Posted on 05/26/2006 11:53:42 AM PDT by Iam1ru1-2
We may have lost this battle, but we are going to win the war!
Last night, 23 Republican Senators voted in favor of a bill (S. 2611 - the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2006) that will give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens; but the battle is far from over and the movement to secure our borders first has gained a great deal of momentum.
Two weeks ago, Senate leaders boasted that they had over 70 votes in favor of S. 2611. They fell well short of that number and the credit goes to all of you. Your Blast Faxes and calls changed some hearts and minds and you are still having a profound effect!
This legislation will now move to a House-Senate Conference Committee which will attempt to reconcile this Senate amnesty bill with the enforcement-only bill that has already passed the House of Representatives; and this shift in momentum has further emboldened House leaders who support securing our borders first to stand firm and has significantly increased the chances that the legislation that is eventually passed by our Congress will contain NO significant amnesty provisions.
However, a lot can still happen in the coming weeks, but you have our promise that we will continue the fight until this battle is won.
You can see how your Senators voted below.
Not Voting - 2
Yours In Freedom,
Feinstein and Boxer voted yes. Who could have foreseen that?
What's funny is that NumbersUSA gives my senior senator (Byrd) an A+ in the past twenty years on immigration. I think he voted against this for different reasons though, he's just a plain out racist.
My Senator sold us out to a foreign country... Sen. Di Fi.. of california, There is no way she could have listened to any one and voted the way she did..her seat is secure I hear, but it would be a blessing to get her out..
Since WA state is ruled by demoncRATS thereby King County (Seattle), both Cant"budget"well and Moron Murray voted yes. Not surprising.
My Senators (Virginia) played rope-a-dope. Warner (R) voted yes since he isn't up for election this year, and Allen (R) voted no since he is.
The good cop/bad cop works on CSI, not the Senate.
I'm from Illinois.
I have no Senator.
Well, my state, WA, has 2 who pose as senators, but are really demonrat reporters for the "drive-by media".
I made 3 calls to Brownbacks office trying to get him to change his vote. Didn't he and all the rest take an oath to uphold the law? What the hell happened?
Warner (VA) thinks I will forget this in two years. He is mistaken. The good news is I will be voting for George Allen in two years for President.
What the hell happened?
What did happen? I thought that Brownback was VERY conservative?
Does anyone else ever get the feeling that the elected officials aren't really in charge, and are taking orders from a secret cabal (as in 24)?
Most of our elected officials couldn't successfully color a coloring book. Do you really think they could successfully follow orders from a secret cabal?
That's the funniest post I've seen all week! You hit Sheets right in the shorts with that!
Texas here, and proud of it!
Allen is the man.
I'm lucky. Both my senators voted against amnesty. So, I anticipate continuing to support them. Had either of them voted for that travesty, they would never receive another vote from me. They'd be duly relegated to traitor status as far as I'm concerned.
Both of mine voted correctly.
