12:03 pm
the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from maryland seek recognition? mr. raskin: mr. speaker, i send to the desk a privileged report from the committee on rules for filing under the rule. the speaker pro tempore: the clerk will report the title. the clerk: -- mr. raskin: mr. speaker, by direction of the committee on rules -- the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman will suspend. the clerk will report the title. the clerk: house calendar number 57, house resolution 848. resolution relating to the consideration of house report 117-216 and accompanying resolution. the speaker pro tempore:
12:04 pm
referred to the house calendar and ordered printed. for what purpose does the gentleman from maryland seek recognition? mr. raskin: mr. speaker, by direction of the committee on rules i call up house resolution 848 and ask for its immediate consideration. the speaker pro tempore: the clerk will report the resolution. the clerk: house calendar number 57, house resolution 848. resolved, that house report 117-216 is called up by direction of the select committee to investigate the january 6 attack on the united states capitol, a, all points of order against the report with waived and report shall be considered as read. and b, one, an accompanying resolution offered by direction of the select committee to investigate the january 6 attack on the united states capitol shall be considered as read and shall not be subject to a point of order. two, the previous question shall be considered as ordered on such resolution to adoption without
12:05 pm
intervening motion or demand for division of the question except one hour of debate equally quieded comong and controlled by representee thompson of mississippi, representative chinaee of wyoming, and opponent or their respective dez ig knees. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from maryland is recognized for one hour. mr. raskin: mr. speaker, for the purposes of debate only, i yield the customary 30 minutes to the the gentlewoman from men mb, pending which i yield myself such time as i may consume. during consideration of this resolution, all time yielded is for the purposes of debate only. i ask unanimous consent that all members may have five legislative days to revise and extend their remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the previous questios recognized. mr. raskin: the rules committee met and reported a rule house resolution 848. the rule provides for consideration of the resolution accompanying house report 117-216 under a closed rule if the report is called up by the direct of select comeeght to investigate the january 6 attack on the capitol. it provides one our of debate
12:06 pm
equally divided. mr. speaker, after producing 9,000 pages of documents that he conceded ton nonprivileged in any way, after saying he would comply with the subpoena to appear before the january 6 committee on december 8, after negotiating and rendering preliminary cooperation with the january 6 committee, mark meadows' book came out with tons of startling and eye popping revelations about january 6 and the role that -- then president donald trump played. ex-president trump exploded and called mr. meadows' book, fake news. amazingly mr. meadows agreed that his book was fake news, then he suddenly pulled the plug on his agreement to testify in formal deposition before our committee on december 8.
12:07 pm
instead, went to court and alleged our committee has no valid legislative purpose. mr. speaker, mr. meadows' sudden vanishing act is plainly a delay tactic designed to run out the clock on one of the most important investigations in the history of the united states of america. if we don't have a legislative purpose in investigating the most sweeping violent attack on the u.s. capitol since the war of 1812, and the most serious and most dangerous threat to american constitutional democracy since the civil war, then we really don't have a legislative purpose for anything we do here. it's this investigation into a dangerous assault on the american government is not necessary and proper under our constitution, then nothing is. article 1, section 8, clause 15 of the constitution gives
12:08 pm
congress of the united states the power to provide for, calling forth the militia to execute the laws of the union, suppress insurrections, and repel invasions. obviously we have a legislative purpose in what we are doing to investigate an attack on this building, on this chamber where more than 140 of our officers were wounded and injured, hospitalized, people came back with broken next, broken jaws, broken vertebrae, broken arms, broken legs, traumatic brain injuries and to this day continue to suffer from posttraumatic stress syndrome. the counting of the electoral college votes was interrupted for the very first time in american history for several hours. this was the most serious destabilizing domestic threat to
12:09 pm
american constitutional democracy that any of us have seen in our lifetimes. now, the committee's bent over backwards to accommodate mr. meadows' multiple requests. it's now clear he has no intention of complying with the subpoena, even when his testimony could have no theoretical connection to an executive privileged claim. this is the key point. he is categorically refusing to show up to testify about 9,000 pages of documents that he has already turned over to the committee and for which he has thus nullified any hypothetical assertions of executive privilege by president biden or a former president. he is refusing to testify about statements that he made in his book that are now all over the country, published last week, and that he has repeated in the media about what took place on january 6. he's willing to talk about it in
12:10 pm
his book, he's willing to talk about it in public, but he's unwilling to undergo the questioning of our committee despite having been subpoenaed to do so in deposition. this is another category of statements which has nothing to do with executive privilege because it has already been completely waved, completely obviated, completely nullified by his own actions. this witness, mr. speaker, must testify. he must come and render truthful, honest, and complete testimony like 300 other witnesses before him have done. either voluntarily and patriotically as the vast majority have done, or at least under compulsion of illegal subpoena. the supreme court has been perfectly clear about that. we have the same authority to ask for people's testimony that
12:11 pm
a court does in pursuit of our official constitutional duties. and if anyone we have called as a witness knows in his bones that he must testify before this committee, it is mr. meadows himself, a former member of this body who repeatedly through his career in congress insisted that high ranking executive branch officials must comply with congressional demands for information and congressional subpoenas for their testimony. and by the way, you don't get to choose and say, well, i'll send you in my documents but i'm not going to testify. that's not how going before congress works or going before a court works. in the last administration, multiple times mr. meadows found high ranking officials hiding information from congress, withholding relevant documents, or, quote, even outright ignoring congressional subpoenas. here's what he had to say about that. this level of conduct paired
12:12 pm
with the failure to even fayne and interest in transparency is reprehensible in whether you are a republican or democrat, this kind of construction is wrong, period. for nine months we warned them consequences were coming and for nine months we heard the same excuses backed up by the same unacceptable conduct. time is up and the consequences are here. we have multiple statements by mr. meadows like that. who was a distinguished member of the oversight committee. he of all members continually insisted that people and high ranking government officials respect the authority of congress to do its job. and our investigative powers are implicit in and intertwined with our powers to legislate as the supreme court has repeatedly emphasized. the meadows lawsuit against individual members of this committee is extremely dubious in light of the speech and
12:13 pm
debate clause in multiple other constitutional roadblocks, and substantive allegations are frivolous such as the central absurd claim that congress has no legitimate purpose in investigating and reporting to the american people on a violent attack on our capitol, our presidential election, and on the peaceful transfer of power. we must hold him in contempt for his refusal to participate in these proceedings. i reserve at this point, mr. speaker. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the chair will receive a message. the messenger: mr. speaker, messages from the senate. the secretary: mr. speaker. i have been directed by the senate to inform the house that the senate has passed s.2959, an act to provide that due to toys ruptions caused by covid-19 applications for impact aid funding for fiscal year 2023 may be used certain data submitted in the fiscal year 2022 application which concurrence of
12:14 pm
the house is requested. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady from minnesota is recognized. >> mr. speaker, thank you. i thank my colleague from maryland and rules committee for yielding me the customary 30 minutes. i yield myself such time as i may consume. mr. speaker, once again the select committee is acting to fulfill a predetermined narrative. miss particularback: it seems increasingly clear my colleagues on the other side of the aisle want to prolong this political process to distract americans from the very real issues concerning this country. we have record high inflation, a flood of immigrants at our southern border, a work force and supply chain crisis. instead of working towards real ways we can combat these crises, or in fact even admitting that these crises exist, we are back here arguing if we should continue down a path of yet another partisan investigation of questionable mowive and purpose.
12:15 pm
mowive and purpose. that said there are several questions that need to be lee solved before we can continue with this vote. the courts have found that the power rests with congress over subpoenas into private individuals if they serve a legitimate legislative purpose. a legitimate legislative purpose would be issuing subpoenas to the leader -- leaders of the d.c. national guard, the sergeant at arms so that we can find out what gaps in communications and authorities need to be filled and find solutions to ensure this doesn't happen again. but have those been issued? unfortunately not. instead, house democrats are continuing their witch-hunt into president trump and their political opponents that voted against the certification of the election. . what information is intended to be gathered that would be useful for a legitimate legislative purpose? it seems the majority seems to be moving the goal post for what
12:16 pm
qualifies them to what it means to hold someone in contempt. this is 9,000 pages of emails and other documents. but when the majority couldn't find what they wanted, the committee subpoenaed verizon looking for other information from his personal phone, invading his privacy. there is no valid legislative purpose for this subpoena. and where does it stop? when will they be satisfied with the information they receive? they cannot continue punishing people just because they aren't getting the answers that they want. furthermore, criminal contempt is not subpoena enforcement. this decision will still not achieve the stated intend of obtaining the records. the committee should seek a civil judgment and legally obligate a person to comply with the subpoena. but instead, my colleagues are going forward with this political ploy. holding someone in criminal contempt is purely punitive.
