Tell Your Senators to vote NO on cloture on the motion to proceed to the Kyl-Kennedy Amnesty!!

Earlier this week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) filed cloture (a procedural motion requiring 60 votes to pass) on the motion to proceed to the once-dead immigration bill. You helped kill the bill two weeks ago, but due to another behind-closed-doors deal, the Senate is planning on bringing the bill back. The vote on the cloture motion will likely take place early next week. Senators who vote YES on the motion want to resurrect the amnesty bill, while Senators who vote NO want to leave it in the grave. Eagle Forum urges a NO vote and will score a YES vote as a vote for amnesty!

In just the last few hours, we are seeing reports that more and more Senators are getting the message that this bill needs to remain dead. This is encouraging, but not a victory. Now is the time to redouble our efforts and drive a stake through the heart of the Kyl-Kennedy amnesty for good!

Reasons to Oppose Resurrecting the Amnesty Bill

  • This bill has already failed 3 cloture votes (Roll Call votes 203, 204, 206)
  • No Senator, to our knowledge, has reported receiving more calls or constituent contacts supporting the bill than those opposing it.
  • This bill has circumvented the legislative process by being negotiated behind closed doors, stifling debate, and setting up a rigged amendment process with a predetermined outcome.
  • No one—conservative or liberal—wants this bill. Conservatives oppose it across the board and now the AFL-CIO is against the bill, along with several Hispanic interest groups—Hispanic Federation and League of United Latin American Citizens (Washington Times, 6/21/07).

It’s time to put this bill in the grave for good! We need your help. They expect we will get tired and go away—we won’t! Keep calling and don’t let up!

Take Action

Call your Senators and tell them to vote NO on cloture and leave the amnesty bill in its grave! Tell them Eagle Forum will be scoring this vote! A vote in favor of cloture will be scored as a vote for amnesty!
