Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist and Speaker Denny Hastert jointly announced that Congress has sent the Secure Fence Act to the White House for President Bush's signature. The two Congressional leaders issued the following statement:
“Today we are transmitting H.R. 6061, Secure Fence Act of 2006, to the President. This legislation is a key component to keeping America safe and stemming the tide of illegal immigration. The American people demand a secure border, and this Republican Congress has responded to the American people's demand for a secure border by increasing the physical barriers and infrastructure along the border, and by providing state of the art monitoring technology. We look forward to the President’s signature of this legislation.
“Unfortunately, the House and Senate Democrat Leaders voted against the Secure Fence Act. The Democrat immigration plan would fail the American people, allow dangerous criminals into our country and would set our homeland security back to pre-9/11 levels.”
My source on the Hill tells me that the White House has scheduled the signing for Thursday morning, October 26th, in the Roosevelt Room, with full ceremony. Earlier rumors had the White House burying the bill's signing behind closed doors, but that obviously will not be the case. Expect the GOP to highlight this bill's enactment into law in the final two weeks of the midterm election campaign.Sphere It View blog reactions
