Amnesty gang bending Senate rules to pass bill

Steve Elliott

“How grassroots responds these next 36 hours will likely determine the fate of the ‘Amnesty Bill'”– Steve

Snooper,

The Senate is committed to formally bringing back the Bush-Kennedy amnesty bill possibly as early as this Friday–meaning we may have precious time remaining to make our voices heard!

Snooper, here’s what our insiders are telling us…

The Amnesty Gang (including Bush, Kennedy, McCain, Kyl, and Reid) will introduce a new bill as a “substitute” of the last failed bill. This allows them to bring the bill to the Senate floor without going through committee — just like the first Bush-Kennedy amnesty bill.

This is where it gets shadowy. Harry Reid will employ what is being called the “clay pigeon” procedure whereby all the amendments are lumped together as one to limit the ability of opposition to resist the bill!

What does all this mean?

It means that you and I and the rest of the citizens of ournation have been sold out by an arrogant Senate that hascompletely lost touch with the American people. Just listento the bristling arrogance of Senate Minority leader (and Amnesty Senator from Mississippi) Trent Lott, who spoke toreporters yesterday. “I’ve had my phones jammed for three weeks.

Yesterday I had three people answering them continuously all day.

To think that you’re going to intimidate a senator or anysenator into voting one way or the other by gorging your phones with phone calls — most of whom don’t even know where Gulfport, Mississippi, is — is not an effective tactic. But it’s their right to do that.”

That’s right, Trent, it is our right, and you are feeling it!

Snooper, in simple terms, the ONLY barrier left for the Senate to pass this bill is YOU. That is why I’m calling for an even greater grassroots uprising than before.

Whether they formally bring the amnesty bill back on Friday, or Monday really doesn’t matter. What matters is that they are bringing amnesty back, and it is up to grassroots America to stop them cold!

+ + Action #1: Faxes and Phone Calls

Snooper, if you have not scheduled faxes in the past few days, do so right now. We must have faxes flooding the Senate every day until AMNESTY IS DEAD. Use our FaxFire system or fax them yourself (info. provided here):

After scheduling your faxes, call your two senators.

We’ve gotten many reports of citizens calling their Senators EVERY DAY, and I want to challenge every member of our team to do the same. Here’s a number of KEY talking points:

1. You are disappointed that the Senate is reconsidering the amnesty bill.

2. A “yes” vote on cloture is a “yes” vote for amnesty.

3. Vote NO on cloture for the Bush-Kennedy Amnesty bill.

Your two senators:

Sen. Cornyn 202/224-2934
Sen. Hutchison (202)224-5922

I’m also asking team members from Mississippi to contact Mr. Lott, to let him know that his constituents who oppose amnesty certainly know where Gulfport is!

Here’s his number: 202/224-6253

Or call his district offices: Jackson, 601/965-4644;
Gulfport, 228/863-1988; Pascagoula, 228/762-5400;
Oxford, 662/234-3774

To recap, AMNESTY IS COMING BACK perhaps as soon as Friday and certainly by next Monday. We’ve been told the back-room deal cut last week is in motion, and a plan to manipulate Senate rules and tie the hands of Senators opposing the amnesty bill is underway.

YOU AND I are the last line of defense!

Thanks for your help fighting amnesty!

P.S: I’ve just heard that the AFL-CIO is finally realizing that an amnesty bill would devastate and demoralize their membership. They have come out strongly against this bill!

  1. Isn’t it odd how both parties seem to come together when it comes to stabbing Americans in the back with this issue.
    I don’t care what illegals want, what a bunch of pro illegals want, congress SHOULD REALLY CARE what WE want.
    I fax this bunch of sad representatives in both houses every day. If they are so willing to sell us out then I have no room for giving them money or support in any election.
    It isn’t just congress, President Bush has made it very clear where he stands, YOU USED US. You are suppose to be OUR President, d@mn it act like then.
    All of them have driven a wedge between WE THE PEOPLE figuring that we all would be tearing each other apart and paying NO attention to what they are doing, tough luck Bush & pals we are.
    You don’t care because you will not be running for any public office, Mr. President you will still need our support on other matters.
    I’m getting tired of what you call compassionate conservate
    for I’m finding out just who your compassionate about, and it sure isn’t us. The ones that put you in office, the ones that campaigned for you, gave it our all, just so you can sell out America!! Anyone who votes for this bil should look for another job.
