ALG - Shaheen and Democrats Filibuster Stops DHS Funding Bill From Vote

Dear Liberty Activist,

 

Click here to urge the Senate to bring the DHS funding bill to the floor!

 

Senate Republicans have three times this week attempted to bring legislation to the floor. But Harry Reid won't let that happen.

 

Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging Senate Democrats to cease their filibuster of Department of Homeland Security funding:

 

"For the third time, Senate Democrats are jeopardizing homeland security to protect President Obama's unconstitutional action granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. With all the threats facing the homeland, now is not the time to allow politics to interfere with our nation's security. Let the bill come to the floor as is.

 

"If Senate Democrats wish to offer an amendment to the Department of Homeland Security funding, they can do that, but they need to allow the bill to be acted upon. If they can muster the votes to change it, it will be changed. As it stands, funding expires at the end of the month, and the world is not getting any safer.

 

"In the meantime, we urge the Senate majority to continue holding cloture votes on this important piece of legislation so that the process can move forward, and members have an opportunity to make their voices heard. The House has done its job. Now it's time for the Senate to get to work."

 

You can see the votes here, and how your senators have voted:

 

Feb 05

53 (52-47)

Rejected

On Cloture on the Motion to Proceed

H.R. 240

Feb 04

52 (53-47)

Rejected

On Cloture on the Motion to Proceed

H.R. 240

Feb 03

51 (51-48)

Rejected

On Cloture on the Motion to Proceed

H.R. 240

         

 

You know what to do! Republican leaders promised the American people they would attach a prohibition on Obama's unconstitutional action granting amnesty to millions of Americans to the bill, and they have.

 

Now they need your support.

 

Let's get on Rally Congress and urge the Senate to allow the Department of Homeland Security funding bill to the floor of the Senate.

 

And keep fighting!

 

For Liberty,
