Frist's Move For Cloture On Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act (S. 2611) Passes

Bookmark and Share

Senator Bill Frist moved for cloture today on S. 2611, the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act. Cloture passed by a vote of 73-25. This effectively shuts up all the Senators who want amendments that make the bill more clear, more detailed on enforcement and the costs of this huge behemoth of a plan or that oppose it's amnesty components.

And here's a list of the Senators who supported amnesty and unruly spending by voting for cloture on this bill. Remember their names.

Especially remember Hillary Clinton who has been trying to seem all tough on immigration recently demanding a border fence etc... don't believe the hype folks! The reality is in their actions, which voting for cloture on this bill is clearly a sign that you support a guest worker amnesty.

Republicans are in bold:

Akaka (D-HI)
Alexander (R-TN)
Baucus (D-MT)
Bayh (D-IN)
Bennett (R-UT)
Biden (D-DE)
Bingaman (D-NM)

Stabenow (D-MI)
Stevens (R-AK)
Thomas (R-WY)

I'd suggest you call these Senators and tell them what you think of their cloture vote and that if they vote to approve this bill today that they've lost your support.
