Vote Tomorrow! This is it!

Posted on December 17, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Hey Beautiful People,

In case you haven’t subscribed to the USSA list serve…here is the latest information.

Tomorrow, the Senate will be holding a procedural vote on the DREAM Act, which will require 60 votes, leading to a final vote either this weekend or next week. We need to keep up the pressure on target Senators to ensure the legislation passes! The House of Representatives passed the DREAM Act last week with bipartisan support; let’s get the same outcome in the Senate!

USSA is targeting Senator George LeMiemux (R-FL), a swing vote whose support could mean the difference between the DREAM Act passing and failing. Anti-DREAM Act forces have been busy reaching out to Senator LeMiemux and telling him to vote no. Here’s how you can fight back:

Call 202-224-3041 for Senator George LeMiemux’s office.
Once connected to his office, say: “My name is _____ and I’m a student with the United States Student Association, which represents over 4 million students nationwide, including students in Florida. I urge Senator LeMiemux to vote ‘yes’ on the DREAM Act because everyone deserves the opportunity to achieve the American Dream through a college education or military service. Thank you.”
Post on Senator LeMieux’s facebook wall by visiting http://www.facebook.com/pages/George-LeMieux/153771371660?ref=ts, “liking” his page, and posting: Senator LeMiemux, please vote YES on the DREAM Act; everyone deserves the chance to achieve the American Dream through a college education or military service. Thank you!
Want to do even more? Call 1-866-587-3023 for the Senate Switchboard and do the same for other target Senators:

Kay Hutchinson (R-TX)
John Ensign (R-NV)
Mark Kirk (R-IL)
Olympia Snowe (R-ME)
Susan Collins (R-ME)
Sam Brownback (R-KS)
Richard Lugar (R-IN)
Bob Bennett (R-UT)
George Voinovich (R-OH)
Lisa Murkowski (R-AL)
John McCain (R-AZ)
Jon Kyle (R-AZ)
John Cornyn (R-TX)
Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
Orrin Hatch (R-UT)
Mark Pryor (D-AR)
Mary Landrieu (D-LA)
Kay Hagan (D-NC)
Kent Conrad (D-ND)
Joe Manchin (WV)
By Monday, the DREAM Act could be sitting on President Obama’s desk ready to become law! Help make that a reality by taking action today!

In solidarity,

Lindsay McCluskey, USSA President
