    1. Comment: Pro Democrat Or Pro Immigrant - Most pundits and
    knowledgeable political observers appear convinced that the
    Republican Party is on the cusp of a major election victory in a
    few weeks. Even should these well-regarded and independent
    professionals turn out to be wrong, and so even should the
    Republican Party fail by a few seats to have an out-right
    majority, nonetheless it is manifest that the GOP's new-found
    numerical strength in the 112th Congress will be more than enough
    to make it impossible for any liberal agenda to have any hope
    whatsoever. Much more likely appears to be the scenario where the
    GOP captures the House by a handsome 50+ seats, and either barely
    captures or comes just close to capturing the Senate.
    Those who advocate for immigration causes in DC would be well-
    advised to be pro-active about such changes to come. It would be
    prudent to prepare to deal with Chairmen Lamar Smith and Steve
    King in the House and Chairmen Sessions and Cornyn in the Senate.
    A version of the Shuler bill, i.e. all the enforcement mechanisms
    of CIR without any of CIR's benefits, is likely to pass a
    Republican House - it would be prudent to begin contemplating
    what benefits could be attached to such a bill in the Senate.
    With President Obama's record being what it is, it would be
    unwise to bet on the veto pen, and advocates should be ready for
    the possibility that draconian enforcement plus DREAM may be the
    realistic output of the 112th Congress.
    Unfortunately, some "pro-immigrant" advocates are in reality pro-
    Democrat full-time, and pro-immigrant only when it suits them. We
    understand that perhaps a million or more valuable dollars are
    being spent by them in a futile quest to save a few Democratic
    seats against an expected Republican tsunami. Those dollars would
    be much better spent buying access to the incoming Republican
    majority. Immigrants are slowly getting wise to this two-faced
    approach by DC insiders. Predictably, those immigrants who are
    "getting it" are those who are American in all but paperwork,
    those who were educated and raised here, i.e. "the Dreamers", as
    they call themselves. The failed DREAM effort in the Senate of a
    few weeks back is testament to the growing political savvy of
    American immigrants today. What they have in abundance is energy,
    numbers, and ideas. What is lacking so far is funding and
    institutions, these will not be long coming. So-called "pro-
    immigrant" advocates face a clear choice - abandon partisanship
    and stand up for immigrants' true interests, or remain pro-
    Democrat and face being left behind as America's immigrants rise
    over the coming years.

    ITEMS
    1. Comment: Texas Swing State -
    An early read of the Census numbers
    http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/48000.html
    shows Texas, already the second-largest electoral prize after
    California, gaining four more House seats. Texas has been a solid
    "Red" state and the cornerstone of all Republican victories after
    Reagan. The math for the Electoral College dictates that a
    Republican can only win the White House by winning Texas, since
    California and New York are solid "Blue" states, and beyond the
    reach of even a strong Republican candidate. Hispanics now
    account for around 37% of the population of Texas, and more than
    half the babies born in Texas are Hispanic. It is foolish for
    some in the Republican Party to ignore this crucial demographic
    trend. This is because alienating Hispanic voters would make
    Texas a "Purple" swing state, and thereby risk making Republican
    aspirations to the Whitehouse to be put on hold for the
    foreseeable future. Those in the Republican Party who want their
    party to succeed to the Presidency in the 2010s should pursue a
    pro-immigration agenda, and ensure that the Hispanic vote is
    split between the Parties.

    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
    happening to you in the future, please add Immigration Daily
    (editor@ilw.com) to your email program contact list, mark the
    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,
    please contact the customer service of your ISP to report the
    problem and let us know of the problem by writing to
    webmaster@ilw.com.

    witness stand, helping us win nearly unwinnable cases with
    aplomb.  He has won the praise of numerous Immigration Judges."
    (Svetlana Schreiber, Esq.) ... "He provided the testimony we
    needed in numerous asylum cases ... in virtually all of those
    cases, but for the expert witness testimony, I doubt the cases
    would have been approved, I recommend Professor Gabbay to anyone
    with issues involving Islamic society and culture." (Stephen
    Berman, Esq.) ... "His testimonies, whether written or oral, are
    credible, persuasive, and non-refutable. I have never lost a
    single case which had Dr. Gabbay on as an expert witness." (Ally
    Bolour, Esq.). Contact Professor Gabbay with any questions. He
    can also recomend country experts outside his specialty.

    ITEMS
    1. Comment: Fighting Words - All parts of the Constitution are
    NOT equal to all other parts. Some are special, here's why. Let's
    begin with the Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights was the price of
    ratification for the constitution. We would argue that regardless
    of the text of the Constitution, the normal amendment process
    CANNOT apply to the Bill of Rights, since an amendment to the
    Bill of Rights negates the very basis of the adoption of the
    constitution. Such power is beyond the reach of ordinary
    legislatures (even when 3/4ths of the states concur), and that
    only a Constitutional Assembly would have the authority to
    alter the Bill of Rights. Analogously, we would argue, that the
    Reconstruction Amendments are also unalterable, even through a
    constitutional amendment, since such an amendment would, in
    essence, seek to challenge the result reached in the Civil War.
    The Reconstruction Amendments were the price of reaching a lasting
    peace between the States, and anyone who tries to disturb the
    balance thus achieved risks a reprise of the events of 1861-65.
    This has particular relevance to amnesty - and we are not
    talking about the undocumented here. In our country's history,
    there have been three, and only three amnesties by the Federal
    Government. The first two, in 1868 by the President, and in
    1872, by Congress, were to pardon Confederates for treason and
    armed rebellion against the Union, and to restore their right
    to vote and hold federal office. The connection of our argument
    to the current efforts by some Republicans to question
    the 14th amendment is clear. The plain language of the 14th amendment
    gives us a bright line test of who is and who is not a US citizen
    at birth - the Jus Soli doctrine. Jus Soli is an ancient common
    law principle, older than our Republic. If the circumstances of
    the 14th amendment are to be re-examined, we would urge a
    re-examination simultaneously of the Amnesties of 1868 and
    1872. If some Republicans suggest that the bright-line, time-
    honored test of Jus Soli is to be abandoned, then we would urge
    a simultaneous abandonment, nay reversal, of the Amnesties of
    1868 and 1872. In particular, we would argue for the deportation
    from the United States of all the descendants of the beneficiaries
    of those Amnesties. We believe that much of the Republican
    Party in Congress would then be deportable, not just from power,
    but also from the country of their birth. The Civil War resulted
    in the deaths of 1 out of 10 fighting-age males in the North,
    and 1 out of 4 fighting-age males in the South - it was
    unquestionably the greatest catastrophe our Nation has
    ever suffered. Those Republicans who are contemplating a
    discussion questioning the 14th amendment should pause before
    lightly embarking on a venture that may, if history is our guide,
    risk bloodshed. The Reconstruction amendments cemented the
    cessation of hostilities between the North and the South,
    much blood, Northern and Southern, supports the hard-earned meaning
    of the Reconstruction amendments. Reopening that discussion might
    portend reopening Civil War wounds. We urge patriotic
    Republicans, and indeed patriotic Americans of all political
    stripes, to impress upon the mis-guided Republicans these two
    facts: (1) the meaning of the 14th amendment is in its plain
    language which could not be plainer, and (2) the proceedings on
    which the 14th amendment is based were terminated at
    Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865. Unless some Republicans
    want to be extra-ordinarily foolish at extra-ordinary risk to
    the country, they should refrain from fighting words.
