Cloture vote for Senate Amnesty Bill passes 64-35 today (June 26). 19 Senators who voted no last time (June 7th) changed their vote. Defeating the cloture vote was the best chance to kill the bill in the Senate. A yes vote for cloture is a yes vote for amnesty!

Don’t give up, keep calling your Senator. The final vote is scheduled for this Friday. Blitz your Senators with as many phone calls as possible.

Also, we can still kill this bill in US House of Representatives. The version of the Senate Amnesty Bill passed in 2006 was killed by the House.
