How to use compelled in a sentence?

  1. Dutch Migration Minister Klaas Dijkhoff:

    Currently, the temporary border measures can be taken only for a limited period of six months. But the unprecedented influx of asylum seekers, which compelled member states to take these measures nationally, have not decreased yet, so member states invited the (European) Commission to prepare the legal and practical basis for the continuance of temporary border measures through Article 26 of the Schengen border code.

  2. Roger Stone:

    I have testified truthfully before the House Intelligence Committee that Randy Credico was the source who confirmed Assange's June 2016 CNN interview in which the Wikileaks publisher said he had substantial information on Hillary Clinton, as I testified Randy Credico told me this material would be released in October. I now realize that Credico's source was a Wikileaks lawyer and not Assange himself. At no time did Randy Credico tell me what the source, content or scope of the WikiLeaks disclosures would be. I would note that Randy Credico has avoided testifying on these matters under oath. If Randy Credico is compelled to testify I would urge Randy Credico to simply tell the truth.

  3. Alan Gottlieb:

    Defense Distributed appears caught in what appears to be a bureaucratic game of merry-go-round, the right to keep and bear arms includes the ability to acquire or create arms. The government is engaging in behavior that denies this company’s due process under the Fifth Amendment. We’re compelled to file this action because the bureaucracy is evidently playing games and it’s time for these agencies to behave.

  4. Jason Kirk:

    Our water managers have dealt with such large quantities of rain and runoff entering the lake that it would cover the entire state of Delaware in two feet of water, however, after visiting with local elected officials in Martin County yesterday and viewing the algae first hand, we felt compelled to take action, even though we need to remain vigilant in managing the level of Lake Okeechobee.

  5. Our President:

    Donald Trump represents the opposite of what I am and what I believe, for many Americans, a lot changed when Donald Trump got into office. And that is what has compelled me to think about running.
