Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

ANTIS IN CONGRESS SUFFER HUGE LOSSES

Rate this Entry

10 of 13 incumbent Republicans who lost seats last week were members of the notoriously anti-immigrant Immigration Reform Caucus.

In 19 or 21 House races where immigration was a major issue, the more pro-immigration candidate won.

In the Senate, 5 pros beat 5 antis in races where immigration was an issue.



America's Voice has produced a great overview.

    Republican failed to learn the lesson from California when Pete Wilson tried the so called proposition 187 and turned California into a Blue State for many years now and plenty more to come. I guess history repeats itself sometimes. Its funny to watch the self analysis from the republicans on TV shows these days you can tell by their comments that they are in complete denial, they are angry and they lack a sense of direction for their party and that will hardly inspire confidence from voters.

    Alaska started counting the absentee ballots today. Below is an update on the Senate race:

    I believe that the cause of CIR is advanced with a more Democratic Senate. Hence my posts on the Alaska race.

    Stevens is now behind by 814 votes:

    Below is notice concerning the schedule the State of Alaska intends to follow:

    I need not repeat this, but I will. GOP has more common values with minorities than with whites. However, as long as they pander to the white skin worshipping pagan crowd, minorities will run away from them.

    I agree in general that Democrats are more likely to support pro-immigration policies, but Stevens record has not been that bad on immigration. So I'm not sure the balance of power shifts that much with Begich in and Stevens out. Of course, Stevens was out anyway so the question is what the views of the GOP member who might replace him. Palin seems to be surprisingly moderate...

    "I agree in general that Democrats are more likely to support pro-immigration policies, but Stevens record has not been that bad on immigration."

    Again, I find myself in agreement with you. However, if the Ds could get to 60 (unlikely) they have the option of "whipping" a vote (to end a filibuster). Of course, in the Senate this is not as effective as a three line whip issued in the House of Commons.

    It is a pity that the GOP has become such an extreme party. The Rockefeller Republicans have simply ceased to exist and folks like me, who agree more with the Rs than the Ds are unable to support the Rs because of their pandering to a certain part of their base.

    Immigrants are part of the engine for growth as revealed by this article. Lazy americans are waiting for results, whereas, inspired immigrants are 'causing' postiive outcomes in their lives!

    A great article and needs some more awareness....

    As I had said above...

    ..they have not learnt much. Romney's idea of throwing illegals out will also drive out the legals and even citizen Hispanics and make the housing crisis even worse!
