Stop Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s Latest Amnesty Attempt!

Monday, October 22, 2007

THIS IS AN EMERGENCY CALL TO ACTION: We must stop Senator Harry Reid from pushing the Dream Act – Amnesty for Illegal Aliens.

After the American people overwhelmingly rose up against the big compromise in June that traded an amnesty for some mediocre extra enforcement, Sen. Reid is trying to push through an amnesty WITHOUT ANY ENFORCEMENT MEASURES! He is using the Rule 14 to avoid any committee debate, hearings or deliberations.

CALL YOUR SENATORS: 800-862-5530 / 202-224-3121

TELL THEM TO VOTE NO ON THE S. 2205 CLOTURE ON WEDNESDAY.

WE NEED 41 NO VOTES TO GUARANTEE KILLING IT.

STOP HARRY REID AND THE DEMOCRATS WHO WANT TO GIVE ILLEGAL ALIENS MORE RIGHTS THAN YOU — A U.S. CITIZEN AND VOTER!!

    You are very much entitled to your beliefs. But you are not putting the whole story in your blog about the Dream Act.

    It would apply only to individuals brought to the U.S. at least 5 years ago as children, who have grown up here (but are still under 30 years old), and who have remained in school and out of trouble. They could get a green card 6 years after graduating from high school if during that time they continue on to college or serve in the military.

    I am an American citizen, born and raised in this country, and there is no way that I could feel bad about our government giving a chance to a child who is trying to do the right thing. Please, put all of the facts if you are going to oppose something this important.

    Emails have very little affect. The only way the protest is heard is by writing a snail mail letter, faxing and calling! The more the office is distrupted the better. This is the only way the staff feel the heat and scream to their boss!

    Angela, the facts are that laws that have been set in place should be enforced or they are, in effect, not a law at all. This should be addressed FIRST before anything of this nature should be brought before Congress. There are so many holes in this DREAM Act that it is difficult to decide where to begin, but I will name a few. What becomes of the siblings and parents of those that apply for and receive citizenship? Are they going to simply allow teens to stay and force the parents to return to Mexico? What message does this send to all the immigrants that went through the legal process to become American citizens? And how would passage of this act prevent further infringements on our borders? If anything it will only serve to ecourage further illegal immigration, as did the amnesty program in 1986 under the Reagan administration. What we need is legislation that will improve enforcement of existing laws. Lack of enforcement is what has led to this debacle in the first place.

    By the way, snail mail is too slow at this juncture. It is always held up due to the security processing of mail to check for suspicious substances. Better to fax or call, and the sooner the better. Tomorrow (Wednesday) they are supposedly voting on cloture.

    freevolition,

    Thank you for answering me in a polite, productive manner. I almost didn’t leave a message for fear that it would end up like every other discussion board…two sides calling each other names, rather than individuals sharing there thoughts with the desire for better understanding.

    I truly try not to back a party but a policy…not easy to do, but I try. I appreciate you sharing your thoughts and hopefully, whatever decision is made, it will end up being fair for all people. You make some very good points, and I hope good, healthy debate will continue. Take care.
