1. Comment: St Patricks Day And Immigration - Today is St.


Patrick's Day. We take this opportunity to point out a fault line


in immigration politics. Historically, ethnic groups have lobbied


for immigration benefits for their own communities. Among the


most successful at this endeavor has been the Irish community.


This is not surprising because there are more people of Irish


origin in the US than in Ireland. The DV Lottery was initially


created to benefit the Irish community. A quick search of the


articles at the Irish Voice,



 


http://www.irishcentral.com/search/?sa.x=0&sa.y=0&sa=Search&q=immigration&cx=003525804197122706794%3A0duzvwmd3dw&cof=FORID%3A11&ie=UTF-8&siteurl=www.irishcentral.com%2FIrishVoice%2F#1048

the major newspaper serving the Irish community shows that the


Irish community appear to believe that their immigration issues


can be addressed to the exclusion of the immigration issues of


other ethnic communities. This is by no means unique: a look at


the largely Indian community at ImmigrationVoice.org shows a


narrow focus on EB3 quotas for India without a realization that


the logjam affects the entire permanent Employment based


immigration system in the US. While the pro-immigration forces'


efforts are thus fragmented, the anti-immigration efforts are


united against immigration as such giving them the political


advantage that we have seen in legislative battles in the last


decade. Such a narrow focus on sub-sections of immigration has


pros and cons. On the positive side, Congress likes to enact


narrow benefits when there is a sympathetic story to be told. On


the negative side, as the pro-immigration forces do not come


together on issues that will help all affected communities, there


is rarely a critical mass of support to get broad-based pro-


immigration legislation passed. Broad-based reform is necessary


to continue America's immigration tradition. Today we celebrate


Irish immigration as a part of this tradition.
