                    in the house of representatives

                        Thursday, July 26, 2018

  Mrs. DINGELL. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the Yemeni 
American News as it celebrates 10 years of service to our Michigan 
community. Its journalism serves as a valuable voice highlighting 
national and local matters affecting the Yemeni American community in 
Southeast Michigan while facilitating dialogue on pressing issues 
facing this valued community.
  Founded in 2008, the Yemeni American News was established with the 
mission of highlighting issues such as education, culture, and the 
economy while providing diverse viewpoints from within the Yemeni-
American community. Today, the Yemeni American News is published by 
Rasheed Alnozili and headquartered in Dearborn, Michigan where it 
serves the same population that it set out to serve one decade ago. The 
paper honors outstanding individuals, and always works to highlight the 
rich cultural background and vibrant heritage of Yemeni Americans.
  The Yemeni American News prints monthly, producing hundreds of 
stories, and showcasing the successes of our Southeastern Michigan 
community. It plays an important role in keeping our community informed 
and has kept pace with Yemeni-American society as it emerges within the 
fabric of our great multi-ethnic American society, while pressing for 
justice and reinforcing the importance of a free press, one of the most 
important pillars of our democracy. The Yemeni American News launched 
its website in 2008 as a cultural platform to spread educational, 
political, and legal awareness which is vital to southeast Michigan's 
dynamic Yemeni American population. Not only is it a bilingual 
newspaper, it is a platform that strengthens Yemenis' ties with their 
roots and history while building bridges and interdependence with other 
local communities.
  Mr. Speaker, I ask my colleagues to join me in honoring the Yemeni 
American News for enriching the lives of countless Michigan citizens 
through 10 years of service to our Michigan community. We look forward 
to the Yemeni American News' continued honest journalism and 
outstanding performance in the years to come.
