  1. Dec 16 - Endgame For 111th Nears

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

    December 16, 2010

    http://www.ilw.com/immigrationdaily/digest/2010,1216.shtm

    ITEMS

    1. Comment: Endgame For 111th Nears - The endgame of the 111th

    Congress is now playing out. Several pieces of large legislation,

    hundreds of pages long (and in one case, almost 2,000 pages long)

    are in play. The reason this is important is that many important

    immigration bills have historically been shoe-horned into large

    bills, typically appropriations bills, at the end of

    Congressional terms. Several immigration-related issues may make

    it into law this time also. We examine below the large bills

    still in play, and the several immigration related issues which

    are also in play.

    The large bills still unresolved are: A almost 2,000 page Omnibus

    Appropriations bill for the balance of FY 2011, the tax cut bill,

    a major lands/water bill. The foregoing are issues for both

    chambers, but the Senate has additional time-consuming matters on

    its hands: the START treaty on which floor discussion and

    amendments are ongoing, and hundreds of nominations, particularly

    judicial nominations which are pending. Another drain on the

    Senate's time will be the stand-alone bill for DADT repeal which

    cleared the House earlier this week, and is all set for a

    showdown on the Senate floor.

    The immigration issues are of course DREAM, and numerous

    provisions in the Omnibus Appropriations Bills, in Divisions B,

    F, H and K of the current draft. These numerous provisions

    include funding for various immigration programs, with several

    levels of funding going up and down from the previous fiscal

    year, and several immigration-related earmarks, including some

    for ICE.

    Here is our best look at the Crystal Ball on how the

    Congressional schedule, especially the Senate schedule will play

    out, and what this means for the immigration-related provisions,

    including DREAM. Given that the Senate has taken up the START

    treaty in earnest, and given that the House is likely to take its

    last shot on the tax cut bill soon, both these political

    behemoths should be out of the way by early next week. The big

    issues pending then will be: the Omnibus, the lands/water bill,

    DADT repeal, DREAM, and of course, the nominations. Should even

    one Republican Senator object to each of these, it is impossible

    to finish all of these in the Senate before the 112th Congress

    convenes, even should the 111th Congress work on both Christmas

    Day and New Year's Day. So, either things will get dropped, or

    combined (except for nominations, which cannot be combined).

    Combination is politically tricky, since the votes on all these

    issues are not 100% aligned. Two scenarios present themselves as

    likely: (1) the Omnibus is dropped in favor of a short-term

    Continuing Resolution, the nominations are postponed to the next

    Congress, and the lands/water bill is forgotten. If this scenario

    happens, this will leave the stage clear for votes on DADT and

    DREAM, and the way things stand now in the Senate, DADT will

    likely pass, and DREAM will likely fail. However, there is

    another possible scenario - (2) the 6,000+ earmarks for $8

    billion in the Omnibus will carry the day on the Senate floor,

    and if this happens, the lands/water bill, DADT, and DREAM will

    all likely be collapsed into one giant 3,000 page bill. If this

    scenario happens, the giant bill, with DREAM in it, will almost

    certainly pass. In other words, the fate of DREAM is likely tied

    up in whether enough Republican Senators (including some

    notorious DREAM opposers) want their earmarks badly enough. We

    will find out soon, stay tuned to Immigration Daily - never a

    dull moment at the end of any Congressional term!

  3. Dec 14 - Wither DREAM

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

    December 14, 2010

    http://www.ilw.com/immigrationdaily/digest/2010,1214.shtm

    ITEMS

    1. Comment: Wither DREAM - There are three reasons for the bar to

    support DREAM: (1) it will pave the way for employment-based

    immigration bills in the next Congress, since Democratic votes

    will be necessary on both the House and Senate floors to pass

    these bills, this Democratic support may not materialize if DREAM

    dies; (2) a not-insignificant fraction of DREAM beneficiaries

    will need legal counsel, one of the few bright spots on the

    horizon for law firms suffering from the Great Recession; and (3)

    it is a matter of doing justice to half a million innocent young

    people.

    The DREAM Act is now just one roll-call vote away from passage in

    the 111th Congress.

    However, Congress remains deadlocked, and the time for action is

    fast-dwindling. DADT repeal, START, and judicial nominations all

    wait in the wings for very limited Senate floor time. While

    Majority Leader Reid has promised a vote on DREAM before the

    111th adjourns, and we believe him, there is no sure path to

    passage visible at this time, and indeed prospects to secure the

    last 5 votes to invoke cloture are dim.

    If DREAM passage is to be ensured, the sure-fire method is to

    attach it to a must-pass bill. Two such bills are currently in

    play and DREAM could conceivably be attached to either. The bills

    are of course, the tax cut bill and the Continuing Resolution for

    Appropriations for FY 2011. Such attachment, while it would

    guarantee success for DREAM, is a long-shot, since the politics

    of both the tax bill and the CR bill are complicated enough

    already. However, even serious discussion about attaching DREAM

    to the must-pass bills would go a long way to getting the 60

    votes on the stand-alone bill.

    We believe that this long-odds measure should at least be given a

    try since the possibility to secure significant immigration

    benefits has never been higher in the post-9/11 world. Killing

    the benefits bogeyman by enacting DREAM is a worthy goal, we urge

    our readers to take to their social media accounts and make their

    views known.

    1. Comment: Make Sure You Get It - Internet Service Providers

    (ISPs) are combating spam through a variety of filters and

    blocking software to trap emails before they even reach one's

    email inbox. The upshot is that many ISPs are incorrectly

    categorizing legitimate email as undesired and

    preventing these emails from ever reaching your inbox. If you are

    experiencing email delivery issues, your ISP may have blocked

    Immigration Daily delivery. To reduce the chances of this

    email as "not junk" or add it to your "white list"--whichever is

    applicable. This lets your ISP know that you want the email

    delivered and reduces the chance of it being blocked. In spite of

    this, If you do not receive your Immigration Daily issue anytime,
