ITEMS



1. Comment: Money And Politics - The 2011 budget is not yet

complete. President Obama has invited Speaker Boehner and

Majority Leader Reid to continue to meet and finalize the budget.

Looking at the likely effect of the budget impasse on immigration

issues, our readers should bear in mind that consular processing

was entirely halted the last time the government shut down over

the budget in the mid-90s. Once consular processing resumes,

delays will persist for some time. A similar situation is

possible with PERM as well. Even if the 2011 budget is agreed to,

the 2012 budget is still an open question, due to the ballooning

deficits and the different approaches of the two political

parties to the same. The budget battle reminds us that money is

the mother's milk of politics.
