Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act Of 2015 November 19, 2015
Zoe Lofgren, D-CA
"We have a process that includes soliciting information from the DEA, from the intelligence agencies, from the FBI, and the like. All of those agencies have a veto. If there is a problem, they veto the admission. The process takes 2 years or more, and a very small number of people actually are admitted."

Rob Portman, R-OH
"More intelligence cooperation between the United States and our allies is absolutely necessary to track suspected ISIS terrorists and prevent them from hiding their presence and launching attacks.

Steve Russell, R-OK
"America has the capacity, the intelligence, and the goodwill to rally nations, but it cannot be a unitary effort. It must be collective. It cannot be a defensive effort. It must be offensive to blunt further attack."
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Continued November 18, 2015
John Cornyn, R-TX
"Criticism of the President’s lack of a strategy is not a partisan issue. It is not limited to members of my political party. On Monday, in an interview on MSNBC, the ranking member on the Senate Intelligence Committee, the senior Senator from California, said: “ISIL is not contained,” adding, “I have never been more concerned.” That is Senator Feinstein the ranking member—I believe they call them vice chair—of the Intelligence Committee. I couldn’t agree with my Democratic colleague from California more. ISIL, ISIS, Daesh—whatever you want to call it—has not been contained. I agree with her. I have never been more concerned about a terrorist threat, particularly since "
