Editor’s Note – And the push is on! Amnesty supporters are making an 11th hour attempt to push a watered down version of immigration reform through Congress by attaching it to the defense authorization bill.
The Progressive Left understands that this may be their last chance to realize some form of amnesty for the foreseeable future.
As for Harry Reid, his only motivation here is to pander to the Hispanic vote in his re-election bid, which is not looking good. He is currently in a statistical tie with his Republican opponent.
Roll Call reports that immigration reform advocates have been honing in on Sen. George LeMieux as a potential ally in their campaign to pass the DREAM Act. Call FL Senator LeMieux’s office @ 202-224-3041 and tell him to oppose the DREAM ACT! It is amnesty lite…
Florida Organizations To Hold Vigil To Urge LeMieux To Support DREAM Act

Local and national organizations have expressed support for the decision by Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., to attach the DREAM Act to the defense authorization bill as part of a larger campaign for immigration reform.
Later today, immigration activists from Students Working for Equal rights and the Florida Immigrant Advocacy Center Coalition will gather at the Miami office of Sen. George LeMieux, R-Fla., to organize a vigil in support of the DREAM Act.
Maria Rodriguez, executive director of the Florida Immigrant Coalition, wrote to The Florida Independent, “We support the DREAM ACT and urge Senator Le Mieux and Nelson to vote in favor of it.”
