Who's Writing Immigration "Reform"?

You will not be shocked:

When Sen. Kennedy (D-Mass.) declared last week that unnamed “stakeholders” would decide whether Congress overhauls immigration law this year, Latino organizations in Washington understood exactly what he meant.

After laboring in obscurity for decades, groups such as the National Council of La Raza, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, [MALDEF] and the National Immigration Forum are virtually being granted veto power over perhaps the biggest domestic issue coming before Congress this year. Organizations that represent what is now the nation's largest minority group are beginning to achieve power commensurate with their numbers.

Maybe with "their numbers," but not necessarily with their members' LEGAL STATUS.

Of course, if GWB can grant the President of Mexico a veto over national-security measures such as border-control fences, there's no reason that a United States Senator can't grant law-making responsibility to racists.
