Palin Interview to Univision
Univision ^ | 2 weeks before 2008 election

Posted on 08/15/2011 5:20:37 AM PDT by normy

Governor, let me ask you about immigration. How many undocumented immigrants are there in Alaska? I don't know, I don't know. That's a good question.

As governor, how do you deal with them? Do you think they all should be deported? There is no way that in the US we would roundup every illegal immigrant -there are about 12 million of the illegal immigrants- not only economically is that just an impossibility but that's not a humane way anyway to deal with the issue that we face with illegal immigration.

Do you then favor an amnesty for the 12 or 13 million undocumented immigrants? No, I do not. I do not. Not total amnesty. You know, people have got to follow the rules. They've got to follow the bar, and we have got to make sure that there is equal opportunity and those who are here legally should be first in line for services being provided and those opportunities that this great country provides.

To clarify, so you support a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants? I do because I understand why people would want to be in America. To seek the safety and prosperity, the opportunities, the health that is here. It is so important that yes, people follow the rules so that people can be treated equally and fairly in this country.

“path to citizenship” is code for Amnesty.

The problem is that Palin has not demonstrated she will do, can do or even understands the problem. Her supporter seem to project onto her how they think she will be.

I see Palin as a good asset but her experience leaves me wondering.

My guess is if she were to win the nomination and become President she would adopt the Texas model for success, not the Alaska model because the Alaska model would never work. It's a model of taxes on energy producers and government welfare to balance budgets. It just doesn't work in the real world.

Perry knows this because Texas gives more than it gets back in tax dollars, has a 1,200 mile border with Mexico it has to secure itself and on much of it's own dime, has 25 million people and still balances the budget and has a rainy day fund as well as creating jobs. That's a micro-America, Alaska is, as Dennis Miller put it, the fridge out in the garage with a bunch of snacks in it and it's set off from the house.

To: government is the beast

Where is the logic?

Exactly! It is total BS that every illegal cannot be eventually returned to their nation of origin. If it is done by the government physically on some public frontline of identification, say when they come for medical help (and it is humanely administered with subsequent flagging of the individual as an illegal to be physically returned), to one half million illegals, then you can bet that their own self-deportation will conduct at least another five or ten million. Word travels fast.

Throw in border security, employment check, and denial of certain citizen services, it can be done, humanely, and efficiently.

The approach is a matter of their human intelligence. "They" are not that dumb. It is a matter of discipline, respect, and civil behavior, which we should be expecting in the United States. In fact the tear shedding liberalism permitting this abomination of an invasion is actually a furtive form of arrogance (on the liberal's part), the stereotype that they, the illegals, are incapable of intelligent and civil norms.

...Republican Gov. Rick Perry earned applause from the crowd [at a meeting of the Texas Border Coalition] when he said strategic fencing along the border makes sense but the idea of a complete wall or fence is “preposterous.”

Instead, he wants the federal government to establish a guest-worker program that will allow the government to track workers, he said.

...Perry was asked after his speech whether it was a good or bad idea to do away with citizenship as a birthright [via proposed Texas legislation].

“I think any of those types of legislation that create divisions are bad,” he said. “We need to look at ways to be bringing people together rather than driving wedges between them.”
That failure, combined with Perry’s comments that the U.S.-Mexico border fence was “idiocy” and that efforts to deny citizenship to U.S.-born children of illegal immigrants are “divisive,” have rung in the ears of anti-illegal immigration conservatives.

If we do not control illegal immigration, I guarantee this country is gone. Rick Perry is another George W. Bush on Illegal Immigration.

Perry has said that the Border Fence is Stupid,

Perry has said that he is against denying citizenship to baby’s born in the U.S. of illegan immigrants,

Perry is for providing in-state tuition benefits to children of illegal immigrants. (That is an incentive for the Mexican illegals to keep their children in school in Texas, knowing that they will get what only U.S. Citizens in Texas receive)

We had George W. Bush, who was awful on illegal immigration, we do not need George W. Bush Jr., or Rick Perry.

Just because we want to get rid of Obama, does not mean we need to elect a loser on illegal immigration, an issue, as important as the economy.

We don’t get tough on Illegal Immigration, we are done as a country.

Rick Perry will never get my vote, because of his weakness on illegal immigration and I am an American of Hispanic Heritage.

Hey 9...

I don't understand all this fuss about someone who "isn't running".

Perry folks should be really worried about Bachmann. Well actually Rollins. Bachmann needs big donor dollars. Perry (in Bachmann's view) stands between her and those dollars. We all should understand that there is no depth to which Mr. Ed will not stoop to promote his candidate (and by extension himself).

Within a month the Republican primary is going to be a blood bath thanks to Mr. Ed. As a result we will get a real glimpse into the soul of his boss.

Popcorn please.

I agree, I like Palin, but she has weaknesses.

