  1. Non synchronisé
    I call their name. Ladies first.
  2. Non synchronisé
    Congressman Debbie Wasserman Schultz,
    who was a fighter and a champion
  3. Non synchronisé
    for the people.
    Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart,
  4. Non synchronisé
    who is always advocating for the issues
    that impact our community.
  5. Non synchronisé
    Congressman Carlos Curbelo,
  6. Non synchronisé
    who is new to the Congress but
    is blazing his own great trail.
  7. Non synchronisé
    And they all helped move this bill.
    I always want to take a moment again
  8. Non synchronisé
    to recognize the family of
    Special Agent Grogan who are here with us,
  9. Non synchronisé
    and the family of Special Agent Dove,
    wherever they might be.
  10. Non synchronisé
    We have the honor of having FBI Director
    James Comey with us.
  11. Non synchronisé
    He has the enormous task of
    keeping all Americans safe.
  12. Non synchronisé
    and I'd seen him so many times,
    but he looks taller today.
  13. Non synchronisé
    We're also happy to have GSA Administrator
    Denise Roth here today.
  14. Non synchronisé
    We're fortunate to have a great
    local leader as the head of
  15. Non synchronisé
    the Miami field office,
    Special Agent-in-Charge George Piro.
  16. Non synchronisé
    And I also want to acknowledge our mayor.
  17. Non synchronisé
    Consider this scenario:
  18. Non synchronisé
    The brand new federal building
    housing the FBI has been built.
  19. Non synchronisé
    And the FBI approaches my office.
  20. Non synchronisé
    Congresswoman Wilson:
  21. Non synchronisé
    The ribbon cutting has been scheduled
    in four short weeks.
  22. Non synchronisé
    The dedication is
    on the government's calendar,
  23. Non synchronisé
    and cannot be changed.
  24. Non synchronisé
    One problem.
  25. Non synchronisé
    The FBI wants to name
    this gorgeous edifice
  26. Non synchronisé
    at the same time it opened.
  27. Non synchronisé
    Everyone said: “That's impossible.
  28. Non synchronisé
    It takes at least eight months to a year
    to complete the process,
  29. Non synchronisé
    [through] the House, the Senate
    and to the president's office.”
  30. Non synchronisé
    I said: ‘I'm a school principal.
  31. Non synchronisé
    And I said’ — excuse my French —
  32. Non synchronisé
    ‘Oh, hell no.
    We're going to get this done.’
  33. Non synchronisé
    Immediately, I went into attack mode.
  34. Non synchronisé
    I went to the speaker, Speaker Boehner.
  35. Non synchronisé
    I said, ‘Mr. Speaker, I need your help,
  36. Non synchronisé
    the FBI needs your help.
  37. Non synchronisé
    And your country needs your help.
  38. Non synchronisé
    And we have no time to waste.’
  39. Non synchronisé
    He went into attack mode,
  40. Non synchronisé
    and in two days pulled it out
    of committee.
  41. Non synchronisé
    Brought it to the floor for a vote.
  42. Non synchronisé
    Rep. Curbelo and I presented it.
  43. Non synchronisé
    We all voted for it.
  44. Non synchronisé
    And I dashed it over to the Senate.
  45. Non synchronisé
    And put our senators on notice:
    Put it on your radar.
  46. Non synchronisé
    Senator Nelson and Senator Rubio,
  47. Non synchronisé
    who I believe have representatives
    here today,
  48. Non synchronisé
    they hotlined it to the Senate floor
    in just two days.
  49. Non synchronisé
    And guess what?
  50. Non synchronisé
    The president signed the bill into law
    this past Tuesday, April 7, 2015.
  51. Non synchronisé
    With a bang, bang, bang!
  52. Non synchronisé
    You know what?
  53. Non synchronisé
    I will be presenting the bill, a copy of the bill,
    that was signed into the law, to the FBI
  54. Non synchronisé
    and also the pen the president used
    to sign that document.
  55. Non synchronisé
    It is a miracle, to say the least.
  56. Non synchronisé
    But it speaks to the respect our Congress has
    for the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
  57. Non synchronisé
    The men and women who put their lives
    on the line every single day.
