Comment: Promises Kept Or Broken - The 111th Congress begins its lame duck session on November 15th. The major item on the agenda will be what to do with President Bush’s tax cuts which are set to expire on December 31, 2010. This election was a major boost to the Republicans and it will affect the tone of this session. There are two immigration items on the agenda. Just before the election, Sen. Menendez promised that he would bring Comprehensive Immigration Reform to the floor during this session, and Sen. Reid made a firm promise of a floor vote on DREAM. Sen. Reid won a convincing victory over his rival due to the staunch support of Latino voters in Nevada. Many activists for DREAM worked hard for Sen. Reid’s campaign helping him cinch his victory. We urge Majority Leader Reid to keep his promise for a floor vote for DREAM during the upcoming session. The country is watching to see if the two Democratic Senators will keep their promises.
