Edwards, Taylor spar over immigration in CD17

Dan Genz in the Waco Trib-Herald:

Central Texas voters are being treated to a hostile debate over immigration reform as Republican nominee Van Taylor spars with U.S. Rep. Chet Edwards, D-Waco.

The latest Taylor television ad accused Edwards of making illegal immigration "even worse" with his votes in Congress, while the Edwards rebuttal asks, "What will Van Taylor lie about next?"

Taylor said eight votes over the past decade show Edwards is weak on illegal immigration enforcement and has supported giving illegal immigrants food stamps and other federal welfare benefits.

Edwards responded that Taylor is using only redundant, insignificant or misleading votes to make claims without mentioning Edwards' votes to ban giving illegal immigrants food stamps in 1996 and to promote stiffer penalties for illegal immigrants who have been arrested in 2005.

Just a data point, I don't really have much to say.
