Senate Progress on Immigration Compromise

I got a very interesting mailing from the Democratic Party's National Immigration Forum and Dean's new outreach center, the American Majority Partnership, the other day. I reproduce it here entirely. It outlines the amendments to the Senate compromise that have been offered, those under consideration, and those likely to be considered in the near future.

Chairman Dean has made our position on immigration reform clear: We support comprehensive immigration reform that strengthens our borders, protects U.S. workers and their wages, reunites families, and allows those who pay taxes and obey the law to earn the opportunity to apply for the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.

These are the right policies and the right values. Democrats may not be polling with a majorities on every single issue we support on immigration, but we are standing for what's right and principled, and that is more important to building an enduring consensus of principle, than to tack with every gust of the political winds.
