TELL YOUR SENATOR TO VOTE AGAINST AMNESTY
Posted by Staff
SENATE SWITCHBOARD -- 202-224-3121

AMNESTY COULD PASS SENATE TOMORROW (TUES)
-- DON'T PUT OFF YOUR PHONE CALLS

The pro-amnesty forces have now paid to set up phone banks across the country where they are calling all the cell phone numbers they picked up at open-borders rallies the last two years and then patching them through to Senate offices. They also are holding rallies at the offices of swing-vote Senators. They have all the money in the world to gin up pressure to vote for the DREAM Act amnesty this week.

ACTION: Go to your personalized NumbersUSA Action Board and send the new faxes to your Senators.

If you don't see a new fax, that is because both of your Senators have pledged to vote NO on the amnesty (congratulations).

ACTION: Look at the phone list below.

Call the Senators from your state.

Then, look at Senators from small and medium-small states and consider making calls to them (especially if you have any connection to that state in any way, or live in the same region).

YOU HAVE SENATE LEADERS CONFUSED & WORRIED

Your phone calls and faxes all last week are making some difference.

I'm not sure I've ever seen Senate leadership so confused about its exact course just a day before voting starts.

Senate Majority Leader Reid (D-Nev.) continues today to tell Senate Minority Leader McConnell (R-Ky.) that he will bring the Defense Authorization bill to the floor at 2:15 p.m. Tuesday and that the bill will have the DREAM Act amnesty in it.

But the No. 2 Senate Democratic leader, Durbin (D-Ill.), is telling the public that the bill will NOT have the amnesty in it. Rather, he says, the amnesty will be brought up as an amendment later in the week.

The first vote at 2:15 p.m. Tuesday will be a cloture vote requiring 60 YEAS to allow debate to even begin on the Defense bill.

Not knowing exactly what the form of the vote on DREAM will be, your best bet is just to keep calling Senators and saying that they must vote NO on anything that includes the DREAM amnesty.

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).

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.

DEMOCRATS WHO VOTED AGAINST AMNESTY IN 2007
BUT NOT YET RELIABLE THIS WEEK

Folks, if we don't hold these 7 Democrats, we may be in big trouble. Capitol Hill news services are reporting today that they don't find a single one of these who has yet committed to voting AGAINST the DREAM amnesty this week, even though they voted against it when NumbersUSA activists mobilized to kill it in autumn of 2007.

Not surprisingly, none of these 7 is up for re-election this year. So, you need to hit them forcefully enough to make them think you will remember when they DO come up for re-election in later years.

Some of these Senators are talking like there are significant changes in the bill that may allow them to vote for it this time. Talk about that when you call their offices. Tell them that this bill still:
covers everybody up to age 35
is wide open to fraud because people only have to CLAIM to meet criteria and the government has to PROVE that their claims are false
is open to at least 2.1 million illegal aliens (even before fraud)
allows illegal aliens to arrive as late as age 15 and claim that they don't know the language or culture of their home country and, thus, should not be forced to go back home
These are top priorities:

Sen. Pryor of Arkansas 202-224-2353
501-324-6336

Sen. Landrieu of Louisiana 202-224-5824
225-389-0395

Sen. McCaskill of Missouri 202-224-6154
314-367-1364

Sen. Baucus of Montana 202-224-2651
406-657-6790

Sen. Tester of Montana 202-224-2644
406-449-5401

Sen. Conrad of North Dakota 202-224-2043
701-258-4648

Sen. Dorgan of North Dakota 202-224-2551
701-239-5389

DEMOCRATS ON THE FENCE WHO ARE GOOD PROSPECTS

Senators Stabenow and Ben Nelson voted for the amnesty in 2007. But we feel they could be persuaded to vote otherwise now that we are in a Jobs Depression.

And Sen. Hagan is a new Senator who has been indicating opposition to the amnesty but still doesn't seem guaranteed.

Sen. Stabenow of Michigan 202-224-4822
313-961-4330

Sen. Nelson of Nebraska 202-224-6551
402-441-4600 or 402-391-3411

Sen. Hagan of North Carolina 202-224-6342
336-333-5311 or 919-856-4630

REPUBLICANS ON THE FENCE

Here are Republicans who still won't promise to vote against a massive new illegal-alien amnesty.

Frankly, friends, we need not only to defeat this amnesty but to crush it in order to scare off Senate leaders from bringing this or another amnesty up for a vote during the lame duck session after the elections.

Most of these Republicans (not all) tend to put the desire of greedy businesses for cheap foreign labor over the needs of their unemployed constituents. They can use your educational assistance.

Sen. Murkowski of Alaska 202-224-6665
907-271-3735

Sen. LeMeiux of Florida 202-224-3041

614-469-6697

Sen. Hutchison of Texas 202-224-5922
214-361-3500

DEMOCRATS WHO MAY BE SUSCEPTIBLE TO PRESSURE FROM THEIR CONSTITUENTS

These tend to lean in favor of foreign workers over unemployed Americans.

But they have NOT co-sponsored the DREAM Act amnesty even though Party Leaders have almost made support of this amnesty a litmus test for being a real Democrat. So, something is holding them back. Provide them some more reasons.

Sen. Begich of Alaska 202-224-3004

SENATORS WHO ARE CO-SPONSORING THE 'DREAM' AMNESTY

Just because the following Senators are outspoken in their support for favoring illegal foreign workers over unemployed U.S. citizens and legal immigrants already here, they should not be allowed to feel that such a position is safe.
