  2. Jan 26 - Hot Air


    -----------------IMMIGRATION DAILY FROM ILW.COM------------------
    January 26, 2011

    http://www.ilw.com/immigrationdaily/digest/2011,0126.shtm
    ITEMS
    1. Comment: Hot Air - Yesterday's State of the Union address by
    President Obama contained 144 words on immigration. By contrast,
    his first SOTU address had 37 words. There is good reason to
    believe that all the words, whether 37 or 144, are just hot air.
    Firstly, the Republicans in Congress are unlikely to work with
    Mr. Obama on immigration.

    *
    http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2011/01/steve-king-obamas-immigration-plan-is-not-happening.php
    Secondly, Democrats no longer enjoy a majority in the House.
    Thirdly, it is an open question whether Mr. Obama actually wants
    to help immigrants, the Obama administration continues to deport
    immigrants in record numbers, which is undistinguishable from the
    "enforcement-first" philosophy espoused by the GOP.
    During his SOTU address, Mr. Obama said:
    "Today, there are hundreds of thousands of students
    excelling in our schools who are not American citizens. Some are
    the children of undocumented workers, who had nothing to do with
    the actions of their parents. They grew up as Americans and
    pledge allegiance to our flag, and yet live every day with the
    threat of deportation."
    If Mr. Obama actually means any of the words above, he can start
    by offering a TPS-like status to all DREAM beneficiaries. This
    action is entirely within Mr. Obama's unfettered Executive
    discretion, and requires no Congressional action whatsoever. As
    far as immigrant advocates are concerned, Mr.Obama's actions will
    speak louder than his words.

  3. Jan 25 - Twitter Lingo


    -----------------IMMIGRATION DAILY FROM ILW.COM------------------
    January 25, 2011

     
    http://www.ilw.com/immigrationdaily/digest/2011,0125.shtm
    ITEMS
    1. Comment: Twitter Lingo - Twitter, the popular microblogging
    website, continues to grow every day. With millions of users,
    Twitter has become the go-to platform to exchange information and
    get real-time updates with many things going on in the world. The
    usage of Twitter in the immigration law community is also
    exploding; immigration law attorneys, professionals, advocates,
    students and elected officials are joining the conversation. It
    is time for you to join as well!
    The first step is to create a Twitter account. Sign up here.

     
    https://twitter.com/signup
    Then, start to follow other Twitter-ers (your "following"), and
    others will start to follow you (your "followers").
    Before you start "tweeting", you should get familiar with some
    lingo used on Twitter. To mention other Twitter-ers in your
    message, simply write "@" followed by their username. For
    instance, if you want to mention ILW.COM, just add "@ilwcom" in
    your tweet. If you like what a fellow Twitter-er said, and you
    want to forward it to your followers, you can re-tweet or "RT"
    the message. Simply add the letters "RT" and the original
    Twitter-er's username to the tweet. For example, you can re-tweet
    one of our tweets by saying: "RT @ilwcom:..." Another useful
    symbol in Twitter is the hashtag, which is represented as "#".
    Hashtags are keywords or trending topics, which allow your tweet
    to show up on search queries and are also used to categorize
    messages. For example, if your tweet is about the DREAM Act, you
    can add "#dreamact" to your tweet and it will come up in queries
    and also will help make the DREAM Act a trending topic in
    Twitter. RTs, mentions, and hashtags are the main symbols in
    Twitter. We hope you can start using them soon, and don't forget
    to follow us on Twitter.

  4. Jan 24 - SOTU

    -----------------IMMIGRATION DAILY FROM ILW.COM------------------

    January 24, 2011

    http://www.ilw.com/immigrationdaily/digest/2011,0124.shtm

    ITEMS

    1. Comment: SOTU - President Obama addresses Congress tomorrow on

    the State of the Union. Last year, Mr. Obama paid only lip

    service to immigration in his SOTU address, which was a factor,

    albeit small, in keeping some Democratic supporters at home in

    November 2010, leading, in small part to the shellacking that the

    Democrats then received. This year, Mr. Obama will undoubtedly

    focus on jobs, the budget and the economy, these being the issues

    on which the 2012 election will largely turn. But not entirely.

    We believe immigration will be an issue in New Mexico, Nevada and

    Colorado for 2012. Charting a course to the White House without

    these three states is not easy, the electoral math for a Democrat

    is difficult without the Southwest, where the immigrant vote is

    no artifact of the future, but a reality today (just ask Sharon

    Angle). Mr. Obama faces a choice. He can pay more lip service to

    immigration again, perhaps a few more words than last year,

    undoubtedly that's what would please the Republicans most, being

    as they are about to launch an E-Verify blitzkrieg. Or he can

    pledge to take concrete steps entirely within his own unfettered

    Executive discretion - just as granting TPS to all - and

    guarantee real support from important voters in the Southwest and

    elsewhere. Either way, Mr. Obama can be sure that an interested

    and increasingly sophisticated immigrant press will be watching,

    and will deliver their judgment on his SOTU address where it

    matters most - the ballot box.
