Arrest during immigration protest

See also: Gang of Eight

On October 8, 2013, eight Democratic members of Congress were arrested while attending a protest calling for comprehensive immigration reform in front of the U.S. Capitol.[5]

The eight included Grijalva, John Lewis, Luis Gutierrez, Charlie Rangel, Keith Ellison, Joe Crowley, Jan Schakowsky and Al Green.[5] The politicians, along with activists who attended an immigration rally on the National Mall, staged a sit-in near the west side of the Capitol.[5] Authorities arrested the lawmakers for crowding and disrupting the streets around the Capitol. Almost 200 people were arrested by police during the protest.[5]

Rank in the House of Representatives

According to a special edition of National Journal, Grijalva -- who co-chairs the Congressional Progressive Caucus -- tied for most left-leaning member of the House in 2011 with other well-known liberal Democrats like Rep. Barbara Lee and fellow co-chair Rep. Keith Ellison. [6] Grijalva has often made a point of highlighting his values even in close campaigns, saying after being narrowly re-elected in 2010, "We're not going back with a renewed sense of caution, we're going back with a new sense of purpose." [7]

Legislative actions

CongressLogo.png

The 113th Congress has had 55 out of 5,401 introduced bills enacted into law (1 percent) as of November 30, 2013. Comparatively, the 112th Congress had 1.14 percent of introduced bills enacted into law in the first session.[8] For more information pertaining to Grijalva's voting record in the 113th Congress, please see the below sections.[9]

National security

American response in Syria
See also: United States involvement in Syria

On August 29, 2013, more than 50 House Democrats signed a letter written by California Rep. Barbara Lee that called for a congressional resolution on strikes, and cautioned that the dire situation in Syria "should not draw us into an unwise war—especially without adhering to our constitutional requirements."[10][11] The letter also called on the Obama administration to work with the U.N. Security Council “to build international consensus” condemning the alleged use of chemical weapons. Grijalva was one of the 50 Democrats in the House to sign the letter.[10][11]

National Defense Authorization Act

Voted "No" Grijalva voted against HR 1960 - the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014. The bill passed the House on June 14, 2013, with a vote of 315 - 108. Both parties were somewhat divided on the vote.[12]

Department of Homeland Security Appropriations

Voted "No" Grijalva voted against HR 2217 - the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act of 2014. The bill passed the House on June 6, 2013, with a vote of 245 - 182 that was largely along party lines.[13]

Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act

Voted "No" Grijalva voted against HR 624 - the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act. The bill passed the House on April 18, 2013, with a vote of 288 - 127. The bill would allow federal intelligence agencies to share cybersecurity intelligence and information with private entities and utilities. The bill was largely supported by Republicans but divided the Democratic Party.[14]

Economy

Federal Statutory Pay Adjustment Elimination

Voted "No" Grijalva voted against HR 273 - Eliminates the 2013 Statutory Pay Adjustment for Federal Employees. The bill passed the House on February 15, 2013, with a vote of 261 - 154. The bill would prevent a 0.5% pay increase for all federal workers from taking effect, saving the federal government $11 billion over 10 years. Grijalva was 1 of 144 Democrats who voted against the bill.[15]

Immigration

Morton Memos Enforcement Prohibition

Voted "No" Grijalva voted against House Amendment 136 - Prohibits the Enforcement of the Immigration Executive Order. The amendment was adopted by the House on June 6, 2013, with a vote of 224 - 201. The purpose of the amendment as stated on the official text is to "prohibit the use of funds to finalize, implement, administer, or enforce the Morton Memos." These memos would have granted administrative amnesty to certain illegal aliens residing in the United States.[16] The vote largely followed party lines.[17]

Healthcare

Health Care Reform Rules

Voted "No" Grijalva voted against House Amendment 450 - Requires Congressional Approval for Any Rules Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The amendment was adopted by the House on August 2, 2013, with a vote of 227-185. The amendment requires that all changes to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act be approved by Congress before taking effect. The vote was largely along party lines.[18]

Social issues

Abortion

Voted "No" Grijalva voted against HR 1797 - Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. The resolution passed the House on June 18, 2013, with a vote of 228 - 196 that largely followed party lines. The purpose of the bill is to ban abortions that would take place 20 or more weeks after fertilization.[19]

Previous Congresses

Grijalva voted against the economic package known as the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act offered after the U.S. economic crash in 2008, saying it created too little oversight of Wall Street and the banking industry.[20]

Grijalva voted in favor of the Affordable Care Act -- usually called "health care reform" -- even though he prefers a single-payer health care system because he viewed the law as a step in the right direction.[21]

