PRO-IMMIGRATION SPECTER SWITCHING PARTIES

Republican Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania has announced he is switching to the Democrats and will run for the Democratic nomination for Senate in the Keystone State next year. The Democrats will have a filibuster-proof sixty seats after Al Franken is soon sworn in. As far as immigration politics go, however,this will not really change much. Specter was already a pro-immigration vote and that won't change. In fact, it is a bit disappointing to lose a pro-immigration voice in the GOP leaving just a handful of Senators with a solid record in this area (and one wonders whether the two pro-immigration GOP Senators in Maine are the next ones to jump ship?).
