The just-concluded national election has breathed new life to the issue of immigration reform.  The political reality of the size of Latino turnout (10% of the electorate) and the fact that they overwhelmingly voted Democratic has caused many Republicans to revisit their position on immigration reform.  At the same time, exit polls of all voters showed large majority support for immigration reform as well.  Immigration policy in America is all about politics and voters have seemingly turned the political tide in favor of immigration reform.  After this year’s Supreme Court decision and this election, I believe the days of Arizona- and Alabama-style state immigration legislation are over and that comprehensive immigration reform legislation will be introduced early in the next session.
