Driving liberals, dhimmis and illegal alien apologists absolutely insane since 2005...

Senate Cloture Vote Scheduled For Tomorrow

By Greg L | 25 June 2007 | National Politics, Illegal Aliens | 2 Comments

Once again, it’s time to start melting the phones of our Virginia Senators with citizens demanding that they stop this god-awful illegal alien amnesty bill. From Joe over at NovaTownHall:

The vote on cloture on the motion to proceed will likely take place Tuesday, late morning, so today and tomorrow morning - the next 24 hours - are the prime time for working the phones and faxes.

To recap: We need to send the message to these senators that “a vote for cloture is a vote for amnesty,” so we want them to either vote NO on cloture, or simply fail to vote on Tuesday. If cloture passes, the bill will move forward and will likely pass the Senate for the reasons explained here.

Voting for cloture, and later voting against the bill (after the bill has been determined to have enough votes to pass) will offer no cover because we voters understand that any senator voting for cloture is voting for amnesty.

More information about why this is such a terrible bill can be found here and here, and here are seven things you can do right now to help kill the bill.

Click the following link for a complete listing of contact information for all the “on the fence” senators, and PLEASE start contacting them. Also, pass this information to everyone you know who is concerned about stopping this disastrous legislation before it goes any further.

Here is contact information for the senators who should be the priority for the next 24 hours. (Contact information for all U.S. senators can be found here).

    Called ‘em both.

    Warner’s DC office put me on hold, so after a couple of minutes I called his Richmond office and got right through.

    Webb’s DC office was busy but I called back a couple minutes later.

    I asked both to vote against cloiture on that “god awful illegal alien amnesty bill”.

    Immigration reform is a hot button issue that has
    aroused great angst and passion on all sides. My
    business and political experience tell me that the
    road to a resolution often begins with finding
    some common ground. Besides the need to better
    secure our borders, the next most obvious and
    acknowledged is the adverse negative impact on
    local government budgets and the need for federal
    financial help to mitigate the cost of illegal/undocumented
    -New York Times last week: “The White House
    noted that the positive impact tends to accrue to
    the federal level, while net cost tend to be
    concentrated at the state and local government level,
    where education and health care are provided.”
    - WaPo today: “The federal government has authority
    over who comes in this country … but the people
    who are responsible for helping them integrate and
    acclimate are state and local governments” - Ann
    Morse of the National Conference of State Legislatures.
    - And I have a file folder full of more quotes on the same
    issue - all I have shared with our Virginia
    representatives in Washington - apparently to little
    avail. The issue isn’t unknown or disputed, but
    there is nothing in the current bill that helps heavily
    impacted communities like Manassas.
    Hopefully, you will also share this concern when you
    contact our representatives.
    Thank you for your help.
