Our Capitol Hill team has learned that Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, chief sponsor of H.R. 10, is under tremendous pressure from the White House to back down from his current position supporting the immigration provisions of H.R. 10 so that a final bill can be agreed upon and delivered to President Bush for his signature before the election. Your phone calls will help give Speaker Hastert the support he needs to stand firm and support the immigration provisions of H.R. 10...
Rep. Hastert, Dennis
27 North River Street,
Batavia, IL 605102666
Washington, DC 20515
And, from FAIR:
House and Senate conferees are scheduled to meet this Wednesday, Oct. 20, to begin working on the final version of the 9/11 Recommendation Implementation Act. They are under pressure from the White House to drop the important identification security and immigration enforcement provisions from the House bill and reach a conclusion by this Friday, Oct. 22.
Help us pound their offices with faxes and phone calls insisting the immigration-security reforms in the House version of the bill remain part of the final package. Time is of the essence so act now.
