1. Comment: Immigration in the 112th Congress - Busy coping with

the recessionary immigration environment, most immigration

attorneys have paid little heed to the next Congress (due to be

elected in 7 weeks!), and what it may portend for their practice.

Many recent polls, extensively covered in the general press,

point to a huge Republican wave, likely leading to a switch in

party control in the House, and greatly reducing the Democratic

majority in the Senate. Should this scenario pan out, and the

smart money is betting that it will, numerous effects affecting

the immigration bar will surely result. Here are some highlights

of what to expect. First, forget about any talk of legalization

or even a temporary worker program. Both the business side and

the family side of the immigration benefits lobby will come up

with empty hands in the new Congress. It is likely that, like the

year McCain Kennedy cleared the Senate, the expected Republican

House will refuse to vote for any benefits at all. Second, strong

enforcement legislation is likely to pass Congress. We believe

that something similar to the Shuler bill will become law in the

112th Congress (in other words we should expect CIR without any

benefits, but with all the enforcement). Third, there is likely

to be some cutback in immigration benefits. At a minimum, we

expect that there will be discussion in the House about an

immigration moratorium (stopping immigration cold for a few

years, bringing back memories of 1921). The Executive Branch,

facing fiery and effective opposition from a Republican Congress,

and focused on the 2012 elections, will likely not have the

stomach for any pro-benefits reform. Forced on to the defensive,

it is entirely possible that the Administration may ratchet up

enforcement (interior and border) even further.

Here's what this means for immigration law firms: Compliance

business will likely sky-rocket, with the expected crack-down on

employers consequent to new enforcement legislation. Both

employment-immigration and family-immigration based practices are

likely to experience slow downs. Removal business will likely be

steady. Two caveats: (a) The above predictions are admittedly a

little far away, since they would be subsequent to new

enforcement legislation; (b) It must be borne in mind that there

are 2 macro factors affecting immigration lawyers' business - one

is the overall legislative/executive framework, and two is the

proportion of immigrants/employers who seek counsel, our analysis

above does not discuss the second factor.

For many years, immigration lawyers and advocates have become

accustomed to a generally pro-immigration rhetoric in Washington

DC. This was true even though votes on the floors of Congress did

not always match the rhetoric, and even though 9/11 and its

aftermath poisoned the atmosphere. What we are likely to see

within a few more weeks, is a completely different rhetoric -

that of 1994 and 1995, the very same rhetoric that led to AEDPA,

IIRAIRA, and the first federal budget differentiation between

USCs and LPRs (taken for granted today, but revolutionary at the

time). The racists are getting ready to take over the national

conversation on immigration. America's immigration saga

continues, stay tuned.
