Set the fellows in motion about a news story: an El Salvador young lady who entered the country illegally but who now has an Am. husband & baby is slated for deportation. I want it stopped. We shouldn’t be breaking up families.

A succession of meetings—first with national trade assn. leaders. They are ready to turn their constituents on in support of our Budget reductions. An issues briefing lunch—nothing out of the ordinary. Then Repub. members of Sen. Finance Comm. & Reps. members of House Ways & Means. This meeting was on the tax simplification plan. It was worthwhile. Finally a meeting with Trent Lotts Whip organization. This was a good one mainly on budget reductions. I phoned Berke Brethed—cartoonist who does Bloom County. He obviously thought I was calling to bitch about something. I called to thank him for the Sunday strip where he had Nancy in the strip looking lovely. He’s sending me the original.
