Reid’s latest evil attempt to give amnesty to just about anyone failed completely. But , don’t worry in about a week the corrupt bastards in Congress will be back again. We can thank the Republicans and a few democrats for putting a stop to it. Once again Ron Wyden Failed the People Of Oregon .
SENATE SWITCHBOARD — 202-224-3121
Friends, we don’t yet have the 41 sure NO votes that we must have to stop the DREAM Act amnesty in the Senate next week.
Scroll down to see the lists of the top phoning targets today. And don’t put off your calls. They are desperately needed today.
Pro-amnesty forces claim that their super-expensive, special toll-free telephone system processed 5,000 pro-amnesty phone calls to Senators yesterday.
They brag that they expect to be handling 10,000 pro-amnesty calls a day until the DREAM Act amnesty passes!
Friends, we have to match them.
Please look at the target lists below and start phoning some Senators.
The pro-amnesty forces are throwing everything they have into beating us. And I’m talking tens of millions of dollars that are backing the nation’s top union, religious, ethnic and academic leaders who are storming the offices of Congress with their last-minute, desperation push for this amnesty for an estimated 2.1 million illegal aliens.
YOU’VE ALREADY TALKED SEVERAL SENATORS
INTO OPPOSING THE ‘DREAM’ AMNESTY
You are making in-roads with your faxes and your phone calls since Tuesday.
Some Senators who previously have supported the DREAM Act amnesty have now publicly stated that they oppose DREAM as part of the Defense bill! Congratulations to all of you for these turnarounds:
Hooray for all of you who made the calls and sent the faxes!
ACTION: If you live in those states, call their offices and take just a moment to thank them for their pledge to oppose the DREAM Act.
SENATE SWITCHBOARD — 202-224-3121
Nelson’s and Hagan’s stated opposition, though, is not complete. It not clear if they will vote to kill the entire Defense bill in order to stop the amnesty. At present, it looks like there won’t be a direct vote on the amnesty, requiring Senators to stop the whole Defense bill and force leaders to bring a new, clean bill back to the floor.
So, push for a full pledge when you call to thank Hagan and Ben Nelson.
TOP FENCE-SITTING PROSPECTS WHO NEED YOUR PHONE CALL BEFORE THEY WILL PLEDGE AMNESTY OPPOSITION
As far as we know, none of the following Senators has committed either to oppose or support the DREAM Act amnesty as part of the Defense authorization bill next week.
For a number of mixed reasons, we believe these Senators are the ones of the uncommitted who are most likely to listen to reasonable persuasion from constituents asking for a NO vote.
ACTION: Call the DC office of these Senators (the 202 number). Of calling the local offices (the number on the second line) will be most helpful, as well.
If you’ve never called a Senate office, it isn’t hard. Just state your name to the staffer and quickly say you are calling to ask the Senator to OPPOSE the DREAM Act amnesty. Then give one reason for your opposition, say thank you and good-bye.

TOUGHER UNCOMMITTED TARGETS
— CAN YOU PERSUADE THEM?
Your first and most important phone calls are to the Senators above.
ACTION: The following list is of Senators who have shown a real proclivity toward amnesty but seem to have remained uncommitted. Under the pressure of the impending November elections, some of these Senators could be persuaded to vote NO.
I would emphasize with them that a controversial bill like this has no business being put inside a Defense bill, regardless of how they may feel about the amnesty itself.

SENATORS WHO ARE CO-SPONSORING THE ‘DREAM’ AMNESTY
Once you have done what you can with phone calls to the Senators on the lists above, you should look through this list to see who is causing all this problem by pushing so hard to give 2 million more permanent work permits to illegal aliens to compete with 22 million American and legal immigrant workers who can’t find a job.
You can reach these through the Switchboard at 202-224-3121 or in our Congress directory (I apologize that this directory is loading sluggishly today).
Give special attention to Boxer, Gillibrand, Lincoln and Mikulski, all of whom are running for re-election in November.
(CO) Bennet (not Bennett of Utah)
(CO) Udall (not Udall of New Mexico)
THANKS FOR CALLING TODAY.
WE CAN’T STOP CALLING . . . BECAUSE THE PRO-AMNESTY FORCES WON’T.

The US destroyed by mass illegal immigration and corrupt congress and outsourcing to India
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has scheduled a vote on the Dept. of Defense Authorization bill for Tuesday afternoon, and it’s likely the DREAM Act Amnesty will be attached to it as an amendment. CALL YOUR SENATORS NOW and urge them to oppose the DREAM Act. The number for the Capitol switchboard is (202) 224-3121. Just ask for your Senator’s office and tell them to VOTE NO on the DREAM Act. Read Roy’s blog for further analysis on the DREAM Act, and check your Action Board for a new fax to send to your two Senators.
The DREAM Act amnesty is a loophole-ridden, fraud enticing, chain migration nightmare. Illegal aliens don’t have to prove they qualify (they only have to say they do) and they don’t undergo background checks. The bill could literally amnesty anyone
