I was a registered Independent up until 2005 when I switched my political party to Republican. The liberal ideas from Democrats about immigration (among other issues) really made me see that I was part of the Republican party.

I made this change just to vote in liberal John McCain in Nov.

Personally, I think Hillary would deal with immigration better than McCain would, but I am banking on McCain having a conservative group behind him to influence him to become anti-illegal immigration.

Actually i was an unregistered democrat until this year when i decided that the democrats (more on a local level) hugged illegals too much. I'm now an independent.

I personally don't think any of them will do anything regarding immigration.

Neither party intends to do anything about it, so I don't see the point in switching from one to the other over this particular issue.

Thats true, but many Republicans are against illegal immigration. We just happen to have a bad seed for our nominee, McCain. Democrats arent likelyy to support a anti-alien policy.

Only officially. I still consider myself an independent but I'm registered as a republican because I voted for Paul in the primaries.

Well, we've had a bad seed in jorge who has kept pushing amnesty for some reason, but enough REPUBLICATIONS prevented it from happening. It was a few Republicans in the House of Reps that prevented an amnesty last year.

I voted no because what's the point? All of them are pro illegal. I don't hold out much hope that anything will be acomplished in the four years of the next president, who ever that might be.

Registered Republican on the Liberal wing; almost switched parties, now, the more and more I see Hillary and Obama destroying one another--------I am glad that I sat tight.