12:17 pm
it leads me to wonder what the real mission of this committee is. unfortunately, speaker pelosi and the democrats made it clear early on that this committee and its investigation were predestined to be a sham when it tilted representation in favor of democrats rejecting two republican members selected to serve on the commission by the minority leader. mr. speaker, i am deeply concerned about the precedent being set today because the majority is blinded by their own political agenda. i urge my colleagues to oppose this rule and the underlying resolution. thank you, mr. speaker, and i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman reserves. the gentleman is recognized. mr. raskin: thank you, mr. speaker. first of all, on the matter of the phone records, what has been subpoenaed is simply the metadata establishing where the phone calls were going amongst
12:18 pm
different parties that were involved in the january 6 insurrection and the attempted political coup against vice president pence but not the collections themselves. there is not a single word that has been subpoenaed from the telephone companies of actual conversations that took place. all of that in any event is an irrelevant distraction. let's be very clear what's going on here, mr. speaker. mr. meadows began to cooperate. he turned over 9,000 documents of extraordinary relevance to this investigation. we're getting exactly what we want. we were getting exactly what we wanted up until the point which he pulled the plug on his participation. look at some of the texts which we've released over the last 24 hours that came in as part of his discovery with the committee. here's from some republican lawmakers and others. we are under siege up here at the capitol was one text he
12:19 pm
received. they have breached the capitol. mark, protesters are rit lally -- literally storming the capitol, breaking windows on our doors, rushing in. is trump going to say something? there's an armed standoff at the house chamber door. we are all helpless. here's what came in from some members of the media that mr. meadows turned over to the committee. laura ingraham marked, the president needs to tell the people in the capitol to go home. this is hurting all of us. he is destroying his legacy. brian kilmeade sent this text to mark meadows. please get him on tv. destroying everything you have accomplished. here's sean hannity. can he make a statement? ask people to leave the capitol. trump family members were also texting, according to the materials turned over by mark meadows. donald trump jr. -- he's got to condemn this exkrament asap.
12:20 pm
the capitol police is not enough, meadows responding. i am pushing it hard. i agree. donald trump jr. we need an oval office address. he has to lead now. it has gone too far and gotten out of hand. mr. speaker, all of these texts and hundreds more like them lead to hundreds of questions that we have about the sequence of events on january 6. who did what in response to different pleas from lawmakers, democrat and republican alike, who did what in response to these pleas coming in from members of the media and from members of the trump family. what was the sequence of events? how was the national guard involved? how did this interact with other parts of the federal government? and then mr. meadows, though, did a u-turn, when donald trump called his book fake news. and meadows decided to agree with him and hurt i hadly say it
12:21 pm
was -- hurridy say it was fake news and would not be here a date because we wanted to accommodate his schedule and the schedule of his lawyer. now, he decides to go completely cold. you see, they're left in a completely untenable posture legally because he's refusing to testify about things that he's already conceded there is -- already conceded. there is no privilege covering. he said none of this is privilege. i'm turning it over to you. we want to ask him questions about it. now suddenly he runs back to the idea there's some privilege. although one can see his eroding faith in that argument, as the d.c. circuit rejected the claims of executive privilege unanimously in trump vs. thompson. so now that's why he's saying we have no rejet mate will be
12:22 pm
legitimate legislative purpose. if we don't have a legislative purpose in defending our own institution, our own constitution, our own government, then we have no legislative purposes here at all. if we can't even have an investigation into an attack that goes to the very survival of our form of government. mr. speaker, mark meadows has to testify. he has to come in. like 300 american citizens have patriotically and lawfully done. what makes him special? the fact that he knows a former president of the united states? i'm afraid not. you know, in jones vs. clinton, a case my colleagues applauded on the other side of the aisle, the supreme court held that even a sitting president of the united states is not immune to civil actions. even a sitting president. and we don't have an office of former president. when you're no longer president of the united states, under our constitution, you're a citizen, like everybody else. you can't wave a magic wand over
12:23 pm
your friends and say they don't have to comply with lawful subpoenas. so this witness is in contempt of our committee and the united states congress. and i'm going to reserve the rest of my time and yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentlewoman from minnesota is recognized. mrs. fischbach: mr. speaker, if we defeat the previous question, republicans will offer an amendment to the rule to provide for the additional consideration of h.r. 2729, the finish the wall act, authored by representative higgins. i ask unanimous consent to insert the text of my amendment in the record along with extraneous material immediately prior to the vote on the previous question. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mrs. fischbach: thank you. mr. speaker, while the majority is playing their political games in washington, a real crisis situation at our southern border remains. illegal immigration is at a record high, and there are real human costs associated with
12:24 pm
that. between the dangerous journey to get to our border and the dangerous people coming across and continuing to commit crimes, people are dying in huge numbers because of the crisis. it's no secret fentanyl is coming across the southern border. this year, border patrol has seized twice as much of this highly deadly drug as last year and more than 100,000 americans have died from overdoses. because we essentially have an open border, there is no way to effectively keep criminals from crossing our -- crossing into our country. immigrants need to know there is a process for becoming an american and doing it in the wrong way will have consequences. finishing the wall would be a huge deterrent for these bad actors. we must finish the wall to slow the massive number of illegal immigrants we're seeing before we can have serious conversation about immigration reform. mr. speaker, i yield three minutes to the representative
12:25 pm
from texas. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from texas is recognized. >> mr. speaker, i rise today in opposition of the previous question and to further highlight the failed border policies inflicted on the american people by president biden's administration. border security is national security. my district is over 820 miles of the southern border. over 40% of our entire border with mexico. every day i see the challenges my constituents face this administration has failed to protect them. it has failed to prioritize their safety as american citizens. every day i hear from border patrol agents and the struggles they face because of a lack of resources and their demanding work schedules. every day i talk to constituents and border town mayors who share their troubling experiences dealing with burglaries and high-speed car chases. mr. gonzalez: enough fentanyl has been seized at the border to kill every american in the united states. enough is enough.
12:26 pm
the biden administration's failed policies has led to a historic surge in illegal immigration. we need to find a permanent solution that combines border security and legal immigration so long as i am -- immigration. so long as i'm in congress, i will fight every day to ensure we secure the southern border. thank you, mr. speaker. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the gentleman from maryland is recognized. mr. raskin: thank you, mr. speaker. i appreciate, of course, the temptation to just change the subject and talk about something completely different because there are no arguments left on their side. the d.c. circuit court of appeals in the trump vs. bennie thompson case in an opinion over 50 pages reviewed all of the arguments on both sides about executive privilege and said executive privilege is a claim which, of course, belongs primarily and principally to the existing president of the united states, not to a former president of the united states. to the extent a former president
12:27 pm
of the united states can raise it, the presumption is that the people in our constitutional democracy have a right to all of the information they seek in order to govern ourselves. that's what the investigative power of congress is about. we've got the right to obtain information we need in order to legislate. so the presumption is, we get it. that can only be overcome if a sitting president or perhaps in the exceptional cases a former president demonstrate there's some compelling need that would override the fundamental right of the people to get the information we want. and the d.c. circuit panel found unanimously that not only had they not shown there was a compelling need on donald trump's seem, they didn't even identify a potentially compelling need. and, of course, there isn't one. why? the supreme court has already found that executive privilege does not cover criminal
12:28 pm
activity. much less could executive privilege cover insurrectionary activity or a coup against the united states of america. so i welcome my colleagues talking about anything else, because it simply demonstrates their abandonment of the executive privilege argument, an argument that has been abandoned by mr. meadows himself who voluntarily turned over 9,000 pages of documents to our committee, thereby saying there was no privilege at all. but now he's refusing to testify about it apparently because of donald trump's explosive reaction to the publication of mark meadows' book. i'm sorry, that is not a constitutional defense to being called to testify before congress. you can't say a former president is mad at me and wants to wave a magic wand so i don't have to testify.
12:29 pm
it doesn't work in our system of government. mr. meadows must come and testify, like hundreds of people come to testify before our committee about this brutal attack on our system of government. i'm going to yield at this point to the gentlelady from texas, ms. jackson lee. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman is recognized. ms. jackson lee: i thank the distinguished gentleman of the january 6 select committee. i serve as the chair of the subcommittee on crime, terrorism, and homeland security, which collectively, with the judiciary committee, may ultimately be addressing the legislative aspect of what we are here for. in particular, mr. speaker, this is a very sad day. i served with my former colleague, our former colleague, mr. meadows, a member of the united states congress, and i believe that it was a number of years that he rose and took an oath to the constitution of the united states of america.
12:30 pm
in that oath, he should have recognized the fact that the article 1 body of which we stand in today indicates that all legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a congress of the united states, which shall consist of a senate and a house. all legislative powers. in order to have legislative powers, one must have the facts. that is what is being asked for today. . i think the miles per hour people need to understand, although there may be many concerns, i am from texas as well. the border is in crisis, it should be addressed. we as texans know how to address it and president biden, vice president harris knows how to address it, and other presidents have. people are fleeing for their lives. our constitution says of the congress to make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into executive the
12:31 pm
foregoing powers and all other powers vested by the constitution of the united states, the united states of america, and any department or office therein. we are vested with a lot of powers. one of them is to be able to find the truth, to determine how we preserve our democracy, and how we need to legislate to do so. i stand on the constitution as i proceed with why we should move forward. again, this is a very sad day. but mark randell meadows, former white house chief of staff, had a part in the perpetration of the big lie of the election fraud, and we must investigate it. mr. meadows is one of a relatively small group of people who witnessed the events of january 6 in the white house and with the then former president. he was there. firsthand knowledge. some of these that i recite has already been recited, there are only a small measure with the huge bounty of documents that he and his lawyer consented to give to this give.
12:32 pm
consented to give. consented to give. voluntarily. so one must understand that when you do that there is a question, a waiver of the so-called alleged privilege that you are alleging. the executive privilege. but the courts have already indicated that the privilege lies with the existing president, not the former president. and with that in mind, should we not recognize that the very allies, media allies of the president, former president, laura ingram, mark, the president needs to tell people in the capitol to go home. this is hurting all of us. brian, please give him -- mr. raz kin: i grant the lady -- mr. raskin: i grant the lady 20 minutes -- 30 seconds more. ms. jackson lee: brian on tv destroying everything we have accomplished. sean han it, can he make a statement. and donald trump jr. in profanity said please help us. i wanted to say united states versus brian says a subpoena has
12:33 pm
never been treated as an invitation to game of hounds in which the witness must testify only if cornered at the end of a chase f that was the case the gate power of testimony of compulsion so necessary to the effective function of courts and legislatures would be a nullity. we have often iterated the importance of the public duty with every person within the jurisdiction of the government be bound to properly summed. we must do this in order for his remarks to save the democracy to be heard. i yield back. mr. raskin: i thank the gentlelady for her very insightful remarks. the committee has referred often to the passage that the gentlelady identifies by the supreme court saying that a subpoena to come and testify is not an invitation to a game of hare and hounds. a little old-fashioned. court saying it's not game of hide and go seek or cat and mouse. you are told to come and testify and you must.
