A new study outlined how the establishment Republicans immigration deals have and will continue to cost the GOP elections.
â€œIn House elections, 11 congressional districts and 5 states in presidential elections switched to a Democrat majorityâ€ between 1990 and 2010, says the April 2018 study, titled â€œThe Political Impact of Immigration.â€
â€œNo state and no congressional district switched from a Democrat majority to a Republican majority as a consequence of immigration,â€ said theÂ report, authored by pro-migration economist Giovanni Peri,Â Anna Maria Mayda, a Georgetown University professor now at the U.S. State Department, andÂ Walter Steingress, an economist at the Bank of Canada.
â€œIf the studyâ€™s results are correct, it is very difficult to imagine the Republican Party will remain viable nationally if immigration continues at the current level,â€ said Steve Camarota, research director at the Center for Immigration Studies. Currently, the federal government welcomes one legal immigrant for every four Americans who turn 18 as it tries to spur business activity via mass immigration.
The GOP establishment continues to push for a DACA amnesty that would likely lead to over 1 million aliens receiving citizenship.