Grijalva voted in favor of government intervention to stop GM and Chrysler from going bankrupt.[22] Supporters argued the move helped the economy; as CNN Money noted on Feb. 16, "The hit to the economy would have been far worse than the $15 billion or so that the bailouts might end up costing taxpayers, considering the estimated 1.5 million additional job losses, the closure of GM, Chrysler and many of their suppliers and the shifting of much auto production overseas if the companies had failed."[23]

Grijalva voted in favor of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.[24] TLeading Republicans, such as Speaker of the House John Boehner, frequently argued the plan was a waste of money, and presidential candidate Mitt Romney said "the only thing [it] produced is a series of broken promises."[25] According to a February 2012 Congressional Budget Office report, as many as 2 million Americans owed their current employment to the Recovery Act in December 2011.[26]

Grijalva voted for the Car Allowance Rebate System that allowed people to trade in older cars for newer, more fuel-efficient models.[27] A University of Delaware study estimated the program cost $1.4 billion, a sum highlighted by opponents of the program. Separately, the Department of Transportation found a 58 percent average fuel efficiency improvement for families that traded in old cars for new ones.[28] A University of Michigan study concluded that CARS improved the average fuel economy of all vehicles purchased by 0.6 mpg in July 2009 and by 0.7 mpg in August 2009.[29]

Grijalva voted for the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009, which would have limited the overall national emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases and set regular ongoing reduction goals.[30] The Senate did not take up the bill, and it has not subsequently been introduced.

112th Congress

Among Grijalva's notable votes and actions in the 112th Congress, he:

  • Supported the Progressive Caucus Restore the American Dream for the 99% Act, which the Economic Policy Institute called "a package of near-term job-creation measures and budgetary policy reforms that would . . . increase nonfarm payroll employment by almost 2.3 million jobs in 2012 and almost 3.1 million jobs in 2013."[31]
  • Voted against the House majority's budget plans for 2011[32] and 2012[33] and voted in favor of the Congressional Progressive Caucus' alternative People's Budget in 2011[34] -- which would have eliminated the national budget deficit in 10 years, according to an analysis by the Economic Policy Institute[35] -- and the CPC's Budget for All in 2012.[36]
  • Voted in favor of the Stop Trading On Congressional Knowledge (STOCK) Act to prevent Members of Congress from using inside information to profit on Wall Street.[37]
  • Announced opposition to the Stop Online Piracy Act before it was shelved by the House of Representatives.[38]

In addition to his votes in Congress, he vocally opposed Arizona's SB 1070 immigration crackdown law and led the filing of an amicus brief with the Supreme Court arguing that it should be overturned because it violated the supremacy clause of the Constitution.[39] He is a co-sponsor of the Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution prohibiting any discrimination on the basis of sex, a proposal formally titled House Joint Resolution 69 in the 112th Congress. The House Republican majority has not brought it up for a vote in the 112th Congress.

Fiscal Cliff
Voted "Yes" Grijalva voted for the fiscal cliff compromise bill, which made permanent most of the Bush tax cuts originally passed in 2001 and 2003 while also raising tax rates on the highest income levels. He was 1 of 172 Democrats that voted in favor of the bill. The bill was passed in the House by a 257 - 167 vote on January 1, 2013.[40]

Campaign themes

2012

Grijalva's campaign website listed the following issues:[41]

  • Jobs and Economy
Excerpt: "Raúl is an outspoken leader for a new middle class tax cut and more investments in new areas of job creation and economic growth. We need more, not less, of a focus on how we can get America working again."
  • Education
Excerpt: "Raúl has always made improving our public education system at all levels a cornerstone of his time in Congress. He believes our nation’s long-term strength depends on an educated population. "
  • Environment
Excerpt: "As Ranking Member on the National Parks, Forests, and Public Lands Subcommittee, Congressman Grijalva has fought to preserve our public lands and make sure their unique needs are considered in our legislative climate change efforts."
  • Health Care
Excerpt: "Raúl voted in favor of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the most significant overhaul of American health care policy in decades. He remains committed to fighting Republican attempts to repeal it or de-fund parts of the bill that improve health care delivery and affordability and ensure that peoples’ livelihoods are not undermined by excessive bottom-line thinking in the health insurance industry."
  • Housing and Foreclosures
Excerpt: "The collapse of the U.S. housing market hit Arizona especially hard, and our state now has the highest rate of foreclosures per household of any in the country. Raúl is working to help keep more Americans in their homes and hold lenders and banks accountable."
