According to an aticle on  “Mexico’s ambassador to the United States said Friday he expects immigration reform is unlikely to pass in that country in 2010 because of unemployment and midterm elections.”

I believe this prediction may be accurate.  Do we need immigration reform?  Absolutely, as our current system is badly broken.  The timing however, may not be ideal for democrats given the upcoming mid-term elections.  On the other hand, if the party loses its super-majority in the Senate and some House seats to Republicans in November, passing CIR could prove to be an even more ambitious task than it would be now.