12:34 pm
that's what the vast majority of people have been doing in our investigation. and the vast majority of americans do all across the land when they are subpoenaed to come to court. it seems like a tiny handful of people who think that somehow they are above the law because they know a former president of the united states. i'm sorry, that's just not how our legal system works. we have no kings here. as the judge emphasized in the district court in rejecting donald trump's claims against our committee. we have no kings here. everyone is subject to the law. we have no nobles. we have no lords. congress cannot award titles of noblity here. we are all equals and we are all subject to the law. it is a crime in the district of columbia not to comply with the subpoena, punishable by up to one year in jail and $100,000 fine. very serious business. now, if you think you've got
12:35 pm
some kind of legal privilege against testifying, like the marital privilege, or the pryce pennant privilege -- pryce -- priest pennant privilege. you come up and testify and invoke it as to a specific question. the reason why this case is overwhelmingly easy, we would argue 100% easy, mr. speaker, is because we are talking about testimony by mr. meadows that he's been subpoenaed to give relating to 9,000 documents that he has already admitted are not privileged. by the executive privilege or the fifth amendment or anything else. he has said here, take them. this is evidence about what happened. and rightfully so did he do that. i will express my personal disappointment that donald trump's explosive rage about the publication of mr. meadow's
12:36 pm
book, occasion some kind of change in attitude about it, but regardless of his subjective attitude, he has a legal obligation to show up and to answer the questions of this committee. i yield and remain -- i reserve. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentlewoman is recognized. mrs. fischbach: mr. speaker, i yield two minutes to the gentlewoman from new mexico. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman investigated. ms. herrell: today i rise in support of the finish the wall act for which i am proudly a co-sponsor. by the end of this year two million people will have tried to cross our borders illegally. that's more than the state -- almost as many people as the state i represent. hundreds of thousands have succeeded and many thousands more are being released into our communities never to return to an immigration status hearing. when border patrol agents courageously tried to do their jobs against overwhelming odds, they were attacked by president biden who said that they would make them pay. that is not how we lead a
12:37 pm
country. that is not how we treat american heroes who keep us safe. but past presidents did not abandon our border. under president trump 458 miles of border wall system were completed with hundreds more fully funded. of course on the first day of office president biden sabotaged this important project and undermined the physical border security promised to the american people. this is unacceptable. we must protect our country. we must protect our people. we must finish the law. this legislation would compel the white house and the department of homeland security to do their jobs. the funding is there. the plans are there. the materials are there. all we lack is leadership from the oval office. until true leadership returns to the white house, the people's house will have to step in and solve the biden border crisis. i urge my colleagues to pass the finish the wall act, keep our promises and secure or borders. thank you, mr. speaker. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman yields back.
12:38 pm
the gentleman from maryland is recognized. mr. raskin: thank you very much, mr. speaker. i just want to emphasize that in his distinguished service in this chamber, mr. meadows would never tolerate an executive official simply deciding to blow off a subpoena of the u.s. congress. said whether you are republican or democrat, this kind of obstruction is wrong, period. and he repeatedly complained about intransigence and delays by the executive branch. i think he understands exactly why this is a matter of such graphity -- gravity to our body. as i was saying as a member not just of the rules committee but the january 6 committee, we have seen overwhelming participation
12:39 pm
and cooperation by the people we have called. most people are doing their legal duty and their civic and patriotic duty by coming forward and voluntarily saying here's what i know. here's the information i got to help you put together a report for the american people. it just seems as we have gotten closer and closer to donald trump, that's where we are running into the obstructionism. as from steve ban none. as from jeffrey clark. now we have this problem we are in with mark meadows who had been on the path of cooperation, had turned over these thousands of documents, and now he's in the very awkward position of saying he's not going to testify about thousands of documents that he already turned over to us which demonstrate how radically dangerous that day, in fact, was. let me just read a few more of the texts that mr. meadows
12:40 pm
disclosed to our committee. one said we are under siege up here at the capitol. that came to him on january 6. the other, they breached the capital. they were literally storming the capitol, breaking windows on doors. is trump going to say something? we are all helpless? dozens of texts, including from trump administration officials urged immediate action by the president. quote, poe tus has -- potus has to come out and test protestors dissipate. someone is going to get killed. of course several people died on that day and within days of the attacks on january 6. in another, mark, he needs to stop this now. a third in all caps. tell them to go home. a fourth, i quote, potus needs to calm this expletive decleated
12:41 pm
excrement, down. multiple fox news hosts themselves knew the president needed to act immediately. they texted mr. meadows. he turned over those texts to us. quote, mark, the president needs to tell people in the capitol go home. this is hurting all of us. he is destroying his legacy, wrote laura ink a ham. brian texted, please get him on tv. destroying everything you have accomplished. sean hannity urged by text, can he make a statement, ask the people to leave the capitol. so on. we need to find out what actions were taken in response to all of those entreaties from members of congress, from members of the media, from members of trump's own family. what sequence of events took place afterwards. i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentlewoman from minnesota is recognized. mrs. fischbach: thank you, mr. speaker.
12:42 pm
i yield two minutes to the gentleman from new york. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. >> thank you, mr. speaker. i rise today to urge the defeat of the previous question so we can immediately consider h.r. 2729, the finish the wall act. my colleague on the other side of the aisle said that there is no crisis at the southern border. i think the american people would disagree. she says the administration has the solution. i wish they wouldn't keep it a secret. the crisis at the southern border has reached a tipping point. the legal border crossings at record highs. yet this administration refuses to act. i visited the southern border and saw for myself how bad things are. i also saw piles of building materials already paid for sitting like rubble next to a partially built wall. the temporary fencing in place is laughable. i could have walked right through the gaping holes and had a nice veterans day weighings kaition. imagine we are on the other side of the fence desperate to get to america where the president assured you could say if you made it the other -- it to the
12:43 pm
other side. mr. garbarino: this bill requires the secretary of homeland security to resume construction of the border wall within 24 hours of enactment using funds congress has already appropriated to building the wall. the wall is more than just a fence. it includes sensors and technology border patrol needs to effectively hold the line. the agents i spoke with at the border are doing everything they can to stop illegal crossings. they are overwhelmed and under equipped. drug smugglers, human traffickers are taking full advantage of this vulnerability. while turning a blind eye to the dangers of our border crisis may soift administration's agenda, it does not serve the american people or now miconstituents. on long island law enforcement continues to grapple with ms-13 gang members embodened by the policies of this administration and exploiting the crisis at our boardtory gain access to our country. i urge this body to take and immediately consider h.r. 2729,
12:44 pm
the finish the border wall construction and stop the influx of drugs, criminal activity, and gang violence brought by ms-13 into this country. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the gentleman from maryland is recognized mr. raskin: i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentlelady from minnesota is recognized. mrs. fischbach: mr. speaker, i yield two minutes to the gentleman from texas. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from texas is recognized. >> mr. speaker, i rise today to defeat the previous question. i love this righteous discussion about law and order. it has been nearly one year, one party rule for this country. i speak for my constituents, i rise as a texan and count less others across the nation who have the whiplash being tossed from one crisis to another crisis to yet another crisis. caused by the policies, the misguided policies of this administration. mr. pfluger: we are not changing the subject here. we are actually staying focused on the issues that matter to
12:45 pm
most americans. the complete breakdown of respect for law enforcement and the rule of law, since we are talking about the rule of law, the breakdown of the rule of law has crime running rampant. we heard about fentanyl, the kriez rising crime in communities like mine because of the open border that we have. you know who doesn't show up for court orders? 99.9% of the illegal immigrants who are served those papers. they are the one that is don't show up. thert ones that don't show up. we have americans stranded behind enemy lines after president biden's afghanistan catastrophe. communist china unleashed covid-19 on the world and committing genocide on uighur muslims. and companies must comply with the tyrannical mask mandate. an impending energy crisis,
12:46 pm
border crisis. those are the subjects we are focusing on. today, instead of addressing these crises, democrats have recycled their own tricks and wasting time trying to punish yet again president trump. you can only beat the same dead horse so many times. republicans are here to work and it's long past time that action is taken to quell these crises. we're urging democrat colleagues to look at the crisis at hand. when is the last time that one of my colleagues on the other side of the aisle visited the border and can speak with any sort of authority that we don't have a crisis? we need to stop illegal immigration. we need to finish the wall. we have got to secure this border. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from maryland is recognized. mr. raskin: i will reserve my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentlelady from minnesota is recognized. mrs. fischbach: mr. speaker, i yield two minutes to the gentlewoman from texas -- excuse me -- from florida. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady is recognized. >> thank you.
12:47 pm
i rise today to urge my colleagues to help defeat the previous question and once and for all address this lingering crisis that we know is in fact a crisis. mrs. cammack: the travesties unfolding on our southwest borders can no longer be ignored and i know we know the facts. i know my colleagues on the other side of the aisle know the drugs that are pouring into our communities, killing thousands as a direct result of the open border policy. but few times have we've seen or heard the stories of how people are actually being affected. you know, just a couple days ago i received a text message from a border patrol agent. an american mother and daughter were traveling and killed on a head-on collision with an illegal smuggling six other illegals. they were evading, driving at a fast pace, and instead, killed a very young family. in his words, this border patrol agent said, it was just a matter of time. this happens all the time.
