  1. Oct 21 - Democratic Leadership Change

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

    ITEMS
    1. Comment: Democratic Leadership Change -  CQ Politics
    http://www.cqpolitics.com/wmspage.cfm?docID=news-000003747207
    points out that almost all the members of the Congressional
    Hispanic Caucus have held back their dues to Democratic
    Congressional Campaign Committee.
    "Others said they are frustrated with the lack of progress on
    comprehensive immigration reform. Those Members said they don't
    want their campaign dollars funding Democrats who have blocked
    progress on an overhaul. "I want to make sure that the money goes
    where I think it's most appropriate, to individuals who are very
    supportive," said Rep. Joe Baca (Calif.), who chaired the CHC in
    2007-08. Baca said he wanted to ensure his money went directly to
    those candidates and incumbents who support comprehensive
    reform."
    The current Democratic leadership has taken the Congressional
    Hispanic Caucus (and the entire pro-immigration movement) for
    granted, and has paid lip-service to their priorities while
    blocking them in action. The November election is an opportunity
    for changing the Democratic Congressional leadership so that it
    is true to the cause of immigration reform once more.

  3. Oct 19 - Congressional Immigration Report Card

    -----------------IMMIGRATION DAILY FROM ILW.COM------------------
    October 19, 2010
    http://www.ilw.com/immigrationdaily/digest/2010,1019.shtm
    ITEMS
    1. Comment: Congressional Immigration Report Card - To grasp the
    immigration achievements (or lack thereof) of the current
    Congress, let us put them in perspective of the last five
    Congresses to date.
    ++107th Congress (2001-02) - 245(i) extension (Passed in the
    House)
    ++108th Congress (2003-04) - Real ID (Passed in the House & the
    Senate and became law)
    ++109th Congress (2005-06) - McCain-Kennedy (Passed in the
    Senate) & Sensenbrenner (Passed in the House)
    ++110th Congress (2007-08) - Kennedy-Kyl (Failed in the Senate) &
    DREAM (Failed in the Senate)
    ++111th Congress (2009-10) - DREAM (Did not come up for a vote in
    either chamber)
    When Republicans controlled both House and Senate and also the
    White House, in the 108th Congress, they passed the Real ID Act
    enshrining their vision of enforcement into law. In the current
    111th Congress, the Democrats had overwhelming majorities in both
    House and Senate sufficient to pass legislation virtually
    unilaterally (as we saw in the healthcare bill). That, combined
    with control of the Presidency, presented them with a unique
    opportunity to pass significant immigration benefits. Yet they
    did not even vote on any major immigration legislation in either
    House or Senate. This Democratic Congress has been a monumental
    failure on immigration.

  5. Oct 15 - Immigrants, Latinos, Democrats

    -----------------IMMIGRATION DAILY FROM ILW.COM------------------
    October 15, 2010
    http://www.ilw.com/immigrationdaily/digest/2010,1015.shtm
    ITEMS
    1. Comment: Immigrants, Latinos, Democrats - The concentration of
    New Americans varies geographically. California, Florida, Nevada,
    New Jersey and New York are states with the highest concentration
    of immigrant registered voters (15%+ of registered voters in
    these states are New Americans). The list of states with a high
    concentration of Latino voters is quite different from the one
    above: Arizona, California, Nevada, Texas, New Mexico, and
    Florida (10%+ of registered voters of these states are Latino) -
    only California and Nevada make both lists. Arizona, Texas, New
    Mexico and Florida are states with relatively small New American
    registered voters, but relatively large Latino populations.
    Arizona, Texas and New Mexico are states where it was not people
    who crossed borders, but rather states where borders crossed
    people - the reason that the Latino vote in those states is
    relatively high is because of the various wars/purchases and
    other border adjustments that the US and Mexico underwent during
    the 19th century. Some of the Latinos of those states trace their
    land grants to the Spanish King - so, even though they are
    Latino, they are unlikely to have immigration as an important
    matter in their lives. Florida is a bit of an exception, since a
    significant portion of its Latinos are folks who were driven to
    the US because of the Cuban revolution. Confusing Latinos for
    immigrants is a common fallacy (among other things, it ignores
    the large number of Asian immigrants, about a third of the Latino
    population). Further, different immigrant groups have different
    voting patterns. For example, at the turn of the 20th century,
    Irish immigrants - largely concentrated in urban areas - voted as
    a solid block for the Democratic Party, whereas Italian
    immigrants were widely dispersed and their vote was split between
    the Republican and Democratic Parties. The most commonly
    encountered current voting disparity is that of Cuban emigres,
    who tend to vote Republican, whereas Latinos in California tend
    Democratic. Immigrants from the giant continent of Asia are
    hardly monolithic in their voting patterns, either.
    A common assumption many people have today is that Immigrant =
    Latino = Democrat, this is not borne out by the evidence. The
    facts lay the foundation for BOTH political parties to make a
    pitch for the fast-increasing, and sometimes even pivotal,
    immigrant vote. The election coming up in a few weeks is notable
    for an important immigration development - a small but vocal
    minority within the Republican Party that is virulently racist is
    likely to get more than a few seats in both Chambers of Congress.
    There is every reason to believe that in the 112th Congress, this
    small Republican faction will drive the immigrant vote into the
    Democratic Party's lap, jeopardizing Republican chances in key
    battleground states like Florida in election cycles to come. That
    is why the 112th Congress is important, and why we believe that
    the immigrant vote is not a construct of the future, but it is
    already here.
