H.R. 4437: Speak Up!

More from the NYT editorial:
The cardinal's focus of concern is H.R. 4437, a bill sponsored by James Sensenbrenner Jr. of Wisconsin and Peter King of New York. This grab bag legislation, which was recently passed by the House, would expand the definition of "alien smuggling" in a way that could theoretically include working in a soup kitchen, driving a friend to a bus stop or caring for a neighbor's baby. Similar language appears in legislation being considered by the Senate this week.
Or leaving water to help prevent more death in the desert?

The bill now comes under the jurusdiction of the Senate bJudiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security and Citizenship.

Here is the subcommittee page.
