A couple of weeks ago, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Ted Kennedy, John McCain, Jon Kyl and several others drafted a bill that would give Amnesty to 12-20 million illegal aliens!
They drafted this horrendous bill behind closed doors... under the cover of darkness... and tried to shove it through the Senate before the American people -- and even their Senate colleagues -- had the chance to read and analyze it!
They emerged from that closed-door meeting laughing and slapping each other on the back... you probably still remember seeing that photo in all the newspapers!
"Trust us," they said, "this is a good bill."
Of course, it wasn't!
Recognizing the manipulative Amnesty scheme of Washington politicians, NewsMax.com readers took decisive action and thwarted their plans. You and millions of concerned Americans beat Amnesty for illegals once again.
BUT GUESS WHAT?
Reid and company announced a few days ago that they are going to try to shove Amnesty down the throats of the American people again -- AS EARLY AS THIS WEEK!
And, sources on Capitol Hill are suggesting that pro-Amnesty forces are digging deeper into their bag of parliamentary tricks in an effort to suppress your criticism and honest debate!
According to a report published by Kathryn Jean Lopez on National Review's website:
"We expect Reid, in conjunction with support from McConnell, Lott and Grand Bargainers Kyl, Martinez, Graham and McCain, to introduce a brand new piece of legislation - and use Rule 14 to put the bill immediately on the Senate calendar without going thru committee - which of course, the first bill did not do as well."
You read that right... no debate... no committee hearings...
The report goes further:
"The guessing begins at this point - but we expect Reid - with the help and support of certain Republican leadership and the Grand Bargainers - to do something that we believe has never been done in the history of the Senate... he will use an arcane Senate procedure that allows a single amendment to be divisible into many..."
"Traditionally, that amendment has been used to protect minority rights - but in this case, it will be used to PREVENT the minority from getting additional amendments called up and from being able to fully debate the amendments in question. It is, to our knowledge, unprecedented."
What is going on, you ask?
It's really very simple:
Pro-Amnesty politicians in Washington, D.C. believe that if they can
move quickly... if they can push a vote on this Amnesty bill before you
have the opportunity to apply the pressure... they can strong-arm their
colleagues into voting for it.
