R-Joe Linus Barton (r-tx) Unlikely to support DREAM act or CIR-ASAP, he is rated 100% by FAIR, indicating a voting record that restricts immigration. The ratings are based on the votes the organization considered most important; the numbers reflect the percentage of time the representative voted with the organization's preferred position. Also on his official web site he seems to focus on immigration restrictions and not reform, “individuals who come here illegally should not be allowed to remain. I do not believe that amnesty in any fashion is an appropriate way to turn the tide of illegal immigration.” (joebarton.com/issues.aspx?Section=6). When he speaks of amnesty, I believe that he is referring to CIR and DREAM.
