When the White House race began in earnest with the first party nominating contests in Iowa in January, a broad field of Republican candidates vied to demonstrate their toughness on illegal immigration, pledging more border enforcement and a crackdown on illegal workers.
But with a narrowing of the races to secure the Republican and Democratic nominations ahead of November's general election, the issue could slip lower down the agenda as far as the candidates are concerned, analysts say.
"Looking forward to the general election, it's not that immigration is going to be redefined, it's just going to go away," predicted Steven Camarota, research director of the Center for Immigration Studies think-tank, which advocates reduced immigration.

IMO, this depends on what illegals do between now and election time.

The anti- illegal immigration "fervor" is felt by the citizens, not the candidates. This fervor is not going away simply because the candidates refuse to address it.

Until the candidate that wins tries another amnesty bill.

The people will prevail again on the local level. Their representatives will be forced to vote it down, thus sparking the anti illegal "fervor" all over again. The only solution is to take away the carrot, not give amnesty.
