WE WIN!

YES!

The Amnesty Bill is dead as a doornail!

The American people spoke. We told Congress and the President in no uncertain terms NO AMNESTY, and they were forced to listen. A crucial victory for Freedom and the rule of law was won today, many congratulations all around.

However, this is NOT the time to let up! Continue to contact your Senators and Representatives. We need to make two points crystal clear.

First, if they voted against the Amnesty Bill, thank them. Let them know that the American people are watching and we appreciate them doing the right thing. Of course, if they voted for the Amnesty Bill, let them know in no uncertain terms that they will pay a price for it the next time they are up for election. (I will post a link to the vote count when it becomes available)

Second, make sure to impress upon them that merely defeating this bill was not enough. Now they must step up to the bar and push new bills that fully fund enforcement efforts, force an immediate start on not just a border fence, but a concrete and steel border wall. Also urge them to pass a binding resolution to force the President to redeploy troops from peaceful (not Iraq!) areas of the world such as Germany and Japan, and place them in a fully armed and ready posture on the border charged with defending the border with all necessary force.

Our borders MUST be made inviolate. Stomping the craptacular Amnesty Bill into the dust is a good start, but it's by far not the end of the story. Keep up the pressure!

Defend our Homeland and God Bless America!

UPDATE: Here's the vote!
