Please Read and Act: The Amnesty Bill
A friend who just got this email forwarded a copy to me. It speaks for itself, and IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO US ALL.
Breaking news on the Senate amnesty bill----
House leadership just announced that they will not succumb to pressure from the Senate to fast-track the amnesty bill. Instead House Speaker Hastert says the House will conduct "field hearings" on the amnesty bill. Hastert said, "I'm not putting any timeline on this thing, but I think we need this thing done right."
