Lame Duck Amnesty Vote Stalled Until After Thanksgiving

NumbersUSA: PELOSI HAS POSTPONED AMNESTY VOTE AT LEAST UNTIL AFTER THANKSGIVING

Earlier this week U.S. House Speaker Pelosi announced she hoped to bring up the DREAM Act amnesty to a vote in the first week of the Lame Duck session (next week).

Today, House Democratic leaders announced that they aren't going to deal with the amnesty next week. They will be out of town for Thanksgiving the week after that. So, we are now fighting to prohibit the vote the first week of December when Congress returns.

Every day (and especially week) that we delay the vote, the less likely the amnesty will get a hearing. There are at most three weeks left in which it can be raised after Thanksgiving. It still is a real danger. But Congress also has some major business it absolutely has to handle before Christmas.


On Election Day, there was a dramatic shift in the Immigration Balance of Power. Speaker Pelosi and the pro-amnesty groups know the lame-duck session may be their last chance to pass the DREAM Act. The bill aims to provide an amnesty for illegal aliens who are college bound or serve in the military, but it goesmuch further. Millions more illegal aliens would receive the amnesty, and the bill contains no provisions to increase enforcement or secure the border.

It's been a long election season, and we know the winter holidays are right around the corner. The DREAM Act supporters are counting on the fact that amnesty opponents will be distracted during the lame-duck session.

Prove them wrong and take 5 minutes to let your Members of Congress know how you feel!
Your job is to continue to make the amnesty seem so controversial that your 3 Members of Congress will be telling their leaders that they don't want the amnesty brought up as a vote.

As we have beaten every amnesty in every year starting in 2001, we have learned that it is always easier when the process gets dragged out. The announcement of delay today is a very good sign.

THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE SO FAR IN THE CURRENT AMNESTY CRISIS. THE AMNESTY LEADERS KNOW THAT THIS LAME DUCK SESSION IS THE ONLY POSSIBLE CHANCE THEY HAVE FOR AT LEAST TWO MORE YEARS. THE AMERICAN VOTERS LAST WEEK CHOSE A NEW CONGRESS THAT IS STRONGLY ANTI-AMNESTY.
