AMERICA’S MOST WANTED broadcasts from the White House Saturday, July 29 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, celebrating a milestone that will help make America safer – President Bush’s anticipated signing of the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act, which will create a national sex offender registry.
July 27, 2006, marks the 25th anniversary of the abduction and murder of Adam Walsh, the 6-year-old son of AMW host John Walsh, who has fought back with passion since the day Adam went missing. Thanks to Walsh and AMW, thousands of crime victims have achieved justice and dozens of abducted children have been returned home safely. Now, after years of hard work and lobbying by Walsh and others, Congress will send the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act to President Bush for his signature. The President is expected to sign it into law in the White House Rose Garden on the 25th anniversary of Adam’s murder.
