A brief meeting with Bill Smith re the Immigration bill now in conference committee. Decided we could not accept a couple of amendments of Dem. origin—so bill will probably die. Too bad too because we’ve lost control of our borders. Did a couple of bill signings in the office—one on Fire Prevention Week & the other on some Child abuse legislation.

Then it was time for P.M. Peres & F.M. Shamir of Israel. We had a good meeting & on through a working lunch. He has a tremendous ec. problem & we are trying to be of help. I think he is the most flexible & reasonable Israeli P.M. that I’ve known since I’ve been in office.

A Cabinet Council meeting. One part had to do with a vast reduction in the agencies regulating financial inst’s. There is great duplication. I approved the action. The rest was an ec. report by Niskanen which we couldnt finish because I had a signing ceremony in the Rose Garden of the Older Americans Act of 1985. Then an interview with U.S. News & World Report. A reception for the leaders of the Nat. Fraternal Congress of America.
