Our Federal Government Is Ignoring The Will Of The People

| | Comments (1) | TrackBacks (0)

As this morning's Washington Post reports, over 1,100 immigration bills were introduced in state legislators this year, double the number from 2006. The reason? Our federal government has failed in its responsibility to enforce the laws. As we reported recently, the current bill under consideration in the Senate would nullify all local enforcement efforts (and hand a nice fat bonus to corrupt employers).

So the feds are not only NOT doing their job, but they are trying to make it impossible for localities to get their own houses in order.

Your Monday morning assignment: Kill S. 1639!

This post contains contact information - office locations, phone and (where available) fax numbers - for a group of senators who have been identified as on the fence on the cloture vote on proceeding with S 1639. The information is all below the fold.

Thanks to Ace for the list of "wobbly" senators. I went ahead and added John Warner in since many of you are in Virginia and should be contacting him. Ace reports we need 3/4 of these to vote against cloture.

You will find the local offices are a great way to get through when the DC lines are jammed, especially for faxing.

The vote on cloture on the motion to proceed will likely take place Tuesday, late morning, so today and tomorrow morning - the next 24 hours - are the prime time for working the phones and faxes.

To recap: We need to send the message to these senators that "a vote for cloture is a vote for amnesty," so we want them to either vote NO on cloture, or simply fail to vote on Tuesday. If cloture passes, the bill will move forward and will likely pass the Senate for the reasons explained here.

Voting for cloture, and later voting against the bill (after the bill has been determined to have enough votes to pass) will offer no cover because we voters understand that any senator voting for cloture is voting for amnesty.

More information about why this is such a terrible bill can be found here and here, and here are seven things you can do right now to help kill the bill.

Click the following link for a complete listing of contact information for all the "on the fence" senators, and PLEASE start contacting them. Also, pass this information to everyone you know who is concerned about stopping this disastrous legislation before it goes any further.

Here is contact information for the senators who should be the priority for the next 24 hours. (Contact information for all U.S. senators can be found here).

Don't be shy about contacting senators not from your state, because their action on this bill affects every American.

I cannot get through to Webb. When you press "2" to speak to a staffer, it hangs up on you.

I did get through to a Warner staffer. I was only on hold for five minutes!
