Indiana Republicans ask Obama for info on undocumented minors

2014/08/04

WASHINGTON — Indiana’s congressional Republicans joined Gov. Mike Pence on Friday in asking the Obama administration for more information about unaccompanied Central American children living in Indiana. In a letter to President Barack Obama sent days after Pence made a similar request, the GOP members of the delegation said the administration has failed to consult and inform state and local officials about the children living in Indiana while they await immigration proceedings for illegally crossing the border. “Currently we do not know with whom the children are being placed and if their health and safety can be guaranteed,” Rep. Susan Brooks wrote in a letter co-signed by the state’s seven other congressional Republicans. To read more of the Indy Star's coverage click here. Read More

Brooks: Plan Supports Overburdened States, Addresses Humanitarian and Security Needs

2014/08/04

Congresswoman Susan W. Brooks (R-IN5) released the following statement after voting in favor of the House proposal to reunite unaccompanied minors crossing the southern border with their families in their home countries:  “I believe the unaccompanied minors crossing our southern border should be treated with dignity and compassion and returned to their home countries as soon as possible. Today, the House passed a proposal that provides the legislative framework, immediate humanitarian assistance and border protection resources necessary to begin making this happen. It’s disappointing the Senate adjourned without passing a single piece of legislation to address this crisis. I applaud House Leadership for working through this difficult issue and ensuring legislation was passed. Our plan takes action to support overburdened states and meet the urgent needs of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, U.S. Customs and Border Protection and these unaccompanied children. The House has put together a smart roadmap for solving this current crisis and discouraging Central American families from sending their children on the dangerous journey to our southern border.” The legislation was passed by the House this evening and appropriates a total of $694 million through the end of the fiscal year on September 30, 2014 to support security and humanitarian efforts. This total is well below the President’s $3.7 billion request. The funding allocated represents unspent current fiscal year money ensuring the deficit is not increased. The legislation makes changes to the 2008 Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act that will allow for unaccompanied minors to be expedited through the judicial system and returned to their families in their home country sooner. Necessary funding is also set aside to ensure the children are housed, fed and otherwise well-cared for in the time being. Significant steps are also taken to address the urgent security needs present at the southern border. A sum of $405 million is appropriated to the Department of Homeland Security to assist border security and law enforcement activities. Of that total, $334 million is appropriated to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to provide for upgraded detention space, expedited migrant processing and additional deportation and enforcement personnel. Additional resources are also devoted to ensure the National Guard can be deployed to the border at no cost to individual states.   Read More

Brooks, Hoosier Lawmakers Request Information from HHS on Unaccompanied Children in Indiana Communities

2014/08/04

Congresswoman Susan W. Brooks (R-IN5) today sent a letter signed by eight members of Indiana’s congressional delegation calling on the Department of Health and Human Services to provide up-to-date and congressional district specific information on the 245 unaccompanied alien children (UAC) sent to reside in the Hoosier state. “Up-to-date and transparent information is needed to properly accommodate the needs of both UACs and local communities,” the members wrote. “Currently we do not know with whom the children are being placed and if their health and safety can be guaranteed.  We ask that you properly disseminate information to all applicable stakeholders in a prompt and comprehensible way.” The letter is a follow-up to one sent by Governor Mike Pence to President Obama on Wednesday requesting similar information on children sent to Indiana between between January 1, 2014 and July 7, 2014. In addition to Representative Brooks, the letter is signed by Senator Dan Coats (R-IN) and Representatives Larry Bucshon (R-IN8), Luke Messer (R-IN6), Todd Rokita (R-IN4), Marlin Stutzman (R-IN3), Jackie Walorski (R-IN2) and Todd Young (R-IN9). “Most especially with school starting soon, our constituents must have relevant information allowing them to assess potential challenges to their school corporations and make sure these children are treated compassionately,” Brooks said. “We also must know sponsors are committed to providing a safe and caring environment for these children and will ensure they attend immigration proceedings that will reunite them with their families in their home countries. I am hopeful this group effort will compel HHS to adequately respond to these requests soon.”   To learn more about Congresswoman Brooks, please visit: www.SusanWBrooks.house.gov.   Full Text of Letter to HHS August 1, 2014   Eskinder Negash Director Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) Wage and Hour Division U.S. Department of Health and Human Services 370 L'Enfant Promenade, S.W. Washington, D.C. 20447 Dear Director Negash: This week Indiana’s Governor Mike Pence sent a letter to President Obama saying he was never informed about the 245 unaccompanied alien children (UAC) sent to reside in Indiana after crossing our southern border.  Governor Pence only learned of the situation through news accounts.  Disappointingly, the Administration’s current response is that the state will only be updated on a monthly basis of the number of UAC residing in Indiana. We feel that failure to consult and inform state and local officials is counterproductive to solving this humanitarian crisis and ultimately harmful to the long term care of these children.  Our state executives and congressional delegation need access to the most up-to-date information our federal government can provide. Up-to-date and transparent information is needed to properly accommodate the needs of both UACs and local communities. Currently we do not know with whom the children are being placed and if their health and safety can be guaranteed.  We ask that you properly disseminate information to all applicable stakeholders in a prompt and comprehensible way. Additionally, in order to make more informed decisions about the scope and gravity of this problem in our own communities, we request a breakdown of UAC resettlement by congressional district. Finally, on July 9th, Juan P. Osuna, the director of the Executive Office for Immigration Review, told the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee that 46 percent of juveniles currently fail to show up for their date in court. This is an unacceptable statistic.  With this in mind, we request information on what actions the ORR is performing to ensure the ‘sponsors’ with whom the children are being placed are complying with all of the follow up hearings and immigration law requirements. We recognize that this is an incredibly tumultuous and trying time for your agency, but neglecting key stakeholders only exacerbates this problem that we are all hoping to solve in the most humane, effective and efficient way possible. Thank you for your service and your swift response to this letter. Read More

