Placating the GOP base or protecting the workplace?

Quoted - Friday, July 27, 2007

"'A lot of people on our side are saying the same thing,' says Roy Beck, director of NumbersUSA, an 'immigrant reduction' organization opposed to granting citizenship to illegal immigrants, which processed more than 2 million faxes to Congress in opposition to the Senate bill. 'We believe these very public and dramatic raids were designed to create a situation where we'd come to believe President Bush will carry out enforcement, so that we would support his amnesty plan. It obviously didn't work.'
