Comment: GOP Donors For CIR
The New York Times reports that over a hundred big-name donors to the Republican Party have written a letter to the Republican members of Congress urging them to pass Comprehensive Immigration Reform. The letter argues:

Immigrants are often entrepreneurial, family-minded and guided by faith. These are Republican values. Immigrants play key roles at every level of the American economy. From high-skill workers to seasonal laborers, from big-city neighborhoods to small-town main streets, immigrants help drive our economic growth. These are Republican issues. Republicans ought to be welcoming immigrants and be seen as doing so.
The donors have it right - they know that for Republicans not to act on immigration is a demographic death wish that will lock the party out of federal offices including the White House for generations. We urge the Republican Congressmen to heed the voice of reason of their own steadfast supporters. Please let us know your thoughts by writing to us at
