Dec 17, 2014 Press Release
Today is a historic, long-overdue day. At long last, the Cold War policies of the past five decades are almost over. I look forward to working with the President to consolidate and advance the measures announced today, and I commend him and his Administration for choosing to create a better future for the people of the United States and the people of Cuba.
Dec 9, 2014 Press Release
The Senate Intelligence Committee’s report is deeply disturbing. The United States should never use torture. Period. It’s morally wrong, it’s ineffective and it puts our own troops at risk. We should do whatever it takes to make sure this sad chapter in American history is never repeated.
Dec 4, 2014 Press Release
In a victory for Rhode Island families and advocates for environmental protection and historic preservation, the U.S. House of Representatives today approved legislation to make the Blackstone River Valley National Historic Corridor a unit of the National Park System. U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) introduced the Blackstone River Valley National Historical Park Establishment Act along with co-sponsors Richard E. Neal (D-MA), James McGovern (D-MA), and James Langevin (D-RI) to preserve the natural and historical significance of important sites along the Blackstone River Valley National Historic Corridor. This legislation was also introduced in the Senate by U.S. Senator Jack Reed (D-RI).
Nov 21, 2014 Press Release
I support President Obama's courageous and necessary action to unify families, strengthen communities and local businesses, and help fix our broken immigration system. It brings many of our hard-working neighbors out of the shadows so they can work legally, pay taxes and no longer be victimized by unscrupulous employers. It helps our police and law enforcement officers concentrate their resources on serious criminals and real security threats. It’s also the morally right thing to do.
