LAST CHANCE TO BEAT AMNESTY!
Tell Your Senators to vote NO on cloture on the Kyl-Kennedy Amnesty!!
Tuesday evening, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid filed cloture (to end debate) on the Senate Kyl-Kennedy immigration bill. A vote will occur on Thursday on whether to continue debating the bill and offering amendments or whether to vote on final passage. Eagle Forum urges a NO vote on cloture! We will score a yes vote as a vote for amnesty!
We need your calls more than ever! It only takes 41 votes to defeat the cloture motion! Senator Reid said yesterday that if cloture is not invoked this week, then he will pull the bill from the floor. Senators know if they have to keep debating the bill, they will be forced to oppose it because public outrage is overwhelming. They want to pass it quickly this week and then wipe their hands of the consequences of granting amnesty to 12 to 20 million illegal aliens. Call and let them know you are watching them and that opposition to the bill is not letting up!
Republicans especially need to be pressured to vote NO on cloture. Few Republican amendments have been voted on, including Senator Jim Inhofe’s (R-OK) Official English amendment! Eagle Forum opposes the bill on its merits, but even Republicans or Democrats who are inclined to support the bill should recognize that more debate and amendments are needed.
Your calls are working! Senate offices are telling us you are all being very effective. Keep it up for at least one more round! Get at least five friends who have not called yet to get active and call this time!
Call your Senators and tell them to vote NO on cloture! Tell them Eagle Forum will be scoring this vote! A vote in favor of cloture will be scored as a vote for amnesty!
All Senators should be called, but these are especially important:
Targets: Brownback, Burr, Chambliss, Craig, Domenici, Dorgan, Ensign, Gregg, Isakson, Kyl, Landrieu, Lott, McConnell, McCaskill, Nelson (NE), Pryor, Stabenow, Sununu, Tester, Voinovich
