another update from NumbersUSA-- Our side is fully charged for battle, because we're not fighting for special interests or cheap labor, like they are. We're fighting for the future of America and American workers. And the Senate is taking notice! Just read what the chairman of the Senate Republican Conference had to say: "If you listen to the calls, the e-mails our offices are getting right now, the bombardment is pretty one-sided." --Senator John Thune "GOP Support for Immigration Bill Dissipating," Politico Did you catch the name of that article? "GOP Support for Immigration Bill Dissipating." See, you are having an effect on Washington! The pro-amnesty crowd may have hundreds of millions of dollars and an army of lobbyists, but we have the overwhelming support of the American people, and we're letting Congress know it. Amnesty Proponents Play More Tricks. Now, amnesty proponents know they have to shake up the game. The latest trick is an amendment by Sens. Corker (R-TN) and Hoeven (R-SD). The amendment solves nothing; the amnesty will still come before enforcement. It's simply a ruse to give the impression that the bill has changed since all of your calls and faxes were sent. We now expect a vote on the Corker-Hoeven amendment on Monday and a final vote on Thursday. Both need 60 votes for passage. Before Thursday's vote, we need all our members to call their senators and tell them you still oppose amnesty before enforcement! There has NEVER been a vote in Congress as critical for preserving America and its prosperity. This bill simply cannot pass. We're glad that hundreds of thousands of you have used NumbersUSA's toll-free calls, free services, and we are so grateful for your activism. This has no cost to you, but it is very expensive for us; we're almost tapped out. We are absolutely committed to keeping those services free, so we can have the greatest possible political impact.
