On Thursday, March 10, 2011, the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Immigration is holding another in its series of blatantly anti-immigration hearings.

The leaders of House Mass Deportation Caucus, Reps. Smith, Gallegly, and King, are not only driving the GOP immigration strategy, they are driving their party off of a political cliff.

Today, the leaders of the House Mass Deportation Caucus, Reps. Elton Gallegly (R-CA), Steve King (R-IA) and Lamer Smith (R-TX), have organized a hearing that they’ve disingenuously titled “Making Immigration Work for American Minorities.” That’s not what it’s about.

Leaders of the Subcommittee, Reps. Lamar Smith, Elton Gallegly, and Steve King, are professing profound concern for people of color and American workers. But their voting records tell an entirely different story, and America’s Voice Education Fund (AVEF) is exposing the rank hypocrisy behind their strategy.

Pew Hispanic Center is out with a new poll. Though they want to focus on letting us know that the “Public Favors Tougher Border Controls and Path to Citizenship” (we already knew that), more relevant to current immigration news is this: Americans don’t want to change the 14th Amendment’s provision on birthright citizenship.
