Hold Their Feet to the Fire 2009 Has Special Focus on Health Care Reform
Benefits for Illegal Aliens 

September 16, 2009

45 talk radio hosts continue broadcasting live today from the Phoenix Park
Hotel on Capitol Hill as part of Hold Their Feet to the Fire 2009 Radio-thon. 
They are gathering to remind Congress and the new administration that rampant
illegal immigration, efforts to grant amnesty, and taxpayer-subsidized health
care benefits to millions of law-breakers are hot button issues for the
American public.

Organized by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and Radio
America Networks' Roger Hedgecock, Hold Their Feet to the Fire's participating
talk hosts are speaking with listeners, immigration experts, high profile
media personalities, and activists about critical immigration policy issues.
They are discussing the cost and impact of continued illegal immigration on
jobs, wages, education, the environment and national security, the loopholes
within America's Affordable Health Care Act of 2009 allowing illegal aliens
access to taxpayer-funded benefits, needed reauthorization of E-Verify, and
the Obama Administration's plans for amnesty.  

In addition to this showcasing of talk radio as the "Town Hall of the
Airwaves," which features the largest gathering ever of talk hosts, hundreds
of listeners and activists are fanning out across the Capitol visiting members
of Congress while thousands of listeners back home will call or meet with
their representatives' district staffs. 

Hold Their Feet to the Fire is the largest immigration-related media event
each year and is a joint production of FAIR and participating radio and
television stations.
