Back from Holiday - The Beat Goes On

Rate this Entry

Two HLG attorneys ventured out to Las Vegas to watch the World Series of Poker, stemming the blog postings. We're back and have some good news to report.



First, Rep. Wexler, our bill's co-sponsor appeared on The Colbert Report two weeks ago. While he didn't talk HR 5924, it was an amusing interview.



Second, the progress on HR 5924 is impressive. We're up to 17 co-sponsors:



Rep. Wexler, Robert [FL-19] - introduced legislation



Rep Sensenbrenner, F. James, Jr. [WI-5] - 4/29/2008



Rep McCarthy, Carolyn [NY-4] - 5/14/2008



Rep Putnam, Adam H. [FL-12] - 5/14/2008



Rep Cohen, Steve [TN-9] - 5/22/2008



Rep Pastor, Ed [AZ-4] - 5/22/2008



Rep Andrews, Robert E. [NJ-1] - 6/3/2008



Rep Davis, Danny K. [IL-7] - 6/3/2008



Rep Johnson, Eddie Bernice [TX-30] - 6/3/2008



Rep Jackson-Lee, Sheila [TX-18] - 6/3/2008



Rep Wasserman Schultz, Debbie [FL-20] - 6/4/2008



Rep Diaz-Balart, Mario [FL-25] - 7/8/2008



Rep Kuhl, John R. "Randy", Jr. [NY-29] - 7/8/2008



Rep Feeney, Tom [FL-24] - 7/8/2008



Rep Filner, Bob [CA-51] - 7/10/2008



Rep Castor, Kathy [FL-11] - 7/10/2008



Rep Ros-Lehtinen, Ileana [FL-18] - 7/10/2008



Third, we are waiting for the House Judiciary Immigration Subcommittee to schedule a markup for HR 5924. The Subcommittee has yet to release markup dates for any pending visa-related bills. We remain in close contact with Subcommittee staff on both sides of the aisle. Finally if you are interested in joining the cause, we are aggressively seeking more members. Please email Chris Musillo or Cindy Unkenholt.
