149 Congressmen sign a letter to Sec. of State of USA.

What happens when 149 members of congress write a letter and give a recommendation to the Secretary of State of the U.S.A? Without a doubt, there would be enormous amount of pressure on the secretary to reconsider a decision. The point that we are talking about is inter-country adoptions from Vietnam to the United States.

149 congressman signed a letter to the Secretary of State asking her to build an interim measure to resume inter-country adoptions from Vietnam with enforceable accountable standards in place.

I thought I remember that it is not the State Department but the government of Vietnam that stopped inter-country adoptions because the state department had made an insulting statement regarding their standards.
