Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

"TODAY WE MARCH, TOMORROW WE VOTE"

Rate this Entry

Remember those words chanted during the immigration protests in 2006? I'm sure a few people will regret ignoring that warning given reports that are popping up on voter registration efforts in immigrant communities. Nearly one million Latino immigrants have naturalized since the summer of 1986. And that doesn't tell us what the number of naturalizations are in other communities. One group alone, the We Are America Alliance, reports registering more than 500,000 new citizens to vote. The group now is focusing on getting those newly registered citizens to actually vote.



By the way, I voted today. If you can vote early, consider doing it. I waited for an hour and a half and early voting lines are usually shorter than on Election Day. So I'm guessing the Election Day lines are going to be extremely long this year.

    May be these new voters bring down the likes of Dana Rohrbacher and John Shaddegg. Hope many in the House Immigration Reform Caucus loose their seats and the racists Kirkorian and Steyn are left spinning stories on November 5 morning after the biggest GOP catastrophe since at least 1964!

    Dana Rohrabacher actually seems to have really bad numbers. He is not running in my district, but the one next town, but I've been following that race a bit. His opponent, Debbie Cook, seems to have a really good chance to unseat him. The local blogs say its a statistical dead heat.
    Let's keep our fingers crossed.

    I did absentee voting by mail. I also have heard that the lines for early voting were unusually long here in SoCal.
    But here we had "drive-through voting" on Monday, for last-minute voter registrations:

    Dems need to win at least 30 seats to preserve a majority in 2010 which would probably be an anti-Dem wave. In the Senate they will need at least 59 seats. An Obama Presidency is likely to result in the loss of the seats in Arkansas, Colorado, Hawaii (Lingle will probably run), Nevada, ND and WI.
