Rep. Ted Poe's House Floor statement 5-6-10
« on: May 06, 2010, 01:14:25 PM »

Hi Marty, I missed it live, but found the video:


YouTube - "Brazil Should Return Nicole Pate 5-6-10":

 BRAZIL SHOULD RETURN NICOLE PATE 5-6-10


From C-SPAN - video and transcripthttp://www.c-spanvideo.org/videoLibrary/clip.php?appid=598099101

00:08:13 MADAM SPEAKER, BRAZIL HAS BECOME A HAVEN FOR STOLEN CHILDREN FROM THE UNITED STATES. 

00:08:18 THERE ARE OVER 50 KIDNAPPED CHILDREN IN BRAZIL. 

00:08:21 FOX NEWS 26 IN HOUSTON, TEXAS, FIRST BROUGHT ATTENTION TO THE STORY OF ONE LITTLE GIRL STOLEN FROM HER FATHER, MY FRIEND AND CONSTITUENT, MARTY PATE.

00:08:30 MARTY LIVES IN CROSBY, TEXAS, AND HAS NOT SEEN HIS DAUGHTER, NICOLE, IN FOUR YEARS.

00:08:36 HER MOTHER, MONICA, IS A NATIVE OF BRAZIL AND TOOK NICOLE ON A TRIP IN 2006 AND NEVER CAME BACK. 

00:08:45 LEGAL DOCUMENTS FROM TEXAS GIVE MARTY JOINT CUSTODY AND INTERNATIONAL LAW REQUIRES BRAZIL TO RETURN NICOLE TO AMERICA.

00:08:52 MARTY WANTS TO SEE HER DAUGHTER AND HAVE HER VISIT HER FAMILY IN THE UNITED STATES, BUT OFFICIALS IN BRAZIL ARE STILL STONEWALLING AND IGNORING THEIR LEGAL DUTY.
 
00:09:00 OUR STATE DEPARTMENT MUST PRESSURE BRAZIL TO FOLLOW ITS INTERNATIONAL TREATY OBLIGATIONS, AND BRAZIL MUST STOP SANCTIONING THE KIDNAPPING OF AMERICAN CHILDREN. 

00:09:10 MARTY HAS THE RIGHT TO BE REUNITED WITH HIS KIDNAPPED DAUGHTER, NICOLE, AND THAT'S JUST THE WAY IT IS. 

00:09:15 I YIELD BACK.