Bipartisan coalition of House members introduce Campus Accountability and Safety Act to combat sexual assault at colleges and universities

2014/08/04

WASHINGTON – A bipartisan coalition of 18 House members today introduced the House version of the Campus Accountability and Safety Act. The legislation mirrors a bill introduced in the Senate yesterday, which takes aim at sexual assaults on college and university campuses by protecting and empowering students, strengthening accountability and transparency for institutions and establishing stiff penalties for non-compliance with the legislation’s new standards for training, data and best practices. The House effort is being championed by a bipartisan coalition led by Reps. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), Patrick Meehan (R-PA), Cheri Bustos (D-IL), Ted Poe (R-TX), Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR), Susan Brooks (R-IN), Gwen Moore (D-WI), Renee Ellmers (R-NC), Lynn Jenkins (R-KS), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Tom Reed (R-NY), Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA), Kristi Noem (R-SD), Bobby Scott (D-VA), Lois Frankel (D-FL), David Joyce (OH-14), Annie Kuster (D-NH), and Gary Peters (D-MI). The bipartisan Campus Accountability and Safety Act will make it in the schools’ immediate best interest to take proactive steps to protect their students and rid their campuses of sexual predators. “The way colleges and universities currently address sexual assault is failing students,” said Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney. “We have to do more to prevent sexual assaults, empower survivors and ensure that academic institutions are responsive to the needs of students. I applaud the work of our colleagues in the Senate. They have crafted a comprehensive and bipartisan bill. I am hopeful that the House will take up this effort in tandem with the Senate so that we can put a bill on the President’s desk.” “The current patchwork of federal law and regulation is not sufficient to address sexual assault on American campuses” said Congressman Patrick Meehan. “This bipartisan legislation strengthens the partnership between schools and law enforcement. It enhances training standards for on-campus personnel. And it will help victims access confidential advisors who can provide support in the wake of an assault. It’s an important step forward in the effort to protect our kids on campus and support victims. I would like to thank the members of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Campus Violence Advisory Council for their input and experience, which informed many of the provisions of this bill.” “I am proud to be a part of this bipartisan initiative to combat the sexual assault crisis we are grappling with on America’s college campuses,” said Congresswoman Cheri Bustos. “No student should live in fear of being the victim of such violence. Our bill takes important steps to protect students, empower survivors, and hold perpetrators fully accountable in a coordinated and consistent way across campuses from coast to coast. Sexual assault is a staggeringly common and underreported crime, and our effort will make important strides toward putting an end to these crimes and ensuring its survivors are not being swept under the rug.” "More must be done to address the epidemic of sexual assault on college campuses," Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici said. "This bill will create a safer environment at our universities. It will ensure schools provide essential resources for victims, like confidential advisers and well-trained campus personnel. As reports of sexual assault increase, universities need to respond with policies that create a greater system of accountability and transparency to prevent future attacks. I am pleased to cosponsor legislation that will make our college campuses more secure for all students." “It’s vital that universities have the resources and information necessary to adequately address the issue of sexual assault on college campuses,” Congresswoman Susan W. Brooks said. “This legislation represents a concerted effort to ensure our schools have helpful guidance and useful standards enabling them to effectively counsel victims in a confidential manner and implement adequate disciplinary proceedings. I’m especially pleased that those who oversee sexual assault cases will be provided specialized training that reflects current best practices. I look forward to continuing to work on this very important issue in a bipartisan manner to ensure safety and protection for victims of sexual assault and clarity to universities on how best to address this issue. I’d like to thank Representative’s Maloney and Meehan for their leadership on this legislation.”  “Having volunteered at a rape crisis center on a college campus, I have seen firsthand the toll this terrible crime takes on our students and their friends and loved ones. The need for congressional action is clear – no student on a college campus should live in fear of being attacked. This bipartisan legislation takes clear steps to help those affected by sexual assault, to educate campus personnel to respond compassionately, and to strengthen law enforcement response. By working together, we can help put a stop to rape and sexual assault on college campuses nationwide,” Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito said. “We must empower every student with adequate and fair resources so they feel safe on campus and are protected against victimization,” said Congressman Tom Reed. “This bill will expand resources for students, demand accountability and transparency from colleges and strengthen penalties for a school’s misconduct. These initiatives will help bring sexual assault on campuses to the forefront of the conversation at the national level – something that is long overdue. These are our children, our grandchildren, our nieces and nephews – we need to make sure they are safe and cared for.”  “As a former prosecutor and the father of two daughters in college, I want to do all I can to stop the sexual assault epidemic on our campuses,” said Congressman David Joyce. “This bipartisan bill will help protect our kids by ensuring that these crimes are not only fully prosecuted but prevented.” “My oldest daughter will begin her Junior year of college in a little over a month and I, like any other parent, want to make sure I do everything I can to ensure she’s safe,” said Congresswoman Kristi Noem. “This legislation empowers our students, strengthens accountability measures, and takes steps toward ending this horrible crime. Our students just shouldn’t have to worry about becoming a victim at school.” “College campuses should be places that foster learning and not places where the safety of young women is at an increased risk,” said Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins. “As a mother, this issue has become very personal to me and I am glad that both Republicans and Democrats have been able to come together to develop these sensible measures that will increase transparency and accountability in reporting and more importantly work to prevent sexual assault.”  “As a mother of a college-aged student, this is an issue that is close to my heart. Parents across the country have enough to worry about when sending their children to college,” said Congresswoman Renee Ellmers. “They should at a minimum know that their sons and daughters are in a safe environment. As chair of the Republican Women’s Policy Committee, I believe it is imperative that we address the problem of sexual assault and this is one step in doing so.” “This bi partisan legislation aims at making our college campuses safer so that students can learn in a secure environment and parents can have peace of mind,” said Congresswoman Lois Frankel. “Recently we have seen troubling statistics about campus sexual assault and stories of mishandled or unreported sexual assault cases in the media,” said Congresswoman Gwen Moore. “It is important that we remember that each number is a victim and represents a daughter, a sister or a friend. As mother and a grandmother, I strongly support CASA, which would require sexual assault training for on-campus personnel, establish confidential advisors to serve as support for survivors, and impose higher penalties on non-compliant universities.” “No student should ever fear for his or her safety on the college campus they call home, and Congress must do more to ensure schools are working to prevent assaults from occurring and are providing important protections for victims,” said Congresswoman Annie Kuster. “I’m proud to work with my colleagues from across the aisle to help introduce this crucial piece of legislation, which will move us forward towards finding a solution to this crisis so we can stop sexual assault on campus.” “With my older daughter returning to college this fall for her sophomore year, this issue is deeply personal for me,” said Congressman Gary Peters. “We need to work to create a safe and secure educational environment for all our children. This bipartisan legislation will help ensure that colleges and universities are taking proactive steps to protect their students and support the victims of sexual assault.” Provisions of the bipartisan legislation include: ·         New Campus Resources and Support Services for Student Survivors: Under this legislation, colleges and universities will be required to designate Confidential Advisors who will serve as a confidential resource for victims of assaults committed against a student. The role of Confidential Advisors will be to coordinate support services and accommodations for survivors, to provide information about options for reporting, and to provide guidance or assistance, at the direction of the survivor, in reporting the crime to campus authorities and/or local law enforcement. To encourage individuals to come forward with reports about sexual violence, schools will no longer be allowed to sanction a student who reveals a violation in good faith, such as underage drinking, in the process of reporting a sexual violence claim. ·         Minimum Training Standards for On-Campus Personnel: Currently, a chronic lack of training of on-campus personnel hampers sexual assault investigations and disciplinary processes, often resulting in negative outcomes for survivors. This legislation ensures that everyone from the Confidential Advisors, to those responsible for investigating and participating in disciplinary proceedings, will now receive specialized training to ensure they have a firm understanding of the nature of these crimes and their effect on survivors. ·         New Historic Transparency Requirements: For the first time, students at every university in America will be surveyed about their experience with sexual violence to get an accurate picture of this problem.  This new annual survey will be standardized and anonymous, with the results published online so that parents and high school students can make an informed choice when comparing universities. The Department of Education will also be required to publish the names of all schools with pending investigations, final resolutions, and voluntary resolution agreements related to Title IX. ·         Campus Accountability and Coordination with Law Enforcement: All schools will now be required to use a uniform process for campus disciplinary proceedings and may no longer allow athletic departments or other subgroups to handle complaints of sexual violence for members of that subgroup alone. This legislation will require colleges and universities to enter into memoranda of understanding with all applicable local law enforcement agencies to clearly delineate responsibilities and share information so that when an assault occurs, both campus authorities and local authorities can focus on solving the crime rather than debating jurisdiction. ·         Enforceable Title IX Penalties and Stiffer Penalties for Clery Act Violations: Schools that don’t comply with certain requirements under the bill may face a penalty of up to 1% of the institution’s operating budget. Previously, the only allowable penalty was the loss of all financial aid which is not practical and has never been done. The bill increases penalties for Clery Act violations to up to $150,000 per violation from the current penalty of $35,000. Read More

