After weeks of backroom deals and procedural maneuvering, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's rush to pass the 1,200 page Senate amnesty bill comes to a close TODAY!

Our sources say they expect a final vote to end all debate on the legislation today at 11:30 a.m. If that vote passes, then a final vote on the bill is expected at 2 p.m.

Call your Senators NOW and tell them to vote against S.744:

Toll-Free 888-995-8349, or if circuits are busy call their direct numbers HERE.

  1. Vote NO to the motion to end debate on the bill and
  2. Vote NO on final passage.
The Senate already passed the Corker-Hoeven amendment to the bill earlier this week that added $38 billion in special interest carve-outs to secure votes of on-the-fence Senators. These include: Call your Senators NOW and tell them to vote against S.744:

The purpose of passing a Federal “reform” immigration bill this year is to allow illegal alien invaders from Mexico, and other Central and South American Socialist Countries, to vote for Socialist-Democrats and appeasing RINOs in the 2014 and 2016 USA National Elections for more debt-generating welfare to illegal alien invaders.

These future voters should be called “McCain-Rubio Democrats,” as no other Senators have done more to encourage gullible RINOs to appease and otherwise cave-in to debt-dependent Democrats than these two sorry RINO Senators.

Stand your ground, FReepers! Raise the Gadsden Battle Flag!

It is us against the gullible supporters of Obamanation!

For example:

While Rubio and his Eight Senate Gangsters put out political smoke and mirrors to “get a bill passed this year,” nothing they have said will change the basic problem of aliens illegally invading the USA.

The Basic Problem: Illegal aliens invade the USA for Welfare and Wages.

Solutions that address the Basic Problem:

1.) End the Anchor Baby Law.

2.) End the Hospital Emergency Room No Payment Law (EMTALA).

3.) End ANY other Welfare to Aliens.

4.) Fine US employers $1,000 per day per employee who is an alien.

5.) Spend NO money on “securing the border.” It is a bottomless money pit.

6.) Spend money on Chainlink/ Concertina wire desert prisons for the EXISTING Federal Law for a mandatory 6 month imprisonment for repeat offenders who have invaded our Country more than once.

7.) Transfer Border Invasion Enforcement to the US National Guard in each State, and thus under the control of the Governor of each State. The less Federal involvement, the better.

8.) Repeal all State and Federal Laws that prohibit voter officials and Police from requesting proof of US Citizenship for any reason what so ever.

9.) Be as hostile to all illegal alien invaders as we should be to all Federal politicians and Federal Judges who vote for or support another Ted Kennedy-style amnesty bill with no significant Federal enforcement.

Contact your local TEA Party, and plan to kick the sorry RINOs and even sorrier Democrats out of Congress in 2014!

It is all about the money FReepers, YOUR tax money.

Your Phone Calls are Making an Impact on Capitol Hill

Stop Amnesty.

Tell congressmen we don’t want ANY bill passed, no matter what they promise. This bill is Amnesty for 30 million illegals, and a 1200 page bill that brings in 80 million 3rd world immigrants. The bill will destroy the U.S. and will turn the USA into a socialist state as is the democrats/Obama’s plan.

To call your Member of Congress:
US Capitol Switchboard (202) 224-312

Michelle Bachman explained. ANY bill no matter if it promises all the border security in the world will be a trojan horse.NO bill at all must come out of the House because it will be merged with the Senate Amnesty and trojan horse bill. Call congress.

Tell them to stop all Amnesty or immigration bills.they are all trojan horse bills. some will promise border security that will never be enforced anyway. but in the bill will be the virus:

at least 3 ways to destroy the USA

1. amnesty to 30 million illegals and chain migration.

2. Amnesty forever to ANY foreigner in the 3rd world. all he has to say is he’s seeking political asylum .there are 6 billion poor in the 3rd world . and this bill will allow any of them to come here , all they have to do is to get on a boat and come here.
3. many more work visas for many occupations

Bachmann explained it . The House will write a border security bill only . then in conference the senate will add the virus and then bring it back to the house. then the conservatives won’t vote for it but democrats will all vote for it so then they only need 10% of republicans to pass Amnesty and the virus that will destroy America. so any bill at all will be added the virus . so best thing is for Boner to not let any immigration bill at all come out of the House. that is the only hope . call boner and the members of the House.

But also call the Senators . there is a chance we could still stop it in the Senate as Rush said if we melt the phone lines.

I fear it is too late with the senate. Especially with treasonous Micro Booboo, McCrazy and Slimeball Graham Cracker on the democrats side.

I wish somebody would tell me why we end up with just plain stupid people like this? Are we simpletons? Stupid? Too trusting? Wishful thinkers? Dreamers?

I just know I am going to spend as much money as I can afford to get these three sewer dwellers defeated.

I appreciate your passion but I don't like to misrepresent myself; I'm sure that the people of Arkansas can let him know how they think about this issue.

I'm actually saddened and distressed that we are in such a dire situation. Let's see what happens today and maybe we can stop this thing in the House.

If a “politician” was an illegal alien that falsified documents, committed fraud, etc. this bill would let him/her off scott-free. No fines, no jail time, no back taxes. Makes you go “hmmmmmmmmm”.

I think they’ve voted to end debate. Just called Dan Coats office 202-224-5623 and staff said he hasn’t released how he’s going to vote, but he doesn’t support the immigration bill as it is right now. Huh?

The vote will happen very soon. Call your senators again.

Thanks for naming and shaming the 11 Traitors.

From the test vote of 6/24, of 16 R-Traitors, it looks like today gained Alexander (R-TN) and lost Wicker, Heller, McConnell and Cornyn. McConnell and Cornball are both up for re-election in 2014.

Not sure why Sen Lee (R-UT) didn't vote.

Do I have the count correct?

Here is my reply to the RNC plea for more money that I received today.

You want me to send my money to a party that treats its constituents like this? Even though I don’t always agree with her she at least has the common decency to have an intern answer her constituents letters. All I ever get from Flake is what you see here....nothing...sometimes called the “bed bug’ letter and sent automatically at that.. If he’d stop wasting time chasing down ways to give illegals amnesty he might get something productive AND CONSTITUTIONAL accomplished. Your party is going down big time not because of the Hispanic vote but because you have chosen to ignore the Constitutional responsibilities you swore to uphold and have sent real Americans, real conservatives out to find someone who still believes in the United States of America and not the imperative that seems to permeate the Senate and HOR. which is all out pandering to whatever the DNC and media dictate. Grow a pair for God’s sake. Grow a pair!.

In short...no bucks till you come back to the Right! When you compromise with EVIL all you can get is EVIL!


Senator Jeff Flake (Senator@flake.senate.gov)Add to contacts 6/26/13
To

Thank you for contacting me to share your concerns and opinions. If you have an urgent matter and would like to request immediate assistance, please contact my office at (202) 224-4521.

Senator Jeff Flake


You are receiving this letter because you recently wrote to Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick.

June 25, 2013

Thank you for contacting my office and sharing your opinion on the important issue of immigration. I’m here to represent my constituents, so it’s important that I hear directly from you. I’m working hard to represent District One by reaching across the aisle on efforts to create jobs, fight for our veterans, and protect Social Security and Medicare for seniors and working families.

I understand that you are concerned about immigration. Because Arizona is a border state, we have suffered from years of federal inaction to fix a broken system. As a former prosecutor, I want to make sure our Border Patrol and law enforcement have the tools to take on criminal cartels and smugglers. That’s why in the 111th Congress I worked to put more boots on the ground and ensure the border region was better equipped to protect our communities. I pushed for $600 million in additional border security funding, and I proposed legislation that included all Arizona counties in a highly successful anti-drug trafficking program.

I’m optimistic my colleagues from both parties will work together to prioritize border security, but we also need a federal immigration strategy. Farmers, ranchers and local businesses need an effective system to fill labor needs. Schools and universities need to educate children who live in the shadows because they were brought here by their parents. I am pleased that a bipartisan group of senators, including Arizona senators McCain and Flake, have introduced legislation that tries to do just that. After years of stalemate, a common-sense effort is finally underway to solve a problem that reaches every corner of our nation. Let’s seize this moment — it is good for Arizona.

I need to hear from you so I can give you a voice in Congress. Please sign up for my eNewsletter updates at kirkpatrick.house.gov/contact/newsletter. On social media, ‘like’ my Facebook page at facebook.com/RepKirkpatrick or follow me on Twitter at twitter.com/RepKirkpatrick. To reach my offices or find constituent resources, visit my website at kirkpatrick.house.gov.

Thank you again for contacting my office and sharing your opinion. If we can help you resolve a federal matter, please do not hesitate to contact us at one of our five district offices in Arizona.

Sincerely,

The Honorable Ann Kirkpatrick
U.S. Representative, Arizona District One

Can anyone tell me the significance of getting 70 votes? I kept hearing it like it was a big deal for whatever reason.

All I know is the damn bill passed the Senate which is another thing to piss me off today.

Well, “reportedly,” 70 votes gives the Senate some sort of mandate when their traitorous bill is sent to the House.

Too damn bad, they don’t have that mandate.
