Mass Immigration Leads To Mass Redistricting

Commentary by the Federation for American Immigration Reform

WASHINGTON - Open immigration and amnesty advocates have been issuing dire warnings for years that the growing base of Hispanic voters would punish politicians who support reducing immigration and enforcing immigration laws. In a delicious irony, the Inside-the-Beltway publication National Journal reports that in the next election the most likely victims of mass immigration are California’s 53-member House delegation - some of the most avid enthusiasts for mass immigration.

 

All 53 congressional districts must be redrawn as a result of the 2010 Census. This time around an independent commission, with no vested interest in protecting incumbents, will do the drawing. California has also switched to a “top two” primary system that pits the two candidates who garner the highest vote totals in primary elections, regardless of party affiliation, in the general election. These two factors, combined with the immigration-driven growth of the state’s Hispanic population, could result in many new Hispanic faces among California’s congressional delegation after the next election.

 

The most likely members to lose their seats as a result of these combined factors include long-time champions of mass immigration and amnesty: Democratic Representatives Sam Farr, Lois Capps, Howard Berman, Zoe Lofgren and Brad Sherman, according the National Journal. A sixth mass immigration enthusiast, Bob Filner, would likely be on the endangered list, if he had not announced his intention to run for mayor of San Diego.

 

Many Democratic politicians have embraced mass immigration in the belief that down the road these immigrants would vote for Democrats. Turns out they’re right. Newly enfranchised Hispanic voters are likely to elect Democrats to office – just not the Democrats who promoted mass immigration. As the saying goes, “Every revolution devours its own.

 

The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) is a national, nonprofit, public-interest, membership organization of concerned citizens who share a common belief that our nation's immigration policies must be reformed to serve the national interest.
