What You Can Still Do About the Senate Enforcement Amendments
via Jacki Esposito:
CALLS TO SENATE OFFICES STILL NEEDED!
This morning, the Senate will resume consideration of HR 48899, Emergency Supplemental appropriations. There will then be up to 20 minutes for debate in relation to the enforcement and detention amendments. The Senate will then process to a series of votes in this order:
- McCain Amendment #4214
- Kyl Amendment #4228
- Cornyn Amendment #4202
Early estimates demonstrate that we were able to generate at least 25,000 phone calls and faxes to Senate offices. Hill staff indicate that they were inundated with calls and information yesterday.
THERE IS STILL TIME TO URGE THE SENATE NOT TO INCREASE DETENTION OR BORDER ENFORCEMENT
BUT RESTORE FAIRNESS AND JUSTICE TO THE IMMIGRATION DETENTION & DEPORTATION SYSTEM
