border security.

"It's time to come to Washington, D.C., and tell Congress in 
person what you have been telling them over the phone and in 
letters and faxes," said Hedgecock. "This is your chance to tell 
Congress directly - we're tired of America selling out to cheap 
labor and corruption."

Hedgecock is the host of a radio program on KOGO-AM 600 in San 
Diego and a frequent substitute host for Rush Limbaugh.

Over the last 10 years, Roger has taken large groups of his 
listeners to Washington to lobby Congress on key issues. This year 
- from April 24-28 -- he is mobilizing some of America's most 
influential radio personalities from around the country in a 
national effort culminating in direct citizen lobbying for 
immigration reform.

Joining Hedgecock will be talkers John and Ken from KFI in Los
Angeles, Bruce Jacobs of KFYI in Phoenix, Mike Siegel of KTTH in
Seattle, Melanie Morgan of KSFO in San Francisco, Michael Graham 
of WMAL in Washington and Blanquita Cullum of Radio America. They 
will be broadcasting live, discussing the need for immigration 
reform and interviewing congressional leaders.

The agenda for the rally and lobbying effort includes these 

  a.. No Licenses for Illegal Aliens
  b.. No Amnesty for Illegal Aliens
  c.. Secure our Borders
  d.. Crack Down on Employers of Illegal Aliens
  e.. Resume Interior Sweeps to Nab Illegal Aliens
  f.. Stop Providing Government Benefits for Illegal Aliens
  g.. Put Homeland Security on the Front Burner

The activities begin On Sunday, April 24, with a group 
orientation, planning sessions, the distribution of T-shirts, tote 
bags, buttons and congressional directories. Teams will be 
assigned to specific lawmakers.

On Monday, at 9 a.m., there will be a rally at Lafayette Park, 
near the White House. At noon, the lobbying begins on Capitol 

On Wednesday night, Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., and the chairman 
of the Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus, will be the 
keynote speaker at a dinner.
