DREAM Is Bellwether

According to a CQ.com news story, Sen. Menendez was quoted as saying that tomorrow's DREAM vote will serve as a litmus test on whether there will be any other significant benefits measure this year. "If we can't make progress with children, I don't know how the business community gets AgJobs". The DREAM vote is significant because it is a bellwether for the passage of all other pending immigration bills (including SKIL which surprisingly appears to be in play at this time). The anti-immigrationists are keenly aware of the significance of DREAM and have marshalled their resources to inundate Senate offices with calls or faxes expressing opposition to DREAM. Supporters of DREAM have also ramped up efforts and have begun placing calls and faxes to Senators - we commend the effort and encourage pro-immigration advocates to continue campaigning for Tuesday evening and early Wednesday, for contact information to Senate offices, see here (please call and/or fax, emails are not effective at this time).

We welcome readers to share their opinion and ideas with us by writing to editor@ilw.com.

Dear Editor:
It fills me with joy to hear that immigration lawyers are getting out of the business (see 10/23/07 ID). Using laws to help illegal aliens is another reason for so much discord in this country. Less litigation will help to reduce the work load, and better accommodate legal immigration.
