1. Comment: Taken For A Ride - Politico

reports that leading Hispanic organizers in battleground states

are seeing a startling drop-off in dollars spent on Hispanic

outreach efforts, while the Democratic National Committee claims

that it is pouring money into the efforts. We saw a largely

symbolic last minute effort by Senator Reid for DREAM just before

adjourning for the elections. Senator Menendez of the Hispanic

caucus suggests that the Senate will consider a CIR bill during

the lame duck session, Representive Velasquez of the Hispanic

caucus is campaigning on claims that there will be a vote on

DREAM during the lame duck. We are skeptical about these claims

from the Democratic leadership whose pattern of actions over the

last two years points to paying only lip service to the

immigration cause while taking Hispanic voters for granted.

Furthermore, the consensus among political analysts portends a

large Republican wave, sufficient to dislodge Speaker Pelosi and

much of the House Democratic leadership from power, even within

the Democratic caucus. We are betting that the current

Congressional Democratic leadership will offer the sweeping

election results as an excuse for postponing immigration to the

112th Congress, proving once again that their commitment to

immigration reform is less than whole-hearted.

  1. Helen S (Proud Army Wife)'s Avatar
    Hello, my name i's Helen S. I'm a proud military wife. My husband is currently stationed in korea. I think it's sad that any military wife should worry about getting deported. This is currently my situation. How can I support my soldier, when I worry about being deported? How can my soldier perform his duties as a soldier, when he worries about my safety? It's not
    fair. My son and I serve this country as well.
  2. Roger Algase's Avatar
    Helen S., there is something terribly, terribly wrong with our whole immigration system, and our politicians are utterly lacking in the courage to change it. If the people who are defending our country cannot rest assured that their immediate family members are safe from deportation, then who can?

    The same is true of the shocking Immigration "Court" system detailed in the Nation article cited by Matthew Kolkien in what, in accordance with ID's incomprehensible policy, was mistakenly called his article, but should properly have been called his news item in today's ID issue.

    I am sorry for misspelling Matthew Kolken's name in my last comment.
