Mr. Speaker,

For too long, calls for Congress to pass common sense gun control measures, heart-filled appeals from concerned Americans of all ages and ideologies, including gun owners, have fallen on deaf ears.

Mr. Speaker,

We shouldn’t allow terrorists who want to kill innocent Americans to have easy access to guns. It’s just that simple, and that’s just common sense.

Mr. Speaker,

As Republicans bicker behind closed doors, the deadline to raise the debt limit draws closer and closer.

If we fail to act in time, interest rates will skyrocket, the dollar will plummet, and the stock market could collapse.

That’s unacceptable – it’s time to bring this manufactured crisis to an end.

Mr. Speaker:

As we close Hispanic Heritage month and look back at our community’s history and ongoing challenges, I rise today to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics.

For 25 years, the Initiative has played an important role in advancing the dialogue and policies that have helped our community move forward.

Hello, I’m Congressman Ruben Gallego.

Each year from September 15th to October 15th, we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. 

We honor the history, culture and contributions of the Latino community to the United States. 

Like all Americans, Latino families work hard in pursuit of the American Dream.

Mr. Speaker,

Monday marked the 122nd year that we have honored and celebrated the hard working men and women of America on Labor Day. 

It’s also an occasion to reflect on the tremendous progress that the labor movement has made in improving the lives of working families.
