Eagle Forum Alert

Strike Out the Amnesty!
Vote YES on the Cornyn, Grassley, Inhofe, and Vitter Amendments!

Thank you for all your calls on the Kennedy-Kyl Amnesty bill! You are making a difference! Senators are now considering various amendments and we wanted to give you an update on where things stand.

Amendments Already Voted On:

  • Dorgan Amendment — eliminate the guest worker program.
    Failed 31-64 (Roll Call 174)

  • Bingaman Amendment — limit guest workers to 200,000 annually.
    Passed 74-24 (Roll Call 175)

  • Coleman Amendment — allow law enforcement officers and government officials to inquire as to the legal status of individuals they serve.
    Failed 48-49 (Roll Call 177)


    Update on Pending Amendments:

  • Cornyn Amendment — deny any chance at legal status to gang members, terrorists, sex offenders, and alien absconders (those already under deportation orders).
    Eagle Forum urges a YES vote

  • Vitter Amendment — strike Title VI, the amnesty portion, of the Senate bill
    Eagle Forum urges a YES vote

  • Grassley Amendment — allow streamlined visa revocations for terrorists
    Eagle Forum urge a YES vote

  • Inhofe Amendment — declares English as our official national language
    Eagle Forum urges a YES vote
    We are hearing that some Senators want to water-down the Inhofe Official English Amendment. Outrageous! Over 85% of Americans want English declared as our official language (Rasmussen Poll, June 2006).
  • Take Action

    The Senate will likely vote on the Cornyn, Vitter, and Grassley amendments today. Call and urge a YES vote on each of these amendments. Also, call Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and ask them to have a vote on the Inhofe English amendment before the recess!

    Call Your Senators Today!
