"Immigration has never been this hot," said Roy Beck, who has been at the helm of anti-illegal immigration group NumbersUSA since 1996. "It's amazing it's this hot. I would have not predicted it." . . .

Beck, who calls immigration reform just another amnesty, said one of his group's newest strategies is the creation of a "top race list," which consists of the closest races where there's a candidate who could make a difference in illegal immigration.

"So if people want to contribute money that's where it would make the most difference in immigration," he said.