12:48 pm
that is unacceptable that it's just a matter of time. it's just a matter of time before this body takes action, and it's probably going to be in about 12 months. you know, the broken policies of this administration have broken our families here in the united states. they are the true victims of the biden and the democrats in action. and it's stunning to hear and demoralize and to strip those that are trying to uphold the very law that they took an oath to protect. i wish my colleagues would do the same. because it's unacceptable to hear from our own that it's just a matter of time. it's just a matter of time before someone else gets killed or another family gets broken or someone else overdoses from the incredible amount of drugs that are pouring into our community. but we have solutions and we have resources. and that is why we need to continue to finish to build the
12:49 pm
wall. the force multiplier our very own agents have said time and time again will save lives, prevent more tragedies. and that is why i urge my colleagues to help defeat the previous question so we can do what we said we would do -- finish the wall. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from maryland is recognized. mr. raskin: mr. speaker, the gentlelady invokes the oath of office. former president trump swore an oath to uphold and defend our constitution, and we have all of these tweets, which clearly indicate he wasn't doing that. house resolution 503 authorizes and obligates our committee to get to the particulars and details of what took place on january 6. what were the causes behind it? what do we need to do to defend ourselves in the future against these kinds of attacks on our election process, on the peaceful transfer of power, and on the workings of congress?
12:50 pm
that's what we're doing. and with their january 6 case collapsing all around them, my colleagues now head for the border in their rhetoric. i don't blame them for doing that. but they're not going to fool the american people. people understand exactly what's happening here. the prior speaker said that it's a crime not to show up for a subpoena. he said you know who does that, undocumented aliens. well, then it's undocumented aliens in steve bannon and mark meadows who are violating the law. i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentlewoman is recognized. mrs. fischbach: mr. speaker, i yield one minute to the gentlewoman from illinois. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady is recognized. >> thank you, mr. speaker. the members of the january 6 commission have turned this body into a star chamber, using the powers of congress to persecute and bankrupt their political opponents. mrs. miller: using political power to destroy your political
12:51 pm
opponents is evil and un-american. we are not a banana republic. right now, the american people are suffering under the harsh economic realities of the biden administration. record high inflation, record high gas prices, record high home heated bills, empty shelves at christmas, covid mandates, and lockdowns continue to threaten our economy and our children's future. what is the january 6 commission's response to the sufferings under biden's policy? another never-ending political witch-hunt for president trump. they hate president trump because he exposed the corruption of the d.c. establishment here in the swamp. this january 6 commission is a disgrace, and anyone who voted for it should be ashamed of themselves. i urge a no vote on this rule. thank you and i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the
12:52 pm
gentleman from maryland is recognized. mr. raskin: i'm going to reserve, mr. speaker. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentlelady from minnesota is recognized. mrs. fischbach: mr. speaker, i yield one minute to the gentlewoman from new mexico. sorry. i yield two minutes. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady is recognized. >> i rise to ask my fellow members of congress to think about the reputation of this institution, the trust the american people -- the trust of the american people and beyond their political passions of the moment. i ask us to be statesmen. rather than focusing on jobs, the border, our colleagues across the aisle are focused on this distraction. ms. herrell: they have now tried to hold three people in contempt of congress. their first target, steve bannon, had just shown up to be disposed he would not have faced
12:53 pm
consequences. however, mr. bannon felt this would violate former president trump's executive privileges and raised questions to the committee. next, the committee held jeffrey clark in contempt. this was based on mr. clark agreeing to appear but not saying exactly what the partisan political operatives of the committee wanted him to say while mr. clark asserted his constitutional rights. it is staggering abuse of power for the house of representatives to threaten someone for merely using the rights the constitution affords them. now we reach my friend, mark meadows. he has cooperated and provided thousands of pages of documents. however, mr. meadows, president trump's chief of staff during the january 6, invoked his executive privilege. in his testimony, he wrote all future use of executive privilege. even after mr. meadows turned over text, democrats have gone
12:54 pm
so far to subpoena verizon for mr. pled oes' -- mr. meadows' records. it should stay in "house of cards" and other tv shows. what's the purpose of this? is it not to secure the capitol? it's political exercise to exact political revenge against allies and employees of the former president. this is about using the government to punish political adversaries. this is not an american practice but something akin to a about a manna republic on -- banana republic on its way to tyranny. i urge a no vote. thank you, mr. speaker. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman's time has expired. the gentleman from maryland is recognized. mr. raskin:ry serve. the speaker pro tempore: -- mr. raskin: i reserve. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentlewoman from minnesota is recognized. mrs. fischbach: thank you, mr. speaker. i yield four minutes to the gentleman from north carolina. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady yields. the gentleman is recognized. >> i thank the gentlelady. i have to hesitancy to take on the gentleman from maryland on the point he made. i would say first of all this --
12:55 pm
i hope he'll continue to read those text messages because they don't proof what you -- prove what you think they prove. quite the congressional traer. i can't think of how many times the gentleman from california has spoken in derisive terms about donald trump jr. but donald trump jr.'s tweet shows he was concerned about exactly the right things. mr. bishop: you don't see tweets coming from republicans about bailing out violent rioters, abolishing police forces or decrying the plight of jesse s -- jussee smolett. the democrats are dealing with the president's close counselor and the legal principles that arise there from. especially the constant and repeated threat of criminal prosecution in the face of an unresolved issue of privilege.
12:56 pm
when you treat willful noncompliance, you mean a lack of goodwill basis. in the house report it's replete with contentions over the nature and extent of the president's executive privilege. the positions that are taken in mr. meadows' behalf are those that have been continually asserted by the department of justice. in fact, many others -- many other potential objectionsers' completely waived -- objections completely waived. it's not inquiring into associate, to speech, to petition for redress. or absence the legitimate legislative purpose. and repeated over and over by the gentleman from maryland, the current position on privilege is entirely sensible. mr. meadows has produced those documents that are implicated by
12:57 pm
the current president's waiver of privilege, but he preserves that core part of privilege that president trump is likely entitled to preserve. that is to say what he was told by one of his closest advisors. nothing ill legitimate about it at all. what is illegitimate on how to deal with a counselor of a president, the representative of a part of government. even while the handwriting oseason -- handwriting is on the wall -- may you enjoy the fruits. let the contempt resolutions and the criminal referrals flow freely and quickly as a river. merrick garland, hunter biden, chuck dolan, andrew weissman,
12:58 pm
alejandro mayorkas. let them come. this is the choice that's being made by the democrats. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the gentleman from maryland is recognized. mr. raskin: i reserve. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentlelady from minnesota is recognized. mrs. fischbach: mr. speaker, i yield one minute to the gentlewoman from georgia. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman from georgia is recognized. mrs. greene: we heard a lot about text messages. i'd like to -- the democrats and the people on the january 6 committee to produce their text messages, mr. speaker, denouncing antifa, b.l.m. riots that raged across american cities for a year. i would love to read those. but instead, we saw democrats encourage, incite, and continue to call these riots peaceful. and then, when they got arrested and put in jail, they bailed them out so they could go out and riot some more. i rise in opposition to this resolution to hold mark meadows
12:59 pm
in contempt of congress because it's being held by nothing but a kangaroo court. congress' job is to make laws, not enforce them. that's the role of the executive and the judicial branch of this government, but somehow, the communists here in charge have forgotten -- not forgotten but purposely abusing the constitution and what this body of congress is supposed to do. you see, when we go to this level, to the point where we're forgetting and abusing what our power is, then the american people will trust us no more. and that is exactly what the january 6 committee is doing. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from maryland is recognized. mr. raskin: reserve. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentlelady from minnesota is recognized. mrs. fischbach: mr. speaker, i am prepared to close. mr. raskin: we have no more speakers. we're prepared to close after she does. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady from minnesota. mrs. fischbach: mr. speaker,
1:00 pm
this select committee is clearly operating outside the realm of its intended purpose. they do not like the information they are receiving, and they know they aren't getting anywhere, so instead, they criminally punish those who they politically disagree with. there isn't adequate minority representation, and because of that, the majority has been able to turn the committee into a vehicle to push their own narrative. . it is more interested in pursuing a partisan agenda to politicize the january 6 attack rather than conducting a legitimate good-faith investigation into security failures leading up to that day. again, there is nothing more than an attempt by the democrats to distract from the very real issues phasing americans -- facing americans every day. i look forward to getting back to the real work of solving the supply chain crisis, reclaiming american energy production, and empowering u.s. citizens to live their lives without government
1:01 pm
interference. thank you, mr. speaker. i oppose the rule and underlying legislation and i urge my colleagues to do the same. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady yields back. the gentleman from maryland is recognized. mr. raskin: mr. speaker, hundreds of people have come forward to testify about the violent and dangerous events of january 6. it's just a handful of people like mr. ban none -- bannon and mr. meadows who think they are above the wall. we are not a banana republic because we hold everybody to equality under the law. and we are not communists as the gentlelady from georgia suggested. that's just the friends of the former president who you lionized like the dictator of north korea who he loves and putin who said that the greatest tragedy of the 20th century was the collapse of the soviet union. those are your friends. don't put them on our side. they are saying that the january 6 committee is out to persecute and bankrupt their opponents. on the contrary, we are out to write a report under house
1:02 pm
resolution to the american people about the most violent and sweeping dangerous attack on the republic since the civil war. or the war of 1812. mr. bannon's raising money on it. far from bankrupting mr. bannon, he's trying to get rich on it. mark meadows has written a book where he tells all the stories he wants about january 6. he doesn't want to face the rule of law and the questions of this bipartisan committee, which is making tremendous progress in terms of getting the truth of what happened on that day. i recommend to all of my colleagues who invoke the rule of law today that they read the d.c. circuit court opinion which obliterates every single argument they have made about executive privilege. it's basically gone now because the way the law works is the people have a right to get the information we want unless there is a compelling interest on the other side. they haven't even pretended to invoke a compelling interest. what's the compelling interest in being able to prepare an insurrection?
