Activists in the NumbersUSA Action network are Americans of all races and include many immigrants and the spouses, children and parents of immigrants. Those who need to refer to NumbersUSA Action with a short, descriptive modifier should call it an "immigration-reduction organization."

A bad night for incumbent Senators who have favored foreign workers over U.S. workers. Pennsylvania Democrats in their Primary election put an end to the 30-year U.S. Senate tenure of Arlen Specter who had spent most of that career as a Republican championing the importation of foreign workers. And in Arkansas, a consistent supporter of amnesties to keep illegal foreign workers in U.S. jobs (Sen. Blanche Lincoln) failed to win the nomination in the Democratic Primary, forced into a runoff in June.
Pennsylvania Democrats in their Primary election put an end to the 30-year U.S. Senate tenure of Arlen Specter who had spent most of that career as a Republican championing the importation of foreign workers.
In Arkansas, a consistent supporter of amnesties to keep illegal foreign workers in U.S. jobs (Sen. Blanche Lincoln) failed to win the nomination in the Democratic Primary, forced into a runoff in June.
In the Arkansas Republican Primary, the winner (Rep. John Boozeman) is one of the best Republicans in the U.S. House in protecting U.S. workers from unfair competition from high immigration.
Coincidentally, an extramarital affair led to the resignation Tuesday of the holder of one of the worst immigration records among U.S. House Republicans (Rep. Mark Souder). Only 5 Republicans in the House have worse career immigration-reduction grades.
GC Notes: Souder and his mistress were filming abstinence only PR releases together.
This follows Utah's Republican convention defeat of incumbent Sen. Robert Bennett earlier (he had a record of leaning toward greedy business desires for foreign labor) . . .
. . . and the earlier Democratic Primary defeat of West Virginia incumbent Rep. Allan Mullohan who for 38 years has earned a NumbersUSA "F-Grade" for his dozens of actions putting the interests of greedy employers and foreign workers over the needs of low-paid and unemployed U.S. workers.
