Default Amendment text?

I googled for Amendment 646, nothing relevant is coming up. Is there Bill or Amendment text available somewhere? Not that I am skeptic about the message, I just want to read the contents..

The closest I got is this:
https://www.congress.gov/amendment/1...-amendment/646

The goal isn't to kill the amendment.

The goal is to get our provisions in the amendment (Per-country cap removal, dependent exclusion etc) - not kill it.

The strategy is to call until we get what we want - and then stop calling.

So, please play along and call.

Someone on IV's facebook page posted the following:
Quote:
In preparation for today's calls I created a spreadsheet with the senators name, party, state and phone numbers.

I suggest printing it out before you start calling and strike names off the list as you get done.

The only way we are going to beat this is if we call, call and call.

Question Question for Admin

Thanks for guiding us through this. Hopefully all the concerned stakeholders i.e. all of us will be doing/done our part and calling/called the senators and voice/d our disagreement. However, I am bit scared-

Understanding that politics is a dirty game that is played under the table, how badly is this going to affect the President's EO that we are waiting for to happen? :confused
