Community members call on CA Senators to oppose immigration control bill
BAKERSFIELD - The U.S. Senate is working on an illegal immigration control bill that was already passed by the House of Representatives.

The controversial measure includes several provisions that would make it a felony for organizations to provide any services to immigrants who came to the U.S illegally.

Since a major portion of Kerns local workforce does not have legal status, especially in agriculture, community members are calling on the public to call on California Senators to oppose this bill.

The bill is called the Border Protection, Anti-terrorism, and Illegal Immigration Control Act of 2005, or HR4437.

HR 4437 already passed in the house and is in the judiciary committee of the U.S. Senate.

Activist Dolores Huerta says the bill goes too far and that the U.S. has always been a country of immigrants.

1. CNN
just ran a story a few minutes ago on a march in Chicago against this bill. In an unusual moment of candor, the reporter said "They say thousands...no, tens of thousands are in the march."

sorry, no link at this time. I'm working at home today and have the TV on in the bg.
