How to use entirely in a sentence?

  1. Idaho Dennis Lockhart:

    The more extreme characterizations of hawks and doves, where the implication is that participants on the committee want to go in entirely different directions at any given point in time ... that is not the current set of circumstances, the committee is much tighter in its array of opinion, and the differences between points of view are more nuanced and more related to sooner versus a little later on questions of policy.

  2. Rudy Giuliani:

    He created an impression with the police that he was on the side of the protestors, some of those protestors were entirely legitimate, some of those protestors were horrible.

  3. Henry Spiller:

    This burden we're putting in the health care system is entirely preventable, these are children who do not need a hospital if not but for the fact that they were accidentally poisoned by medications that were not designed to be taken by them.

  4. Tom Jawetz:

    When Congress in 1996 enacted sweeping immigration enforcement legislation — putting in place the expedited removal system that today allows Border Patrol agents to quickly deport people Border Patrol agents apprehend without any court process — it specifically created the credible fear process to preserve the right of people to seek asylum when they are apprehended between the ports of entry, congress did that knowing that if it circumscribed the right to seek protection, then it would run afoul of our obligations under Tom Jawetz and international law to not return people to face persecution abroad. The interim final rule issued today acknowledges this history even as it attempts to undo it entirely.

  5. Peter Dixon:

    Investors who were heavily exposed to Greece have cut their exposure hugely... But a drop of 10 percent for European stocks is entirely possible( in the event of Greece leaving the euro zone), that's the price to pay for the markets, which have over the course of the last couple of years really not taken into account these risks.
