Comment: Latino Immigration Lawyer Defeats Anti-Immigrant Democrat - A Latino immigration lawyer, Republican Raul Labrador, defeated the anti-immigrant Democratic incumbent in Idaho's first congressional district. Immigration attorney Rep. Joseph Cao, Republican of New Orleans was defeated, thus keeping the number of immigration attorneys in the House of Representatives the same (at two, including the current House Immigration Sub-Committee Chair). The most prominent immigrant who won this November 2nd was Marco Rubio of Florida, whose parents became Americans thanks to the generous immigration provisions extended to Cuban nationals. We hope Senator-Elect Rubio will advocate the same generous immigration provisions for people of all nationalities - perhaps he will begin by sponsoring a Haitian Adjustment Act.
