Just stick the plan and keep making phone calls.
you mean if Our amendment passes and whole bill fails. it is going to be helpful for us?

You know better than that. It is public knowledge that Sen. Cornyn is expected to vote against the bill. There are 99 other Senators, out of which 65-70 are expected to vote for the bill. I am unable to see a point you are trying to make. Are you saying that because Senator Cornyn will vote against the bill that it will not pass the Senate?

I think he means that we are not counting on his vote for the entire bill and the bill can pass even without his vote. However, sen is not decided on the amendment vote and our repeated calls may be able to sway him our way - for the amendment.

You probably doesn't know what this means, nothing wrong with that. Allow me to explain. "Boehner not going to hold a vote on the Senate immigration bill" means that Speaker of the House will not bring the exact Senate version of the immigration bill in the Senate. But it also doesn't mean that he cannot bring House version of the immigration bill. Look for H.R.2131 - One of the House version of immigration reform.

If you follow the legislative process, you will see that large bills are almost always different in Senate and House. After the bills passes the two chambers of Congress, the two different bills go for reconciliation process so they can agree on the final version of the bill. That is a standard process.

This would be ridiculous if they dont allow other amendments to be presented for vote... it's all about damn illegals....BUT WE SHOULD STILL KEEP TRYING.

Senate takes another step toward passing immigration reform - CNN.com

"The 69-29 vote set up a procedural motion immediately afterward to limit debate on the roughly 1,200-page bill, which would provide an eventual path to citizenship for millions of immigrants living illegally in the country.

While some further amendments still could be considered, the measure appeared headed to a final Senate vote by the end of the week after the procedural motion passed in a 67-31 vote."

We will stick to the current plan of gathering support for Warren Amendment. Sen. Cruz is not supporting the bill, which is why most likely his amendment will be defeated, it doesn't matter what he is offering. That is how the system works.

Grassley objects to consideration of managers package and votes on series of bipartisan list of amendments to Immigration bill | Senate Democrats

It has all fixes we wished like

1. More EB visas
2. No STEM 5 year degree limit
3. No Country Limit etc..


And I think many more in our wish list... Some body can volunteer to find them and it is mainly for leagal and immigration visas.

I do not know when will be warren ammendment will be on senate floor.but Cruz ammendment will be there on senate floor.

Can we please call senator offices to vote in support of it?

This amendment was defeated in Judiciary committee. This amendment has zero chance of passing.

Hi Administrator,