Brooks Statement on Vote Authorizing Litigation Against Executive Branch

2014/08/04

Congresswoman Susan W. Brooks (R-IN5) released the following statement after voting in favor of House Resolution 676, legislation authorizing the U.S. House of Representatives to initiate litigation for actions by the President or other executive branch officials inconsistent with their duties under the Constitution of the United States: "Speaker Boehner could not be more correct when he says ‘Congress makes the laws; the President executes them.’ This has been a basic cornerstone of our republic since its founding days. Unlike his predecessors in both political parties, President Obama has ignored this constitutional responsibility. This President clearly feels he can legislate without Congress. Such a dangerous approach is most prominently displayed in how the President has picked which parts of the Affordable Care Act to enforce and which parts to delay. President Obama does not have the authority to ignore laws passed by Congress.  The decision to take a vote authorizing litigation against the executive branch was made after careful consultation with constitutional experts and with a firm commitment to preserving our balance of power. It is the role of the judicial branch to resolve this current conflict between the executive branch and the legislative branch." Litigation brought by the House will focus on the President’s unilateral changes to the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The President has altered the ACA’s employer mandate twice without seeking any form of approval from Congress.   Read More

Brooks: Caring for Veterans is National and Moral Obligation

2014/08/04

Congresswoman Susan W. Brooks (R-IN5) released the following statement after voting in favor of the Veterans’ Access to Care through Choice, Accountability and Transparency Act of 2014: “Taking care of our veterans is not a political issue but rather a national and moral obligation. I’m encouraged members of the bipartisan House and Senate conference committee were able to agree on legislative fixes that address several serious outstanding issues. This legislation will enable veterans unable to secure an appointment at a VA medical facility within 30 days or who live more than 40 miles from a VA facility to receive non-VA health care. The long wait times veterans across the country have experienced are unacceptable and it was vital that we deal with this issue now. I’m also pleased to see additional funding to address structural problems such as military sexual assault trauma and to hire more primary and specialty care physicians to meet growing demand. The VA health care system needs a comprehensive cultural shift and there is still much work to be done. But this bipartisan agreement represents a significant move in the right direction.” The legislation was passed by a vote of 420-5. The bicameral deal provides an additional $17 billion dollars in funding to support implementation costs. Of that number, $5 billion will be provided through sensible cost-cutting measures.

