Comment: Anti-Immigrationist Loses - Latino Fox News reports "In an unprecedented recall election, Arizona's State Senator and Senate President Russell Pearce, conceded defeat Tuesday. The defeat was a stunning rebuke to the author of Arizona's controversial immigration law and could serve as a warning signal to politicians who have advocated hard-line policies on immigration.
The recall vote was widely perceived as a referendum on immigration policies by both sides of the political divide. Pearce himself painted the recall advocates as liberal outsiders who were targeting him because of immigration. Although the GOP retains control of the Legislature, Pearce's defeat is being interpreted by Republicans as message that divisive stands on immigration and other issues are not welcome by voters." Making persecution of immigrants a top priority while hurting your state's economy in the process is certainly bad public policy, and it also looks like it is bad politics for demagogues who attempt it. Please let us know what you think of this development by commenting in our letters section, or by writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
