Dick Durbin said : “The Senate Judiciary Committee has a constitutional responsibility to oversee the Department of Justice on behalf of the American people,” “But yesterday, the Minority Leader came to the Senate floor to warn the Judiciary Committee against exercising our oversight responsibilities because it could become, quote, ‘a partisan circus.’ This came on the heels of Senator McConnell’s personal veto of the bipartisan commission to investigate the deadly January 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol by insurrectionists. But now the Minority Leader is warning us against even looking into the targeting of Trump’s perceived political enemies by the Justice Department. The Minority Leader claimed the Senate does not need to look into this matter because the DOJ Inspector General has announced he would investigate. This argument is beyond hypocritical” External link

In some cases workers arrive to the fields in tightly packed trucks and their crews reportedly share cups of water from the same cup during the day.

Lisa Murkowski said ( about Dick Durbin ) : “This legislation does not change how federal tax money is spent. It provides a technical fix by directing additional non-taxpayers dollars from criminal monetary penalties into the fund. So, we’re sitting at a point where the longer Congress delays this fix, the larger the cuts that victims services in my state and all around the country will face,” “This has been a hard time for us. I think we recognize it. But for those who are trying to serve victims, those that are trying to serve the most vulnerable at an exceptionally vulnerable time in their lives—it makes it ten times harder. Our providers are exhausted. They are burnt out. And now they are faced with massive cuts. We simply cannot fail them. So, I would urge us. Can we look past the politics on this? This is what these victims’ advocates are saying: ‘Please don’t use us as the political lever here.’ And so I join not only with Senator Durbin but also with the many in this body who would urge that we pass this technical fix to VOCA” External link

Dick Durbin said : “The Senate Judiciary Committee has a constitutional responsibility to oversee the Department of Justice on behalf of the American people,” “But yesterday, the Minority Leader came to the Senate floor to warn the Judiciary Committee against exercising our oversight responsibilities because it could become, quote, ‘a partisan circus.’ This came on the heels of Senator McConnell’s personal veto of the bipartisan commission to investigate the deadly January 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol by insurrectionists. But now the Minority Leader is warning us against even looking into the targeting of Trump’s perceived political enemies by the Justice Department. The Minority Leader claimed the Senate does not need to look into this matter because the DOJ Inspector General has announced he would investigate. This argument is beyond hypocritical” External link

Dick Durbin said : “According to the Environmental Working Group, more than a dozen states don’t provide any form of PPE or COVID testing for farm workers, and there are no social distancing guidelines in place on these farms. In some cases workers arrive to the fields in tightly packed trucks and their crews reportedly share cups of water from the same cup during the day.

But these essential workers don’t have the luxury of being able to advocate for themselves because they are always under the shadow and risk of deportation.

Dick Durbin said : “For far too long, freight railroads have taken preference over passenger rail, resulting in poor on-time performance and delays for Amtrak riders.

Illinoisans – and Amtrak riders across the country – deserve the assurance that they will arrive at their destinations in a safe and timely manner” External link

Lisa Murkowski said ( about Dick Durbin ) : “This legislation does not change how federal tax money is spent. It provides a technical fix by directing additional non-taxpayers dollars from criminal monetary penalties into the fund. So, we’re sitting at a point where the longer Congress delays this fix, the larger the cuts that victims services in my state and all around the country will face,” “This has been a hard time for us. I think we recognize it. But for those who are trying to serve victims, those that are trying to serve the most vulnerable at an exceptionally vulnerable time in their lives—it makes it ten times harder. Our providers are exhausted. They are burnt out. And now they are faced with massive cuts. We simply cannot fail them. So, I would urge us. Can we look past the politics on this? This is what these victims’ advocates are saying: ‘Please don’t use us as the political lever here.’ And so I join not only with Senator Durbin but also with the many in this body who would urge that we pass this technical fix to VOCA” External link
