I see The New York Times weighed in on Sunday with a big piece looking at the reasons why a hard line on immigration has been oversold as a political strategy -- a point made on this site previously by Josh and myself.
Still, the Times does give you a bunch of fun 19th-century history as context.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
