Andrés Martinez on Stumped thoughtfully responds to the question whether the Republican candidates will try to make "Immigration This Year's Gay Marriage?" Among other things, Martinez discusses the oft-unexplored linkages between trade and migration.
On a related note, efforts are being made to place anti-affirmative action initiatives, like those passed in California, Washington, and, most recently, Michigan, on the 2008 ballot in a number of states. This might affect the Presidential election in those states, just like the gay marriage measures did in sveral states in 2004. We wil see but stay tuned!
