NYT: "When migrants have no hope of visas, the Border Patrol’s job is made harder, and the drug lords get richer. The United States and Mexico, two friendly nations, sit side by side, with compatible labor markets, professing a commitment to economic justice and respect for human rights. But in Nogales, north and south of the fence, evidence of these things is scant."

"This may be the Republican end game – pass a series of narrow and popular bills out of the House, but ignore the pathway to citizenship entirely, leaving Senate Democrats with only bad options. Democrats could pass the small bills, but lose out on creating a pathway to citizenship, which would anger their base. Or they could block all immigration bills until the House passes “amnesty,” allowing Republicans to plausibly claim that Democrats are blocking reform, while also testing the strength of the pro-reform coalition."

Immigration reform brings together the sort of coalition that the Democratic party has long needed: big business money combined with real grassroots activism. If it can remain cohesive and motivated for another year, it could be the Democratic answer to the Tea Party. This is why Obama gives the issue so much attention, even while the chances for short-term success remain bleak. He's not holding immigration rallies so much as campaign rallies. The deportation issue distracts from that campaign. He's not holding immigration rallies so much as campaign rallies. His deportation record isn’t on-message with the campaign, so he’s evasive about it.

The new Visa Bulletin has big news: EB3 priority dates advanced a year for China, Mexico and Other, but EB2 India retrogressed 3.5 years due to a “dramatic increase in the level of applicant demand.”

Immigration can help keep entitlement programs solvent. And unlike cutting payments to retirees or raising the retirement age, allowing more people to immigrate to the U.S. is a good in its own right.

We have great Mexican food in Chicago, great Ethiopian food in Philadelphia, and apparently great Sichuan food in Cleveland. This diversity of dining options wouldn't exist without immigration.

After congress votes to avoid default and reopen the government, expect Obama to renew his push for immigration reform. http://ow.ly/pSF14
