Vote ‘no’ on this latest amnesty

I urge you to vote NO on the motion to bring to proceed with S.744, the Gang of Eight’s immigration bill. This legislation is so bad and so unfair to the American people that it simply does not deserve debate; it deserves to be put down. The Senate needs to go back to the drawing board and create legislation that serves the interests of the American people.

Stop S. 744

The U.S. Senate will hold a motion to proceed with S. 744, the Gang of Eight’s immigration bill — I urge you to strongly oppose it.

Immigration reform is necessary and must occur, but this bill is not the answer. Please oppose this bill on Tuesday and start with again with an open process.

Please oppose this legislation.
