Skip to comments.We Need 7-10 More Votes to NO on Cloture Next Week (Shamnesty)

|Take a look at this list -- figure out what you should do with Senators from your state or neighbor|
We need 41 Senators to vote NO on cloture next Tuesday or to not show up for the vote.
Sen. Johnson (D-S.D.) is still seriously ill and expected to be a no-show.
We believe we have solid commitments from 32 other Senators that they will vote NO on cloture that would allow the Kennedy/Bush amnesty (S. 1639) to come to the Senate floor for debate.
That would give us 33 of the 41 we need.
Congratulations to all of you who have elected Senators solidly in our camp or who have persuaded Senators to move to the anti-amnesty side -- those Senators in this list:
32 DEFINITE 'NO' ON AMNESTY CLOTURE
Many of you will find ways to express tremendous appreciation and to help solidify them so that no offer from the White House or party leadership can turn them at the last moment.
12 SENATORS LEANING NO ON FINAL PASSAGE BUT PROBABLY LEANING YES ON CLOTURE (when it counts)
Please do everything you can to get to these Senators and help them understand what is at stake and where the citizens of your state stand.
ALL OTHER SENATORS APPEAR TO BE PLANNING TO VOTE TO HELP PASS A BILL THAT WOULD BE:

If S. 1348 if revived, please vote NO on cloture.
Surely you won’t impose taxpaying citizens with the extraordinary costs of keeping illegal aliens in the country. It would be far better to use enforcement to cause the illegal workers to return to their home countries over time.
The Census Bureau finds that we have 23 million “less-educated” American adults who do not now have a job. Don’t pass S. 1348 and give away their jobs forever.
A Senator [Feinstein] responded to us with this: ...our borders are broken, our national security is compromised, and there is no feasible way to identify and deal with the 10 to 12 million undocumented people now living in the United States.
How much simpler would it be then to get congress to agree on the following bills?:
Bill 1: Fund a fence, build a fence. (Think jobs and national security)
Bill 2: Boost border security. (More jobs and national security)
Bills 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9...: No feasible way to “deal with 10 to 12 million undocumented people”?
Presumably that means, dealing with enforcement and deportation. If we can’t deal with that, then let’s simply stop dealing with them in these much more costly ways.
Stop dealing them jobs.
Stop dealing them licenses to drive.
Stop dealing them an education.
Stop dealing them medical care.
Stop dealing them places to live.
Stop dealing them banking, loans, and money transfers.
Stop releasing arrested aliens in our borders.
Stop publishing government ballots and assistance in foreign languages.
Stop dealing them amnesty.
Shortly thereafter, there wont be 10 to 12 million undocumented people here to deal with.
And should any of these bills fail, at least the rest will accomplish something for borders and security, unlike the current bloated bill.
Thanks for the info.
Is there anyone with a Wyoming ping list?
Wyoming folks need to get on the horn with their new Senator (Barrasso) to make sure he knows that if he wants to keep his new job past the next election, he better vote NO on Cloture on this bill.
Also I see Kyl is peddling some enforcement amendment to get more from the GOP side to vote for his scam but it's like everything else, it will supposedly come after amnesty is immediately granted, which means we'll never see it. They really take us for fools.
Just say NO to Illegal Alien Amnesty!! Keep calling!! Its NOT OVER!!

They really take us for fools.We put these freaks in office, didn't we? No wonder they think we're fools.
We need 7 out of 12 on the fence, and 6 of ‘em are Dems. Looks kind of grim.
No one said it was going to be easy!
Step up to the plate!
Think outside the box!
What the mind can conceive, the mind can achieve!
Attitudes are contagious. Is yours worth catching?
Let’s give it the old college try!
When the going gets tough, the tough get going.
Lead, follow, or get out of the way.
If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem.
Raise your game.
Hang in there.
Raise the bar.
Get your ducks in a row.
Swing for the fences.
And finally . . .
Take it to the next level.
I thought as few as 12 “intestine-endowed” Senators could filibuster this through the July 4th holiday if they really “went to the mattresses.” As long as they play this “gentleman’s game” instead of taking out the baseball bats, this will pass.
If there are Senators who would do that, really filibuster so the clowns have to stay there with quorum calls, they’ll attract a crowd in the Senate gallery like you saw in “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.” And, I will fly to D.C. to see it and talk radio will cover every second. The folks who do it will be heroes to the US public.
True but Kyl lied during this past election and has done a complete 180 from what he said he’d do. He went from being pro-American and pro-borders to becoming a scab on the issue. There’s talk of a recall in Arizona and that’s what they need to do.
With Mr. Byrd directing this (he knows every Senate rule ever contemplated), you could filibuster this dog into oblivion and the Honorable Senator from West Virginia, in deference to his age, would not have to be even near the Senate floor.
I’m sorry but IIRC you can’t recall a US Senator. Other Freepers have posted as much.
I’m surprised you got a lucid answer from Senator Feinstein’s office. I wrote to her several times, and got replies back that referred to legislation or pending legislation totally different from the subject I had written on. Gave up on even trying with her!
Believe it or not, Martinez in his election campaign also said he was against amnesty.
Looks bleak. How does the House look?
You did better than I. I wrote to Kerry, Kennedy, and Neal. Not one replied. But that’s Assholeachusetts,a state I can’t wait to leave.
This list is very helpful! Thank you! I will continue to work on Boxer!
