  2. Aug 28 - Evolving Demographics and National Elections

    Comment: Evolving Demographics and National Elections - The Huffington Post suggests that GOP's immigration stance is placing presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney and indeed the party as a whole in an increasingly precarious position. Demographic trends in ethnic diversity and population age on both national and local levels suggest this. In 2004, George W. Bush was able to win Florida, largely because he captured 44% of the Latino vote nationally. In 2008, the state was won by Obama. For Romney to have any viable chance of occupying the White House, he will need to take back Florida as well as at least some other increasingly Latino states, like Colorado, New Mexico, and Nevada. Romney and the party are making few friends in Latino communities across the country. Deferred Action has further put Romney in a pickle - he cannot support it without angering his base nor denounce it and push the Latino community further away. While Romney has shown no willingness or ability to effectively court the Latino vote, the GOP will eventually have to learn that it must either coalesce on issues like immigration or simply be run out of Washington. Immigration could also be a tool to help an economy that has been more difficult to get on track than either party anticipated. Perhaps the whole situation was best summed up by the CRS last year: "Immigration issues and potential reform have broad implications for a number of policy areas. Immigration may stimulate the economy by providing both low and high skilled workers. Pursuing an immigration strategy that favors workers entering for employment reasons may also slow U.S. population aging thus averting or delaying a number of the policy challenges that could arise from population aging." Share your thoughts on how the nation's changing demographics will shape this year's election and immigration policy going forward at editor@ilw.com and see the Huffington Post article here and the CRS report on demographics at page 28 is quoted above.

    Immigration Daily







    August 27, 2012



















    Comment: Party Line On Immigration - As the GOP convention draws near, the immigration plank of the party's platform is beginning to crystalize. If the GOP takes certain key elections, the party's platform could translate into our national immigration policy, which, in light of what is being proposed, is disconcerting, albeit unsurprising. The plank will feature the predominantly hard line - and completely unrealistic - policies championed by GOP candidates in recent month. The party has grown disturbingly radical in its rhetoric. The plank is likely to include an expanded foreign guest worker program, which sounds conciliatory at first, but was surely included to be attractive to the big businesses who crave new sources of cheap labor. Further, the plank is likely to also include plans complete a border fence along the U.S.-Mexico line, a wholesale end to allow undocumented students to pay in-state tuition at universities regardless of state policies, a ban on policies that help create sanctuary cites, and the mandatory use of e-verify. "In our party it has become a third rail political issue," said Brad Bailey, a Texas Republican with some moderate views on immigration, "[t]he rhetoric around immigration has just grown so intense that people are plain afraid to talk about it." While Bailey deserves credit for not toeing the party's hard line, his statement is not correct. Republicans have been happy to talk about immigration - what they have been unwilling to do is engage in any meaningful, legitimate debate about it. It is not working, and now we are seeing the tangible effects of that. Recall that this is a time when federal courts are telling the right "you've gone too far" time and time again. First, there was the initial series of decisions that largely dismantled the legislation passed in Arizona. In last Thursday's Immigration Daily, we carried three separate 11th Circuit decisions that all reached the same conclusion: immigration laws passed by Republican majorities in Alabama and Georgia improperly circumvented the federal government's role in setting immigration policy.

    The GOP is moving further right at a time when it should be moving to the center, an area from which the Democrats are also scurrying away. The GOP has been this far from the status quo twice in its history - when Barry Goldwater ran on a platform of drastic economic and social program roll-backs and when Ronald Reagan sought to capitalize on the malaise felt by many Americans after a largely ineffective Carter administration. The difference was that Reagan showed a willingness to compromise on many issues and even concede a few while working towards attaining larger, more generalized success. Goldwater showed no such willingness and lost in what was, at the time, the biggest electoral college landslide in history. Will one of these fates befall the GOP in November? With immigration and other platform planks that will be so far out of sync with those of most Americans, does the GOP stand a chance to take the White House and other key offices in November? Share your thoughts with us at editor@ilw.com and continue reading here for more information about the immigration plank of the GOP platform.
