Dear Editor:

I also disagree with your 9/30 analysis of the CA recall election as also discussed on 10/7 by Michael D. If Davis had won, you would attribute that to his pro-immigration policies, yet you avoid the obvious in accepting that his loss represents a pro-restrictionist view. Your conclusion is reached only by separating the anti-Davis vote, when in reality, all of it represents a significant backlash against Davis and Bustamante policies of pandering to illegals, causing much of California's financial woes. Cruz received less than one third support of the voters which is a devastating rejection of the excessive immigration position. Even though the Governator may be more moderate on the issue than McClintock, all of their supporters rejected the pandering to illegals by Davis, et al. Justin Randolph's 10/7 wishful comment that, "Once again, mainstream America isn't using the ballot box to punish the political representatives who support immigration", has negated his "strongest evidence" rather promptly and dramatically. That the American public overwhelmingly supports immigration controls can be seen from a Roper ASW poll which this past spring found 85 percent in support of "requiring state and local government agencies, and law enforcement agencies, to apprehend and turn over to the INS illegal immigrants with whom they come in contact."  Sixty-two percent of respondents "strongly" agreed.  Eighty-three percent support "mandatory detention and forfeiture of property" for illegal aliens.  Seventy percent favor mandatory prison sentences, in addition to asset forfeiture and removal, for immigration law violations. A recent Arizona State University poll showed more than 70% support for the state initiative to limit voting and some benefits to citizens only. See: Nevada just announced a similar initiative. Polls show that CA's Prop. 187 would pass again today overwhelmingly. Mainstream Americans continue to speak out on the topic. Special interests and elected officials need to realize that mainstream Americans are serious about restrictionist immigration reform and controls as yesterday's election clearly revealed.
