ITEMS

1. Comment: Promises Kept Or Broken - The 111th Congress begins
its lame duck session on November 15th. The major item on the
agenda will be what to do with President Bush's tax cuts which
are set to expire on December 31, 2010. This election was a major
boost to the Republicans and it will affect the tone of this
session. There are two immigration items on the agenda. Just
before the election, Sen. Menendez promised that he would bring
Comprehensive Immigration Reform to the floor during this
session, and Sen. Reid made a firm promise of a floor vote on
DREAM. Sen. Reid won a convincing victory over his rival due to
the staunch support of Latino voters in Nevada. Many activists
for DREAM worked hard for Sen. Reid's campaign helping him cinch
his victory. We urge Majority Leader Reid to keep his promise for
a floor vote for DREAM during the upcoming session. The country
is watching to see if the two Democratic Senators will keep their
promises.

    TEXAS WEIGHS AZ-STYLE IMMIGRATION LAWS

    As if Arizona's SB1070 was not controversial enough, Texas lawmakers have submitted a number of state bills intended to crack down on illegal immigration in the state. Will Texas' bills face greater success than Arizona's due to the GOP's momentum coming off last week's Congressional wins?
