Rep. Tancredo, Media Darling

Immigration Daily attended a briefing held today for journalists examining how immigrant issues are being dealt with by both parties this election season. The briefing was held in New York City during this week's GOP Convention and was sponsored by the New York Immigration Coalition and the Independent Press Association of New York. The panelists were Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO) and Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) with Frank Sharry, Executive Director of the National Immigration Forum serving as moderator. The event was attended by approximately 30 people, approximately 2/3rds of who were journalists. The questions from the journalists during the Q&A session were from an immigrant perspective, which is not surprising since much of the press representatives were from the immigrant and the international press.

The media is currently making a big deal of Rep. Tancredo's opposition to President Bush's pro-immigration position. The impression conveyed is that the Republican party is seriously split on immigration. However, there might be less than meets the eye here. In Republican primaries where the leading candidates had taken opposite views on immigration, the pro-immigration candidates have so far had a remarkable string of victories. The anti-immigrationists like Rep. Tancredo in the Republican party are losing out to President Bush's pro-immigration vision and are crying sour grapes.
