WASHINGTON, April 5, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hold Their Feet to the Fire 2011 will bring together 50 talk radio hosts, broadcasting to all 50 states, for a two-day "Electronic Town Hall" dedicated to discussing U.S. immigration policy. The annual event is organized by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and will take place on April 6 and 7 at Washington's Phoenix Park Hotel.
The 50 talk hosts, who will be joined by concerned citizen activists, will be delivering a clear message to Congress and the Obama Administration: The American people want immigration reform. They want it this year. And they want the policy fixed so that it serves the interests of the American people, not the people who break our immigration laws.
During the two-day immigration town hall of the airwaves, the ballrooms of the Phoenix Park Hotel will be turned into dozens of makeshift radio studios. The fifty broadcasters have scheduled interviews with members of Congress, leading policy analysts, law enforcement personnel and activists who will be lobbying on Capitol Hill.
In past years, Hold Their Feet to the Fire has been credited with helping defeat legislation that would have granted illegal aliens amnesty. As the 112th Congress settles down to attending the people's business, Hold Their Feet to the Fire 2011 will build on the momentum of past years and on the push for real immigration reform that is coming from the grassroots.
Hold Their Feet to the Fire is open to credentialed media who want to cover the largest immigration-media event of the year and the largest gathering ever of talk hosts. Radio hosts, FAIR spokespeople and others will be available to speak to the media.
