"Mr. Speaker, I rise in memory of a great Californian, a man who was known all up and down the State as “Go See Cal”—Cal Worthington. If you’re a Californian, you have probably seen his ads starting back in the fifties of Cal and his dog Spot. He was also a great hero as a World War II airman and pilot."
Student Loan Rates June 27, 2013
Al Franken, D-MN
"My bill was inspired by what happened in Worthington, MN in December 2006, when Immigration and Customs Enforcement carried out enforcement actions in 6 States and arrested hundreds of unauthorized immigrants. Tragically, those raids also left many children—most of them citizens—without their parents and with no way to find them. One 2nd grader in Worthington came home from school to find his 2-year-old brother alone and his parents gone. For the next week, he cared for his brother while his grandmother drove from Texas to meet them."
