Abstract

In recent years, immigration has emerged as one of the most important issues that Americans believe the country faces. But what affects how legislators vote on immigration issues? In new research on state-based immigration legislation, James Avery and Jeff Fine find that when an area has more Latinos, Republicans who represent them are more likely to vote for restrictive immigration policies, while Democrats are consistent in their opposition to such measures no matter the number of Latinos in their district.