1:03 pm
a coop against the koft? is that what we want. the that outgoing presidents can organize an insurrection against the vice president and encourage people who out and -- who go out and stage a riot? i don't think so. couple of speakers say this is a legislative purpose, this is the central purpose of our government to make the government survive and go out and serve the people. that's what this committee is doing. he is in contempt, mr. speaker. i urge a yes vote on the rule and the previous question. i yield back the balance of my time. i move the previous question on the resolution. the speaker pro tempore: the question is on ordering the previous question on the resolution. so many as are in favor say aye. those opposed, no. in the opinion of the chair, the noes have it. mr. raskin: i demand a recorded vote. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from maryland is recognized.
1:04 pm
mr. raskin: i ask for the yeas and nays. the speaker pro tempore: pursuant to section 3 of resolution 8, the yeas and nays are ordered. pursuant to clause 8 of rule 20, quurt proceedings are postponed -- further proceedings are postponed.
1:05 pm
the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from massachusetts seek recognition? mr. mcgotsche: i call up house resolution 849 and ask for its immediate consideration. the speaker pro tempore: the clerk will report the resolution. the clerk: house calendar number 58, house resolution 849. resolved, that upon adoption of this resolution it shall be in order to consider in the house
1:06 pm
the bill h.r. 5665, to establish in the department of state the office to monitor and combat islamophobia, and for other purposes. all points of order against consideration of the bill are waived. in lieu of the amendments recommended by the committee on foreign affairs now printed in the bill, an amendment in the nature of a substitute consisting of the text of rules committee print 117-23, modified by the amendment printed in the report of the committee on rules accompanying this resolution, shall be considered as adopted. the bill, as amended, shall be considered as read. all points of order against provisions in the bill, as amended, are waived. the previous question shall be considered as ordered on the bill, as amended, and on any further amendment thereto, to final passage without intervening motion except one, one hour of debate equally divided and controlled by the chair and ranking minority member of the committee on foreign affairs or their respective designees, and two, one motion to recommit.
1:07 pm
the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from massachusetts is recognized for one hour. mr. mcgovern:00 mr. speaker, for the purposes of debate only, i yield the customary 30 minutes to my good friend the gentleman from pennsylvania, mr. reschenthaler. pebding which i yield myself such time as i may consume -- pending which i yield myself such time as i may consume. during consideration of this resolution, all time yielded is for the purposes of debate only. i ask unanimous consent that all members may have five legislative days to revise and extend their remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. mcgovern: mr. speaker, today the rules committee met and reported a rule which would provide for the consideration of h.r. 5665, the combating international islamophobia act under a closed rule. it provides one hour of debate equally divided and controlled by the chair and ranking minority member of the committee on foreign affairs. self-executes a manager's amendment from chairman meeks and provide for one motion to recommit. mr. speaker, we are here today at a time when anti-muslim hatred has risen to epidemic
1:08 pm
proportions. that's not my opinion. that's according to the u.n. special record on religious relief. epidemic proportions. we see it all around the world. in china as the government there commits atrocities gets the eagers. in sri lanka where the president silences dissenting voices. and india, as government-led crackdowns leave entire neighborhoods virtually empty. in hungary, where anti-muslim sentiment continues to build. and unfortunately, mr. speaker, i could go on all around the globe. this isn't about the actions or misguided beliefs of a few. the u.n. human rights council has found that an average of 37% of the population in europe held unfavorable views of muslims. we are talking about millions of people. a rising tide of hostility, violence, and discrimination that we, the government of the united states, must call out and
1:09 pm
condemn. to stand firmly and loudly for human rights demands nothing less. i'm also proud to announce today that we have reached a bipartisan, bicameral agreement on the eager -- uighur force labor prevention act that will allow us to move quickly to get this bill through congress and the president because this isn't a partisan issue. it's a human rights issue. and america must lead. and just as we hold other nations to account, mr. speaker, we must hold ourselves to account as well. because the united states is not immune to these trends. the council on american islamic relations has documented over 500 complaints of anti-muslim bias nationwide in just the first half of this year. that includes things like hate crimes, harassment, school bullying, and anti-mosque violence. sadly, this uptick is part of a larger trend. a poll conducted by the a.p. and released this year ahead of the
1:10 pm
anniversary of 9/11 found that 53% of americans have unfavorable views towards islam. this is the reality of what is happening in america today. and to be honest, mr. speaker, we have even heard disturbing rhetoric from some right here in this institution. a member of this house has told a completely fabricated story again and again that implies a muslim colleague is a terrorist just because they are muslim. it may have rolled off her tongue like a laugh line, but this is a deadly serious matter. because it led to our colleague, representative omar, who has already been the victim of years of anti-muslim bias, receiving even more heinous voice mails and death threats. one man went so far as to heller, i quote, there's plenty that will love the opportunity to take you off the face of this blanking earth, end quote. mr. speaker, i hesitated to even quote that here on the floor,
1:11 pm
but we all must understand the graphity of what we are -- gravity of what we are dealing with. to hear a member of this congress say those things, is there no bottom anymore, mr. speaker? have things sunk that low? two decades ago it was a republican president, george w. bush, that told the world, quote, america treasures the relationship we have with our many muslim friends. and we respect the vibrant faith of islam which inspires countless individuals to lead lives of honesty, integrity, and morality. end quote. today it is a republican congressperson who made headlines for comments that disrespect not only congresswoman omar and fellow muslim members, but is a stain on this entire institution. virtually the entire republican conference has said nothing. what on earth has the republican party become, mr. speaker? i think this house is better
1:12 pm
than the worst actions of a few here. and i think the government of the united states can still stand for human rights here and around the globe. and this rule and the underlying resolution is our chance to show it. so let's pass this measure so we can bring the full weight of our nation and encouraging other nations to also confront and condemn the growing stain of islamophobia. i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentleman is recognized. mr. reschenthaler: thank you, mr. speaker. i want to thank my good friend and chairman on the rules committee, chairman mcgovern, for yielding me the customary 30 minutes. i appreciate t i yield myself such time as i may consume. mr. speaker, in 2018 southwest earnend pennsylvania witnessed the deadly act of anti-semitism in our nation's his think tri when 11 jewish worshipers were killed in the tree life synagogue in squirrel hill. that's the first time i ever spoke on the house floor. it was to condemn acts of
1:13 pm
anti-semitism and hatred in all forms. no one should ever be attacked, no one should ever be denied their human rights or dignity because of their religious faith. republicans have opposed hate and discrimination of any kind, including islamophobia. but the bill made in order under this rule is rushed. it's a partisan effort, and it fails to address real concerns highlighted by both committee republicans and the biden state department. h.r. 5665 creates a new state department office in a new special envoy position to combat, and i quote, islamophobia and slam phobic incitement, end quote. those terms are not defined in federal statute. they are also not defined in the bill. without clear definitions, even first amendment protected speech could qualify for an investigation. under this measure, it would be up to un-elected career bureaucrats at the state department to determine what
1:14 pm
constitutes thisphobia. and to sing the out groups, single out governments, to sing the out individuals who do not share the political views of those un-elected career bureaucrats. my republican colleagues on the house foreign affairs committee rightly noted the lack of definitions in this bill could be used -- and that lack could be used to promote anti-israel sentiment. unfortunately, efforts to address those concerns were holy dismissed by -- wholly dismissed by democrats. committee republicans highlighted this bill is absolutely redundant. the state department already operates robust human rights and religious freedom efforts and those include in the list the bureau of democracy human rights and labor, the office of international religious freedom, and the u.s. commission on interacial religious freedom. international relation freedom. we already have offices for what this bill seeks to do. creating a new envoy and office
1:15 pm
would duplicate those efforts. further fragment this important advocacy. it would increase the potential for conflict and delays. and it would thwart our efforts to actually help persecuted people. but their concerns fell on deaf ears. house democrats -- if house democrats are serious about addressing anti-muslim sentiment, then i encourage them to join the long-standing republican efforts to hold the chinese communist party accountable for their genocide against the eager people. uighur people. somewhere between one and three million uighurs are currently held against their will in modern day concentration camps in communist china. these people are subjected to atrocities that include forced labor, torture, and forced organ harvesting. . women are suffering forced sterilization and forced abortion to suppress uighur
1:16 pm
muslim birth rates. anyone who truly supports religious freedom and stands against anti-muslim atrocity should want to hold the c.c.p. accountable for their genocide against the uighur people. yet, earlier this year, democratic leadership caved to the biden administration and delayed a strong u.s. response to the uighur muslim genocide rather than sending the bipartisan senate-passed uighur forced labor prevention act to the president's act. it was the biden administration who slow-walked that. last week, we were finally given the opportunity to vote on that bill, only after the press highlighted speaker pelosi's inaction. further, during the committee's consideration of h.r. 5665, democrats voted down an amendment to focus the new office's efforts on the plight of the uighurs. in closing, it's obvious this bill is not combating anti-muslim violence and persecution. if it were, house democrats would have worked with
1:17 pm
republicans in the biden state department on this effort. instead, the democrats are advancing this rushed partisan legislation that fails to address the religious persecution happening right now in china and across the globe. i urge my colleagues to oppose this rule and, mr. speaker, i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentleman from massachusetts is recognized. mr. mcgovern: well, thank you, mr. speaker. i have great respect for my friend from pennsylvania, but i want to provide a little bit of a history lesson on the uighur forced labor prevention act. we actually passed that bill a year ago in the last congress. and the republican senate and president trump killed it. i didn't hear a peep out of any of my republican colleagues urging that the senate take the bill up then. and last week, the house passed by an overwhelming vote, only one republican voted no, my bill on the uighur forced labor
1:18 pm
