Amnesty gets a smackdown

More from Sen. Jim DeMint…

June 28th, 2007 – Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina) made the following statement after the Senate immigration bill was defeated on a cloture vote of 46-53. This motion to end debate required 60 votes for adoption.

“When the U.S. Senate brought the Amnesty bill back up this week, they declared war on the American people. This act created a crisis of confidence in their government. Thankfully, the American people won today,” said Senator DeMint. “This is remarkable because it shows that Americans are engaged and they care deeply about their country. They care enough for their country to get mad and to fight for it, and that’s the most important thing of all. Americans made phone calls and sent letters, and convinced the Senate to stop this bill.”

“The Senate rejected this bill and the heavy-handed tactics used to ram it through. Americans do not want more of the same – amnesty and broken promises on the border. Americans want legislation to be written in public – not in secret – and they want Congress to engage in an open and fair debate.”

“There is a better way forward without this bill. The President has said that the border security measures can be implemented over the next 18 months, and they can be done under current law. Now the Administration needs to prove it and stop holding border security hostage for amnesty.”

“Once we have secured the border and restored trust with the American people, we can begin to take additional steps.”

    Now that we’ve defeated the Shamnesty Bill we must fax and email them while the issue is HOT!

    Tell them we must secure our borders and enforce our laws right now, TODAY!

    OR shall we wait another 21 years and 20+ Million more illegal aliens for another wrongheaded legislation to be shoved down our throats from a closed door “compromise”?

    We are paying out over $340 BILLION per year right now for the illegal aliens we have, what will we be paying a year from now, ten years from now? Why on earth should we indirectly pay for all the support of low wage, unskilled and illegal workers for big business’s bottom line and a new voting base for Liberals? I say no way!!
