Congressman Kevin Cramer congratulated Bismarck native and North Dakota State University Bison quarterback Carson Wentz on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives this morning for being the No. 2 pick in the National Football League draft.
“The attack in Brussels is another sad reminder we are at war with radical Islamic terrorism even if the President refuses to acknowledge it,” said Cramer. “The House passed the SAFE Act in November 2015 with a bi-partisan veto proof majority and I cannot comprehend why Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) refuses to allow a vote on the bill. ISIS has stated it plans to use the refugee crisis and infiltrate terrorists into the United States and throughout Europe. It is time to pass this bill and ensure any refugee who is admitted into our country is not a terrorist.”
“It is more important than ever our military retains highly trained airmen,” said Cramer. “Communities that welcome our military and offer such a positive quality of life are vital when we discuss retention. Grand Forks continues to lead by example in this regard.”
Israel and our allies in Europe have lived with the real fear their economic and national security were threatened by the despots and dictators who controlled much of the world’s crude oil supply,” said Cramer. “Today’s announcement U.S crude oil is being sent to refineries in Israel on the heels of shipments to Europe shatters the stranglehold OPEC and Russia has on the worldwide supply of energy. America’s shale oil energy revolution allows us to use the peaceful tools of energy development to replace the weapons of war throughout the world. Increasingly important in the arena of international affairs is the fact our allies can now depend upon the United States instead of Russia and the Middle East to meet their domestic energy needs.
