Congressman Garamendi Votes Against Misguided Bill that would Defund Law Enforcement
"The recent tragedy in San Francisco underscores the need for local law enforcement and immigration enforcement to work together to make sure dangerous criminals don’t fall through the cracks. Unfortunately, this bill is not a solution. This bill would defund local law enforcement and risks damaging existing relationships between law enforcement and the immigrant communities they serve," Garamendi said. read more

Yolo County Superintendent and Coalition Push Quality Preschool For All in 2016
Last week in looking at factors causing the Davis school achievement gap, we cited the problem that preschool is not universally available to all students. That problem is compounded by the fact that DJUSD has no hard data on how many children are or are not attending preschool and how that impacts the achievement gap. According to literature from the Yolo County Superintendent of Schools, Jesse Ortiz, “A school readiness gap exists for the youngest learners in Yolo County. At least 41% of three and four year olds in Yolo County do not experience preschool before starting Kindergarten. Income disparities, rural location, family mobility – all present significant lifetime challenges that could be overcome by a quality preschool for all education system. Our entire county community would benefit from this system and the resulting overall positive economic impact.” Mr. Ortiz, along with a growing coalition of elected officials ranging from Congressman John Garamendi and Senator Lois

My Vote on the Syrian Refugee Bill
I support America’s role in helping provide safe haven for the refugees from Syria and Iraq who are fleeing the murderous death cult we call ISIL, ISIS, or Da’esh and who have been properly vetted. I would never vote for a bill that I thought stopped our refugee programs. My wife Patti and I have been involved in refugee relief for our entire lives in public service, starting as Returned Peace Corps Volunteers in Ethiopia in the 1960s. We were there during the 1984 Ethiopian famine, when many refugees successfully made it to Europe. We knew students and leaders jailed and sometimes massacred during the Ethiopian-Eritrean Civil War. We actively worked with the Lost Boys of Sudan, the young men orphaned by the brutal Second Sudanese Civil War, as they sought refugee status, including in Patti’s role as the Deputy Administrator of the Foreign Agricultural Service at the USDA. The bill I voted for, H.R. 4038, by my reading (and I encourage everyone reading this to read the bill too),

Congressman John Garamendi’s Statement on Syrian Refugee Bill
WASHINGTON, DC - Today, Congressman John Garamendi (D-Fairfield, Davis, Yuba City), a Member of the House Armed Services Committee, voted for HR4038, a bill to enhance the screening of refugees from the Middle East and improve American security.  “This bill strengthens the already stringent requirements for international refugees entering America,” said Congressman Garamendi. “But strengthening the refugee program is just a part of the reassessment we must make in the wake of the Paris attacks. For those wishing to come to America to do harm, the refugee program is the least likely way to get in and the most likely way to get caught. Of the millions of displaced Syrians, only around 2,200 have been admitted to the United States as refugees, and for a good reason: applicants are vetted through biometric and biographic checks for at least 18 months by every major American national security and law enforcement agency before they even set foot on American soil.

Congressman Garamendi Votes against Flawed Western Water Bill and Calls for Reaching Common Ground
"At its core, this bill is part of a partisan campaign that sounds like a broken record. Yet again, the House brings up legislation that tries to steal Northern California water and send it to part of the Western San Joaquin Valley. H.R. 2898 would imperil jobs in fishing, small businesses in the tourism sector, and agriculture in the Delta region while devastating the environment," Congressman Garamendi said. read more

Congressman Garamendi Gets Update on Travis Air Force Base Security, Talks to Travis Community Leaders
"We are in the first quarter of a trillion dollar nuclear arms race," Garamendi said. "Before we embark on these incredibly expanded nuclear weapons programs, I want to know why. By voting down my amendments for more information on the costs and risks of our nuclear weapons strategy, a majority of my colleagues in Congress would prefer we just vote yes and wallow in ignorance. I don’t like ignorance." read more