prevention act. and by the way, it is a stronger bill than the one that was passed in the senate. senator rubio and i have come to an agreement on reconciling the differences. that bill will be voted on, perhaps even as early as today, and be sent over to the senate where i think they will take quick action on it and send it to the president's desk for signature. that is real. that is the strongest bill to deal with the horrific treatment by the chinese government of the uighurs that has ever gone to any president's desk. and i'm proud of the bipartisan support for the bill in the house and the senate. let's not, you know, let's not politicize an issue that i think we have come together on, and my hope is it will be done today. and the bill that is before us, by the way, is very similar to
1:19 pm
the bill that was passed in the previous congress to create a post to deal with anti-semitism in this country. and i would urge my republican friends, who i hope share our view that anti-semitism is intolerable wherever it may exist and we need to do more to combat it to please call your friends in the republican senate and to stop holding up president biden's nominee for a special envoy. i'd like to ask unanimous consent to insert in the record a cnn story, senate democrats say republicans are holding up nomination for anti-semitism post. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. mcgovern: i'd like to yield two minutes to the gentlewoman from california, ms. chu. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady is recognized. ms. chu: i rise today in strong support of today's bill to help monitor and combat islamophobia. targeting someone because of
1:20 pm
their religion is discriminatory and it is dangerous. and yet, across the world, anti-muslim prejudice is spreading. as a result, innocent people are being attacked. their mosques vandalized, and their rights curtailed. all of this is the deliberate result of anti-muslim fear-mongering, often from the highest levels of government. but violence and repression would not be possible without the propaganda that paints all muslims as dangerous. we've seen that in our own country that a lie that muslims were dangerous to justify a muslim ban, and this hate speech continues to echo in the halls of congress today. even against our own members of congress. this must stop. the more these hateful lies spread, the more people will follow the words of their leaders, taking to more
1:21 pm
violence. with this bill, we can help stop the spread of this islamophobia and help stop the violence these words cause. let's ensure that everybody, regardless of race or religion, can feel safe in this country and around the world for being who they are. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady yields back. the gentleman is recognized. mr. reschenthaler: thank you, mr. speaker. i'm glad it was brought up, the so-called trump muslim ban, because it gives me a chance to set the record straight. let's be clear, the seven countries that my colleague was referring to, the seven countries specifically targeted with travel restrictions in executive order 13769, they were actually countries that were determined by congress in the obama administration to be countries of particular concern for terrorism activity pursuant to the visa waiver improvement and terrorist travel prevention
1:22 pm
act of 2017. the policies in the travel restrictions apply to just 8% of the world's muslim population and according to a pew research center, only covers one country, that country being iran. the courts even found that trump's travel ban was, and i quote, fascially neutral toward religion, end quote. the court also ruled that trump, quote, set forth this national security justification, end quote. so i thank my colleague for giving me the chance to put in the record the truth about the so-called trump ban. mr. speaker, let's talk about something that the american people are focused on right now. thanks to the biden energy crisis, americans are paying 56% more for a gallon of gas. 56% more. in pennsylvania, families are facing a 50% increase in their energy bills. biden's war on fossil fuels continues to devastate the nation this holiday season.
1:23 pm
that's why, mr. speaker, if we defeat the previous question, i will personally offer an amendment to the rule to immediately consider h.r. 6235, the strategic production response act. this legislation would require the secretary of energy to develop a plan to increase oil and gas production of federal lands if the president uses the strategic petroleum reserve for nonemergency reasons. mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent to insert the text of my amendment into the record along with any extraneous material immediately prior to the vote on the previous question. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. reschenthaler: thank you, mr. speaker. and here to explain the amendment is one of the authors of the legislation, my good friend, representative fred upton, and i yield him three minutes. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. upton: well, thank you, my friend. thank you, mr. speaker. i do rise in opposition to both the rule and the previous question so that the house can consider h.r. 6235, the strategic production response
1:24 pm
act, introduced by the top republican on the energy and commerce committee, cathy mcmorris rodgers, in recent weeks. this president and the democrats are waging a war on fossil fuels and affordable american energy. american families are paying the price in the form of skyrocketing energy bills, inflation that is surging, frankly, out of control. and we are the -- and we see that constant increase at the pump, literally every time we get in the car and pass a gas station in virtually every state in the union. before this president came into office, the u.s. was more energy secure than ever before. energy prices were low, stable. manufacturing was coming back to the u.s. after decades of offshoring. today, america's energy security is under siege by president biden and the democrats. in fact, in the span of a year, the price of crude oil in many energy commodities has risen to a seven-year high. gasoline prices have nearly
1:25 pm
doubled while more americans are struggling, certainly, to make ends meet. and forecasts even before this winter heated cost season started, american families were expected to pay some 54% more for propane, 43% more for heated oil, 30% more for natural gas, and 6% more for electric heated. even as millions of americans depend on reliable and affordable supply of fossil-based fuels for home heated, electricity, manufacturing, agriculture, democrats have doubled down their anti-american energy agenda. it was a mistake when president biden canceled the keystone x.l. pipeline which would have transported almost a million barrels of oil a day to stable energy supplies to the u.s. president biden issued a moratorium on federal lands. and now the administration is even considering line five, another important pipeline that provides critical heated fuel
1:26 pm
and gas to the midwest. yes, faced with skyrocketing energy prices and low poll numbers, this president has begged opec, of all places, opec and russia, to pay for more oil -- pump more oil. when opec and russia refused to increase supplies, guess what, president biden resorted to china, tapping the strategic petroleum reserve, rather than drilling here domestically. this president then turned to china for oil. china is persecuting uighurs, muslims and other ethnic minorities. they don't share our values. america's strategic petroleum reserve is the nation's most valuable energy security tools. and the democrats are squandering it, using it as a cover-up for their anti-fossil fuel agenda. if allowed, this motion is pretty simple. it would protect spro and lower gas prices by unleashing american energy production -- can i yield 30 seconds more?
1:27 pm
mr. reschenthaler: i yield an additional 30. mr. upton: the strategic petroleum reserve was created by congress to respond to several oil supply disruptions. not as a bailout. this administration has to end its hostility to producing energy right here under our feet, reverse the policies that have contributed to the energy crisis facing america today. if this administration is serious about lowering gas prices, it has to stop encouraging other countries and rather encourage ours to produce gas and oil rather than relying on opec, russia, and china. so i would ask my colleagues to vote no on the previous question so we can consider this resolution. i yield back the balance of my time. mr. reschenthaler: i reserve. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from massachusetts is recognized. mr. mcgovern: mr. speaker, i'm happy to yield three minutes to the gentlewoman from texas, ms. jackson lee. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields. the gentlewoman is recognized. ms. jackson lee: when the heinous acts of 9/11 came, this
1:28 pm
nation could have easily fell upon the splinters of divisiveness, begin to point fingers in a massive way toward our fellow human beings, muslims around the world, and in the united states. isn't it interesting that the president of the united states, a republican, george w. bush, took to the microphone to denounce that kind of divisive action? a republican. we came together, though there were incidents that many confronted, to hold this nation together, even with the small percentage of muslims in the united states, recognize the 1.8 billion muslims in the world. which makes up nearly 1/4 of the world's population, it is the world's second largest religion. i'm proud to be able to serve or have served with former member keith ellison, the first to be
1:29 pm
elected, congressman andre carson, rashida talib, and ilhan omar. proud to chair the pakistan caucus. the afghan caucus. and to work with people around the world, visit the mideast very often, and engage with people who wanted to have peace. so i rise today to support the rule and the underlying bill to create the position of special envoy for monitoring and combating islamophobia, responsible for tracking, coordinating efforts to combat islamophobia abroad, and to require the state department to encourage reports on human rights practices and an annual report on international religious freedom include, where possible, the assessments on the nature and extent of islamophobia. and islamophobia incitement that occurs abroad. my colleagues may take heed in recognizing the importance of
1:30 pm
all people. muslim women can choose to wear -- they wear it in front of men that are not their family members. our member, ilhan omar, wears that. it is not a sign of terrorism. and that kind of language should be denounced, whether it is on the floor of this house or in some kind of private interaction. it is a shame that the world will look at the united states as just like the others, the ones who are committing acts of atrocities against the uighurs in china or rohingya in burma or the crackdown of muslim populations in other countries, including india and sri lanka, escape cotting of -- scapegoating. muslims in new zealand and canada or the targeting of minority muslim countries like
1:31 pm
pakistan, bahrain, while we're working to ensure it does not happen. this legislation is crucial and important. . this legislation is crucial and important. the reason is, it speaks to who we are as members of the most powerful lawmaking body in the world. mr. chairman, i'm glad to sit on the tom lantos human rights commission with you. that we can talk about human rights for all people. we need to get over it and recognize that it is important to unify the world. let the united states be the leader for what is right. and to be able to acknowledge the doctors and lawyers and other leaders in our nation that happen to be muslim. so this legislation gives the united states the right hand, the upper hand to be able to assess this around the world and be the leader against anti-hate or anti-muslim hate. let's be the leader rather than
1:32 pm
the provoker of it. and i lead -- end by saying this plea to my colleagues. whether you are republican or democrat, is this, in essence, the reputation you want to give to this congress that we are attacking people for their religion and who they are? let this build pass. let it be a symbol that we will stop this kind of islamophobia and it starts with each and every one of us. i ask my colleagues to vote for the rule and the underlying bill. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from pennsylvania is recognized. mr. reschenthaler: thank you, mr. speaker. my good friend and colleague from texas mentioned george w. bush in her remarks. that's certainly a blast from the past. i was too young to even vote for president bush when i was -- when he was running in the primary. i say that respectfully to my good friend from texas. while we are are talking about blasts from the past, the americans are now paying -- the american people have not paid
