Is Mitt Romney really anti illegal immigrant? Any thoughts?


Quote:
Mormons also tend toward moderation when it comes to immigration, Campbell said. In that area, Romney has strayed to the right of his church, which last year supported a law signed in Utah that allows undocumented immigrants to stay in the state as long as they work and didn't commit any crimes. Romney has given off mixed signals on immigration, talking tough as a candidate but pushing as Massachusetts governor for amnesty for an African immigrant who was later deported.

I don't trust any politician on this issue. All we can do is hope that we will elect a president and a congress that will honor and defend our borders and demand enforcement of our immigration laws.

Like you, I don't trust their kind either. Family's from Chicago and what they told me about machine politics made me sick.

Many people, especially Republicans/conservatives, get hung up on whether or not a particular candidate is truly as anti-illegal as they claim and some candidates, such as Newt Gingrich, have actually come out in favor of some kind of amnesty.

However, this is what is most important and needs to be emphasized: the next president will most likely be appointing at least two, perhaps three, new Supreme Court justices as the current ones retire. Even if a candidate expresses some openness to an amnesty of some sort, it is of utmost importance that Obama not be re-elected and given the opportunity to appoint two or three more radical leftists to the Supreme Court. It is not only the Supreme Court, but Federal District Court judges who will be appointed.

Many important issues of our day will be decided at the court level. Think how many provisions, laws, etc., trying to regulate illegals have already been overturned in the courts (even in California). If Obama is allowed to appoint even more radical leftist judges all over the country, as well as on the Supreme Court, we are pretty much finished.

So, if you look at it this way, it really doesn't matter too much whether a particular candidate is spouting pro-illegal rhetoric or not. Bush was over-the-top pro-illegal and where did that get him?? What matters is who these guys are going to appoint to Supreme Court and Federal District Courts. And no matter what their individual rhetoric on illegals, conservatives (even Romney) are not likely to appoint radical leftists to the courts.

What? His father is dead and his mother was born in the US. I believe Mitt's father, George, tried to run for the POTUS many years ago. Though he being born in Mexico may have been a problem but his parents were US citizens.

Yes the thought is" When will Zacatena stop with the "immigrant" BS in an "Illegal alien " forum.

Nice try but yet another failed thread you started under the wrong premise.

The OP is unable and/or unwilling to discuss the real issue and deliberately injects "immigrant" to garner misguided sympathy in her never ending quest to cloud the issue by painting blatant lawbreakers as "immigrants".

George Romney was governor of Michigan at one time also. I doubt that one can be a governor without being a citizen of this country.

Not to mention the other erroneous word for them, "undocumented".
