ILLINOIS ISSUES
-- Immigrant friendly On immigration, Illinois is at the forefront in bucking a national trend - Daniel C. Vock
http://illinoisissues.uis.edu/features/2008apr/immigration.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If the pro-immigrant forces are modest at a statewide level, the anti-immigrant movement in Illinois is almost nonexistent. That’s a stark contrast to states in the Southwest and the South, where people calling for more curbs on illegal immigrants are vocal, organized and effective. Not everyone’s convinced, though, that the only way to win elections in immigrant-heavy areas is with lenient immigration policies. State Sen. Chris Lauzen, an Aurora Republican, lives in an area where the immigrant population is ballooning. Lauzen notes that Aurora is about 37 percent Hispanic and 11 percent black. But Lauzen says he still enjoys support from Aurora voters, including Republicans who backed him in his unsuccessful primary bid for a U.S. House seat in February. The people he talks to, he says, think there’s a “clear difference” between immigrants here legally and those here illegally. Lauzen cast the lone dissenting vote when the Senate agreed to let some undocumented college students get in-state tuition, and he disagreed with the E-Verify restrictions, too. “People say you have to pander to this demographic — this seismic change. I think that is inaccurate,” Lauzen says. In fact, Republicans chose a notoriously hard-line candidate on immigration over Lauzen in the primary to take the seat of former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert. But Democrat Bill Foster, a former Fermilab scientist, will replace Hastert for the rest of the year and will run for a full two-year term in November.)
