What Will the Fallout Be of the Failure of Immigration Reform 2007?

Bill Hing has a posted a number of posts of the reactions of immigrant rights, unions, and other groups to the demise of immigration reform.  The N.Y. Times (here) has an article about the views of immigrants and others to the latest inaction on immigration. The question now is "what next?"  AP speculates (here) that we may see a series of piecemeal immigration reform proposals in Congress, such as the DREAM Act, AgJobs, or increased border enforcement measures. CQPolitics.com (here) wonders whether the Senate Republicans' stance on immigration reform will injure Republicans's standing with Latinos in the 2008 Presidential elections.  It seems pretty clear that the defeat of immigration reform will not help the Reps attract the Latino vote.

What do our readers think?
