Immigration backers out-donate critics 24 to 1

immigration

This seems like a highly suspect report.
Check it out:

The coalition of business and progressive groups that back the Senate’s far-reaching immigration bill gave politicians far more in donations than rival advocates for reduced immigration, according to a new report by MapLight, a group that tracks money in politics.

Legislators received donations worth $63.2 million from business and progressive groups in favor of an immigration rewrite, but only $2.6 million from opponents of the ”Gang of Eight” bill that passed the Senate by a 68-32 vote Thursday. The GOP-led House of Representatives is expected to take up a separate bill after the July 4 recess.

That 24 to 1 ratio doesn’t include the factions’ spending on lobbyists, advocates, pollsters, public relations agents, or TV advertising.
