Senate Bill 6, which would end the practice of rewarding illegal aliens with drivers licenses is now dead for the year in the $ Republican-controlled Georgia state Senate $.
We have been temporarily beaten by the Ag lobby, Republican Governor Nathan Deal, Republican Lt. Governor Casey Cagle, the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, the AJC-led media and the senate Republicans who regard voters with an unimaginable level of contempt. They are all laughing at us right now…
IN ADDITION TO SB 6 SPONSOR, SENATOR JOSH McKOON, WE THANK THE BRAVE, PRO-AMERICAN REPUBLICANS IN THE GEORGIA SENATE WHO CO-SIGNED SB 6:
Sens. Mike Crane, Steve Gooch, William Ligon, Bill Heath, PK Martin, Greg Kirk, Bruce Thompson, Marty Harbin, Frank Ginn, Michael Williams, Judson Hill and Hunter Hill.
There are 38 GOP Senators in the Georgia Senate.
As we have been telling you since the beginning of session, the plan from Lt. Governor Casey Cagle all along was to stall any committee action on SB 6 until it was too late in the session to do anything with it. Preventing a vote on SB 6 in the senate was priority number one because there would have been a record of which GOP Senators support drivers licenses for illegal aliens – future Democrat voters. I was reminded today that because of senate rules on committee hearings and “second reading” of bill, the “too late day” day was yesterday, (Monday) Day 28 of the session. Again, unless some rules are suspended, SB 6 is dead for 2015.
Siding with Barack Obama, the ACLU and the race-baiters in the tribalist anti-borders lobby, the Chamber of Commerce ordered that illegal aliens would continue to get Georgia driver’s licenses. So they will. Because Georgia is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Georgia Chamber of Commerce.
UNLESS WE NOW PUT ‘PLAN B’ INTO ACTION.
Plan B involves something called a “floor amendment.” A senate floor amendment is language inserted into a bill that has already been through the committee process just before the entire senate votes on the bill. For example: (Generally speaking, on SB 6) A bill related to driver’s licenses that has already passed the House being considered on the senate floor between now and the end of session can have wording added that would prevent illegals from getting a Georgia drivers license. To do that, when a related bill comes up for a vote, a senator makes a motion to amend the bill and presents his language to alter the bill. That amendment is then voted on if another senator seconds the motion. If the amendment gets a vote, then enough senators must demand a “YEAS AND NAYS” recorded vote, on the tally machine which creates a permanent record of who voted and in what way. One of the tricks that Lt. Governor Cagle will try here is to allow the Republican controlled senate to vote without recording the votes on the machine, so that no one can prove which senator voted YEA or NAY. This can be stopped by any six senators present. We can still produce a recorded vote on drivers licenses for illegal aliens in Georgia.
Then, if successful, the entire amended bill is voted on. With a recorded vote.
Rule of Law Republicans vs. Chamber of Commerce Republicans – a Dustin Inman Society locator project
One of the reasons we have been putting so much pressure on Georgia state Senators to publicly support SB 6 by co-sponsoring/signing it was to illustrate which of them are truly on the side of the American people, on the side of protecting our lives, jobs, wages, borders. language and Rule of Law and which of them have sold out to the Georgia Chamber of Commerce and the ACLU/GALEO and joined the Democrats in the “no illegal alien left behind” effort. We think we have done that very well.
Below, we list the Republican state Senators’ who fit into that latter Chamber of Commerce group. If you see your own senator on the below list of senators who DID NOT CO-SIGN SB 6, please give your own state Senator’s office a call (then send an email) and leave a thought for the day and explain to the staffer that you know which side the senator is on, you know about about the floor amendment process and are still watching the illegal alien driver’s license sell-out. Try to remember that the senators are supposed to work for you…not the other way around. CONTACT INFO HERE.
**We hope you will pay special attention to Senator John Albers. Like many of them, he thinks he is invisible.
We also remind you that there is no bill in the Republican-controlled Georgia House to stop illegal aliens from getting a drivers license.
