Anti-Illegal Immigration Rally



The Michigan Federation for Immigration Reform & Enforcement is organizing an:

Anti - Illegal Immigration Rally

Tuesday June 26, 2007 at 12 noon

Senator Debbie Stabenow’s
Lansing Office

221 W Lake Lansing Road
East Lansing, MI 48823

Debbie Stabenow has lost touch with her electorate. We the citizens of Michigan will not stand for further obstruction of our laws and will not accept any Senate immigration bill (McCain/Kennedy Amnesty bill).

Opponents of illegal immigration have been working tirelessly to defeat the McCain/Kennedy bill. Allied Senators have worked hard to add amendments that would weaken the bill and create fractures in the coalition that is working to pass it.

To prevent these amendments, the Senate leadership has tried various tactics. Among these was the cloture plan. On June 7 at 11:41AM, Senate Majority Leader Reid called for a cloture vote – with full knowledge that he would later call a second cloture vote at 8:24PM. Reid and his allies voted against cloture in the first vote ( Roll Call Vote 203) and for cloture in the second vote (Roll Call Vote 206). By doing this, he – and other senators (like Stabenow) - could claim that they voted against cloture.

Stabenow also voted (Roll Call Vote 180) to defeat Vitter amendment 1157. This would have removed the Z Visa which is Amnesty.
