1. Comment: Call For DREAM - Democratic activists across the
country are banding together for the largest phone call campaign
in pro-immigration history. DailyKos, one of the most important
progressive websites has joined forces with the Service Employees
International Union, the most pro-immigration among the major
unions, to phone bank the Senate switchboard into a jammed state.
We believe this will be the first time ever that the pro-
immigration calls will out-number the anti-immigrationists. We
congratulate both DailyKos and SEIU on this outstanding
initiative and we urge our readers to participate, see here
for how.
Our reasoning for supporting DREAM is clear. We are for
immigration benefits, and DREAM will deliver (absent crippling
amendments) about 10% of the total benefits of CIR. So, think of
DREAM as a tenth of a CIR bill. Surely, with near-super-
majorities of Democrats in Congress, this is the least that the
immigrant community can reasonably expect. Now, onto the outlook
for passage. In the past, those Senators who wanted to weasel out
of supporting immigration benefits legislation have pointed to
the lop-sided numbers in phone calls for and against. The numbers
often cited by such nervous Senators were 1-to-40, 1-to-70, and
even 1-to-100 against the pro-side. For the first time, these
nervous nellies will have the kind of numbers they have demanded
from pro-immigration advocates; the better phone ratios will
provide political cover for YES votes on DREAM.
With grassroots pro-immigration supporters lighting up the phone-
lines across the country, the spotlight is now on the Democratic
leadership, especially President Obama and Majority Leader Reid
to ensure that there are no Democratic defections on DREAM. We
once again call on the Democratic leadership to ensure the
following Democrats vote YES on DREAM: Pryor, Landrieu,
McCaskill, Baucus, Tester, Hagan, Conrad, Johnson, Warner,
Goodwin, Nelson of Nebraska, Begich, Dorgan and Lincoln.  Senator
Lugar, the only Republican co-sponsor of DREAM, will likely
provide the critical 60th vote for cloture. This week's expected
passage of DREAM (unless sabotaged by recalcitrant Democrats)
will not be the end of the story (since no statute is possible
until the legislative process in both chambers is completed), but
DREAM would be off to a great start if the Democratic leadership
can keep all the Democrats in line.
This week's Senate votes on DREAM are critical for pro-
immigrationists. We urge all our readers to join this large and
historic pro-immigration phone effort.
