Former Rep. Travis Childers (D) “signed an anti-amnesty pledge a conservative organization is pushing, a move that could endear him to disgruntled supporters of former tea party candidate Chris McDaniel, the runner-up to Sen. Thad Cochran (R) in the GOP primary.”

“Childers said he signed the Federation for American Immigration Reform’s pledge in part because he worries about Mississippi’s high unemployment rate, which he thinks would be exacerbated by allowing undocumented immigrants to work in the U.S.” (Washington Post)
