Yesterday, the Senate voted for cloture on a motion to bring S. 1348 to the floor for debate without going through a committee process. Approving the motion by a 69-23 margin. The Senate will debate an Amend the bill this week and next. There will then be another cloture vote to end debate and vote on the bill. If 10 “Yea” votes are changed by the next cloture vote this bill will effectively be dead for this session of congress. If not prepare to welcome 20 million new illegals -er- legals to the country.

Here are the Senators that stood with the vast majority of the American people on the cloture vote:

18 Republicans 4 Democrats & 1 Independant. More proof that this is not a party line issue. If anything it seems to be the politicians verses the people. One other interesting bit on the voting was some proof someone up there is looking at the polling data. Check out the number of Presidential hopefuls that neglected to vote:
