URGENT: Tell The Senate to Vote Against Immunity!
Friday morning, the House voted to pass an unconstitutional bill that would grant immunity from the law to the phone companies that illegally participated in the White House's warrantless wiretapping program.
Now the bill moves to the Senate. Passing it would amount to a Congressional seal of approval on illegal surveillance. The bill would destroy our best chance for a judicial ruling on whether the President can grant corporations permission to break the law with impunity.
Some have called the bill a balanced compromise between extremes, but this is pure spin. In reality, it's nothing less than a complete cave to the phone companies' and White House's demands.
Please contact your Senators, remind them we're watching, and urge them to stand up to the White House and oppose the FISA Amendments Act!
