- As the Republican National Committee meets to decide the future direction for the party, panelists will argue that opposition to amnesty and support for border security is crucial if the GOP wishes to remain a majority party. Despite the claims by pro-amnesty advocates and the mainstream media that immigration control cost the GOP in the 2008 elections, in virtually every single lost the seat, the Republican supported amnesty and/or the Democrat supported border security, according to a new study. "Immigration and the 2008 Republican Defeat," will be released by Pat Buchanan's The American Cause on January 29 at 12:30 p.m. at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The study is a detailed analysis of every single Republican seat lost in the 2008 House Race, and shows in virtually every race the Republican supported amnesty or the Democrat supported tough border security.

LOL, really? I can think of a handful of races where the republican was totally opposed to CIR and still lost againt a dem who supported CIR. The anti-immigrant crowd ALWAYS rely on lies and propaganda to push their agenda.

I would like to see the data rather than accept any party spin at this point.

That being said. Obama lost Oklahoma because of his stance on immigration.
That was the singular biggest grip I heard from Dems her as to their dissatisfaction with him.

Nothing imperical, just observation.
