Republicans launch immigration hearings

By Elliot Spagat, Associated Press Writer, July 4, 2006, (AP)

"One day after the Fourth of July, congressional Republicans will offer a fireworks show of their own with the launch of summer field hearings on how to overhaul immigration laws.

The made-for-media display begins Wednesday with dueling hearings 2,400 miles apart. A House subcommittee will meet at a San Diego Border Patrol station to discuss the vulnerability of the nation's borders to terrorists. The same day, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen Specter, R-Pa., will host a hearing in Philadelphia about a need for foreign workers".