1:33 pm
this much at the pump since the last time biden was in the white house. it's true. the national average of gasoline is currently $3.32. americans are paying 54% more nationally for a gallon of gas. in some parts of the united states, the price for a gallon of gas has reached $7.59 a gallon. with biden in the white house, we are repeating ourselves once again. a blast from the past. the american people are, unfortunately, paying every day at the gas pump. to talk about that i yield my good friend from oklahoma, mr. mullin, two minutes. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. mullin: thank you, mr. chairman. what we are seeing here from the democrats is just trying to -- a distraction. trying to distract the american people from what's really happening. what is it the american people are upset about? what is it they are concerned about? how about what they are paying? we can talk about the groceries, we can talk about what they are paying at the gas pump. let's talk about that. if we are really serious about
1:34 pm
doing something that's important to the american people, talk about h.r. 6235, to address the high energy prices our country is seesmght gas prices are at a seven-year high. on november 23, the biden administration announced the department of energy will sell 50 million barrels out of the strategic president trump in an -- petroleum in an attempt to bring down gas prices. what a joke. we consume roughly $20 billion a day -- 20 billion gallons -- barrels, sorry. 20 billion barrels a day in the united states. say we are going to release 50 bill out of the strategic petroleum supply that that's nothing like another game. like this bail bill debating nothing but smoke and mirrors. trying to distract the american people to say we are fighting, we are trying to do something. h.r. 6235 would require the secretary of energy to develop a plan to increase oil and gas production on federal lands in conjunction with drawing down
1:35 pm
the oil from strategic petroleum reserves. if any president attempts to tap in to that for political reasons, the strategic production response act would require a plan to increase u.s. energy production at the same time. the s.p.r. would establish by congress to respond to an emergency. not to manipulate gasoline prices. the administration's anti-fossil fuel agenda is contributing to the record high energy prices which is driving up inflation and household bills. it's projected to cost some families up to 54% more to heat their homes this winter. if president biden and the democrats want to be serious about billing down -- bringing down costs to families, they would stop the attack on american petroleum. i urge my colleagues to defeat the previous question. i take up this -- take up this bill. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentleman is recognized. mr. mcgone: mr. speaker -- mr. mcgovern: we are considering the combating international
1:36 pm
islamophobia act right now. my good friend from pennsylvania in the very beginning made reference to the fact that republicans are all united in condemning hate and prejudice and bigotry wherever if exists. it exists. i want to point out why this bill is so important is because the last republican president that we had kind of, unfortunately, it was like gasoline on a fire in terms of promoting islamophobia. in 2015, donald trump said, he would look at closing mosques in the united states. that same year, he was opened to the idea of creating a database of all u.s. muslims. as president he instituted a muslim ban. so that is the republican party's recent history in terms of combating islamophobia. instead of combating it, he, again, threw gasoline on the fire and fanned the flames.
1:37 pm
so the reason why this is important is so we can show the world that that's not who we are. that we reject bigotry and hatred and discrimination and prejudice wherever it exists. and the statistics are clear. we see a rising tide of islamophobia all throughout the world. so i urge -- this should not be controversial. this should be a suspension. that it has been politicized by some of my friends on the other side of the aisle is unfortunate. but i hope that some of them will, at the end, join with us in voting to pass it. i reserve my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentleman is recognized. mr. reschenthaler: thank you, mr. speaker. i yield my good friend and fellow rules committee member, dr. burgess from the great state of texas, three minutes. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. burgess: i thank the gentleman for yielding. if we defeat the previous question, we will immediately consider the strategic prescription drugs response act -- strategic response act
1:38 pm
which would require a plan to increase energy production on federal lands if oil in the strategic petroleum reserve is used without a severe energy intlie interruption. supply interruption. in november the biden administration announced release of 50 million barrels of oil from the strategic petroleum reserve to manipulate the market and address high energy prices that were created by his policies. on his first day in office president biden weakened america's energy independence by rejoining the paris climate aagreement. killing the keystone pipeline. these are a few examples of how this president's policies have slowed our nation's economic recovery and will prevent us from reclaiming true energy independence. releasing oil from the strategic petroleum reserve without an emergency declaration is unprecedented. no severe supply disruption exists. only a president who seeks to enact radical green new deal
1:39 pm
policies. low presidential approval ratings are not the emergency that congress envisioned when the strategic petroleum reserve was established in 1975. the path to affordable energy is simple. increase supply to meet demand. congress must reverse the policies that limit production of energy here at home. clean energy is a priority for all americans, but hurting domestic producers will only increase our nation's dependence on products from russia, china, middle east which are inherently less clean than american energy. in conclusion, the strategic petroleum response act ensures a plan is in place to increase energy production before any president may use the strategic petroleum reserve for purely political purposes. i urge my colleagues to vote no on the previous question so we can consider this amendment. i yield back my time to the gentleman from pennsylvania. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentleman is recognized. mr. mcgovern: mr. speaker, i want to ask unanimous consent to
1:40 pm
insert in the record a september 7 associated press article entitled two decades after 9/11, muslim americans still fighting bias. mr. speaker, a recent poll released in september mentioned earlier found 53% of americans hold negative you views of muslims. 53%. islamophobia isn't a problem abroad. we need to combat it here at home as well. i also well ask unanimous consent to insert in the record a december 9 report released by the department of justice entitled 2020 hate crimes statistics. mr. speaker, according to the f.b.i. statistics, in 2020 there were 110 anti-muslim incidents and there were an additional 89 hate crimes against sikhs often rightly identified as muslim. we know that hate crimes often go underreported. so the actual mum is much likely higher. which is another reason why i think passing this bill is important. i'd like to ask unanimous consent to insert into the record a december 10 business insider article entitled house
1:41 pm
republicans mocked ilhan omar's bill to establish an envoy to combat islamophobia worldwide. i don't know what the hell is going on in some corners of the republican conference to have republican members mock this bill as they did during a recent committee hearing is disgusting. this is no laughing matter. in fact, it is a matter of life and death. we are talking about violence, death threats, bullying, desecrating mosques, and worse. instances like that just show why we need to pass this bill. again my republican friends as they do oftentimes when we have important matters like this up, they want to talk about everything except what is on the floor. but the reason why this is important is because i think we should show the world that we speak with one voice. that we are against hatred. that we are against bigotry. that we will not stand by silently in the face of islamophobia. that we want to be an example and we want to lead the rest of the world. with that i reserve my time.
1:42 pm
the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the requests are granted. without objection, the gentleman from pennsylvania is recognized. mr. reschenthaler: thank you, mr. speaker. i'd like to yield the republican whip, my good friend from louisiana, because he's the whip, as much time he may consume. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. scalise: thank you, mr. speaker. i thank my freend friend there pennsylvania for yielding -- i thank my friend from pennsylvania for yielding. i rise in support of the underlying legislation that we are trying to bring to the floor which, if we defeat the previous question, would actually come up to confront a major problem facing families. if you look over the last few weeks, this congress has done a lot of things. spent a lot of money. the bill just two weeks ago to raise over $4.5 trillion in taxes and new spending, which would fuel inflation even higher. what families across america are telling us is why doesn't congress work for those families who are struggling? why doesn't congress work to confront the challenges they are facing every single day? seems like this majority's tone deaf to the real problems that
1:43 pm
are hurting families today. it's inflation. it's the spending in washington that's driving that inflation. one of those leading indicators is the high price of gasoline. because it's something that maybe multiple times a week for families they have to go fill up their car and they pay over $150 to do it. they can't afford it. so we have a bill to actually do something about that. something we haven't seen on this floor. for weeks. a bill to actually confront a crisis that was created by this president, which, unfortunately, there are crises after crises that have been created by president biden. one of those is an energy crisis. self-created by president biden. when he walked in the door prices were 40% to 60% less for gasoline. when you go to the grocery store everything is more expensive. if you are shopping for christmas things are more expensive, if you can find those gifts that you want to put under the tree. so here we bring a bill if we are able to defeat this previous
1:44 pm
question to confront one of these challenges. that's how this president has abused the strategic petroleum reserve. the strategic petroleum reserve is not supposed to be a biggie bank to cover up for the failed policies of the biden administration. that's what they have done. when you saw the president the other day, had an increase in prices because people recognized this president isn't serious about addressing the problem. this bill by republican leader mcmorris rodgers of the energy and commerce committee, myself, and others would force the department of interior and energy to confront this crisis. when president biden goes and begs opec and russia to produce more oil, how about we start here at home where we have a surplus? we were exporting oil to our friends all around the world helping our friends geopolitically. that was undermined when president biden cut off the keystone pipeline. cut off production on federal
1:45 pm
lands. he green lighted the russian pipeline. he begged opec to produce more oil. which by the way emits more carbon if that's what you are concerned about. mr. speaker, why don't we focus on those things that will help american jobs and help lower carbon emissions that's producing more american energy. you know what else it does? it lowers the price of gasoline. i urge rejection of the previous question and i yield back the balance of my time. . mr. mcgovern: i reserve my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from pennsylvania is recognized. mr. reschenthaler: thank you, mr. speaker. i appreciate it. i yield to my great friend from the state of texas, mr. crenshaw. two minutes. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. crenshaw: mr. speaker, it's a season of misplaced priorities. labor shortages, open borders, and foreign policy blunders. my colleagues seem to think that islamophobia is what americans care about.
