Re: Today's Letter: A Liberal Reader Explains The Downside Of Single Issue Candidates
Many readers who commented on Joe Guzzardi's column about the failure of the patriotic immigration reform movement to support Tom Tancredo and Duncan Hunter expressed opinions similar to Paul Verizzo's (above)—that campaigning on the single issue of immigration doomed them to failure.
But immigration is not a single issue.
I can't think of one aspect of our lives that immigration does not adversely impact.
What Tom Tancredo, Duncan Hunter and the others failed to do was to make the connections to the related issues before bringing immigration up as the cause of the other problems.
That so many Republican candidates brought immigration up is a victory in itself and shows how far we have progressed.
