Both candidates are trying to connect with Latinos in those states who have been stung by anti-immigrant rhetoric they regard as racially tinged. The candidates want such voters to know they want increased immigration enforcement but also a path for an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants to try to earn legal status.

McCain may have the more difficult task.

He once earned the respect of Latinos – and the wrath of many immigration hardliners in his own party – for championing so-called comprehensive reform. The Republican nominee now says he won't consider legalization or visa reform before Southwest governors certify that the U.S.-Mexico border is secure.

However, the Republican platform contradicts McCain by rejecting amnesty or "en mass legalizations."

The Rev. Sam Rodriguez, Sacramento-based president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, an evangelical network, is a social conservative leaning toward voting for McCain.

He has spoken with McCain about immigration and is convinced he has a commitment to legalization. But Rodriguez says he is bothered that the McCain campaign's message on immigration changes "according to the venue."

"The problem is Senator McCain's party has been the personification of xenophobia and nativism," said Rodriguez, who is Puerto Rican. "We really need the RNC (the Republican National Committee) to apologize to the Hispanic community."

We don't owe anyone that is in this country illegally amnesty. Those latino citizens feel who differently are free to go home with their criminal loved ones. Adios amigos and take Obama and McCain with you.

It's strange how their arrogance knows no bounds the minute they illegally step foot on our soil. While in Mexico they are content to live invisible and silent in the squalor of tin shanty's without even the most basic of necessities or human rights. Yet they proudly waive the rag and speak the language of the country that hates them and does everything in its power to get rid of them. Yet America has given them more in one day than they have received from Mexico their entire poverty stricken, miserable lives.

The insanity of their backwards thinking is mind boggling.

I know that you are correct. Those who aren't smart enough to leave while they can still walk, are being picked up for everything from outstanding warrants, orders of deportation, gang violence, illegal entry and mortgage fraud.
