Loss of Election by Republicans Based on Their Immigration-Reduction Grade of This Congress:
9.6% with an A grade lost
9.2% with a B grade lost
6.4% with a C grade lost
9.5% with a D grade lost
25.0% with an F grade lost
And as a look at the verbiage on immigration revealed, not a single candidate--Republican or Democrat--advocated amnesty or railed against "xenophobia". Instead, they decried the failure of the Bush Administration to do anything about porous borders and promised to make securing the border a top priority. Consequently, legislators in both the Republican and Democratic parties have become less friendly to the open border agenda than they were prior to the elections, although the leadership for both remains commited to realizing them. Pelosi has already been shot down early with Hoyer's ascension to Majority Leader. Hopefully her failures will continue.
