Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Immigration Policy August 5, 2014
Jeff Sessions, R-AL
"If you get past the Border Patrol at the border and somehow get to the interior of this country, you are also allowed to stay under President Obama’s policies, which are not to deport anybody unless they have been arrested for a serious crime, maybe even limited to a serious felony."
Waiving Requirement Of Clause 6(A) Of Rule Xiii With Respect To Consideration Of Certain Resolutions Reported From The Committee On Rules, And Providing For Consideration Of Motions To Suspend The… August 1, 2014
Louise Slaughter, D-NY
"Mr. Speaker, I ask unanimous consent to bring up H.R. 15, a bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform bill to properly address the humanitarian crisis at the border."
Prohibitions Relating To Deferred Action For Aliens August 1, 2014
Robert Goodlatte, R-VA
"So 50,000 coming across the border, that is 50,000 unaccompanied minors coming to the border, and they are a small percentage of the total number of people. Eighty-five percent of the people coming to the border right now—and all categories are up. Children are up most, but all categories are up, and 85 percent are not unaccompanied minors."
Border Crisis August 1, 2014
Thomas Carper, D-DE
"Ordinary working people do not close up shop with urgent work still undone, and neither should we. There is plenty of blame to go around; as I speak, there is a strong chance the House will leave town without taking action on this crisis either. The administration has asked for money, but has yet to speak clearly on what changes it needs in the law governing how we handle child migrants at the border."
Crisis On The Border August 1, 2014
Lindsey Graham, R-SC
"Mr. President, the second issue I would like to talk about is my colleagues in the House are trying to find their way to pass legislation regarding the crisis on the border. They tried yesterday. They failed. They are back at it again."
