5/18 Update 1


We're going to make an educated guess and put Hagel in "For" now based on these paragraphs from today's Lincoln Journal Star:

"The Nebraska Republican has been a leader in proposing comprehensive reforms that include a pathway to earned legal status for illegal immigrants already settled in the United States."

"Hagel told a telephone news conference he believes senators and the White House may be “pretty close” to reaching a compromise on immigration legislation."

There are a LOT of Senators who are sill silent on this bill. Websites have updates from 5/17 about the budget, about water, etc. but are ignoring this issue. I see this as a window of opportunity for their constituents to make their views known. These next few days are absolutely vital -- you CAN make an impact.


Ted Poe (R-TX) is "against."

Tom Price (R-GA) is "against."
