U.S Senator Harry Reid attached the Dream Act onto a defense bill, that, if passed, will give automatic citizenship and a free ride to 2.1 million illegal aliens. The long term costs run into the billions. I ask you to take time today and tomorrow to call the senators below. Tell them you do not support any kind of a Dream Act because it rewards illegal aliens with your tax dollars.
SENATE SWITCHBOARD — 202-224-3121: Fellow Americans, we don’t yet have the 41 sure NO votes that we must have to stop the DREAM Act amnesty in the Senate this week.
And don’t put off your calls. They are desperately needed today. Go to http://www.NumbersUSA.com for more clarification if you need it. Pro-amnesty forces claim that their super-expensive, special toll-free telephone system processed 5,000 pro-amnesty phone calls to Senators yesterday. They brag that they expect to be handling 10,000 pro-amnesty calls a day until the DREAM Act amnesty passes! We have to match them. Please look at the target lists below and start phoning some Senators.
The pro-amnesty forces are throwing everything they have into beating us. And I’m talking tens of millions of dollars that are backing the nation’s top union, religious, ethnic and academic leaders who are storming the offices of Congress with their last-minute, desperation push for this amnesty for an estimated 2.1 million illegal aliens.
“You already talked several senators into opposing the Dream Amnesty,” said Roy Beck, director of NumbersUSA.com. “You are making in-roads with your faxes and your phone calls since Tuesday.”
ACTION: If you live in those states, call their offices and take just a moment to thank them for their pledge to oppose the DREAM Act.
TOP FENCE-SITTING PROSPECTS WHO NEED YOUR PHONE CALL BEFORE THEY WILL PLEDGE AMNESTY OPPOSITION
“As far as we know, none of the following Senators has committed either to oppose or support the DREAM Act amnesty as part of the Defense authorization bill next week,” said Beck. “For a number of mixed reasons, we believe these Senators are the ones of the uncommitted who are most likely to listen to reasonable persuasion from constituents asking for a NO vote. Action: Call the DC office of these Senators (the 202 number). Of calling the local offices (the number on the second line) will be most helpful, as well.”
If you’ve never called a Senate office, it isn’t hard. Just state your name to the staffer and quickly say you are calling to ask the Senator to OPPOSE the DREAM Act amnesty. Then give one reason for your opposition, say thank you and good-bye.

TOUGHER UNCOMMITTED TARGETS — CAN YOU PERSUADE THEM?
Your first and most important phone calls are to the Senators above.
ACTION: The following list is of Senators who have shown a real proclivity toward amnesty but seem to have remained uncommitted. Under the pressure of the impending November elections, some of these Senators could be persuaded to vote NO.
I would emphasize with them that a controversial bill like this has no business being put inside a Defense bill, regardless of how they may feel about the amnesty itself.
