I hope you guys don't mind my copying what I was sent this am to make you all aware the Senator from Nevada is once again trying to get the amnesty bill passed. Here is text. If anyone wants to call the phone number is
Senate Switchboard
202-224-3121



AMNESTY UPDATE

Our early morning contacts with Senate staffers confirm what we told you at midnight:

Senate Majority Leader Reid (D-Nev.) is currently expected to bring the DREAM Act amnesty to a vote Wednesday morning.

Thanks to you, news of Sen. Reid's late-night attempt to catch America off-guard with his latest amnesty maneuver is spreading across America.

You already have ordered 58,000 faxes into the Senate warning of this attempt.

And Talk Radio shows across the country are being alerted. If you have any contact with any Talk Radio or any newspaper, radio or TV journalist, please call them right now. At this moment, the NumbersUSA activist network is the only one spreading the news of Reid's perfidy. That is a lot of responsibility that you carry.

Get this posted and picked up on every blog you know.

Most importantly, pick up a phone right now and make the call to your Senators requested in the midnight Alert (I've re-copied that Alert below).

Although the vote may happen tomorrow morning, the language of this particular DREAM Act amnesty is just now becoming known! No hearings, no committe discussion and, for the most part, not even any text!!!!

At first blush, we are estimating that this bill would grant amnesty to around 1.4 million illegal aliens between the age of 5 and 19, plus millions of illegal aliens who are between the age of 20 and 30. And that doesn't even count the millions more who likely would be able to obtain amnesty through fraud.

I signed up on NumbersUSA, so this was sent to my email. Someone else on this site posted the website originally, and whoever it was I must thank them. They keep everyone very well informed about this issue, even before most of the media even knows about it.

Here is website.

This is correct, go to U.S. congress site or Watch C-Span where you will see U.S. House speaking on this subject.

Guys, we need to call Congress again!

Here is the info on the horrendous "DREAM Act" which would Immediatelly give full amnesty to illegals under 21 and would give them 100% FREE COLLEGE TUITION, something not even American citizens or legal aliens have!!

What the hell!!! Here is the scoop:

Wednesday Cloture Vote Set For DREAM Act Amnesty Bill
(October 23) Last night, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) filed to invoke cloture on S. 2205, Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin’s (D-Ill.) new stand-alone DREAM Act amnesty bill. The cloture vote, for which 60 YES votes are necessary to prevent a filibuster on the measure, is set for Wednesday, October 24. Reid is attempting to bring this nightmarish amnesty bill to the floor under Senate Rule XIV without it ever having been debated in committee... Click here for more background on the DREAM Act.

It is imperative that NumbersUSA members call their senators today to ask them to vote NO on cloture for S. 2205.

Thank You for the above phone numbers to protest the dream act. They will want to give illegal parents amnesty 'if' the illegal kids get amnesty....so subtle the way they are trying to use children to sneak this all in, without American citizens having a vote.

Citizens must all all keep fighting tooth and nail, just as they are doing in NY, the DMV and city clerk's office are totally refusing to issue illegals drivers licenses there, fighting NY governor Spitzer who demands illegals get licenses...I wonder if a certain NY senator is involved.

It's a stealth attack, the strategy is to wear us down gradually.

Well looks like our calls and faxes did it again. From NumbersUSA home page. Of course my Senator here in California voted for it.

Cloture Vote On DREAM Act Amnesty Fails
(October 24) The Senate failed to obtain cloture on the DREAM Act amnesty (S. 2205) earlier this afternoon by a 52-44 vote, for which 60 YES votes were needed to prevent a filibuster. At this time, leadership from both parties are meeting to discuss further proceedings. Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) were attempting to bring this nightmarish amnesty bill to the floor under Senate Rule XIV without it ever having been debated in committee. Earlier this morning, the Bush Administration issued a statement opposing the DREAM Act ...
