Emergency Amnesty Alert!
Harry Reid is trying to get the “DREAM ACT” illegal alien amnesty bill passed before the current session ends! The bill would grant amnesty to an estimated 2.1 million illegal aliens.
Harry Reid is desperate and pulling dirty tricks. The Democrats just added an amendment to the bill to give a one time $250 Social Security bonus check to senior citizens. This desperate attempt to buy off the elderly just shows how unpopular this amnesty bill is.
Reid is expected to force a cloture vote by the end of the week. A cloture vote is needed to block any Republican filibuster.
Your phone calls have been instrumental in thwarting amnesty bills for the past four years! Take a moment to call the offices of your US Senators now and demand they vote against cloture of the “DREAM ACT.”
Two Democratic Senators, Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Mark Pryor of Arkansas, have pledged not to vote for closure and not to vote for the bill if it gets closure. However Reid believes he has found two Republican sell-outs to achieve his 60 votes. If the session ends before cloture is obtained, Reid will be unlikely to get cloture when the next session starts.
The two Republicans that Harry Reid believes will vote for cloture are Republican Sens. Dick Lugar of Indiana and Bob Bennett of Utah.
If you live in Indiana or Utah, call their offices now. Tell their staff that you are a resident of the Senator’s state and vote in every election. Then tell them that you will campaign for whoever runs against them in the next election if they vote for cloture.
Lugar, Richard G. – (R – IN)
Bennett, Robert F. – (R – UT)
