Larry Craig to lead "Secure Our Borders and Our Economy" rally

Senator Larry Craig (R-ID) and friends will be holding a "rally" on Capitol Hill on Wednesday and demanding "comprehensive" immigration "reform". From their press release:
A group of lawmakers, business leaders and agriculture producers will gather on Capitol Hill to demand Border Security be paired with Immigration Reform. Border security without immigration reform will leave agriculture without access to a legal, stable workforce and raise the costs of American agricultural products.
Those joining the good Senator at the "rally" include:
* Rep. Adam Putnam (R-Fla.)

* Thomas E. Stenzel, President and CEO, United Fresh Produce Association

* R. Bruce Josten, executive vice president, Government Affairs, U.S. Chamber of Commerce (also here)

* Michael S. Kaufman, treasurer of the Board of Directors, National Restaurant Association

* Maureen Torrey, Torrey Farms (Elba, N.Y.), and co-chairman of United Fresh Produce Association
In related news, Craig recently tried to insert his AgJobs amnesty scheme into an Iraq funding bill.

The release has a contact email at the PR firm Qorvis, which is a bit of a red flag. They not only have spread PR for the Saudis (related: see the links in the update here), they also reportedly teach people how to filibuster on cable TV shows. And, they allegedly spent some time at an anti-sugar blog.
