Security Check Delays

Thank you to everybody who joined in the calls to support fixing security check delays. Over the past two days, both the House of Representatives and the Senate passed matching omnibus appropriations bills that had a special provision to allocate $20 million to address the problem.

This is a victory on the issue, but there is more to be done. Congresswoman Yvette Clarke has been spearheading the effort in the House of Representatives to ensure administrative accountability in the process.

Congresswoman Clarke has graciously agreed to have a conference call at 4pm tomorrow to hear from our members who are stuck with a security check delay and to discuss the legislative effort. This will be an opportunity to personally thank the Congresswoman for all of her work on the issue and to find out what's next and what we can do to help.

We will have a very short period of time, so we would like to gather questions and stories in advance. We will have time to hear from a few members to ask questions, although we would like to make it possible for as many people as possible to be on the call to listen.

Because we anticipate a large number of people who would like to be on the call, we will have to reserve lines in advance, so we are asking you to respond with your name, phone number, story (if you would like to speak), and question (if you have a question)

Please RSVP to: contact@securecheckalliance.org

The conference call will be at 4pm Eastern time tomorrow (this would be 1pm on the west coast). We will do our best to guarantee a spot for everybody who responds by 4:30 pm Eastern (1:30 pm Pacific) today.


'Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO HOO, What a Ride'

Thank you Visa in Hand for your update. I will not be able to attend the conference because of work. However, I am interested to know what will be discussed. What these new bills of $20 million will do to expedite the process of security checks.

Not to be the bearer of somewhat bad news, but AFU is really only dealing with the FBI namecheck issue (stateside) and not dealing with security clearances for those waiting for visas.

This is really a huge step forward for the lobbying effort, I am really excited to see this finaly be resolved.
