1. Comment: A Charade - In a charade designed to pull the wool


over the eyes of those who care about immigrants, the current


Democratic leadership has called many meetings in Washington DC


this week and next. The cynical architects of this strategy


measure their success in TV airtime and the ballot box in


November, not in votes cast by members of Congress when in


legislative session. From President Obama, Speaker Pelosi,


Majority Leader Reid and onwards down the ranks of the Democratic


leadership, the message is that they will push for enacting DREAM


and will introduce a CIR bill. We would call the introduction of


a CIR bill in the Senate on the last day of the 111th Congress a


sick joke on immigrants, were it not so sad for the millions


suffering in silence. The Democratic leadership intends to fool


the folks watching on Univision into seeing some light at the end


of the tunnel. The Democratic leadership is joined in this coldly


calculated vote-catching ploy by a host of supposedly pro-


immigrant advocates, in DC and across the country.


President Obama intends to blame the Republicans for the


inevitable legislative failure of all these much-ballyhooed


initiatives, he said as much in a recent report in The Hill: "


http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/119125-obama-pledges-not-to-walk-away-from-immigration-reform

Without the kind of bipartisan effort we had just a few short


years ago, we can't get these reforms across the finish line. But


their leadership has made reaching 60 votes the norm for nearly


everything the Senate has to do... And the American people's


business is on hold because, simply put, the other party's


platform has been 'no.'" Let us take Mr. Obama at his word. Let


us hold him responsible for not a single Republican vote, but


only for all Democratic "No" votes on DREAM. We invite the


President to persuade the following Democratic Senators to vote


YES on DREAM: Pryor, Landrieu, McCaskill, Baucus, Tester, Hagan,


Conrad, Johnson, Warner, Goodwin, Nelson of Nebraska, Begich,


Dorgan and Lincoln. The number of Democratic NOs on DREAM (in


addition to those who weasel out by voting "present" or remaining


absent for the vote) is the acid test of whether the Democratic


leadership is in earnest or is simply pretending to do something


to lock in the immigrant vote to stymie the inevitable losses


less than 7 weeks away. While TV continues to be important in


influencing votes, the internet has made it harder for the old


political games of fooling the electorate to be played quite as


blithely as before. The votes, or lack thereof, on the Senate


floor will tell the real score soon enough. Immigration Daily


will keep you on top of the (in)action.
