New Hampshire Voters Show Appetite for Moderation on Immigration

WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Tuesday, New Hampshire voters went to the polls for the first primary of the 2016 presidential race. And a large swath of Republican voters showed that they’re looking for candidates who can offer real answers on immigration.

“New Hampshire shows that there is clearly an appetite among conservative voters for candidates who are moderate on immigration,” said Ali Noorani, executive director of the National Immigration Forum Action Fund. “Regardless of the front-runner, the success of candidates like John Kasich and Jeb Bush shows that a strong group of conservatives support presidential candidates with realistic and constructive contributions to the immigration debate.

“The upcoming primaries in more diverse states like South Carolina and Nevada are sure to reflect the important role immigrants play in local communities and economies. New Hampshire showed the desire for moderation on immigration; South Carolina and Nevada should drive that message home.”
