Comment: The Immigrant Vote Is Here - A report from the Immigration Policy Center, featured below, paints a picture of the growing electoral power of new Americans: naturalized citizens and the US born children of immigrants. They already account for over 10% of registered voters and are growing rapidly. The immigrant vote has finally arrived for the first time since the National Origins Quota Acts of 1921 and 1924. Just like in the early 1900s, the immigratn vote is geographically concentrated and is largely urban. The immigrant vote was pivotal in transforming the Democratic Party urban immigrants were an integral part of the new FDR coalition. Within the next decade or so, this immigrant vote will remake one of the two parties whether Democratic or Republican remains to be seen. Perhaps the 112th Congress will hold a glimpse of the future - because PART of that future is already here.
