                         HONORING MR. DALE JIEH


                        HON. THOMAS G. TANCREDO

                              of colorado

                    in the house of representatives

                        Tuesday, April 22, 2008

  Mr. TANCREDO. Madam Speaker, I rise today to pay tribute to Mr. Dale 
Jieh the Congressional affairs chief at Taiwan's Embassy here in 
  Dale, like so many others at Taiwan's missions around the world, is 
among the hardest working diplomats in the world. Given Taiwan's unique 
position in the international community and the relentless efforts of 
China to shrink Taipei's diplomatic space, Taiwan's public officials 
face challenges that their counterparts from other countries do not, 
making their jobs more difficult.
  Dale has been serving his country for nearly 20 years. His service 
has taken him to Belgium, Thailand, Chicago, and here to Washington, 
DC. And he will be leaving Washington soon for Taiwan's consulate in 
Kansas City.
  Madam Speaker, I wish Dale and his family the best of luck in Kansas
