Comprehensive Immigration Law Not Likely Before 2011, but Other Changes Expected

Thursday, November 20, 2008                     
BNA DAILY REPORT FOR EXECUTIVES

Comprehensive immigration legislation is unlikely to pass before 2011, but changes in immigration policy are expected soon after President-elect Obama takes office, speakers said at a Nov. 19 forum sponsored by Cornell Law School.

Doris Meissner, senior fellow at the Migration Policy Institute and former commissioner of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, said the presidential election provided Obama with a "mandate to take action and make changes," including immigration reforms.

For the past eight years, the Bush administration has set out general principles for immigration legislation and waited for Congress to take action, Meissner said. An Obama administration will be different, she said.

Obama's administration will lead an immigration legislation effort by developing solutions and vetting ideas, Meissner said.
Due to the current state of the economy, when comprehensive legislation is adopted it is unlikely the bill will include increased levels of temporary worker visas, according to Meissner, Frank Sharry, executive director of America's Voice, an immigrant rights organization, and Jeanne Butterfield, executive director of the American Immigration Lawyers Association.

According to the speakers, an immigration bill may be introduced in the fall of 2009, but if it does not pass it is extremely unlikely immigration will be addressed during the 2010 election year. At that point, comprehensive immigration legislation will likely be taken up again in 2011.

In the meantime, Obama is expected to set the tone of the immigration debate, curtail worksite enforcement raids, and step up the Labor Department's enforcement of worker protections.

americas.irc-online.org Editor's note: This is the third article in a three-part series on the post-election debate on immigration reform. The first part is Both Sides of Immigration Debate Retrench, the second is Identity Politics and the Latino Payback on Immigration.

While pro-immigration groups are hailing the Obama victory and the Latino turnout as a victory for liberal immigration reform, immigration restrictionists are reshaping their messaging for the Obama era. Although not thrilled with the prospect of an Obama presidency, the restrictionists don't necessarily fear it. Some, including NumbersUSA and the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), already are trying to leverage Obama's promises to protect workers and create jobs.

Given how successfully the restrictionist institutes in Washington have tweaked their anti-immigration message in the Bush era to reflect new citizen concerns about national security and the "rule of law," it would behoove immigrant advocates and other supporters of comprehensive immigration reform to pay more attention to what the leading restrictionists are now saying.

During the campaign the anti-immigration groups despaired over the prospect of either McCain or Obama. But now the two leading restrictionist policy institutes, NumbersUSA and the Federation for American Immigration Reform, point encouragingly to Obama's strong positions in favor of employee verification and employer enforcement.

They have also been confident that the aggressive enforcement regime instituted by Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff will persist into the next administration, especially given the way that many Democratic congressional representatives have supported increases in the department's immigration-enforcement and border-control budget.....
