Some intelligent writers are getting into the amnesty discussion today. They agree with other writers discussed here yesterday -- that amnesty for illegal aliens will kill the Republican Party even faster. Supporting amnesty would be foolish indeed. The Hispanic question, however, is more than amnesty, we must slow or stop legal Hispanic immigration as well -- for the simple reason that Hispanics overwhelmingly vote for Democrats.
The best essay on the subject comes from Heather McDonald at the Corner, "Why Hispanics Don't Vote For Republicans." She quotes statistics showing that Hispanics are not particularly concerned with the amnesty question; they vote for Democrats for other reasons, i.e. "free stuff."
