Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

IMMIGRATION NO LONGER THE GIFT THAT KEEPS GIVING FOR ANTI-IMMIGRANT REPUBLICANS

Rate this Entry

Bashing immigrants doesn't appear to be working so well as in the past for the xenophobic wing of the Republican Party. That, plus pressure to tone things down and not embarrass their presidential candidate who is trying to woo Hispanic voters, help explain why we're not seeing the nasty ads of recent elections past.

    Why is Krikorian always the "expert" of choice? Why not Greg Siskind or Kevin Johnson or Kathleen Campbell Walker? Krikorian is the tooliest of tools, and I'm tired of reading what he has to say in every news piece on immigration.

    Yave, I don't know about always but Krikorian does appear to be the go-to quote of the lower immigration, anti-amnesty, pro-immigration law enforcement side. Unfortunately for you, Greg, KJ, or anyone else on the other side, Frank Sharry appears to have the market cornered. Page 1 of this article quotes Lynn Tramonte, policy director for Sharry's new outfit America's Voice. Where have you gone, Tamar Jacoby?

    "Krikorian considers legislation that allows illegal immigrants to stay in the country as offering "amnesty" to those who committed a crime. "In 2010, if Congress does in fact pass an amnesty, then the midterm congressional elections will definitely see immigration as an issue," he said."

    You can go back and check..he said something similar in 2006 and 2008. In 2006, he claimed that all the GOP congressmen who supported the 2005 anti-illegal House bill would win. Many lost including several from the House Immigration Reform Caucus. In early 2008 he claimed that this would be a banner year for anti-immigrant politicians..several defeats later led by Oberweiss in Illinois and a possible Democratic sweep and gain of 15+ seats in the House, he has moved the goal post to 2010. He may get his wish if Obama becomes President. He will definitely not get his wish if McCain is the President.

    Last year only 520,000 legal immigrants came to the US versus a projected one million. Perhaps if we go into depression, that number would be reduced to 100,000 or even less and the racist Kirkorian would be very happy to have preserved a white America. Perhaps he needs to lobby the Congress for unfriendly anti-economic growth legislation..he would have better luck in reducing immigration.
