If God is willing, this is going to be a very intensive day of posting on the immigration issue. Please check back periodically when you have some free time because I have a slew of important information to circulate (and the overwhelming majority is by other people so please do not fear being drowned in my tedius ramblings).
The timing is crucial because the U.S. Senate is about to do something monumentally stupid this week. If you don't fully understand why S.2611 is such a bad idea, first please read this report by Robert Rector detailing the huge number of immigrants the Senate bill would bring.
Then, see the note below for an immediate action item.
Then, please visit back over the next couple hours because we'll have the latest Guard the Borders Blogburst, and then a transcript of last week's Judicial Watch symposium on illegal immigration.
If you are not already of the opinion that illegal immigration is a clear and present danger to the United States - and that the Senate and Bush administration proposals to address it are pure lunacy - you will be after reading these transcripts. I'm taking the day off of work today just to try and get all this material posted, in the hope that some readers might see fit to tell their senators to FOLLOW THE HOUSE'S LEAD ON THIS ISSUE.
This is from American Daughter
The Senate is poised to pass S. 2611 this week, the giant amnesty bill that wold change the demographics of our country and start us on the slide into rampant crime, drug culture, and third world poverty. Every thinking American is needed at this moment to phone, fax, or visit their United States Senators and oppose this legislation.
The Senators will try to convince you that this is not amnesty, just a guest worker program with provisions for a path to citizenship. Donâ€™t be fooled. They are giving away our country to people who have not paid for it. The only legislation that makes sense, if we are to remain an educated and prosperous and freedom-loving people, is the â€œenforcement onlyâ€ bill from the House of Representatives.
The votes on the floor of the Senate are convoluted. What is actually needed today is a NO vote on cloture for S. 2611 to allow continued discussion and prevent it from going to a vote. If you have the time and can make the effort, follow all the tricky amendments on the scorecard at
Otherwise, just find the phone numbers for your Senators here and tell them how deeply opposed you are to S. 2611.
