Dick Durbin said : “One-hundred-and-eleven years ago, a young mother in Jurbarkas said goodbye to everyone and everything she had ever known, gathered her three small children, and sailed for America, to join her husband. In her arms, she carried their youngest child – a 2-year-old daughter. That little girl, Ona Kutkaite, was my mother. My mother never saw this beautiful land of her birth again. But she carried Lithuania in her heart. She prayed for Lithuania’s freedom. And she taught her three children to be proud of our Lithuanian heritage. If my mother were here today to see her son accept this honor named for President Stulginskis, one of Lithuania’s great patriots, she would be astonished – and deeply moved. As am I,” External link

Dick Durbin said : “It’s no secret that the Federal Bureau of Prisons has been plagued by misconduct. One investigation after another has revealed a culture of abuse, mismanagement, corruption, torture, and death that reaches all the way to the top. One of the most troubling investigations was published last week by National Public Radio and the Marshall Project. The title of the report reads, ‘How the newest federal prison became one of the deadliest,’” “The opening of U.S. Penitentiary Thomson was supposed to improve safety within the Bureau of Prisons, but the reality sadly has been the exact opposite. According to this report, seven inmates at U.S. Penitentiary Thomson have died in just two years. Five of them were reportedly murdered by other inmates, two died by suicide. And those deaths are just a snapshot of the grim reality of this facility, the deadly grim reality” External link

Dick Durbin said : “But this report about U.S. Penitentiary Thomson is only the most recent look into the house of horrors that is the Bureau of Prisons, the Federal Bureau of Prisons. We already have ample evidence of a pattern of neglect and abuse that’s been embedded in their bureaucracy… The continued overuse of restricted housing and the alleged abuses at Thomson are among the many instances of misconduct, mismanagement that have occurred under the failed leadership of Bureau of Prisons Director Michael Carvajal. In light of those earlier reports detailing similar failures, I called for Mr. Carvajal’s resignation last November. So it was welcome news [that] about six weeks after I asked for his resignation, he announced it. Director Carvajal said he was going to resign. But that was January. Now we’re in June and the Justice Department has shown little progress or urgency in naming Carvajal’s replacement. As a result, he is still running and mismanaging the Bureau of Prisons,” “This recent investigation into Thomson makes it clear there are no excuses for further delay. So today I’m calling on President Biden, Attorney General Garland, and Deputy Attorney General Monaco to do one of two things: either name a new, reform-minded director to replace Carvajal immediately or appoint an acting director until a permanent selection is made. This cannot wait. We need to act before another inmate dies in the custody and care of this federal government” External link

In her arms, she carried their youngest child – a 2-year-old daughter. That little girl, Ona Kutkaite, was my mother. My mother never saw this beautiful land of her birth again. But she carried Lithuania in her heart. She prayed for Lithuania’s freedom. And she taught her three children to be proud of our Lithuanian heritage. If my mother were here today to see her son accept this honor named for President Stulginskis, one of Lithuania’s great patriots, she would be astonished – and deeply moved. As am I,” External link

Dick Durbin said : “It’s no secret that the Federal Bureau of Prisons has been plagued by misconduct. One investigation after another has revealed a culture of abuse, mismanagement, corruption, torture, and death that reaches all the way to the top. One of the most troubling investigations was published last week by National Public Radio and the Marshall Project. The title of the report reads, ‘How the newest federal prison became one of the deadliest,’” “The opening of U.S. Penitentiary Thomson was supposed to improve safety within the Bureau of Prisons, but the reality sadly has been the exact opposite. According to this report, seven inmates at U.S. Penitentiary Thomson have died in just two years. Five of them were reportedly murdered by other inmates, two died by suicide. And those deaths are just a snapshot of the grim reality of this facility, the deadly grim reality” External link

Dick Durbin said : “But this report about U.S. Penitentiary Thomson is only the most recent look into the house of horrors that is the Bureau of Prisons, the Federal Bureau of Prisons. We already have ample evidence of a pattern of neglect and abuse that’s been embedded in their bureaucracy… The continued overuse of restricted housing and the alleged abuses at Thomson are among the many instances of misconduct, mismanagement that have occurred under the failed leadership of Bureau of Prisons Director Michael Carvajal. In light of those earlier reports detailing similar failures, I called for Mr. Carvajal’s resignation last November. So it was welcome news [that] about six weeks after I asked for his resignation, he announced it. Director Carvajal said he was going to resign. But that was January. Now we’re in June and the Justice Department has shown little progress or urgency in naming Carvajal’s replacement. As a result, he is still running and mismanaging the Bureau of Prisons,” “This recent investigation into Thomson makes it clear there are no excuses for further delay. So today I’m calling on President Biden, Attorney General Garland, and Deputy Attorney General Monaco to do one of two things: either name a new, reform-minded director to replace Carvajal immediately or appoint an acting director until a permanent selection is made. This cannot wait. We need to act before another inmate dies in the custody and care of this federal government” External link

Dick Durbin wrote ( about Great Recession ) : “As our nation continues to recover from the pandemic, economic uncertainly looms over your students’ postsecondary education decisions—likely causing many of your students to reevaluate their plans… For-profit colleges pounce on economic uncertainty to exploit students who are trying to better their future through education. We’ve seen it before—most recently during the Great Recession. They spent massively on marketing, bombarding students with misleading advertisements. Owners and investors lined their pockets while students paid exorbitantly high tuition in exchange for often worthless degrees… For-profit schools are using the same tactics today,” External link

That’s why I secured this new federal funding to support the University in helping train our region’s nursing workforce,” “I am particularly excited by the fact that Bradley University will further use this funding to partner with local high schools to attract our younger students to the nursing profession.
