    NumbersUSA:Amnesty votes are finally set to happen--Wed.

    Good summing up of what we still have to do. Time to put it to rest and move on to economics, jobs... Send your free faxes. But as Roy said below -our calls are worth many faxes.

    From: Roy Beck, President, NumbersUSA
    Date: Monday 6DEC2010 10:30 p.m. EST


    Action No. 1: Send the anti-amnesty faxes that are posted on your NumbersUSA customized Action Board. They are free and can be sent over the internet with the click of your mouse.

    Of course, things can change, but these votes have really been scheduled, finally.

    The moment of truth is here. And the truth is that the only thing stopping the triumph of amnesty on Wednesday will be the vigorous direct opposition from citizens like you. Pres. Obama has thrown the full power of the White House behind passing the DREAM Act amnesty by deploying virtually every Cabinet secretary to lobby, as well as activating his massive, national grassroots organization with its nearly unlimited spending power.

    Hundreds of thousands of citizens like YOU created enough of a firestorm to win anti-amnesty votes several times in 2007 -- and to keep the votes from occuring since then.

    It only works if every one of you does something -- now.

    If enough of you respond fully and immediately, this could be the last time we have to fight an amnesty for years -- or we could lose at the last minute, and 10 years of beating back the amnesties would be lost in an instant.

    Action No. 2: Watch for my Phone Alert Tuesday morning. It will be tailored for your state.

    As important as the faxing is, each phone call tomorrow will be worth 50 faxes.

    The wealthy open-borders forces have set up phone banks all over the country -- just like political Parties do on Election Day. They will be driving massive numbers of phone calls into Congress throughout Tuesday.

    Only you can create a different story in the offices of the swing-voting Members of Congress. Will they hear YES TO AMNESTY all day, or will they be reminded constantly that a NO ON AMNESTY MEANS A YES FOR UNEMPLOYED AMERICANS?

    Sideline Action: In case you are interested, I will be doing an hour-long debate about the amnesty on 190 NPR radio stations nationally at 10-11 a.m. (Eastern) on Tuesday morning.

    # 10-11 a.m. ET -- See a list of NPR stations that carry On Point with Tom Ashbrook.

    # 10-11 a.m. ET -- Listen online:

    # 4-6 p.m. ET -- SIRIUS Satellite Radio, NPR TALK Channel

    # 4-6 p.m. ET -- SIRIUS Satellite Radio, Everything Plus The Best of XM Channel.

    # 4-6 p.m. ET -- XM Satellite Radio, XM Public Radio Channel.


    In the House, leaders want to vote first because it is assumed the best chance of passing an amnesty is in the House. This could happen late Wednesday morning or in the afternoon. They want to build momentum for the Senate to take up the amnesty perhaps Wednesday evening.

    If the amnesty fails in just one of the chambers, WE win.

    Generally, Speaker Pelosi would not schedule a vote on a bill that she doesn't believe she can get the 218 votes to pass it.

    Does that mean she has assurance of 218 YES votes? I don't think so. But she must be close. And she figures that if she holds the vote Wednesday she can force enough on-the-fence Democrats to take her side. Your job is to pull those Democrats over to the NO side.

    Our road to victory depends on holding all but about 6 of the Republicans as NO votes and to get about 45 Democrats to vote NO.

    About 75 Democrats are still in play. I'll be coming to you about them Tuesday morning.

    In the Senate, we have better prospects of winning. In the House, they only need 50% plus one vote to pass the amnesty. But in the Senate they have to get 60% of the 100 votes.

    Incredible pressures are being exerted on Republican Senators who have supported the DREAM amnesty in the past to do so again. Thus far, only Senators Lugar of Indiana and Bennett of Utah has committed to a YES. But at least 10 other Republicans need a lot of your support to vote NO, even though we feel relatively good about most of them. If they are your Senators, you will get an alert Tuesday morning.

    We also are continuing to exert as much pressure as possible on about a dozen Democratic Senators who are up for re-election in 2012 and have shown a distaste for amnesty at some time in the past.

    But the question is, "will that hold after the Grand Compromise?" That's what I'm waiting to see. Presumably, he'll insist that the tax vote come up BEFORE any cloture vote on DREAM.

    Man, the Numbers USA site is s-l-o-w!

    I'm getting my calls done and my personal faxes, but I can hardly get a fax through from Numbers USA. There must be a TON of folks trying to get through from that site!

    Just in case you haven't done this...Yes Numbers is very slow...

    From Roy Beck at

    Urge Congressional Leaders to Abandon DREAM Act Amnesty Vote This Week

    Below is a FREE FAX you can send directly to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, by merely pressing the button below.

    Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid plan to being holding votes on the DREAM Act Amnesty this week in Congress! Even though many pro-amnesty candidates were roundly defeated on November 2nd, the leadership in both the House and the Senate are determined to ignore the will of the American people and try to shove a mass amnesty down our throats while they still can.

    Pelosi and Reid realize that the lame duck session of Congress is their last realistic hope of passing an illegal alien amnesty in the next two years. The next Congress, which convenes in January, will be much more enforcement-oriented. But we've got to stop Reid and Pelosi now.

    Please don't delay. Send this critical message to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid today, urging them to rethink their amnesty agenda. Other NumbersUSA members have already paid for this fax, so there is no cost to you.
    Dear Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid,

    It is very disappointing that the Senate and House Leadership is planning on having a lame duck vote on the DREAM Act Amnesty. I expect you abandon your foolish plans to force this amnesty on the American people.

    22 million cannot find a job, but you feel you need to force this amnesty down the throats of the American people anyway. How low can you go?

    On November 2nd, the American people made it clear to all Members of Congress that we do not want any amnesty for illegal aliens, especially while 22 million Americans cannot find a job and while our borders are unsecured.

    I urge you to do the right thing and stand up for law and order, abide by the wishes of the American people, and stand up for the 22 million Americans who cannot find a job. Please drop your plans to force the DREAM Act Amnesty through the lame duck session of Congress.
