Time Line on HR 4437


Dec. 16, 2005:  U.S. House of Representatives passes Sensenbrenner-King bill by a 239 to 182 vote, mainly along party lines, with Republicans spearheading the bill’s passage. HR 4437 mandates 700 miles of wall separating the Mexican-U.S. Border, which critics have accused as being reminiscent of the Berlin Wall. HR 4437 makes 12,000,000 undocumented immigrants, including 1.6 children, felons; makes all organizations, churches, and social agencies that assist migrants, felons; and makes police officers immigration agents.


Feb. 21, 2006: Grand Rapids MI Commission passes resolution condemning HR 4437 in a 6 to 0 vote.


Feb. 27, 2006: Cleveland passes an emergency resolution condemning HR 4437 by a 19 to 0 vote; Cuyahoga County follows suit on March 2.


Mar. 3, 2006: Senate begins debates on immigration reform and HR 4437. Arlen Specter (R-PA) has his own draft, which includes guestworker provisions but no provisions for possible residency or citizenship of migrants; the majority of social service agencies that assist migrants favor the passage of the pending McCain-Kennedy bill.


Mar. 13, 2006: Columbus Council passes resolution condemning HR 4437.


Mar. 26, 2006: Columbus rally planned, protesting against the provisions of HR 4437 and expressing the need for vital immigration reform.
