U.S. SENATE PASSES AMNESTY FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS BILL

The Senate has just passed it's Hagel-Martinez Amnesty bill -- what we call the "No Illegal Alien Left Behind Act" -- by a final vote of 62-36.

Those who have been following this debate know that this outrageous bill has gotten worse by the hour. Right down to the final minutes before the vote, Senators were adding language that further undermines our nation. For example, the bill calls for "consultation" with Mexican authorities before the agreed-upon fence is built!

And to think this is the same body that -- long ago! -- voted not to join the League of Nations (the first attempt to undermine U.S. sovereignty)!

The battle to secure our borders and save our nation from an amnesty flood is not yet over. After the Senate's Memorial Day recess, the bill will go to House-Senate Conference Committee. Already developing is a strategy to embolden the House to oppose the Senate amnesty measure. We can defeat this, but it will take a rising tide
of grassroots citizen outrage in the coming weeks.

It is worth nothing that the over the past two weeks the Senate was flooded with hundreds of thousands of letters, faxes, phone calls and petitions. Clearly We The People have spoken to our Government: We The People do not want this bill to become the law of the land!

We can win this fight for the very soul of our nation -- to secure our borders and stop the amnesty flood that the Senate has pushed today. If you or your friends want to help, here is a petition (if you have not already signed it):
