  4. Jan 18 - Crocodile Lamar

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

    January 18, 2011

    http://www.ilw.com/immigrationdaily/digest/2011,0118.shtm

    ITEMS

    1. Comment: Crocodile Lamar - Mort Kondracke, Executive Editor of

    RollCall recently wrote a column titled "'Nativist Lobby' Is

    Winning on Immigration"

    http://www.rollcall.com/issues/56_67/-202427-1.html

    offering the sage and obvious observation that "The failure of

    Congress and two presidents to enact immigration reform is

    plunging the nation into an ugly future." Rep. Lamar Smith, Chair

    of the House Judiciary Committee replied in a column published

    today in RollCall

    http://www.rollcall.com/issues/56_68/-202502-1.html

    with the usual litany of bogus claims that many Republicans have

    come to make on immigration matters, especially the fig-leaf of

    pretending to be for "the rule of the law" except for those laws

    that he disagrees with. One paragraph in particular is important

    for pro-immigrationists to grasp the significance of, and act

    upon, if disaster in the 112th Congress is to be avoided. Mr.

    Smith writes:

    "More than 26 million Americans are unemployed or underemployed.

    Meanwhile, 7 million illegal immigrants remain in the U.S. work

    force. We could make jobs available for citizens and legal

    immigrants if we simply enforced our current immigration laws."

    Mr. Smith's statement is wrong on two counts (and it's the second

    count that matters): Firstly, the 7 million undocumented

    Americans aren't leaving the US, even if the US were to use

    Gestapo techniques, shooting people in the streets (the American

    people will not stand for it). Secondly, it's the issue of who do

    those jobs belong to - American employers or American employees.

    If it is American employees, as Mr. Smith implies, then why does

    Mr. Smith support free trade where employers, both American and

    foreign, can choose which countries to site many jobs. A person

    who insists that American jobs belong to American employees

    cannot logically support free trade which posits that jobs belong

    to employers. More than logic is at stake here - a big chunk of

    Mr. Smith's campaign funds likely come from corporations and

    lobbyists who are counting on Mr. Smith to deliver on the claim

    that he makes on the "issues" page of his House website:

    http://lamarsmith.house.gov/Issues/Issue/?IssueID=13815

    "I believe that free trade is vital to economic growth and job

    stability". What Mr. Smith really means is this: American jobs

    belong to American employers who can move them wherever in the

    world they wish - however, if those jobs stay in America but are

    held by people of color then Mr. Smith has a big problem that

    "the law isn't being followed".

    Mr. Smith has happily persisted in his contradictions, without

    contradicting Mr. Kondracke in the interests of intellectual

    debate. Why does Mr. Smith issue his lamentations now? Mr.

    Smith's crocodile tears on enforcement do have a motive, and it

    is this motive that advocates should understand and act upon. The

    Supreme Court will soon issue a decision on the Arizona E-Verify

    case (Chamber of Commerce of the United States v. Whiting), which

    has been litigated for several years. Justice Kagan has recused

    herself from this case, as she has with many other cases she was

    involved in as Solicitor General. Gary Endelman opines that in

    consequence of the recusal, it is even more likely that Mr.

    Kennedy, the court's traditional swing vote, will not create a

    4-4 split (Mr. Endelman has been consistently right in his

    predictions on this litigation). Instead, Mr. Kennedy is likely

    to side with the conservatives on the court and the Supreme Court

    will likely pronounce Arizona's E-Verify statute constitutional.

    We believe that Mr. Smith is preparing for this decision,

    expected within weeks, to launch an E-Verify blitzkrieg, and

    cause the House to pass stridently anti-immigration legislation

    including mandatory E-Verify requirements for employers. Unless

    advocates frame the issue correctly to the public and build a

    strong firewall in the Senate, President Obama may be too scared

    to veto the bill. Mr. Obama has not yet delivered his State of

    the Union address. If he takes a strong pro-immigration position

    in his remarks to Congress then, perhaps Mr. Obama might yet

    stiffen the spines of Senators. The best way to implement a

    firewall against Mr. Smith is this: The important thing is NOT to

    kill Mr. Smith's bad bill, terrible though it will be. Instead,

    it is important to attach large quantities of benefits to it in

    the Senate and send it back to the House. When Mr. Smith then

    directs that his bill be killed, supporters of immigration in

    Congress will be able to paint Mr. Smith et al as BOTH anti-

    benefits and anti-enforcement.

    That is why Mr. Smith's crocodile tears in RollCall are

    significant, we urge those who support immigration benefits to

    notice Mr. Smith's strategy and act accordingly, the 112th

    Congress's immigration report card is at stake.
