Live Thread: Senate Amnesty Debate (CRITICAL 2ND CLOTURE VOTE TODAY!) Woo hoo!! It's DEAD!!
The U.S. Senate with Free Republic Input | June 28, 2007 | truthkeeper

Posted on 06/28/2007 6:25:57 AM PDT by truthkeeper

Here we are again my friends, hopefully for the last debate thread on this particular monstrous legislation. Proceedings are supposed to begin at 9:30 a.m. EST, with the cloture vote being taken at 10:30 a.m.

On a personal note, you've all been wonderful in your passion, vigilance, and commitment to the principles on which our country was founded. If I have to be in a foxhole, I want to be in it with you guys.

My daughter-in-law taught thrid grade this year as a first year teacher. She had a class of 18 kids. 17 of those kids were illegals from Mexico who had parents here working the farms...... She lost her job because she was not bilingal...... shame on Texas for letting this happen!

This is confusing. Sen Stevens said voting for cloture would allow the amendments to be considered, which would continue the debate.

LOL - yeah. I just go by which ever way Sessions votes.

I saw the D no on the last vote. They are all in red or borderline states that could oust them. I think they may hold.

"Single Bullet" Specter yesterday: "I never make promises. I follow process."

Scottish Law. Retrial for all illegal alien absconders (last month's pet issue). Citizens interfere with my "process" (my read on his recent statements).

Who votes for this crackpot?

Ensign Is a No [NR Staff]

National Review has learned that Senator John Ensign (R., Nev.) will vote no on cloture on the immigration bill. Ensign told the president and Minority Leader McConnell about his decision last night. He appears to be the fifth senator to change his vote from yes to no.

Jeff, I believe it’s much much more than that.

You're probably right - could you elaborate? I probably should have mentioned that I also think that Bush's vision of an North American Union is behind this as well.

Hey, stop beating yourself up. The choice was him or Gore or Kerry. We should have made a better choice in the primary, but as I remember it our primary choice was him or McCain.

What we need are some conservative leaders to step forward...

Has anyone noted that on those automatic calls that the operator says “if you speak English, press 2”.

Now why is English ‘2’ in this country? What is ‘1’?

No need to apologize - I’m mad as hell at Bush, but I’d rather have a 6th rate fireman than a 1st class arsonist! (Gore or Kerry).

Voting Yes on Cloture is akin to winning a second spin when you are playing Russian Roulette. It is a second chance for you to harm yourself.
