[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E1093] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] IN RECOGNITION OF YEMENI AMERICAN NEWS' 10 YEARS OF SERVICE TO OUR MICHIGAN COMMUNTIY ______ HON. DEBBIE DINGELL of michigan 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. ____________________
