Wednesday Cloture Vote Set For DREAM Act Amnesty Bill
NumbersUSA ^ | October 23, 2007

Posted on 10/23/2007 8:33:09 AM PDT by processing please hold

(October 23) Last night, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) filed to invoke cloture on S. 2205, Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin’s (D-Ill.) new stand-alone DREAM Act amnesty bill. The cloture vote, for which 60 YES votes are necessary to prevent a filibuster on the measure, is set for Wednesday, October 24. Reid is attempting to bring this nightmarish amnesty bill to the floor under Senate Rule XIV without it ever having been debated in committee. Click here for more background on the DREAM Act.

It is imperative that NumbersUSA members call their senators today to ask them to vote NO on cloture for S. 2205.

Call your senators today to ask them to oppose the DREAM Act: 202-224-3121.

It’s back.

I called my senators today and will again tomorrow.

202-224-3121 reaches the switchboard.

I fear that this one will pass. It’s a nightmare, using a new interpretation of anchor babies and chain migration to accomplish full amnesty.

I hope not, if it passes can it be stopped in Congress?

And it will keep coming back. Again and again and again. I don't think we'll ever shake this monkey off our back.

I've called as well.

It sure contains lots of loopholes for
the RASA lawyers to ferret out!

Time to turn up the heat on our congress critters. Phone, Fax, and be firm but polite. So far there have been 50,000 faxes, lets try to multiply that by 5 before morning.

Dems and Open Borders RINOs continue to push through amnesty.

“I hope not, if it passes can it be stopped in Congress?”

I am usually pessimistic about the House because my congressman is a rubberstamp for the Democrat leadership. If he ever broke ranks, he would throw me into cardiac arrest- and this from a red state.

Our senators are more reliable.
