I would have to ask him what the heck is the point in our tax dollars paying their large salaries if they are going to meet often and pass resolutions that carry no weight.

Rep Holt said that he does not believe the resolutions carry much weight but that actual legislation is the way to go to affect serious change with regard to Brazil's non-compliance with the Hague and the issues facing David Goldman and other left-behind parents.
 
So the question for Rep Holt is obvious. Why are you not beginning the process of calling hearings and introducing legislation? It seems like now would be a good time to start, as we wait anxiously for this court ruling.

Thanks!  I wrot to his office through his website tonight re:  my dissatisfaction with the situation.  I mean how long are we (as a Nation) going to sit back and do nothing?  When will Brazil and Mexico's feet be 'held to the fire' for continuing to provide a safe haven for international abductions?  Enough is enough!  These children deserve to be with their other parent as much as the one who took them...moreso even at this point.
"Every parent who has a child and they tuck him in at night, or her in at night, and they wish the best and only the best and they will always protect the child and do whatever they can, but most of the time they don't have to prove it. I'm in the proving grounds, to myself and to my child.  I have to get him home and I will do whatever I have to. I'll never stop to save him."  --David Goldman
