    If he can produce the republican votes in the house and Senate his value as a deal maker will increase 10 fold. This will be only a down payment for the republicans to start undoing the damage they have caused to themselves with Hispanics. I do no think it will help Romney or the repuks on 2012 but if they can wrap their minds around doing Immigration reform to win Hispanics back they will be able to compete for the voting block on the issues of taxing and the social stuff...

    A non-immigrant visa with unlimited extentions and no path to become a permanent resident? Dream? Nightmare? Eternal purgatory?

    Its better than living the "shadows". I will take it if I were in the situation some of these kids/adults are in.

    My only question is if USCIS is ready for the deluge of these applications? USCIS processing will come to a grinding halt with these millions of applications.

    USCIS never thinks it is inefficient.We all know that, USCIS is the most inefficient federal agency.

    When these people talk of non immigrant visas, Do these people ever have to go to a consulate abroad to get a VISA stamped in their passports? I dont think these folks will have any interest in taking such a route along with other non immigrants.

    Is Mr. Rubio proposing visa stamping in the passports by USCIS ? Is USCIS going to issue a free EAD/AP for these folks? Are these folks going to pay same expensive fees for EADS and travel documents? I would love to see how Mr. Rubio is going to make it "fair" along with other non immigrants. The whole fairness argument is a non starter for CHC and for all practical purposes this fairness argument is a talking point to stop immigration bills from advancing.

    DREAM VISA will have unlimited extensions along with unlimited numbers . Try selling that to your party Mr. Rubio.

    @Sa: It is about status. The general public doesn't know the difference between visa and status.
    This strikes me like something like the E1/E2 visa/status. Unlimited extensions, but no path to LPR.

    No, they are eligible to file for GC using the existing process after the initial period.

    DREAM VISA is likely to ignite HR3012/S1983 again. It will be difficult to justify country wide quotas based on current backlog and future backlog with DREAM. No more country wide quotas, first come first served.

    @gg: E1/E2 do not allow immigration intent.
    From Greg's webpage about E1/E2, http://www.visalaw.com/11sep1/2sep111.html
    "The letter must contain a statement of unequivocal intent that the applicant will depart the U.S. when E-1 status ends."
    "The letter should contain a statement of unequivocal intent that the applicant will depart the U.S. when E-2 status ends."

    Gregory Siskind, a founding member of immigration firm Siskind Susser in Memphis, Tenn., hates (his word) the argument that immigrants don't want to assimilate. "In the early 1900s, it was an almost completely open immigration system," he says. "The hardest part of coming into Ellis Island was affording a ticket. All you had to do was list on the ship form that you had someone you were meeting in the United States and have a little money in your pocket."

    Siskind also maintains that opposition to immigration has a long tradition in the U.S. "Pick up a newspaper from 100 years ago," he says. "You think anti-immigration groups are active today? They were much more incensed then about all the Yiddish and Italian languages they heard. There's nothing new about what we're arguing today."

    @Joef - with dream visa dreamers can file for gc . it is not similar to e1/e2

    I've said before that I think the Rubio concept is worth considering as it represents an improvement over the current system and since comprehensive reform is not possible for the foreseeable future, we need to focus on the possible rather than the ideal. I think the E-1/E-2 comparison is apt in terms of renewability of the visa, but the statement that E visa holders cannot get green cards is not correct. They can apply in categories in which they qualify. Many E visa holders are employed and can pursue labor certifications. Owners can sometimes qualify for EB-5 investor green cards.

    GOP fumbles Hispanic outreach

    Hoping to explain their plans to win over the country's 12 million Hispanic voters, Republicans instead muddied their message on the sensitive subject of immigration.

    I agree with Greg politics is the art of the possible and this bill may have a chance to pass and help some immigrants. If is fair or not to others is a different question, right now you have to get what you can out of this do nothing congress.

    If Democrats really dont like the bill , All they have to do is to ask Obama to praise Rubio and support this bill openly from the briefing room or rose garden, It will be DOA in the house and senate.
