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.

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.

“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.

I just called and emailed mine again. Now I am going to start on other states. Always say you live in their state when you call, pick a town and have a zip code handy if they ask. That way your call gets counted.

Amnesty has much more dim support than Republican support. There are only a handful of votes of conviction from the dims. Most dim votes against the last amnesty were votes of opportunity, not conviction. Amnesty has a small core of rino support also. Some rinos voted against amnesty in votes of opportunity. Other Republicans who initially supported amnesty had a change of heart and seem to be solidly against amnesty now. They listened to our loud protests.

Down the road they will do this to fire arms, our second amendment. You can safely bet on that too.

I'm looking down that same road as well. So many things coming at this country and all are a detriment to it.

I just called both Alexander and Corker to ask that they support filibuster and defeat cloture. I told both office flunkies ahat I would be watching the cloture vote with GREAT interest - much GREATER interest than a futile vote to oppose this abomination.

You sly thing. I never thought of that. I always just told them the state I was calling from. Excellent suggestion. :)

You should count the votes on the last amnesty in June. There is some bipartisan support, but the support is much stronger on the dim side. I think that you should give the amnesty-minded Republicans hell. Ring their phones off the hook and show up for their campaign appearances. Even Grahmnesty and McPainnesty got the message!

I called Landrieu's office-again. I keep bending their ear over her not stating one way or the other how she'll vote on this round. They keep assuring me that she voted 'no' in June on this. I keep telling them, 'we'll be watching how she votes this time.'

As an added stick and warning I said. "Isn't it fantastic that Jindal is our new Republican governor-elect?" Then said bye and hung up before she could answer.

force against all TRAITORS.
