Mitt Romney called the controversial Arizona illegal immigration law a model for the country, and blasted the Obama administration for challenging it in court.

"I will drop those lawsuits on Day One," Romney said in response to a question on illegal immigration during a GOP candidate debate in Mesa, Ariz. Gov. Jan Brewer, who signed the bill, was in the audience.

"I'll also complete the fence, I'll make sure we have enough Border Patrol agents to secure the fence, and I will make sure we have an E-Verify system and require employers to check the documents of workers," he added.

You're right. I don't trust any of the Republicans anymore than I do the Democrats on this issue when push comes to shove. Talk is cheap. Put up or shut up. At least Romney is telling me what I want to hear. Hope he doesn't disappoint if he becomes our next president.

I agree with everything you said Chicagonut. But even if he would drop the lawsuits and let states enforce the law it would help. If all the illegals congregated in the sanctuary cities it would break the bank and something would have to change.

If you look at the cities with the highest debt, it's the ones that harbor illegals. It would make it darn hard to make the case that they aren't costing us dearly.

I really fear that with 4 more years of Obama they will all be amnestied through the back door. Then, of course, they would be allowed to sponser there families that they are so afraid to go home to.
