ITEMS


1. Comment: Hot Air - Yesterday's State of the Union address by


President Obama contained 144 words on immigration. By contrast,


his first SOTU address had 37 words. There is good reason to


believe that all the words, whether 37 or 144, are just hot air.


Firstly, the Republicans in Congress are unlikely to work with


Mr. Obama on immigration.

Secondly, Democrats no longer enjoy a majority in the House.


Thirdly, it is an open question whether Mr. Obama actually wants


to help immigrants, the Obama administration continues to deport


immigrants in record numbers, which is undistinguishable from the


"enforcement-first" philosophy espoused by the GOP.


During his SOTU address, Mr. Obama said:


"Today, there are hundreds of thousands of students


excelling in our schools who are not American citizens. Some are


the children of undocumented workers, who had nothing to do with


the actions of their parents. They grew up as Americans and


pledge allegiance to our flag, and yet live every day with the


threat of deportation."


If Mr. Obama actually means any of the words above, he can start


by offering a TPS-like status to all DREAM beneficiaries. This


action is entirely within Mr. Obama's unfettered Executive


discretion, and requires no Congressional action whatsoever. As


far as immigrant advocates are concerned, Mr.Obama's actions will


speak louder than his words.
