LEXINGTON PARK, MD –Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (D., MD-5th) attended a ribbon cutting ceremony this morning to open the new Flight Technology Hall and Collection Management Facility at the Patuxent River Naval Air Museum and Visitors Center. The new facilities will archive film, photographs, and artifacts important to the history of NAS Patuxent River. Additionally, they will house galleries highlighting some of the innovations developed at the installation.

“I was glad to be in Southern Maryland this morning to attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new annex buildings at the Patuxent River Naval Air Museum and Visitors Center,” said Congressman Hoyer. “This impressive museum does an outstanding job of sharing the history of Naval Air Station Patuxent River with members of the public. These new spaces will help attract visitors to St. Mary’s County and Southern Maryland, bringing new opportunities for local business and workers. The Museum represents a real partnership between the Navy, local leaders, and the business community, and I was proud to help secure funding for the Museum.”

“I join in congratulating the Museum on these exciting new updates, which will enable the Museum to continue to tell the story of NAS Pax River’s contributions to our national security,” continued Congressman Hoyer. “I thank everyone who has worked hard to reach this important milestone for the Museum, Naval Air Station Patuxent River, and Southern Maryland community.”

Congress Must Pass the DREAM Act to Protect Maryland Dreamers

By Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) and University of Maryland President Dr. Wallace Loh, Published in the college newspaper, The DiamondBack

October 24, 2017

They are friends and neighbors, students and colleagues. They serve in the military, care for the sick and elderly, and assist those recovering from natural disasters. We call them DREAMers – young people whose parents brought them to this country at a young age, who only know the U.S. as home. They are every bit as American as the rest of us; many have no memories of living anywhere else. And nearly 10,000 of them call Maryland home.

Several years ago, President Obama created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program so that these DREAMers could come out of the shadows and go to school, apply for school loans, and apply for employment, among other things – allowing them to follow their dreams and fully contribute to their communities.

Yet, as a result of the Administration’s decision last month to end the DACA program, these young people now live in limbo, uncertain of their status, fearful of deportation, and afraid they will be torn away from their families.

We believe Congress must take action as soon as possible to prevent such unconscionable outcomes. As a nation, we must provide a permanent solution to ensure these young people can stay here and continue contributing to our nation’s future.

At the University of Maryland, more than 100 DREAMers and DACA students face the future with dread. The same is true for countless others around Maryland and the nation. These students work hard – many juggling both coursework and employment – while constantly facing challenges associated with their immigration status. They have done everything by the book in pursuit of productive lives. Now, we must do all we can to assure them that we have their backs.

Not only is it the wrong thing to do to kick thousands of hardworking young people out of the country and send them to places they don’t know, but it would also result in severe economic harm nationwide. According to the Center for American Progress, the state of Maryland would see an annual loss of more than $509 million in the state’s gross domestic product. Many DREAMers are entrepreneurs and chose to build their businesses in Maryland communities – we should not be sending those entrepreneurs away.

Business leaders throughout the United States recognize the innovation and economic productivity DREAMers bring to their communities and support allowing them to stay. Deportation would have a severe impact on local economies, and we can’t afford to lose the innovative talents of DREAMers.

To us, the injustice and waste of sending these talented, productive young people away from the communities they call home is simply wrong. That’s why we both support passage of the DREAM Act in Congress. This legislation would give certainty to thousands of young DREAMers, allowing them to remain here and providing a pathway to citizenship. Together, we urge Members of Congress to support this critically important legislation and give DREAMers assurance they can remain here and contribute to our nation.

According to a poll conducted by the Washington Post and ABC News, eighty-six percent of Americans agree with us and support a solution to allow DREAMers to remain in the U.S.

We both remain firmly committed to protecting DREAMers throughout Maryland, and support establishing a pathway to citizenship for them. This is consistent with the values our nation was built on. They came through no fault of their own. This is their home, and they want to build lives of consequence here. We should give them this opportunity.

They are future leaders of our country, and we will not rest until the DREAM Act is passed and they have a permanent solution that allows them to continue to build their lives in the country they love and call home.

Congressmen Steny Hoyer said on the floor of the House of Representatives about the lead up to passing ObamaCare on Christmas Eve,
“We are not ramming this bill through the House.”

Congressman Steny Hoyer says the debate should be civil and not destructive and be careful not to use “hot” rhetoric” so as to not inflame unbalanced people. The debate here has been very angry and can be perceived by some as encouraging violent action. The polling data indicates the American people want this bill (Obamacare). We should not encourage violence.”

Hoyer, Dyson & Bohanan on rail service to Southern Maryland:

Aug. 24, 2006, From Steny Hoyer newsletter: “Now, to talk about frustrations, the people riding the bus are frustrated, the people riding their cars are frustrated,” Hoyer said of area traffic congestion. “No matter where you go, you’ve got to go through a chokepoint.”

The officials said they hope the state will continue studying the feasibility of extending light rail service to Southern Maryland. Hoyer said that when Democratic gubernatorial candidate Martin O’Malley visited Waldorf last month, he took the Baltimore mayor to the rail line right of way that crosses Charles County and could be used to accommodate a light rail operation.

“Buses are critically important, but we need a rail line,” Hoyer said. “It is a critical alternative available to us.”

“Buses are critically important, but we need a rail line,” Hoyer said. “It is a critical alternative available to us.”

Dyson, who has been speaking with residents door-to-door in his reelection campaign this summer, said transportation is one of the most important issues to voters.

“The metropolitan area is inching its way down, and what’s also inching its way down is the traffic problems,” Dyson said.

Bohanan said it is important that officials at the local, state and federal levels work together to plan and secure funding for projects. He said it will take “teamwork, vision and focus to get this done.”


From Washington Examiner:

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said Tuesday he did not know problems surrounding sexual harassment on Capitol Hill were as pervasive as they appear to be after accusations continued to mount against lawmakers.

“No, I didn’t,” said Hoyer, a 36-year veteran of the House, when asked if he was aware in years past of the issues. “I am deeply distressed and disturbed by what I find to be the response of my daughters [and] women that work in my office.”

“This is … more pervasive than I thought it was,” Hoyer said at his weekly meeting with reporters. “It’s of great concern, and we need to deal with it effectively.”

The longtime Maryland Democrat’s comments come as accusations continue to pile up against Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., the longest-serving member of the House.

Last week, a former employee of Conyers accused him of harassment and was paid $27,000 as a settlement. A second accuser — Deanna Maher, who worked for him from 1997-2005 — said Conyers made unwanted advances toward her on three occasions. A third accusation was published Tuesday morning alleging further sexual harassment and unwanted advances.

On Sunday, Conyers resigned as ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee, but leadership has not called for him to leave the House. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., also called him an “icon” in the U.S. during an appearance on “Meet The Press” two days ago.

Hoyer also said he believes the women accusing Conyers of sexual harassment in years past, but declined to call for Conyers’ resignation from Congress.

Instead, he called for the matter to be adjudicated in Congress.   MORE
