Roy Beck, executive director of NumbersUSA, says immigration enforcement supporters celebrated a victory last week when November 2 brought a Congress more interested in reducing immigration than what the U.S. has seen since 1924, and certainly over the past 50 years.
Roy Beck"Members of the House who are either [for] less immigration...or [are] uncommitted [make up] almost 70 percent," he reports. "And the less immigration people themselves are just two votes short of a majority. The immigration, pro-amnesty people went from being almost a majority, which is 218; they went all the way down to 170. At least three dozen pro-amnesty seats in Congress were eliminated." He decides "that's pretty great news."
Moreover, Beck says roughly six of the Senate's most aggressive amnesty advocates will be replaced by newcomers who are less immigration-oriented. That will create a virtual 50-50 deadlock on the amnesty issue in that chamber.http://www.onenewsnow.com/Politics/Default.aspx?id=1227362
