The Kennedy-Kyl Bill and Winning the Immigration Debate

Author: Jim Kessler
In The Culture Program


A memo updating our basic message and strategy on immigration in the context of the pending Kennedy-Kyl immigration reform bill.


This memo updates a shorter version of our broader Message Memo on immigration and shows how progressives can use our message and strategy in support of the Kennedy-Kyl immigration reform legislation. Our strategy is derived from an in-depth poll conducted Benenson Strategy Group in which we asked tough questions that tested our own values and beliefs in order to find the best way to win the immigration argument and pass meaningful reform. As this memo makes clear, we believe this is an issue in which progressives can win—both on the politics and the substance.
