As a point of information. You can spin it as you wish. I suppose that we could argue all day about what Sen.Hanger's immigration bill does or does not do. We might never come to a conclusuion. Maybe we should look at what the illegal immigrants think. I can't take credit for finding this. It was posted in a comment section . Read here for yourself the whole article by Deepak Bhargava of New America Media said in a commentary about "Undocumented Students." He specifically cites Sen.Hanger and his bill.
"The bill was introduced by Emmett W. Hanger, a Republican and longtime opponent of college education for undocumented students. After presiding over naturalization ceremonies and seeing these new citizens swear their loyalty after years of effort and toil, Mr. Hanger had a change of heart. "
I guess the "Undocumented students" know what it means to them?

I am assuming since you linked to the article, and you are citing as a referrence to support your claim that Senator Hanger is soft on immigration issues, that you side with "the deafening noise of hatred and racism pouring out of our legislatures and television sets" that Deepak Bhargava writes about. Senator Hanger took on a tough subject with little grey area for most and managed to draft a bill that passed unanimously in the Senate.

The blogs are looking a little thin. You seem to be the last man standing. SWAC Girl came to life to repost your material. She's a real sparkplug. You have anything else to say about how positive and happy the Sayre compaign is after seeing the fraudulent mailers over at Teddy's Truth? Has Senator Hanger ever used Sayre's name? I have ten of his mailers and the closest he comes is saying, "Do not be misled by fraudulent TV and radio ads being run by my opponent." Sayre, on the other hand, doesn't seem to be able to answer a question without attacking Senator Hanger. His mailers are all two faced with one side dedicated to attacking the Senator and the other side making promises he can't keep. Except, of course, for those mailers that just attack Senator Hanger.

Again, you are attacking Hanger's record! O.K., so he supports tuition for undocumented citizens. This area needs undocumented citizens. So stop attacking Emmett's record.

This area does not need undocumented illegal aliens. It might need immigrants, but undocumented,no. There are many, many migrants to this area.According to the census bureau the county has grown by over 8% since 2000. I came to the area. It has many fine attributes. I want them to remain. I don't want to have VA turn into MA(aka Taxachusetts)
Challenging a candidates record is not personal. We must remember 6/13.

According to the State of Texas’ Office of the Comptroller,

"undocumented immigrants contributed $17.7 billion to the gross state product of Texas, exceeding by nearly half a billion dollars the amount spent by the state for education, healthcare and other services to such immigrants... Revenue gains to governments resulting from undocumented immigrants consist primarily of taxes that cannot be avoided, such as sales taxes, various fees and user taxes on items such as gasoline and motor vehicle inspections."

Emmett Hanger knows that raising sales taxes causes "undocumented immigrants" to pay their fair share. This is what is true tax reform. Why don't you SWAC bloggers get it?

Raising sales taxes is tax reform? Only if you are a Democrat-Liberal-Socialist and like regressive taxes that kill jobs.

Republicans are supposed to cut taxes. The State Central Committee, RPV passed a resolution exhorting the Caucus to NOT raise taxes - but Hanger and other RINOs did.

The largest tax increase in Virginia history wasn't tax reform - unless you are a Stalinist.
