Republican congressional majority in Congress likely to take on immigration reform

November 3, 2010 § 2 Comments

To be successful, their proposal must balance three requirements. It must satisfy the labor needs of its constituents in the agricultural, construction, meat processing and service sectors. It must eliminate the alleged threat immigrants pose to the status of English as the national language and to other elements of American identity. It must also avoid policies likely to result in the continued exploitation of immigrant workers, which would mobilize unions, Hispanics, civil libertarians and others to pressure key members of Congress to block any reform. This can be accomplished by enacting the following reforms, which will supplement (but not substitute for) current immigration regulations.
Immigrants admitted under the new provisions must be at least 18 years old, and the number allowed to enter should depend primarily on labor needs. This will reduce immigrant flow, which will in turn diminish demands for bilingual social services, including bilingual education that must be made available for children. Thus, this reform reduces the number of immigrants allowed to enter the country and the impact they will have on the nation’s culture. (it’s a free blog)

    Harlan,

    We would welcome any action on Immigration reform. We had been in this same mode for many years now. But considering the many conflicting interests this would ignite, what are the probable chances of IR succeeding now that the GOP is in charge of Congress? Do you have any inside information re this subject?

    Harry Reid has already said that he wishes to get the DREAM Act done next year. We shall see.
