Mark Krikorian, the National Review's resident anti-immigrant activist and the Executive Director of the Center for Immigration Studies, wondered on Friday if anyone will arrest journalist and undocumented immigrant Jose Antonio Vargas when he goes to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee next week:

Krikorian was recently seen writing that the problem with Republicans trying to capture the Hispanic vote is that Hispanics have a "natural inclination to support the Left. The native-born, who account for the overwhelming majority of Hispanic voters, have higher rates of poverty, welfare use, single-parent families — none of which is suggestive of openness to a message of small government and moral traditionalism."
