  • Sep 24 - Immigration Woes of Both Parties

    Comment: Immigration Woes of Both Parties
    A recent poll conducted by PEW Research examines partisans' views of their parties handling of key issues. In regard to immigration matters, both Republican and Democrats are not entirely happy with respect to their own party's policies, but GOP members show greater discontent with their party's positions.

    Just 37% of Republicans and Republican leaners think the GOP is doing a good job representing their views on illegal immigration; 56% say they are not doing a good job. Democrats are more positive about their party's handling of the issue. Still, about as many Democrats and Democratic leaners say the party is not doing a good job (44%) on immigration as say that it is (47%).

    There are deep divisions and discontent on the immigration issue among Democrats and Republicans alike. We urge leaders from both sides of the aisle to be statesmen, take the long view and offer solutions to our broken immigration system rather than punting the "hot potato" issue to the next Congress. Share your thoughts by writing to editor@ilw.com.
