Trayvon Martin

Floor Speech

Mr. AL GREEN of Texas. Mr. Speaker, I am before the House with a very heavy heart. I am very much concerned about the circumstances in Florida involving Trayvon Martin.

We live in a world, Mr. Speaker, where it's not enough for things to be right; they must also look right. And it just doesn't look right for a 17-year-old child to lose his life under the circumstances that have been announced.

I would like to thank all of the many colleagues here for the bipartisan support that has been shown in calling for the Justice Department to investigate. I also thank those who say they support what the Justice Department is doing in terms of an investigation. It doesn't look right, and I believe it is not right.
