'National Electronic Town Hall' Questions Health Care Reform Benefits for Illegal Aliens, Supports Continued Immigration Enforcement
WASHINGTON, Aug. 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) announces September 15th and 16th as the dates for its annual Hold Their Feet to the Fire radio rally in Washington, D.C. In this largest gathering ever of talk radio, 47 hosts, led by Roger Hedgecock of Radio America Networks and Lou Dobbs of United Stations Radio Network, will broadcast live from Capitol Hill. They will discuss several key issues, including the cost and impact of continued illegal immigration on jobs, wages, education, the environment and national security, the loopholes within America's Affordable Health Care Act of 2009 allowing illegal aliens access to tax-payer funded benefits, and the Obama Administration's plans for amnesty.
As in previous years at Hold Their Feet to the Fire, talk hosts will interview members of Congress, immigration reform experts, high profile media personalities, and activists. The event also features a press conference on the West Lawn of the Capitol showcasing the attending talk hosts, and a We the People reception honoring those who have made significant contributions towards true immigration reform.
"While expanding benefits for illegal aliens, this administration is simultaneously dismantling immigration enforcement and systematically laying the groundwork for yet another massive amnesty bill," said Bob Dane, Communications Director of FAIR and Event Manager of Hold Their Feet to the Fire 2009. "Powerful special interests are lobbying to stop immigration enforcement, pass mass amnesty legislation, and import more foreign guest workers with no regard to the plight of the American worker or our national security. Radio talk hosts representing millions of Americans will speak on their behalf, and their collective voice is a voice that roars."
