Will Frist Step Up To The Plate?

If no agreement on a bill is reached in committee, Senator Frist has promised to bring his own enforcement only bill to the floor for debate beginning March 27.

Call Senator Frist and Tell Him to Keep His Promise.

It is highly unlikely the committee will complete mark-up of the bill before the beginning of next week’s recess and the start of full Senate debate the following week on Monday, March 27.

In order to prevent any backsliding on his promise to bring up an enforcement only bill on March 27, call Majority Leader Bill Frist and let him know that you are counting on him to keep his promise to bring up enforcement only legislation no later than March 27.

    Senator Frist’s office contact information is as follows:

    DC Office 202-224-1911
    Leadership Office 202-224-3135

Sen. Majority Leader Bill Frist, frustrated by the sluggish debate over immigration reform at the committee level, plans to introduce a bill that deals solely with border security as early as today.

Mr. Frist’s bill, according to aides on both sides of the aisle, does not include a guest worker provision or a process for handling the 12 million illegal aliens already in the U.S., divisive topics that have stalled immigration legislation in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The bill would beef up security along the U.S.-Mexico border, provide funding for thousands more border patrol agents and build small sections of fencing in areas of key traffic. The Tennessee Republican, who is widely believed to be seeking the Republican nomination for president, had promised conservatives that he would bring up an enforcement-only bill and begin debate on the topic on the Senate floor by March 27.
