Vote Early And Often

Individuals are invited to vote and select their pick for the next Republican presidential candidate in what is billed as the 1st annual Presidential March Madness. The online survey which began on March 17, 2005 listed 64 notable Republicans vying for the 2008 Republican nomination. The survey has received additional media attention because the list, now down to eight candidates, includes Rep. Tancredo who has received more votes than any other candidate.

Supporters of Rep. Tancredo and his anti-immigration platform have been encouraging their constituents to visit the site and vote in the survey to boost Rep. Tancredo's rating and increase his press coverage. Anti-immigrationists have used the results of straw polls (like this one) to support the proposition that Americans support the anti-immigrationists' policies. If Rep. Tancredo were to lose in this straw poll, it would reduce the confidence of the backers of the REAL ID bill, and would also possibly pave the way to sweeping legalization legislation in the near future. No registration is required to vote, and apparently more than one vote per person is permitted provided it be done on different days. Those who are interested in defeating Mr. Tancredo's message, may want to vote in this online straw poll. Those who vote may want to tell all their friends to take this quick, easy, and possibly decisive action against Mr. Tancredo. Vote early and vote often!

We welcome readers to share their opinion and ideas with us by writing to editor@ilw.com.

Dear Editor:
Although your comment (3/30/05 ID) brings up a significant point, I find a specific sentence that is written there to be very contradictory. "These undocumented individuals were the victims of 9/11 and are being victimized again because of their undocumented status." What this sentence is saying, in other words, is "These people, who knowingly broke our law by entering our country, deserve to benefit from our law now that they have successfully breached our borders and managed to come close enough to a life threatening situation to try to swipe amnesty from the US government." Supporting immigration is great. But supporting illegal immigrants in their struggle to prove our country invalid and inept is simply wrong.

Arud

Dear Editor:
For more than a thousand times, I do have to say that Immigration Daily really works on the immigration cause and I feel really happy to see a time like you described (3/16/05 ID comment). You are absolutely right. When this will have a happy end?

Simone
