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: "

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.
