Vote against HR4437 Aye-sayers

Editorial by La Prensa


On December 16, 2005, the U.S. House of Representatives passed in a 239 to 182 vote the draconian “Border Protection, Antiterrorism, and Illegal Immigration Control Act,” a.k.a. the Sensenbrenner-King bill, which included provisions of: the construction of 700 miles of wall along the Mexican-U.S. border, making an estimated 12 million undocumented migrants felons (which includes over 1.6 million children), making all groups (be it churches, social agencies or unions) that assist these undocumented migrants felons, and making all local law enforcement officers immigration agents, thus draining the energies of these officers who perform vital local services.


All members of the U.S. House are up for election in November and La Prensa strongly urges its readers to vote against all the “Aye-sayers” of this bill including:



Pete Hoekstra MI-2

Vernon J. Ehlers  MI 3

Dave Camp  MI-4

Fred Upton MI 6

John Joe Schwarz MI 7

Mike Rogers MI 8

Joseph Knollenberg MI 9

Candice Miller MI 10

Thaddeus McCotter MI 11



Steve Chabot OH 1

Jean Schmidt OH 2

Paul Gillmor OH 5

Steven C. LaTourette OH 14

Deborah Pryce OH 15

Ralph Regula OH 16

Robert W. Ney OH 18


These House members voted for HR 4437. All, incidentally, are Republican. Michael G. Oxley (R, OH-4) voted for this bill but Oxley opted not to run for Congress this year. Congressman Ted Strickland (D, OH-6) voted for HR 4437, but recently recanted, stating that he regretted his vote. Strickland is a candidate for Ohio governor in November and in light of his regrets, his “Aye” vote should not be held against him.
