« Further Clarification from NSC on the Effect of Separation/Divorce on I-751 | Main | More on "Minuteman" »

The Senate and House formally convened the Conference Committee to reconcile differences between their respective versions of the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations bill. The conferees intend to complete their negotiations over the REAL ID Act and other provisions before they recess tomorrow (4/29).

The White House has undermined our efforts to defeat REAL ID by advising the conferees that it strongly supports REAL ID -- link here to see the White House letter: http://www.aila.org/infonet/fileViewer.aspx?docID=18319.

So if you care about asylum, judicial review, due process, or free speech - this is your last chance to act!!! The White House can be reached by phone at 202-456-1111 or by email at: http://capwiz.com/aila2/mail/oneclick_compose/?alertid=6804466.

Contact the conferees NOW and urge them to strip REAL ID from the bill. The Congressional Switchboard number is 202-224-3121. If your Senators and Representatives are not conferees, they need to be called as well. Urge them to ask their colleagues on the conference committee to oppose REAL ID.

Who are the Conferees? What is the message? Please link to: http://www.aila.org/images/advo/conferees-message.doc
