ONE of the candidates in the presidential race is touting total reform with an amnesty component, while the OTHER did absolutely nothing for 3.5 years...even when his party held majorities in both the house, senate and while he occupied the white house. The OTHER guy...he was also a senator for 4 years prior and never introduced immigration reform legislation. Guess which is which.
Romney was as anti-immigrant as can be during the primaries (Mr. Self-Deportation) and now, of course, he's trying to shake his Etch-a-Sketch and reverse that damage ... without offering any specifics or even saying whether he would reverse Obama's executive action. Gumby has more spine than Romney.
"The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."
-- Adam Smith
So we have a partisan simply repeating the rightwing mantra that is being used as cover for the hapless Willard.
Then there is that well known librul biased media reporting on what really happened a couple of years ago

Dec. 18, 2010
Senate Republicans today blocked a controversial immigration measure that would have provided a conditional path to legal residency for hundreds of thousands of young, undocumented immigrants first brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents.
By a vote of 55 to 41, the bill -- the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors, or DREAM Act -- failed to win the 60 votes needed to break a GOP filibuster, even though the measure passed the House last week.
Who was President from 2001 to 2009? What party did he belong to? Every day we see similar examples of Republican hypocrisy - actions and policies they once supported are now anathema simply because the present President is an advocate."We are declaring a 10-year victory," said Roy Beck, president of Numbers USA, an advocacy group that has lobbied against the DREAM Act. "Since 2001, there has been an attempt to pass giant amnesties every year. And we have been on defense, we have fought every single year. And now there's not going to be any amnesty in this new Congress. It's over."
“And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822
Oh, I am sorry...Did I miss something other than the barrage of "don't read it, just pass it" ultimatums from arguably the worst majority leader of the Senate to ever hold the position? Yeah, compromise to demo's means do it our way.
I don't know what can be more anti Hispanic than implying that latino constituents can't be trusted with forks and knives....heh, heh....Romney was as anti-immigrant as can be during the primaries (Mr. Self-Deportation) and now, of course, he's trying to shake his Etch-a-Sketch and reverse that damage ... without offering any specifics or even saying whether he would reverse Obama's executive action.
