Is Immigration an Elitist Issue?

Here's a new argument being made by Jon Feere, Legal Policy Analyst at the Center for Immigration Studies, in a blog post for The Hill: Obama's lawless immigration plan is a gift to the 1 percent.

"Unlike most political issues, immigration is not really a right vs. left or Republican vs. Democrat issue. Instead, immigration is better understood as an elite vs. public issue where the elite in our society tends to support higher levels of immigration and where the general public tends to support lower levels of immigration. For politicians of all political stripes, the question on immigration is whether they will side with the elite or the public."
