    1. Comment: American DREAMs - A New York Times editorialhttp://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/30/opinion/30tue2.html?ref=opinionstates: "If the Dream Act passes, credit must go to those whohave fought for it most strenuously, at greater personal risk andinconvenience than anyone else: the young people whose futures itwill decide." The battle for the DREAM Act has featuredundocumented immigrants stepping out of the shadows to declarethemselves "undocumented and unafraid." Given the impasse overimmigration law since 9/11, our country has witnessed an unusualphenomenon: a large number of long-time undocumented aliens. Thisgroup has cowered in the shadows, afraid of drawing notice tothemselves. In contrast, the young Americans who would benefit byDREAM have stepped bravely into the light. Without any connectionto the power brokers on the Hill "the DREAMers" have proven thatthey can get their pet bill on the radar of the professionals,and on the Congressional agenda. These youth are Americans,except on paper. They are ready to join our armed forces andprotect our countryhttp://www.letusserve2010.org/home/and are ready to put their college education to work in oureconomy.We welcome the signs by Majority Leader Reid and Speaker Pelosithat they will bring DREAM for a vote in the respective chambers.However, to enact DREAM, all stakeholders need to chip in.Democrats need to reach across the aisle; Republicans need toremember the values that motivated them to co-sponsor the DREAMAct back in 2003; pro-immigrant organizations need to mobilizetheir bases and spend their funding and resources in ways thatcan make a difference in this battle; and finally, Congressionalleaders and President Obama need to fulfill their promises andmake the American dreams of our undocumented youth happen. Toexpress support for DREAM to Congress, call: 866-587-3023.

