1/1/07: Getting Ready for  the 110th Congress-An Analysis 
National Immigration  Forum 
The 109th Congress concluded with no further mischief created on  immigration 
policy. In fact, the Congress did not even complete the  minimum work for 
which they are responsible-passing the government's  budget-instead funding most 
of the government in a "continuing resolution"  until February 15, 2007, and 
handing off the responsibility to the 110th  Congress. 
Since the election, Members of Congress have been busy re-organizing  
themselves. While the details of who will chair the subcommittees are  still being 
finalized, the broad-stroke picture is that immigration  restrictionists will be 
in a weaker position in the 110th Congress. The  hard-line restrictionists 
who were in a position to block immigration  reform-in the House in 
particular-have either been booted out of office  or, by virtue of the Republicans' loss 
of control of the House and thus of  the Committees, have been demoted.  
While the opponents of comprehensive reform have been demoted, it is  still, 
basically, a 50-50 Congress representing a 50-50 country.  Comprehensive 
immigration reform will not come easily. Any sound  immigration legislation that 
might pass must have bi-partisan support.  Republican divisions on immigration 
have been much in the news until now  because Republicans held the reigns of 
power. Now that the Democrats are  in charge, divisions in their ranks will come 
under the magnifying glass.  To pass comprehensive reform, the Democratic 
leadership will need  Republican votes. As with just about any issue, any 
legislation that  stands a chance of enactment will require compromise. 
Still, there is a window of opportunity for comprehensive reform. Both  the 
House and Senate leadership (as well as the President) are now talking  about 
comprehensive immigration reform being a priority. If actually  treated as a 
priority, there could be action prior to the time, later in  the year, when 
Presidential politics complicates the immigration debate.  >> _Read  More_
