Kill Reid-Kennedy Amnesty

June 2006
Human Events;6/22/2006, Vol. 62 Issue 22, p1
The article reports on the move of the U.S. House Republican leadership to declare war on the Senate immigration-amnesty bill in June 2006, aptly renaming it Reid-Kennedy in honor of Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D.-Nev.) and liberal icon Teddy Kennedy (D.-Mass.). Both House Majority Leader John Boehner (R.-Ohio) and House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R.-Ill.) say they would like to send President Bush an immigration bill, but made clear they will not do so unless major provisions of Reid-Kennedy are dumped and basic provisions of the House bill retained.
