Brown on immigration—not as bad as we thought?
This weekend I heard from a source who had spoken to a person who is involved in the immigration control issue and knows Scott Brown. The person said that Brown is good on immigration, at least on illegal immigration. He is strongly against amnesty.
As for Brown’s hiring of Edward Kennedy’s chief immigration advisor, the person said that this was done to maintain open lines to the other side. Brown does not share the Kennedy view of illegal immigration, amnesty, etc.
Of course, Brown himself has said that he wants to streamline legal immigration, which sounds like increasing it. But the main pointhere—because it’s an issue that may be coming up this year—is that we can expect Brown to be solidly anti-amnesty.
