The FAIR Congressional Task Force (FCTF) announced September 10 and 11 as the dates for its annual Hold Their Feet to the Fire in Washington, D.C. Currently, almost 50 radio hosts are confirmed to broadcast live from Radio Row, evidencing substantial growth of this national yearly event. In spring of 2007, 35 radio talk hosts attended Hold Their Feet to the Fire, representing millions of Americans opposed to the Senate Amnesty Bill. That bill was ultimately defeated, in large part due to the efforts of talk radio.
This year, talk hosts from across the country led by Roger Hedgecock of KOGO-AM in San Diego and Lou Dobbs of United Stations Radio Network and CNN, will broadcast live for two days on Capitol Hill to counteract the special interests attempting to set an amnesty agenda for the new Congress and the next Administration.
"Talk radio will represent American interests in our Nation’s Capital at a critical time and provide people all across the country an opportunity to make their voices heard on immigration. And as immigration is a critical national security issue, Hold Their Feet to the Fire will coincide with the seventh anniversary of 9/11," said Roger Hedgecock of KOGO-AM radio.
Talk hosts will broadcast live to millions of listeners across the country asking hard questions, debating issues and demanding immigration reform. Congressional guests, activists, high profile media personalities, and immigration experts will be in attendance and available throughout the event for wall-to-wall interviews.
