Dear Friends,

"Last week, Immigrants' List-supported candidate Niki Tsongas of Massachusetts defeated a Republican opponent running on an anti-immigrant platform.

Tsongas spoke out in favor of reform that includes increased visas for high & low skilled workers, due process restoration, and a fair & practical pathway to earned citizenship.

Like so many candidates in 2006, Ogonowski used Tsongas position to demonize immigration into nothing more than a border security & amnesty issue - using it in TV ads, on the radio, and in direct mail pieces.

Immigrants' List was able to raise almost $20,000 for Tsongas in the last week of the campaign, when she needed it the most. She was able to use this money to counter her opponent's anti-immigration distortions. The electorate got the message, and in a district that former Republican Governor Mitt Romney won with 55% of the vote in 2002, Tsongas defeated her anti-immigrant opponent by six percentage points...".
