Reid And Pro Amnesty Senators Postpone DREAM Act Vote After Not Having Votes To Pass It

Bookmark and Share

Harry Reid
In a last minute move Senator Harry Reid realized that the Dream Act amnesty did not have enough votes to pass. Thanks to all you Americans out there who called and pressured your senators, but don't celebrate yet. Reid filed a motion to table the Dream Act in hopes of taking a vote on it next week. They received the 50 votes needed to postpone the vote, but this fight is not over.

Reid hopes to bribe enough senators into voting for it by next week. The senate would have needed 60 votes in order to pass the Dream Act and not a simple majority of 51 (in order to avoid a filibuster, which surely would have occurred).

Michelle Malkin put it thusly:

Which means another week of open-borders agitation, radical ethnic triablism, and new Democrat euphemisms for illegal aliens.

This would be the largest amnesty passed since 1986.

I know that everyone is tired, but now is not the time to give up the fight. As most of you know, I do not over-hype things as some do. Over the past month you have received outrageous emails claiming that you need to act NOW! NOW! NOW! to defeat the amnesty. Some from groups just looking for money, like ALIPAC who hope to capitalize on the nation destroying act monetarily.

I refuse to hype things like this because people's time is precious and they get burned out. That is why yesterday I posted to call your senators. The vote was imminent and it was the right time to do so. However, as always, Reid and the pro-amnesty groups are playing their little games and hoping to wear you down.

I would not put it past Reid to call some sneak late night or weekend vote on the amnesty if he feels he has the votes, but as of right now it looks like it won't be until next week. I ask that rather than wait, give your senator a call and let them know that whether the vote is today, this weekend or next week that you oppose the act and expect them to stand up for Americans and vote against the Dream Act.
