Cloture Vote on Amnesty Bill S1639: Senators Deaf to People – Debate Continues

Tuesday, June 26, 2007


2nd Cloture Vote on Amnesty Bill S1639 to take place 10:30AM, Thursday, June 28th

Update: How Senators voted for Cloture below:

The Cloture vote was 64 Yeas to 35 Nays – falling just 6 crucial votes short to stop Bill S1639. Now debate will continue on this horrible Amnesty Bill. See how your Senator voted here.

Any Senator who today voted Yes to proceed — voted YES for Amnesty no matter how they disguise it. These Senators are hoping that one of their amendments will make it to the final cut of 20 or so that can be introduced to the floor.

There will be another Cloture vote probably by Thursday to end debate — this will be the final crucial vote to kill this bill!

Don’t give up — if we keep the pressure on the cowards who voted yes — shame them on shamnesty we can still win!

For Updates See: Senate Logic on Amnesty S1639: “I voted yes for Cloture so I could vote no.”

    They are NOT listening to the people. Yes, they pay lip service. Nothing more. At least the MT Senators (both Democrats) are still in opposition to the bill even though it has been issued a new title. Small consolation at this point. I dunno. I thought our Senators and Representatives were supposed to uphold the Constitution and represent their constituents. Silly me.

    So while America is sending our men and women to die for the freedom of the people of other nations to express their will through a fair government, our Senate is ignoring the expressed will of the majority of legal citizens of the United States. Ironic.

    As a native Californian, I know firsthand the impact of illegal immigrants on the school, medical, social, and housing systems. Amnesty is not the answer. A system was not iniated after the last amnesty…and the number of illegals increased astrononmically. What is next? Completely eliminate legal immigration???

    No one has talked about the heath risks of illegal aliens. Why is there no provision for a health check in this bill especially in light of the fact that so many of them work in the food industry? Haven’t you heard about all the meat processing plants where the majority of workers, illegal aliens all, had tuberculosis? What are you people doing to protect the US public? Why isn’t a health check an issue of the bill? When my grandparents came to this country they had to undergo a health check at Ellis Island – so why do the illegal aliens of today get a pass?

    Good question, Mandy. One I’ve been asking as well. I think the answer is… they don’t give a tinker’s damn because it more than likely won’t affect them directly.

    It is unbelievable that my senators; Dem McCaskill votes no and Bond votes yes for cloture.
    It’s political grandstanding and arrogance at it’s worst.

    The whole thing is just wrong and they know it. We are tired of their so called feel good legislation. They are out of touch with the voters and reality. It is time to replace them all. Maybe then the newly elected would listen. It is now time for the voters to stand up and be counted. Stop putting these same incompetants back in office so they can continue the same silly nonsense. Why do we continue to take it. Enforce the existing laws. Stop wasting the tax payers time and money with new laws that still won’t work and of course also won’t be enforced.