Video ICYMI: Congresswoman Brooks Stands for Hoosier Farmers

2014/07/24

Congresswoman Susan W. Brooks (R-IN5) took to the House Floor recently in support of Hoosier farmers facing increased hardships because of the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed “Waters of the U.S.” rule:  "Mr. Speaker, I rise today to express my opposition to the EPA’s proposed ‘Waters of the U.S.’ rule. This rule will dramatically expand the Clean Water Act’s jurisdiction by changing current law that limits EPA authority to ‘navigable waters.’ Under this new rule, EPA authority will apply to any body of water that has a bed, a bank or a high water mark. Hoosier farmers explained to me that this new rule means large puddles, left after a storm, will fall under the EPA’s jurisdiction. Farmers may have to get a permit to perform even the most basic tasks on their own land. My constituents brought me these photos to show what changing the rule will mean. As you can see, this is not a stream… It’s not a navigable body of water or a long standing body of water… It should not be regulated by the EPA. It happened just after a large rain fall.  Mr. Speaker, this rule change will prevent farmers from doing their jobs, put people out of work and increase food prices. It’s bad for our nation’s landowners, it’s bad for our nation’s farmers and it’s bad for Americans trying to put an affordable meal on the table. Mr. Speaker, I ask the EPA to withdraw this rule and I yield back.”   Click here for video. To learn more about Congresswoman Susan W. Brooks, click here.         Read More

Brooks Statement on 9/11 Commission Tenth Anniversary Report

2014/07/23

Congresswoman Susan W. Brooks (R-IN5) released the following statement after today’s Committee on Homeland Security hearing on the 9/11 Commission Tenth Anniversary Report: “Ten years after the 9/11 Commission Report was issued, there is still significant work to do. As the original Commission members made clear in their follow up report, a sense of complacency is setting in that will have negative consequences if it deters from counterterrorism efforts.  We live in a dangerous world where increasing global instability directly threatens the safety and security of the American public. Today’s testimony underscores the need to remain vigilant, and one way of doing so is to finally address unfulfilled recommendations made in the original 9/11 report. I echo Chairman McCaul’s focus on a more effective Congressional oversight process for the Department of Homeland Security. Moreover, I share his concern with the reemergence of terrorism safe-havens abroad in places like Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan.  I was particularly pleased that both witnesses reaffirmed the importance of addressing the bioterrorism threat our nation faces. The consequences of a bioterrorism attack are potentially so severe that we must be proactive in preparing for and deterring this threat. I was also encouraged to hear both witnesses clearly state that first responder communications interoperability must be a priority. Ensuring first responders can communicate with one another before, during and after emergencies is central to keeping people safe when lives are on the line.”   Testimony was provided by: The Honorable Thomas H. Kean Jr., Co-Chair, Homeland Security Project, Bipartisan Policy Center and Former Chair, National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States. The Honorable Jamie S. Gorelick, Former Commissioner, National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States – in place of former Indiana Congressman and National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States Vice Chair Lee Hamilton.

Brooks & Polis Applaud Passage of STEM Education Act

2014/07/17

Congresswoman Susan W. Brooks (R-IN) and Congressman Jared Polis (D-CO) released the following statement after the passage of the STEM Education Act in the United States House of Representatives: “We’re pleased the House of Representatives has recognized the importance of computer science by passing the STEM Education Act. The bipartisan support for this bill shows broad agreement that preparing students for in-demand careers is a top priority. We’re hopeful our colleagues will go one step further by passing the Computer Science Education Act, which will increase access to computer science opportunities for students in classrooms across America. There will be 1.4 million computing jobs in 2020, and we must give all students a chance to excel in this exciting, high-paying field and earn the jobs of tomorrow.” The STEM Education Act broadens the definition of STEM subjects to include relevant fields like computer science and expand programs at the National Science Foundation to support informal STEM education activities. The Computer Science Education Act was introduced by Brooks and Polis in June of 2013, and changes the definition of a core academic subject to include computer science. Doing so gives local school leaders increased flexibility to purchase technology, support teacher professional development and offer AP classes.
