Although it seems that interest in the issue has died down considerably except of course for those who are ditrectly affected, both Senators Obama and McCain spoke at the National Council of La Raza conference and both expressed their support for CIR.

According to an article on  “Speaking at the National Council of La Raza conference today, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) engaged in a lively give-and-take with several Latino activists who questioned his stance on illegal immigration.”

The constitution of Congress will be the deciding factor as to whether CIR occurs.  It is clear that either man, if he were President, would sign a CIR bill that provided a pathway to citzenship for the millions of undocumented aliens residing in the US.
