Roy Beck, president of NumbersUSA, says his group, which advocates lower levels of legal and illegal immigration, hosted a teleconference with Reps. Steve King, R-Iowa, Steve Stockman, R-Texas, and Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., on Wednesday night to rally opponents to mobilize for the August recess.
Beck said there were 40,000 people on the call.
"Obviously, they've got all of this money and all of these organizations and everything else, but we've got over 2 million members. We're in every district," Beck said. "And they've got a tough road to hoe. They've got to change representatives' minds. We're more in a situation of needing to hold people. It's always better to try to hold people to a position."http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2013/07/31/immigration-republican-house-recess/2606309/
