The information below was released on today's CNN's morning tip sheet: The Morning Grind. Further information has not been posted on Congressional websites. As soon as AFSC gets the information, we'll be sure to post it here. The titles already tell us a lot. Please note: There is no such thing as a "Reid-Kennedy Amnesty Bill". The approved Senate bill was a bi-partisan effort that was co-authored by Republican senators Specter, McCain, Martinez and Hagel as well as Democrats Reid and Kennedy, among others.
"A well placed Republican House source provided the Grind with an early look at what the next round of House hearings will address and when they will happen:
July 18th. Do the Reid-Kennedy bill's amnesty provisions repeat the mistakes of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986? House Judiciary Committee
July 19th. What is the impact of the Reid-Kennedy bill on American workers and their workplaces? House Education and the Workforce Committee
July 20th. How does the Reid-Kennedy bill compare to the House Border Security bill when it comes to enhancing border infrastructure? House Homeland Security Committee
July 26th. What is the role of English in American education and society, and does the Reid-Kennedy bill undermine, rather than encourage, this role? House Education and the Workforce Committee
July 27th. Will the Reid-Kennedy bill's amnesty provisions overwhelm the already overburdened U. S. Citizenship and Immigration Services? Will 10-20 million new applicants for citizenship make it easier for criminals and terrorists to evade background checks? House Judiciary Committee
July 27th. Does the Reid-Kennedy bill make it more difficult for law enforcement to expedite the removal of illegal aliens from the United States? House Homeland Security Committee
July 27th. To what degree is illegal immigration an issue for countries in the Western Hemisphere, and does the Reid-Kennedy bill undercut American diplomatic efforts aimed at curbing illegal immigration? House International Relations Committee"
