1. Comment: St Patricks Day And Immigration - Today is St.

Patrick's Day. We take this opportunity to point out a fault line

in immigration politics. Historically, ethnic groups have lobbied

for immigration benefits for their own communities. Among the

most successful at this endeavor has been the Irish community.

This is not surprising because there are more people of Irish

origin in the US than in Ireland. The DV Lottery was initially

created to benefit the Irish community. A quick search of the

articles at the Irish Voice,

the major newspaper serving the Irish community shows that the

Irish community appear to believe that their immigration issues

can be addressed to the exclusion of the immigration issues of

other ethnic communities. This is by no means unique: a look at

the largely Indian community at shows a

narrow focus on EB3 quotas for India without a realization that

the logjam affects the entire permanent Employment based

immigration system in the US. While the pro-immigration forces'

efforts are thus fragmented, the anti-immigration efforts are

united against immigration as such giving them the political

advantage that we have seen in legislative battles in the last

decade. Such a narrow focus on sub-sections of immigration has

pros and cons. On the positive side, Congress likes to enact

narrow benefits when there is a sympathetic story to be told. On

the negative side, as the pro-immigration forces do not come

together on issues that will help all affected communities, there

is rarely a critical mass of support to get broad-based pro-

immigration legislation passed. Broad-based reform is necessary

to continue America's immigration tradition. Today we celebrate

Irish immigration as a part of this tradition.
