    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) launched a national petition on Thursday to stop the Senate Gang of Eight's amnesty bill and send Washington a "strong signal" of the grassroots opposition to the bill.

    "This is urgent," Cruz wrote in an e-mail to supporters. "We must stop this Gang of 8 immigration bill, which would give amnesty to an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants with no guarantee of a secure border."

    "The Senate debate is in the final stages and we need to send Washington a strong signal of the overwhelming grassroots opposition to this amnesty bill from Americans across the country," Cruz explained.

    Cruz urged supporters to share the petition with friends and to "act now--without delay--to help us defeat amnesty and stand for legal immigration!"

    Nice idea but I'm afraid it's too little, too late. I don't see this being stopped in the senate....the house will pass their version...and the resulting compromise bill the Empty Suit signs will have all of the bad and none of the good.

    Its not too late, but its too bad so many of us have given up, before the Bill has even been voted on.

    But the clock no doubt, is ticking.

    There is a legitimate reason for that: the Constitution no longer matters to the liberal Ivy League elitists who have successfully taken over the federal government and intend to impose a monarchy of sorts on the formerly free Americans.

    The USA is toast, and has been for quite some time, and it's probably better to spend your time preparing for the meltdown than watching the trainwreck.

    Precisely what do you intend to do? Write letters to your congress critters? That's a complete waste of time. Call your congress critters? Another waste of time. Vote? Don't make me laugh. Voting has turned into the biggest waste of time because it doesn't matter who you vote for, the outcome is going to be the same: more government and more government control. They're going to pass this immigration bill and the billions that it will cost the American taxpayer will be piled up on the billions that 0blowmeCare is going to add. (think Cloward-Piven)

    A nice woman once said, "America is at that awkward stage; it's too late to work within the system and too early to start shooting the bastards."

    So, what is your plan of action to bring about change? Convince me that it's viable.

    None of it will pass, the Republicans will get blamed and Obama will put most of it into effect anyway through royal decree.
    How is obama working out for you?

    Corker Amendment Permanently Offers Citizenship to Those Overstaying Their Visas

    Just as public anxiety about the weak border security provisions in the Senate immigration bill was building, GOP Sen. Bob Corker stepped forward with an amendment to "fix" the problem. The result of his efforts, however, has been a "Christmas tree" measure, covering items far beyond border security. Breitbart News has learned exclusively that one provision of Corker's amendment will allow workers who stay in the country past their visa will remain on the "path to citizenship."

    >>> it has become a 1,000+ page amendment to supplant the current proposal and provide multiple new provisions. >>>

    What does that mean? >>>

    The Corker Amendment wipes away any immigration enforcement. It is designed to maximize the number of individuals who qualify for citizenship.

    The Corker Amendment is an obvious attempt by the DC GOP establishment to find a path to vote for the Senate bill. It throws a lot more money at the border, but it also weakens internal enforcement and controls. The Corker Amendment actually stipulates that, in perpetuity, you can break the law, overstay your visa, and still be eligible for citizenship.

    Dont just 'roll over' like a GOP rino. The time is now to be a modern day Paul Revere ... tell your friends ... spread this like wildfire! Raise bloody hell over this.
