Senate committee adds amnesty for 1.2 million illegal ag workers to Iraq spendingSubmitted by lastmovement on Fri, 05/16/2008 - 04:03
On a 17-12 vote this afternoon, the Senate Appropriations Committee added Sen. Feinstein's ag amnesty to the Iraq supplemental spending bill.
This bill could come up for a vote before the full Senate tomorrow.
Every phone of every Senator should be ringing off the hook as soon as I click SEND on this alert.
Please pick up your phone the minute you read this and call:
Call the offices of both of your state's U.S. Senators and tell them:
The Senate Appropriations Committee on Thursday afternoon committed an outrageous act of disrespect for our men and women in uniform and to the citizens of this country by attaching an illegal-alien amnesty to the Iraq spending bill.
Urge the Senator to vote and work to strip the amnesty from the Iraq spending bill on the floor.
You - or the Senator - may already oppose this spending bill. But if the Senator is inclined to vote YES on the Iraq bill, ask the Senator to definitely vote NO and send it back to committee if the amnesty is NOT stripped.
