—– Talking Points for Senate Offices —–

1. Vote no on the Hoeven amendment. Vote against cloture on the Hoeven amendment.

2. Even the liberal (and very partisan) Congressional Budget Office said that the underlying amnesty bill would have little impact on illegal immigration, reducing it by only 25%. This would be true — even after building long fences, adding more border agents, and establishing an Orwellian E-Verify system for workers.

3. Given that all the Hoeven amendment would do is fund more of the same agents, fences, and e-verify that CBO just said wouldn’t stop illegal immigration, you would be foolish to pass it without getting a new CBO estimate.
4. The one thing that Senator Chuck Schumer has consistently refused to do is to condition his 8,000,000 new (mostly anti-gun) voters on the proposition that the border will first be secured in a statistically demonstrable manner.

5. According to Breitbart, for all of the tens of billions of dollars of (non-offset) money Hoeven spends, it proceeds to newly make it lawful for illegal immigrants to PROSPECTIVELY overstay their visas and nevertheless get green cards under Gang of Eight amnesty provisions. Hence, it rewards illegals who PROSPECTIVELY violate our immigration laws, making it worse than the Gang of Eight draft.

6. Also according to Breitbart, Hoeven now contains a laundry-list of non-germane Cornhusker Kickback-style giveaways — intended to buy votes in exactly the same way Reid did on ObamaCare. Hence, Hoeven has correctly been billed as ObamaCare 2.0.

7. Please vote against cloture on the Hoeven amendment!