    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

  3. Nov 24 - Chamber, Vehicle And Vote

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

    ITEMS
    1. Comment:
    Chamber, Vehicle And Vote - There are three questions standing
    between DREAM and its enactment: Which chamber votes first? What
    vehicle will be used for the bill? Are there enough votes to pass
    the bill? We comment on these below, along with why this is
    important to all those affected by immigration benefits,
    particularly employment-based immigration benefits.
    First, lets look at the order of the votes in the chambers: If it
    is the intention of the Democratic leadership to merely make a
    statement, the Senate can go first. If it is the intention of the
    Democratic leadership to actually enact legislation, the House
    may have to go first. The record demonstrates this - when the
    leadership was serious about passing the health care and climate
    change bills, the House took the lead, since the Democrats
    enjoyed a near-super-majority in that chamber, and a mere
    majority is sufficient for passage. However, tough votes are
    always on a razor's edge in the Senate, where a super-majority is
    always needed for cloture. Moreover, the passage of a bill by the
    House creates momentum for it to be passed in the Senate.
    Next, lets look at the possible vehicles for DREAM: In the House,
    the Republican minority will try to defeat DREAM with the limited
    options offered to them through House rules. It is advantageous
    to DREAM proponents to choose a vehicle for the DREAM Act which
    can ensure quick passage, instead of having to deal with
    amendments and other parliamentary maneuvers the would be in
    order should DREAM be offered as a stand-alone bill on the House
    floor. The House Democratic leadership could bring the Haitian
    Orphan bill to the floor and offer DREAM as an amendment to that
    bill. This would would forestall Republican options and make
    possible swift passage. As the Senate has already passed the
    Haitian Orphan bill, it could take the amended bill the House
    passes and vote on it directly. The other option for the Senate
    would be to offer DREAM as an amendment to the military
    appropriations bill. This is not a likely option because "Don't
    Ask Don't Tell" is already an organic part of the military
    appropriations bill, and the combined defections due to DADT and
    DREAM will likely sink both provisions. The Senate's work on both
    DADT and DREAM, both priorities of the President and the
    Congressional majority, will be complicated should DREAM be taken
    up through the military appropriations bill. While the Senate
    could, as Majority Leader Reid has stated, take up DREAM as a
    stand-alone on the Senate floor, House passage of the Haitian
    Orphan bill would simplify the Senate's work.
    Next, lets look at the votes, and begin with the votes in the
    House: With House Democrats still enjoying a large majority and
    with Speaker Pelosi's proven and superb whipping ability,
    Democrats have the power to pass virtually any bill in the House.
    They may have to compromise to ensure passage, and perhaps
    compromise a lot, but the the House Democratic leadership
    possesses the wherewithal to ensure passage of DREAM. Failure to
    ensure passage can only be interpreted as a deliberate decision
    by the House Democratic leadership to abandon immigrants. If the
    House does not pass DREAM now, Democrats will cede the
    immigration issue entirely to the Republicans in the next
    Congress, who will cast it as one of internal enforcement and
    border security. To retain credibility on immigration, House
    Democrats need to show some results, or at least an attempt to
    obtain results. So far the historic House majority in the 111th
    Congress has produced nothing on immigration - not even hot air.
    If Democrats expect this to be a winning strategy, they are
    conceding the immigrant vote to the Republicans, as witnessed by
    the 7 new Hispanic Republicans who will join the 112th Congress.
    Finally, lets look at the big issue (and in some sense the only
    issue): Are there 60 votes in the Senate to pass DREAM? Even
    though Republican Sen. Lugar is DREAM's co-sponsor and steadfast
    supporter, there are likely to be several Democratic defections
    in the Senate and votes of at least five Republican Senators will
    be needed to pass this bill. The best place to see the list of
    crucial Senators for the DREAM vote is from the anti-
    immigrationists' whip count,
    http://www.numbersusa.com/content/nusablog/beckr/november-23-2010/most-undecideds-should-break-against-dream-amnesty-bill-modification
    here they are:
    Olympia Snowe (R-Maine), Byron Dorgan (D-North Dakota), Lisa
    Murkowski (R-Alaska), Sam Brownback (R-Kansas), Mary Landrieu (D-
    Louisiana), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Debbie Stabenow (D-
    Michigan), Claire McCaskill (D-Missouri), Max Baucus (D-Montana),
    Ben Nelson (D-Nebraska), Kay Hagan (R-North Carolina),  Kent
    Conrad (D-North Dakota), Lindsay Graham (R-South Carolina), and
    Joe Manchin (D-West Virginia)
    The battle for DREAM will set the tone for all immigration
    battles over the next Congress and perhaps beyond. If DREAM is
    enacted now, there will be a chance to get modest immigration
    benefits acceptable to some Republicans in the 112th Congress
    such as more EB numbers, nurse relief, more H1B numbers, etc.
    Failure to pass DREAM now removes any incentive for the
    Republicans to co-operate with the Democrats on passing any
    immigration benefits, since the steps of a million immigrant
    students marching towards citizenship would be silenced by
    failure. Not only would the incoming House Republican majority be
    emboldened to jettison any immigration benefits by DREAM's
    failure, the bogeyman of no immigration benefits post 9/11 will
    not have been exorcised. We urge you to email and fax and call
    the Senators in the list above and get as many other people as
    you can to do the same.

  4. Nov 23 - Children Are Our Future

    -----------------IMMIGRATION DAILY FROM ILW.COM------------------
    November 23, 2010
    http://www.ilw.com/immigrationdaily/digest/2010,1123.shtm
    ITEMS
    1. Comment: Children Are Our Future - The Democratic leadership
    has indicated that DREAM will be on the Congressional floor
    beginning next week onwards. DREAM has 134 co-sponsors in the
    House and 40 in the Senate. Meanwhile, Miami Herald
    http://www.miamiherald.com/2010/11/18/1931760/birthright-citizenship-will-be.html#ixzz15kSU2UjR
    reports that "As one of its first acts, the new Congress will
    consider denying citizenship to the children of illegal
    immigrants who are born in the United States. Those children, who
    are now automatically granted citizenship at birth, will be one
    of the first targets of the Republican-led House when it convenes
    in January. GOP Rep. Steve King of Iowa, the incoming chairman of
    the subcommittee that oversees immigration, is expected to push a
    bill that would deny "birthright citizenship" to such children."
    The DREAM Act and the attempt to repeal the 14th Amendment are
    diametrically opposite views of children. Are children an asset
    or a liability? Our future hangs in the balance.

    http://www.ilw.com/immigrationdaily/digest/2010,1122.shtm
    ITEMS
    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.
