According to an article on newsday.com: “… a parade of Republicans came to the convention podium in St. Paul last week with barely a mention of immigration. On Wednesday and Thursday nights, 38 speakers addressed the GOP crowd and only one – unknown Kansas farmer Carolyn Dunn – even uttered the word “immigration.” There was not a single mention of border security or amnesty from McCain or his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.”
Similarly, the Democratic National Convention kept the issue out of the spotlight. Considering Americans are sufering from real economic problems, and the divicive nature of the immigration issue, it is a good move. I am sure Obama and Biden will bring up the issue in the debates, which could hurt McCain in light of his changing his position for political gain.
