Guest Worker Amnesty Legislation To Land On the Senate Floor Within Two Weeks! Call Your Senators and Urge Them to Say NO!

Sources all over Capitol Hill are buzzing with information that guest worker amnesty legislation will be on Senate floor the week of May 14, 2007! The exact details of the bill -- negotiated entirely behind closed doors -- are known only to a few select staff members, but Senate staff has told FAIR that it will likely be a version of the White House plan or the Flake-Gutierrez bill. Congress Daily is similarly reporting that the Senate immigration bill will probably include a "Z visa" that will allow illegal aliens to stay and work in the United States-a provision taken directly from the White House proposal.

Not only are all of these negotiations going on behind closed doors, but the resulting product of those negotiations won't even be introduced as formal legislation. Congress Daily is now reporting that to get this massive guest worker amnesty plan passed, Senate leaders are planning to go to the Senate floor, amend the language onto an existing bill and then vote on it. By not introducing a formal bill and taking the debate straight to the floor, it is clear that Senate leaders are attempting to bypass the Committee review process and fast-track amnesty legislation through Congress with as little debate as possible. We need your help to stop it!!

It is IMPERATIVE that you call your Senators' offices today and urge them to oppose ANY guest worker amnesty legislation!

The debate is quickly coming to a head, and without pressure from hard working Americans, illegal alien amnesty may be passed by Congress within weeks.
