"As the immigration battle shifts to the House, word has spread among activists that Wong might be the Nate Silver of immigration reform — the go-to data geek with the crystal ball. But Wong doesn't just want to predict the future. He also wants to change it, by giving immigrant-rights advocates the statistical ammunition they need to influence lawmakers. The UC San Diego assistant professor recently led a conference call with about 30 advocacy groups, including Mark Zuckerberg's Fwd.us. Still more pro-reform organizations joined a second phone call to talk about his projections. This time, he would like to be proven wrong. His models show a range of measures, including a path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants in the country illegally, flaming out in the House." - Cindy Chang, L.A. Times, July 30, 2013.
