1. Comment: DREAM Procedure - To the best of our understanding,
here is the procedure currently being followed for DREAM. There
will be a cloture vote on S. 3455, the DoD Authorization Act on
Tuesday, the 21st  of September. If the Majority Party succeeds
in invoking cloture, S. 729, the DREAM bill, will be offered as
an amendment. Sen. McCain, among others, has objected strongly to
this procedure, since the Minority Party has not so far been
permitted to offer its amendments to the underlying bill, while
the Majority Party has not only scheduled a vote on DREAM, but
also on "Don't Ask Don't Tell", and other election-time
amendments. It is possible that the two parties will compromise
on the procedure, and that a more convoluted process might thus
result (including permitting another DREAM amendment with fewer
benefits instead of S. 729). Compromise or no, given the strong
disagreements on display on the Senate floor in the 111th
Congress, several cloture votes are likely before the bill clears
the Senate. Even should the Majority Party prevail through all of
this, it must be borne in mind that the travails of DREAM would
have just begun. That's because the Senate is not considering
H.R. 5822, the House version of the bill, and because these are
appropriations bills, the House cannot, even if it wanted to,
acquiesce in S. 3455 (as amended). Instead, the action will then
move to conference. This spells great peril for DREAM, here's
why. Once conference is sought on DoD Appropriations, the
conference committee may not issue its final report until after
the election, and the vote on the conference report may happen in
a lame duck session.
Furthermore, the conference committee may well choose to strip
DREAM from the final report. The excuse that would undoubtedly be
then given is that there are insufficient votes on the House
floor for DREAM. If the Democrats have by then lost their
majority for the 112th House in November, the excuse might even
be true. This is because, should the Democrats insist on DREAM's
inclusion at that time, the by-then-newly-emboldened Republicans
may be in no room for compromise, and may offer only to agree to
a continuing resolution to tide matters over until the 112th
Congress convenes, and may repeatedly filibuster the lame duck
session's business. If the Republicans have just received a fresh
mandate from the people, it may be foolish for the Democrats to
resist the Republicans too much at that stage. All of the
foregoing procedure (incorporating policy) is just Politics 101
inside the Beltway, now for the Machiavellian touch. It is
possible that the Democratic leadership is deliberately setting
DREAM up for failure, either on a cloture vote, or through a
stab-in-the-back in conference. There are three advantages to the
Democratic leadership in such Machiavellian maneuvering: (a) the
Democratic leadership gets to posture as pro-immigrant just prior
to the election, thus providing the flimsy substance for the
propaganda that their concern for immigrants' issues extends
beyond votes for Democrats (b) should the Univision viewership be
skeptical in buying the claim that the Democrats are the
immigrants' friends, the Democratic leadership gets a second bite
at the apple by repeatedly using video clips of Republicans
denouncing DREAM on the Senate floor (this has already begun,
Republican Senators Hatch and Bennett of Utah, previous DREAM
supporters, now oppose DREAM) in ads on Spanish language TV
stations in the build-up to November - the strategy here being
that the enemy of your enemy is your friend, the conclusion
hammered to immigrants being: vote Democratic (c) even should
DREAM survive a cloture vote now, the Democratic leadership gets
to conveniently kill DREAM just after the election, thus keeping
a large, million-strong constituency hungry and angry, ready to
serve as Democratic pawns in the next election in 2012.