1:46 pm
i'd rather talk about something that americans actually care about, gassing up their cars and keeping the heat on. november, president biden said, quote, the reason americans are facing high gas prices is because oil-producing countries and large companies have not ramped up the supply of oil quickly enough to meet the demand and the smaller demand means higher price. it's true. he's not making the point he thinks there is. the lack of production but the question is why. why is the number one oil producer is able to ramp up production and that's simple. joe biden has made it a priority to kill the american oil industry. they canceled the keystone pipeline. outlawed federal and gas leases and putting a burden on production that any biden recognizes is needed. of course, most recently, with my help from my colleagues in texas on the democratic side, they passed a tax on natural gas as part of their socialist
1:47 pm
spending package. it gets more interesting. in a letter to speaker pelosi, seven texas democrats put the natural gas tax in stark terms saying this tax will cost thousands of jobs, stifle economic recovery, increase energy costs for all americans, strengthen our adversaries, and impede the transition to a lower carbon future. very strong and very true words from my democrat colleagues. guess what, they voted for it anyways. now democrats are scrambling because they know americans are starting to feel the pain of their policies. it's gotten so bad that democrats are celebrating a two cent decline in gas prices. oh, thank you, joe biden, for the two cent decline. it would be funny if it weren't so serious. it would be funny if it weren't so serious that the energy secretary doesn't even know that their plan to release from the strategic petroleum reserve is only about two days' worth of oil. there's nothing funny about this. and the administration responds by telling people to put on a sweater and buy an electric
1:48 pm
vehicle. i yield back. mr. reschenthaler: i reserve. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentleman is recognized. the gentleman from massachusetts is recognized. mr. mcgovern: mr. speaker, you know, it we face a lot of challenges in this country. in large part we're still trying to come out of a pandemic that the previous administration tried to ignore. we actually have done some good things. we passed a major infrastructure bill. in the previous administration we had infrastructure week and infrastructure month and a press conference. but we actually passed a real infrastructure bill with bipartisan support over in the senate and a handful of republicans here. to the previous speaker, to suggest that the american people don't care about islamophobia i think is insulting. i mean, say that to the muslim student being bullied in a classroom because of their faith or say that to a muslim worshipper at a mosque that's been attacked or say that to a muslim family that's been
1:49 pm
belittled because of ignorance is being promoted by some, including some in this chamber. i mean, please. the american people are good and decent. they do not want to accept prejudice and bigotry and hate and discrimination. they expect better. and we heard some talk earlier about the uighurs and we have to do more with the uighurs, which we are doing, but i got a little whiplash saying we need to move faster to combat the atrocities against the muslim uighur population but then on the other hand we're told that nobody cares. you can't have it both ways. but to suggest that the american people are in different to prejudice is something i won't accept. i reserve my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentleman is recognized. mr. reschenthaler: thank you, mr. speaker. i didn't anticipate that we were going to talk about the pandemic, but since we're on the topic, let's just get one thing clear. there's been more deaths from
1:50 pm
this pandemic under president biden than president trump. and president trump put together operation warp speed to get a vaccine to market incredibly quick. record breaking time. more deaths under president biden than president trump. so who is really ignoring the pandemic? let's talk about the uighurs. the chinese openly and proudly refer to uighur concentration camps as re-education camps. it's almost -- it's a sin how the chinese are trying to cover up the modern day concentration camps they have. they claim they're necessary to, quote, rid them of terrorists and extremist meanings. in these camps you have torture like sleep deprivation, people being hung from walls, people being locked in what's called a tiger chair, a steel chair with a fixed chair, iron and handcuffs that put their bodies in mobile positions. chinese officials have a
1:51 pm
week-long burn fire to burn these documents. it's time we call out the chinese government. when we're talking about legislation -- when we're talking about legislation on this point, it's actually the -- it's actually the speaker that slow-walked legislation by as much as five months. let me explain the legislative history. the senate passed the uighur forced labor camps in 2021, july, unanimously. that was in the senate. top house democrats pointed to a procedural issue and finally passed the bill in december. again, a five-month delay for what? well, according to reports, the speaker slow-walked this bill at the request of the biden administration who prioritized climate administration and reforms over human rights violations in china. further, the biden administration asked that the bill be watered-down. truly disgusting when you look
1:52 pm
at the human rights violations going on in china. but mr. speaker, i'd like to yield to my good friend from georgia, mrs. greene, two minutes. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady from georgia is recognized. mrs. greene: thank you. mr. speaker, i rise in opposition to the islamophobia bill. one thing that seems to be missing from this bill is the definition of islamophobia. what this bill does is it sets up through the state department an envoy to monitor and combat acts of islamophobia and islamophobic incitement that occurs in foreign countries. this is in foreign countries and the state department's monitoring and combating these acts. this is what we need to talk about. what does that exactly mean? if we pass this resolution, does that mean our state department is going to be monitoring how israel responds when rockets are being fired from hamas into
1:53 pm
israel? if they defend themselves, does that mean the state department is going to combat their actions because it will be considered islamophobic? more questions need to be asked. in europe there are no zones with high crime statistics. as a matter of fact, rape issed a modern occurrence that happens all the time in these no go zones. so if women are raped by muslims in no go zones and they want to file charges against them, is our state department going to be monitoring those trials and then combating these women's defense because they're claiming it's islamophobic because muslim men raped them and that becomes part of the conversation? what exactly does this mean? and why is our state department taking this on? it shouldn't be. as a matter of fact, this is a bill that we should not be debating. this is a bill we should not be voting on because the united states' state department doesn't
1:54 pm
need to be monitoring and combating islamophobia when it's not even defined in the bill for foreign countries. not the united states of america. i've heard a lot of conversation from my colleagues across the aisle about islamophobia in america, which we completely are against hate of any kind against anyone. and that's why we have laws against such hateful crimes and actions. but monitoring what's happening in foreign countries, which the state department does, doesn't mean that it needs to combat islamophobia when it's not even defined in the bill. mr. reschenthaler: i yield an additional 15 seconds. mrs. greene: thank you. this is a vote for every single person in congress should be no because this is an open door with no end to the book of where this can go for the united states of america. this is a role we should not be engaging in. i yield back.
1:55 pm
the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentleman is recognized. mr. mcgovern: i appreciate the fact that the gentleman yielded to the gentlelady more time because that made absolutely no sense to me, mr. speaker. and let me just say to the gentleman from pennsylvania on the uighur thing. let repeat the history again so it's clear to him. a year ago we passed the uighur forced labor prevention act in the house. it went over to the senate. mitch mcconnell and donald trump killed it. nobody, nobody said a word. the bill that passed last week, the gentleman refers to, is my bill. and the bill that we're going to take up later today is my bill that we negotiated the differences between the house and senate with senator rubio. the gentleman would be happy to know that the bill we're passing today is stronger than the senate-passed version. maybe he'd refer a weaker version because that's what a lot of corporations that are very friendly to my republican friends are now lobbying very
1:56 pm
hard for. a watered-down bill. so this bill is not watered-down. it's a stronger bill than passed the senate. i would even like it to be stronger, but please, don't -- don't politicize human rights in a way where i think, to be fair, my friend is mischaracterizing what the history of this issue is. and i don't take a backseat to anybody when it comes to human rights or human rights when it comes to the uighurs. we've been fighting for this for a long time. we finally have a speaker of the house and the president of the united states who will sign this bill when it gets there. i want to thank the leadership in the senate. i want to thank senator rubio. i want to thank congressman smith here in the house, ranking member mccaul, and chairman meeks for their cooperation. but we are moving a bill forward that has teeth, that is real, that is tough, that is the strongest bill we ever passed on
1:57 pm
this. and -- but please don't politicize it. i've been working on this too long. i reserve my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from massachusetts reserves. the gentleman from pennsylvania is recognized. mr. reschenthaler: thank you, mr. speaker. i have no further speakers at this time, and i'm prepared to close. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. reschenthaler: i yield myself such time as i may consume. i'd like to applaud chairman mcgovern for his work on this piece of legislation. i'd like to applaud senator rubio, of course, and my colleague, mr. smith of new jersey for working on this legislation. and just to clarify, when i was talking about the watered-down version that the administration was trying to water down, i was talking about the senate version of this bill. if i misspoke, i want to clarify the record now, that's what i was speaking to. again, i applaud anybody that's working on holding the chinese communist party accountable for the atrocities they're committing on the uighurs. let me be clear about something, house republicans will continue to stand against all forms of
1:58 pm
hate, including islamophobia. we will continue to stand with uighurs in china and with all people experiencing religious persecution. unfortunately, h.r. 5665, this piece of legislation, is a rushed bill. it presents serious first amendment concerns. it will complicate existing efforts to protect human rights and religious freedom around the globe. it's also incredibly duplicative. we already have the bureau of democracy, human rights and labor. we already have the office of international religious freedom. we already have the office of u.s. commission on international religious freedom. we already have institutions and bodies that are focused on this. for those reasons, i urge my colleagues to vote no on the previous question and no on the rule. thank you and i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields the balance. the gentleman from massachusetts is recognized. mr. mcgovern: thank you, mr. speaker. and let me just say, again, that
1:59 pm
this really shouldn't be controversial at all. and i'm sad that it is being politicized by some of my friends on the other side of the aisle. you know, we heard one objection after the next of this bill which condemns islamophobia as if somehow condemning islamophobia is some sort of radical idea. you know, i never thought i'd yearn for the republicanism of george w. bush. but maybe things have gotten so out of control of the republican party today that members can't stand here and publicly defend a muslim from bullying or worse. i pray that's not the case. some things are about more than petty partisanship and toeing the party line. this should be one of them. we have kids bullied in school, hate crimes on the rise and mosques targeted. around the world they are forced into detention camps and
2:00 pm