What really gives me the creeps is the questioning she-can-do-no-wrong- attitude of her supporters. Sort of like Ron Paul or Obama Supporters.

Experience.

He's pro life

Pro gun

pro military

pro low taxes

pro business

He may not be Santorum pure (who I like) but he's governed a state of 25 million for 10 years and has dealt with every problem America now faces and we've (Texas) come out on top.

McGruff, I live in Texas and have for over close to 35 years. I was against the TTC but I understand the need for something like it.

Try driving from Dallas to Austin, San Antonio or even Houston. A 3-4 hour trip turns into rush hour.

The Spanish company recently bought Zachry which is a Houston based road construction company. Like Haliburton ownes Brown and Root.

I was against it because of the eminent domain factor.

Look Normy,

If we don’t get tough on Illegal Immigration, the U.S.A. is going by way of California, Bankrupt!!!!!!

Perry is a George W. Bush Clone on Illegal Immigration, not wanting to offend the Mexican Government.

Perry has positives, no doubt, just like Bush did, but his weakness on an important issue like Illegal Immigration eliminates him from the field.

If we don’t control Illegal Immigration, in 20 years Texas will be like Miami, where if you don’t speak Spanish you don’t get a job, you are screwed.

I speak Spanish and am Bilingual and have Mexican Friends, and I know that if Illegal Immigration is not stopped in the next couple of years, you can kiss our great American Heritage Good-bye.

Perry should never get the GOP Nomination because he is weak on Illegal Immigration.

Get It.

Fair enough.

I'm not a big fan, but I will support him for one reason and one reason only....get that slug outta the white house.

Hopefully we can take the senate and keep the house of reps, then we can put pressure on the president to lean more conservative on issues like the border security, pro-American trade negotiations, enforcing the laws already on the books in regards to illegal immigrants.

It clearly is not Perry. He will destroy this country.

He might improve the economy, but, his weakness on Illegal Immigration will ruin this country.

Bachmann, and Palin are the best that I have heard that are running or could run for the GOP Nomination.

I am not sure of Santorum’s views on the subject.

On the issue of immigration, legal and illegal, I believe Palin and Perry are on the same page.
What separates the two is:

Achievement: Palin, in her brief stint as a governor, arguably accomplished some good things.
On the other hand, un der Rick Perry's stewardship Texas has been the leader in job creation and job growth in the entire country for the last several years.
Texas under Perry will be much scrutinized now that he as declared and we all learn together what has occurred to make the Lone Star State numero uno amongst people relocating.
And if Palin declares her 1/2 term will be dissected too.

Character: Scratch the veneer and below it might be found a somewhat stark difference between the Perry's and the Palin's.
You know, after Governor Perry's speech Saturday and his lovely family joined him on stage a feeling of relief came over me. Why? Because there was no 'Levi', and the Governor's daughter, Sydney, certainly wasn't pregnant, (and I highly doubt she be 'sharing a house' with two black guys like Bristol will soon do), the Governor's son was there with his pretty, genteel, young wife. and what is it about Texan women that they make such resplendent First Ladies? Anita Perry truly fits this description.

Look at this image -

It is Sydney Perry with her daddy, Governor Rick Perry.
Now do this: suspend reality for a minute, strain your imagination and try to envision Rick Perry extorting his supporters, forcing them to buy a book his daughter had (ghost)written, in order to then buy his book or get his autograph.
Can't do it, can you? Hell no you can't because such behavior would be unthinkable as well as unacceptable to Rick Perry!

"PALIN: People mock the idea of a fence. What’s wrong with building a fence? Yes, let’s physically secure the border."

I'm still waiting for some reporter to ask the President why he doesn't tear down the White House fence and replace it with a "virtual fence," since a physical fence acts as a barrier between people and is unnecessary. It would provide a much more "open" feeling and it would be easier to cut the grass.

Here is my problem, Palin never had to deal with this issue from a practical level and she has been on both sides of this fence. Once she sees the real problem, who knows which way she will turn? Plus I don't know why she is accepted by some as the heir apparent when she governed a state of 770,000 for 2.5 years.

I am looking at the total package and aside from beauty and some nice libertarian/conservative speeches, her actions don't speak very loud for her governing style.

Look if say for the sake of argument Alaska sends in 10 billion to the feds in taxes and then gets back 18 billion. Then Alaska taxes the oil companies to further pad the bank account, it seems a pretty easy task to balance the budget.

In Texas, say Texas send in 10 billion but gets back 9.4 billion and has to use some that money to secure a 1,200 mile border with Mexico yet still balances it's budget without a state income tax. That speaks volumes to me.

You may look like a genius if we both make 1000 a week but you get an extra 800 dollar bonus. You could really balance your household budget and make me look bad, but it would be apples to oranges.

