Must reading for staff of Sens Shelby and Sessions: Immigration Reform

Attention Senators Richard Shelby, Jeff Sessions; State Senator Lowell Barron, and US congressman Robert Aderholt:

Anybody who may stumble on this blog, please bring it to the attention of our Public servants listed above

A few years ago I was having email exchanges with Carol Swain about the possibility of her coming to Collinsville or the region to discuss immigration. All this was before the issue became so inflammatory in the Spring of 2006. I was mocked, most unkindly by a Duke Grad who should know better. She never made it to town.
Today I have come across this new book and discussion chaired by Swain. I recommend it to all Lyberries, Libraries in the region and particular the staff of the Ft. Payne Times Journal who satellite staffing I understand not only to include the Rev. John Morgan, but also his son Joseph, a former intern for Congressman Aderholt.
I have reports that at least one influential person in the community is part of a discussion group statewide in the network of former UBama President David Matthews. If my info is correct, for sure that woman would want to bone up on this book and use her influence to bring this civil conversation to our region; as some of us know from personl experience it to have been less than in the recent past.
Bottom line interesting discussion here church and civic leaders should pursue.

This may help Shelby, Sessions, Aderholt, Barron and their staffs as well, not to mention Brent McDougal of the Bama CBF
