Jan 7, 2009 Floor Statement

Madame Speaker. 

Today I rise to recognize the 117th anniversary of the opening of Ellis Island.  Originally opened on January 1, 1892, the island remains a part of American history and our culture. Together with the Statue of Liberty, these places represent what it means to be an American.
