BE SURE TO CALL ALL OF THESE KEY AMNESTY SENATORS EVERY DAY UNTIL THE BILL IS DEAD & BURIED !!!
Steve Elliott of Grassfire.org just sent an update with the latest "Amendments for Amnesty" deal that is being negotiated as we speak in Washington, DC. Here is what he had to say:
A back-room plan is currently underway to bring Bush-Kennedy back and get it quickly passed through the Senate. I call it "amendments for amnesty."
Here's what's happening.
President Bush and the Amnesty Republicans are attempting to
convince about a dozen Republicans to support "cloture" on
Bush-Kennedy in exchange for a commitment that a set list
of amendments will be considered -- thus, "amendments for amnesty."
Also, Bush and the amnesty leaders are strong-arming conservatives
into accepting the "amendments for amnesty" deal or face being
banished into Senate oblivion.
Amnesty Republicans have already submitted their list of amendments
to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Once the "amendments for
amnesty" deal is finalized between Reid and the Republicans,
the bill will be quickly brought back to the floor. The amendments
will be defeated and amnesty passed.
+ + We can stop "Amendments For Amnesty"!
Dan, this is the FOURTH TIME our leaders have gone
behind closed doors to work out some secret scheme to get this
bill passed. Despite unprecedented and overwhelming grassroots
opposition, they think they can still pull off their legislative,
