You Heard It Here: Craig and Crapo Split Votes on Cloture for Illegal Alien Amnesty Bill

June 26th, 2007 by Halli

If you have been following Senator Larry Craig and his stand on illegal alien amnesty, you will not be surprised to learn that he voted in favor of cloture, thus reviving the illegal alien amnesty bill in the senate today. Once again, we should reach out and touch Sen. Craig and let him know what we think of his vote.

By the same token, we should let Sen. Mike Crapo know we appreciate his vote against cloture, and therefore the amnesty bill.

There is speculation that “there is something we’re not being told” about this bill, for so many senators to support it, even in the face of unstinting public opposition. Suppose we’ll ever know what that “something” is? Not likely. And that something is quite likely to be threats from special interest groups. It is NOT likely to be national security or the best interests of citizens and legal aliens. It just doesn’t work that way in Washington DC. Yes, the American public is getting the shaft from self-interested senators.

There are still hurdles that must be cleared before the bill becomes law, but we certainly should be quaking in our boots and taking a fresh stand at this point. It will soon be time to renew our efforts contacting members of the House.
