The Greatest Story Never Told
September 12, 2008




Immigration2007.org wasan effort to catalogue how and where the immigration issue played in the 2007 election cycle. In 2006, immigration was hotly debated in almost all of the competitive House and Senate races and even several gubernatorial races as well. In the end, the Republican Party (which in the main had been responsible for attack ads on the issue) was unable to use immigration to counter a rising Democratic tide, a tide that proved even stronger in the end than most pundits had anticipated. In 2007 and in the wake of Congress’ failure to address this issue, immigration continued to come up in races at the federal level (the Massachusetts 5 special election) and state legislative races, most notably in Virginia. The site provided real time analysis of how the issue played out and some perspective on lessons learned.
