ABSTRACT
The article examines the political implications of the issue of immigration in the U.S. It discusses the fallacies imbedded in the argument raised by the "Wall Street Journal" and the La Raza-Urban Institute on the fall in demographic support for the Republican Party among Hispanic voters. It contends that there has been no shift in the voting patterns of Hispanics in 1996. It also explains the voting attitudes of assimilated and prosperous and newly arrived Hispanics. It comments on the tendency of new immigrants to slow down the rate of assimilation.
