Rep. Dana T. Rohrabacher (R-CA) is the representative of California's 46th congressional district. Rohrabacher is considered to be a rank-and-file Republican by

"Rohrabacher is a staunch opponent of illegal immigration and was an advocate for California's Proposition 187, which denied government services to illegal immigrants. In 2004, he sponsored a bill that would have prohibited federal reimbursement of hospital-provided emergency care and certain transportation services to undocumented aliens unless the hospital provided information about the aliens' citizenship, immigration status, financial data, and employer to the Secretary of Homeland Security. Aliens who were in the country illegally would receive reimbursement only after they were deported. The proposed bill was overwhelmingly defeated. [3]

On March 30, 2006, Rohrabacher decried a guest worker proposal as a "foul odor that's coming out of the United States Senate." He said that if illegal immigrants who do many farm jobs were deported, "the millions of young men who are prisoners around our country can pick the fruits and vegetables. I say, let the prisoners pick the fruits.""

Rep. Rohrabacher is likely to vote nay on the D.R.E.A.M. Act or any sort of comprehensive immigration bill.
