  2. Nov 18 - Enacting The Dream

    -----------------IMMIGRATION DAILY FROM ILW.COM------------------
    November 18, 2010
    http://www.ilw.com/immigrationdaily/digest/2010,1118.shtm
    ITEMS
    1. Comment: Enacting The Dream - DREAM is back on the agenda in
    the lame duck session. While Comprehensive Immigration Reform
    remains the long-term goal of the Democratic leadership, their
    current goal is enacting the DREAM Act before the 111th Congress
    adjourns for the last time. Reportedly, Speaker Pelosi will bring
    DREAM to the House floor as a standalone bill during the week of
    November 29. For both the healthcare and climate bills, Ms.
    Pelosi demonstrated her stellar capacity for whipping,
    immigration advocates are counting on her to deliver the votes
    this time. Should the House pass a standalone DREAM bill, it will
    ease Majority Leader Reid's efforts to find the Republican votes
    necessary for Senate passage. The ball is firmly and finally in
    Ms. Pelosi's court, we urge Ms. Pelosi onwards to passage.

  3. Nov 17 - Down Payment On Promises

    -----------------IMMIGRATION DAILY FROM ILW.COM------------------
    November 17, 2010
    http://www.ilw.com/immigrationdaily/digest/2010,1117.shtm
    ITEMS
    1. Comment: Down Payment On Promises - Politico reports that at a
    meeting with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus President Obama
    promised to push for the passage of the DREAM Act.
    http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1110/45243.html
    Majority Leader Reid and Speaker Pelosi have already indicated
    that they will bring DREAM to the floors of their respective
    chambers. The Huffington Post
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/clarissa-martinez-de-castro/latinos-voting-and-future_b_784157.html
    points out that Latino voters were critical to several Democratic
    victories in the recent election, and that Latino voters will be
    an even larger factor in the 2012 election. For the past two
    years, the Democratic leadership has been able to string along
    Latino voters on promises alone without actually coming through
    on any immigration benefits at all. The lame duck session is the
    last chance Democrats have to demonstrate their sincerity and
    credibility on the immigration issue since action in the next
    Congress will be stymied by the incoming House Republican
    majority. Passing the DREAM Act now will provide a powerful
    reason for a key constituency to turn out for the Democrats in
    2012 when Mr. Obama and Democrats in Congress will both need all
    the allies they can get.
