Hold Their Feet to the Fire 2009 Has Special Focus on Health Care Reform Benefits for Illegal Aliens
September 16, 2009
45 talk radio hosts continue broadcasting live today from the Phoenix Park Hotel on Capitol Hill as part of Hold Their Feet to the Fire 2009 Radio-thon. They are gathering to remind Congress and the new administration that rampant illegal immigration, efforts to grant amnesty, and taxpayer-subsidized health care benefits to millions of law-breakers are hot button issues for the American public.
Organized by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and Radio America Networks' Roger Hedgecock, Hold Their Feet to the Fire's participating talk hosts are speaking with listeners, immigration experts, high profile media personalities, and activists about critical immigration policy issues. They are discussing 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 taxpayer-funded benefits, needed reauthorization of E-Verify, and the Obama Administration's plans for amnesty.
In addition to this showcasing of talk radio as the "Town Hall of the Airwaves," which features the largest gathering ever of talk hosts, hundreds of listeners and activists are fanning out across the Capitol visiting members of Congress while thousands of listeners back home will call or meet with their representatives' district staffs.
Hold Their Feet to the Fire is the largest immigration-related media event each year and is a joint production of FAIR and participating radio and television stations.
