Senators Must Face the Music on Immigration!
Senate Recesses for Memorial Day!

The first week of debate on the Kennedy-Kyl amnesty bill (S. Amdt. 1150 to S. 1348) has wrapped up and Senators are on their way home to face the music on their determined effort to grant amnesty to the 10-12 million illegal aliens here. Thanks to your calls, not even pro-amnesty Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) could force a vote on final passage of the bill until after the recess.

    • Call their district office and ask for any local events where the Senator will be appearing

    • Make signs opposing the amnesty, grab a dozen friends, and stand peacefully outside your Senators' office (be sure to call your local newspaper and let them know what you're doing)

    • Call local talk radio and write letters to the editor

    • Call your local Republican or Democratic party officials and let them know you will not support any candidate who votes for the Kennedy-Kyl amnesty.
