  1. DREAM ACT VOTE COMING LATE TOMORROW OR EARLY SATURDAY

    by , 12-16-2010 at 07:05 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    Harry Reid filed for a cloture vote earlier tonight setting the clock in motion for a final vote on the measure.
  2. Dec 16 - Endgame For 111th Nears

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

    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. MARINE WIDOW PRIVATE BILL PASSES CONGRESS

    by , 12-16-2010 at 06:12 AM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    Both Houses of Congress have approved a rare private bill for Hotaru Ferschke, the Japanese widow of Sgt. Michael Ferschke who hailed from my home state of Tennessee. This is only the second private bill approved in the last five years.
    The Ferschkes were married in July 2008 in a proxy ceremony conducted over the telephone, a common practice for soldiers and one that is recognized by the Department of Defense, because Michael was deployed in Iraq at the time. One month later, Michael was killed in action. Hotaru was pregnant with Michael's son at the time he left his military base in Okinawa, but because the couple never saw each other after the wedding, the Department of Homeland Security has refused to recognize the marriage.
    The problem has now been solved and Hotaru and her son can now join her husband's family. But they were in the predicament because Congress couldn't come up with a bill they could agree on to prevent this from happening again. Add that to a long list of problems we have in the immigration system that Congress has once again punted to the future.

  5. H-1B EXHAUSTION TARGET - FEBRUARY 26, 2011

    by , 12-15-2010 at 09:21 AM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    Despite the fact that we're nearing the end of the H-1B quota for fiscal year 2010, we still have not seen the pickup in usage some have been predicting. Last week, 1200 cap numbers were claimed against the 65,000 main quota, a number that is largely consistent with what we've seen for months. The master's cap is likely to be exhausted before this month is out and the 400 or so cases we're seeing in that category will presumably shift to the main quota so that could shave a few weeks off the late February exhaustion date noted above.
