    1. COMMENT

    Immigration Reform In Sight

    The anti-immigration caucus in the House has suffered a massive
    defeat in this election, with the loss of over a dozen hardcore
    anti-immigration congressmen, and NumbersUSA, a staunchly anti-
    immigration organization, is saying that "Nearly everything
    about our cause got more difficult." Now the ball is squarely in
    the court of the new Democratic House leadership--will they
    press for comprehensive immigration reform? For a detailed
    survey of the impact of the immigration issue on various races
    in this election, see here.
    http://immigration2006.org/

    We welcome readers to share their opinion by writing to
