Today, the House Judiciary Committee meets for a hearing that will discuss the KIDS Act, a DREAM Act-lite proposal that some Republicans are considering taking up instead of immigration reform for the 11 million.  As Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-CA) recently said, “We’ve been there, we’ve done that, that’s so yesterday.  [That’s] last century’s conversation on immigration.”

Some of the prominent House Republicans at tomorrow’s hearing were among the leading opponents of the DREAM Act when the House passed it in 2010, with all but 8 Republicans voting against it. Some of them still oppose any relief for DREAMers.  Other Republicans have evolved on the issue, but they still have some explaining to do.  Do they agree with the outrageous comments from King and others below?  And will they support a path to citizenship for all immigrants?

According to relatives, the musicians of “The Devastating Imperial Band ” and the “People’s Tremendous”, originating from the colonies of Zacatepec and Santa Maria Aztahuacán, Iztapalapa. The performers left around six o’clock on a bus that had been sent by the person who hired them.

One of the conditions put in place by the contractor was that the two bands travel in one bus to the town of Tlaxcala. One of the relatives noted that one of the musicians who escaped talked to his mother and said, “ I do not know where we are -if we were inTlaxcala”. At that time the line went dead and the woman dialed back, but no one answered. Upon learning of the disappearance of their family members, a family commission went to Tlaxcala, hoping to find them.

“All I Tlaxcala know is that the people arrived a few hours ago and no one knows of the bands. We do not know what to do or where to look, “said the father of one of the musicians, all aged between 15 and 40 years old.
