Jan 10 - King Dethroned

Rating: 3 votes, 5.00 average.

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

January 10, 2011,0110.shtm


1. Comment: King Dethroned - The House GOP leadership decided

against offering the chairmanship of the House Immigration

Subcommittee to Steve King, a practitioner of over-the-top anti-

immigration rhetoric. Instead, the gavel went to Elton Gallegly,

who is equally anti-immigration, but who shuns the limelight and

operates quietly. In an interview with the National Journal,

Mr. King blamed Speaker Boehner for this turn of events, saying

"John Boehner isn't very aggressive on immigration" (note: Mr.

King was deprived of his subcommittee gavel before news broke

about the shooting of Rep. Giffords). We commend the House GOP

leadership for recognizing that tone matters and hope that

Republican leaders will seek to silence anti-immigration fanatics

within the GOP. This is yet another sign that the House

Republican majority will likely move on immigration legislation

in the 112th congress, with a bill with a mix of mandatory E-

Verify plus employment immigration benefits. Such a bill would

defuse criticism of Republicans as anti-immigration, and split

the Democrats, who are traditionally against business

immigration. DREAM might well be a sweetener offered with such a

bill, especially if the anti-immigration faction of the GOP

absolutely refuses to support the Republican leadership's

immigration bill, consequently creating the need for Democratic

votes, and therefore, of a sweetener. In any event, despite fears

that the status quo would reign on immigration, the 112th

Congress is off to a good start. We will be following Congress

closely, and will keep our readers informed on the latest

developments, stay tuned.
