Romney's against it.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney also blasted the immigration agreement:
"I strongly oppose todays bill going through the Senate. It is the wrong approach. Any legislation that allows illegal immigrants to stay in the country indefinitely, as the new Z-Visa does, is a form of amnesty. That is unfair to the millions of people who have applied to legally immigrate to the U.S."
That’s now. He was singing a different not long ago. I will find it.
Of course you will argue he was talking about the 2005 McCain-Kennedy, not the identical 2007 version.
Hmm, according to Romney's words in a 2005 Boston Globe interview, "That's very different than amnesty, where you literally say, 'OK, everybody here gets to stay,' " Romney said in the interview. "It's saying you could work your way into becoming a legal resident of the country by working here without taking benefits and then applying and then paying a fine."
The article goes on: Romney did not specifically endorse McCain's bill, saying he had not yet formulated a full position on immigration. But he did speak approvingly of efforts by McCain and Bush to solve the nation's immigration crisis, calling them "reasonable proposals."
Seems like he was for it before he was against it. That seems to happen often with Massachusetts politicians...
All the clauses put in this amnesty bill mean nothing because they won’t be enforced...We have been betrayed by our politicians since 1965..
Government agencies will be created under Immigration Reform..These agencies will be staffed and run by the people who were illegal or by Latinos, Chicana, Hispanic,, who still talk with heavy accents yet are legal.
Let’s face it, we have been sold out by liberal democratic politicians who have socially engineered our country to resemble a Bananna republic....it’s all for votes.
The ding bat California politicians sold out California and now they are in key positions in Washington DC...Get used to socialism or worse...
All the leaders with BALLS have been emasculated by political correctness, diversity, and gender....
When the European American becomes the minority in this country you will see persecution. Minority status and the perks that go with it will never be given to European American males...They are the bad guys....
Here’s Romney’s take in 2005.
