR
"First, there was NAFTA. They told us it would create hundreds of thousands of jobs. Unfortunately, they neglected to say they would be south of the border, and they would be at the expense of American workers."
America Gives More Act Of 2015 June 12, 2015
Tim Ryan, D-OH
"Adelphi factory in Warren, Ohio, had 13,000 workers. NAFTA passed; they moved over the border and ship their products back to the United States. We will be lucky if there are even 2,000 workers there. An auto plant had 16,000 workers, General Motors. Now, they are down to 3,000-4,000 because of the trade agreements."
