Comment: Democratic Leadership Change - CQ Politics points out that almost all the members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus have held back their dues to Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

"Others said they are frustrated with the lack of progress on comprehensive immigration reform. Those Members said they don't want their campaign dollars funding Democrats who have blocked progress on an overhaul. "I want to make sure that the money goes where I think it's most appropriate, to individuals who are very supportive," said Rep. Joe Baca (Calif.), who chaired the CHC in 2007-08. Baca said he wanted to ensure his money went directly to those candidates and incumbents who support comprehensive reform."
The current Democratic leadership has taken the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (and the entire pro-immigration movement) for granted, and has paid lip-service to their priorities while blocking them in action. The November election is an opportunity for changing the Democratic Congressional leadership so that it is true to the cause of immigration reform once more.