  58. Non synchronisé
    And today we're providing a boost to our nation
  59. Non synchronisé
    by naming this fantastic building in honor of
    Special Agent Benajmin Grogan and Jerry Dove,
  60. Non synchronisé
    who died valiantly on Friday, April 11,
  61. Non synchronisé
    in what is still considered the bloodiest gun battle
    in the storied history of the FBI.
  62. Non synchronisé
    Most men and women in law enforcement
    leave their homes for work
  63. Non synchronisé
    knowing that there is a possibility
    that they may not return.
  64. Non synchronisé
    I may [inaudible] for all men and women
    and first responders to stand up.
  65. Non synchronisé
    Stand up now, so that we can
    applaud you and what you do.
  66. Non synchronisé
    Stand up! We are proud of you.
  67. Non synchronisé
    We are proud of your courage.
  68. Non synchronisé
    Thank you.
  69. Non synchronisé
    I don't know if that was on the minds
    of agents Grogan and Dove
  70. Non synchronisé
    as they left their homes on April 11, 1986.
  71. Non synchronisé
    But I do know it was an unusually breezy
    spring morning in South Florida.
  72. Non synchronisé
    So eerily similar today,
    and the actual anniversary is tomorrow.
  73. Non synchronisé
    I do [know] that Miami in the 1980s was plagued
    by crime and graphic violence.
  74. Non synchronisé
    We all know that.
  75. Non synchronisé
    This period has been chronicled
    in media reports,
  76. Non synchronisé
    and portrayed on TV shows like Miami Vice
    and movies like Scarface.
  77. Non synchronisé
    I know that Agent Grogan was a company man,
    and one year from retirement.
  78. Non synchronisé
    His wife also was an employee of the FBI.
  79. Non synchronisé
    I know that Agent Dove joined the bureau
    after completing law school,
  80. Non synchronisé
    and was living his boyhood dream,
    according to his family.
  81. Non synchronisé
    I know their bravery was the motivation
    for joining a team on that morning.
  82. Non synchronisé
    A team that was tailing a vehicle
    with two suspects
  83. Non synchronisé
    who were connected to a string of murders
    and violence and bank robberies.
  84. Non synchronisé
    The agents attempted to get
    the drivers to pull over.
  85. Non synchronisé
    They were cornered.
  86. Non synchronisé
    A gun battle immediately ensued.
  87. Non synchronisé
    There was a barrage of bullets.
  88. Non synchronisé
    I can only imagine the frustration
    of those agents.
  89. Non synchronisé
    Yet they battled on.
  90. Non synchronisé
    In a desperate attempt to flee, the suspects
    tried to commandeer Grogan and Dove’s vehicle.
  91. Non synchronisé
    It is reported the suspects shot both agents
    with a high-powered rifle at close range.
  92. Non synchronisé
    Shortly after, the suspects were themselves
    fatally shot by Agent Morales.
  93. Non synchronisé
    Agent Morales made a memorable statement
    about his role in that historic event.
  94. Non synchronisé
    He said, 'I just knew I was going to die.
  95. Non synchronisé
    But I was going to do my very best to make sure
    that those suspects did not get away."
  96. Non synchronisé
    When the smoke cleared, two agents lay dead.
  97. Non synchronisé
    And five were seriously injured.
  98. Non synchronisé
    So today it is our patriotic duty to lift up
  99. Non synchronisé
    Special Agent Benjamin Grogan
    and Special Agent Jerry Dove
  100. Non synchronisé
    from the streets of South Florida,
    and place their names and pictures high.
  101. Non synchronisé
    Where the world will know that
    we are proud of their sacrifice.
  102. Non synchronisé
    Sacrifice for our nation.
  103. Non synchronisé
    It is only fitting that their names should be placed
    on the same mantle with the letters FBI.
  104. Non synchronisé
    Because Special Agent Grogan and Dove embody
  105. Non synchronisé
    the sacred motto for which
    the agency has become known.
  106. Non synchronisé
    - Please repeat it after me, fidelity.
    - Fidelity.
  107. Non synchronisé
    - Bravery.
    - Bravery.
  108. Non synchronisé
    - And integrity.
    - And integrity.
  109. Non synchronisé
    God bless you, God bless the FBI,
    and God bless America.
