The Senate will be taking a full week off for Memorial Day. Time spent in their home states will be predictive of the attitudes they will have upon their return. Most Senators have the common sense to know that just because there are 90 calls to their office opposing CIR and 10 supporting it, this number is certainly not reflective of the attitude of most Americans.
Remember the loudmouths in grade school? They always seemed to hog an inordinate amount of attention. Those who support solving our immigration crisis should give their Senators a call to let them know. Even if it will only dilute the anti-immigrant screaming. CNN or FOX showed that a couple of Senators (Graham from South Carolina and another one whose name escapes me) were “booed” at speeches in which immigration was mentioned. It was all over the news. One of the speeches was recorded with a camera-phone (probably by one of the “booers”). These are cheap publicity stunts, but they work. How many people booing does it take to get a reaction, 3 or 4? The antis are well-organized and make it a point to show up. Supporters must do the same. Have a great weekend.
