Blaming Ilegal Immigrants
I got a hold of this survey that the Republican National Congressional Committee is sending out. It's awful and dehumanizing, and resorts to scare tactics (see words like "flood", "uncontrolled illegal immigration", etc). This is discouraging when some Republicans are currently sponsoring good bills that begin to deal with the problem, and I think it also shows that the vocal extremists will continue to define Republican policy in areas other than Supreme Court nominations. I hope this means that they will lose the votes of moderates and the business community, because the ideas put forth in this survey are ridiculous and will do nothing to solve the problems in our immigration system.