My post points out how Bush 2 had ten years to take on illegal immigration in a border state and did nothing but pander.

Bush 2 will do the same thing as president if you are dumb enough to elect him, just like Bush 1.

Palin understands the problems and knows how to get results instead of talking BS for ten years.

We know Perry’s views on Illegal Immigration and they are awful. I don’t care that he has had to deal with the Mexican Border.

We know how he will govern if elected President, on Illegal Immigration, just like GWB.

We KNOW what Bush 2 would do. He’ll do his master’s bidding and pass the DREAM act and an amnesty. He will then tell you to your face that it’s not amnesty because they have to pay a fine.

Just like Bush 1.

Now can we start concentrating on beating Obama instead of projecting our own beliefs onto a candidate? Perry is the man to back as the over all best candidate.

Are you saying Perry is the man to back because both he and Palin are soft on criminal invaders? What about backing a candidate who believes in the sovereignty of our Country, or is that asking too much?

"This is out just to prove the Palin supporters support her because they instinctively like her and not because of her Conservative purity."

Unlike Rick Perry?? Who thinks that "...the Arizona immigration law is not the best thing for Texas....".

You mean THAT purveyor of "weasel-words"??

I disagree with Palin on part of this issue, but that doesn't make her any the less the best potential candidate.

My own take is that those who are here illegally, who have worked hard and "kept their noses clean", should be able to APPLY for PERMANENT "legal residency".....but NOT citizenship. The very fact that they came here in violation of our laws means they should NEVER be allowed to determine what those laws should be. "Legal residency" with NO "path to citizenship" fulfills the "compassion" aspect nicely.

I don't think either. I don't know why a few of her supporters think it's better to say she was misleading people than to admit that her views on everything aren't exactly the same as their view.

I know that whatever candidate I end up voting for, they won't have the same views as I do on every subject. But it seems to me that too many times a few palin supporters here are willing to twist her words to their opinion, or to say she wasn't telling the truth, or that she was forced to act out of loyalty or obligation against what was best for the country.

I choose to believe Sarah Palin when she says something.

I read throught the NumbersUSA web page.

Bachmann by far looks the best right now. Palin has not commented, according to NumbersUSA, on 8 out of 12 of their questions, the highest of any candidate or potential candidate.

If Palin gets in the race, and on the 8 out 12 remaining questions they put up, she does not improve, then she can be eliminated like Perry.

This is one web page and this is what they said about Perry’s comments:

End Birthright Citizenship
Gov. Perry has made no statements regarding the ending of Birthright Citizenship.

Perry has commented on “Ending Birthright Citizenship”, and Perry said it was divisive.

So, when NumbersUsa finally gets those comments by Perry, he will have a guaranteed “F”, along with Ron Paul.

Perry is elimintated from GOP Contention because of what we know about him, and his comments, and in-state tuitions law passed and signed by him.

Palin is a question mark right now, on illegal immigration.

You have to make choices. Dallas gets hit by a terror strike, killing Children, from narcos or muslim terrorists sneaking across the Rio Grande, and everyone in Texas will be asking for the Fence or a Militarized Border.

Without the fence, you are looking at 10 maybe 15,000 National Guardsmen on the border to stop the flow.

Bush, and Perry, would not, and will not want to militarize the border and offend the Mexicans.

So, what will happen to the Texas Border with Mexico, if Perry becomes President. Nothing, just a token increase in Border Agents, with drugs, illegal immigrants, and potentially muslim terrorists crossing the borden at will.

Perry is not the answer.

Perry is for providing in-state tuition benefits to children of illegal immigrants. (That is an incentive for the Mexican illegals to keep their children in school in Texas, knowing that they will get what only U.S. Citizens in Texas receive)

We had George W. Bush, who was awful on illegal immigration, we do not need George W. Bush Jr., or Rick Perry.

Just because we want to get rid of Obama, does not mean we need to elect a loser on illegal immigration, an issue, as important as the economy.

We don’t get tough on Illegal Immigration, we are done as a country.

I read throught the NumbersUSA web page.

Bachmann by far looks the best right now. Palin has not commented, according to NumbersUSA, on 8 out of 12 of their questions, the highest of any candidate or potential candidate.

If Palin gets in the race, and on the 8 out 12 remaining questions they put up, she does not improve, then she can be eliminated like Perry.

This is one web page and this is what they said about Perry’s comments:

End Birthright Citizenship
Gov. Perry has made no statements regarding the ending of Birthright Citizenship.

Perry has commented on “Ending Birthright Citizenship”, and Perry said it was divisive.

So, when NumbersUsa finally gets those comments by Perry, he will have a guaranteed “F”, along with Ron Paul.

Perry is elimintated from GOP Contention because of what we know about him, and his comments, and in-state tuitions law passed and signed by him.

Palin is a question mark right now, on illegal immigration.
