Detainees

The September 11th attacks and the War on Terror have caused us to ask questions about our Constitution. In this age of terrorism, the United States has failed to ensure that we live up to our Constitutional ideals concerning our conduct toward those captured in this war. Rather than trying those suspected of terrorism, we have shipped many to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba where they remain in legal purgatory. Congressman Dingell discusses the issue.

Do-Nothing Congress

Despite the fact that they control the White House and both bodies of Congress by a comfortable majority, Republicans have done nothing to address the real problems facing American families.  Moreover, the Republican rubber-stamp Congress has neglected its oversight responsibilities not just by turning a blind eye to executive branch activities, but by giving the President carte-blanche authority over the federal government. Congressman Dingell runs down the failures of the Republican Congress.

Clean Water Act

Before the Clean Water Act was passed in 1972, the waters of this country were treated as little more than open sewers. The U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision in Rapanos v. US and Carabell v. US remanding the Clean Water case back to the lower courts has muddled the intent of Congress and completely distorted the purpose of the Clean Water Act. This decision poses a threat to waters across the country.

We Must Do More for the People of Darfur

One of this world's on-going tragedies is the horrific genocide in the Darfur region of the Sudan. Over the past three years, more than 400,000 Sudanese have been murdered and 2.5 million - almost the size of the population of Chicago - are homeless due to the conflict and genocide. Congressman Dingell says America, as the world's only superpower, has a special responsibility to end this conflict and bring about peace.

Immigration

New legal immigrants deserve a path to citizenship and the benefits that come with it, while lawbreakers should be punished and denied the privileges awarded to those who go down the proper path.
