Comment: Taken For A Ride - Politico reports that leading Hispanic organizers in battleground states are seeing a startling drop-off in dollars spent on Hispanic outreach efforts, while the Democratic National Committee claims that it is pouring money into the efforts. We saw a largely symbolic last minute effort by Senator Reid for DREAM just before adjourning for the elections. Senator Menendez of the Hispanic caucus suggests that the Senate will consider a CIR bill during the lame duck session, Representive Velasquez of the Hispanic caucus is campaigning on claims that there will be a vote on DREAM during the lame duck. We are skeptical about these claims from the Democratic leadership whose pattern of actions over the last two years points to paying only lip service to the immigration cause while taking Hispanic voters for granted. Furthermore, the consensus among political analysts portends a large Republican wave, sufficient to dislodge Speaker Pelosi and much of the House Democratic leadership from power, even within the Democratic caucus. We are betting that the current Congressional Democratic leadership will offer the sweeping election results as an excuse for postponing immigration to the 112th Congress, proving once again that their commitment to immigration reform is less than whole-hearted.
