Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
American Manufacturing Competitiveness Act Of 2016 April 27, 2016
Erik Paulsen, R-MN
"Since the last MTB package expired in 2012, we have seen $748 million in additional taxes at the border for American manufacturers every year."
Communities Organized For Public Service (C.O.P.S.) April 27, 2016
Joaquin Castro, D-TX

Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 April 27, 2016
John Cornyn, R-TX
"Mexico is critical to our joint goals of countering and interdicting illegal substances entering the United States from across the border. We know the supply is huge, and unfortunately the demand in the United States is huge, and our Mexican friends always remind us of that. Every time we are critical of them, they say: Well, if it weren’t for the demand in the United States, the supply wouldn’t be there. They have a point."
Promoting Resilience And Efficiency In Preparing For Attacks And Responding To Emergencies Act April 26, 2016
Martha McSally, R-AZ
"The PREPARE Act makes a number of improvements to the operations at the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Office of Health Affairs, and Office of Emergency Communications. The bill authorizes, for the first time, Operation Stonegarden, which provides grants to law enforcement agencies along the border to enhance border security. These funds are vital to the security of border communities, like the ones in my district in southern Arizona."
Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Continued April 26, 2016
Jeff Flake, R-AZ
"The Arizona Republic notes that “the Arizona Department of Transportation recently signed a memorandum of understanding to study ways to improve the trade corridor that spans the border.” Arizona alone shares six ports of entry with Mexico, and Phoenix’s Sky Harbor Airport facilitates 122 flights a week to and from Mexico. All of this cooperation requires a close partnership between our two countries. The longer the United States goes without having an Ambassador to Mexico, the greater that partnership will suffer."
