The White House is reaching out to fence-sitting Republican Senators trying to earn their vote on the DREAM Act. A new report from the National Journal says that members of the President's cabinet are targeting Sens. Collins and Snowe from Maine, Sen. LeMieux of Florida, and Sen. Hutchison of Texas. Call the Capitol Switchboard NOW and urge these Senators and your Members of Congress to oppose the DREAM Act Amnesty -- 202-224-3121.
In the last few days, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, Commerce Secretary Gary Locke, Director of Intergovernmental Affairs Cecelia Munoz, and Education Secretary Arne Duncan have all tried to lure "yes" votes out of key Senators.
There's no indication of whether or not the White House efforts are working, but it is at least trying to give the impression that they're willing to help pass a bill that would provide amnesty to at least 2.1 million illegal aliens.
For more information, see the National Journal.
