The Amnesty Blocking Bills made a little progress on Monday. Two more heroes came forward, both signing Congressman Quayle’s HR 5953. They were

Rep. Rodney Alexander [R-LA5] (joined Jun 25, 2012)
Rep. Paul Gosar [R-AZ1] (joined Jun 25, 2012)


This brings HR 5953 to 32 Cosponsors. Congressman Schweikert’s HR 5957 has 20 and Congressman Lamar Smith’s HR 2497 which I discussed yesterday, has 55.

Now that America’s  Supreme Legislative Body has decreed that the Executive Branch can pick and choose about enforcing federal laws, tight Congressional supervision is essential.

There are a total of 107 cosponsorships here. From a policy creation point of view, since these are essentially petitions, to be a serious Patriot a Congressman should have signed all three measures.

Only 4 have, one being Congressman Schweikert. Ben Quayle, his upcoming primary rival, has not signed Schweikert’s bill or the Smith bill, which dates from July last year. A total of 59 Representatives have only signed one.

Co sponsorships can be found by opening the cosponsor pop up on the Govtrack.us page for each Bill (follow `HR` links).

For convenience, here is today’s list
