McCain: Romney knows self-deportation is not 'the entire answer'
The Hill ^ | May 14, 2012 | Justin Sink

Posted on 05/15/2012 5:42:27 AM PDT by C19fan

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) made an appeal to Hispanic voters Monday, saying that that Mitt Romney would address "the need for immigration reform" and that the presumptive GOP presidential nominee did not think self-deportation was "the entire answer to the issue."

“He is solidly in favor of immigration reform,” said McCain about Romney, in an interview with Fox News Latino. “He knows that there are 12 million people who are in this country illegally. He knows you have to address it. He has also stated, recently, and I’m happy to say, that we have to address it in a humane fashion.”

What is law for America's citizens is not law for illegals (who broke our laws) per our elected and courts. Pandering, by our elected, dismays me to no end. Why give lawbreakers new rules (laws) to remove their crimes? Who benefits next by disobeying the laws of our country? Each of us know the politicians benefit from the laws of our country by exempting themselves. Wonder when the bank robbery lobby will step forth .... oops excuse me ... Wall Street (sorry forgot for a moment).

There yoou have it folks. Rhino Romney cannot make his own statements about his policies if he becomes president. He has to have McLame the liberal say it for him.

Maybe he should consult Dole for his advice too.

All three are losers

Why does McCain think he can speak for Romney at all?

We know Romney has been lying about his position on immigration. He used the lie to beat Perry (and Newt) over the head like a club. He ran as a ‘no amnesty, no way’ candidate in the primary.

Just watch him closely.

Puh-lease. What is McCain's deal with illegal amnesty, no matter what the form? You Arizonans are on the cutting edge of illegal immigration reform. You're even currently battling Holder's Dept. of Injustice. Why do you keep voting this open borders go-along-to-get-along back into office?

I get why we're screwed in California with its fully liberal controlled gov, but you folks are fighting this all the time and yet there is McLame. Really, what does he do for your State?

I think about moving to your State almost every day - I've actually had dreams of it. I can't because of family.

Geeze folks, get rid of that guy next time around. You work so hard to maintain your sovereignty and States' Rights, but yet you keep the antithesis of such in office. I truly don't get it.

"He has also stated, recently, and I’m happy to say, that we have to address it in a humane fashion."

I believe it to be very humane to deport every Mexican to their own country that currently has a higher Gross Domestic Product (GDP). That's exactly why they ARE self-deporting. Let's chip in and send them back and open jobs for American citizens. It doesn't take a rocket surgeon (ha) to realize those open jobs will be worth more (higher salaries) to US citizens. So what if I have to pay a few more cents on goods? If it employs and American, I'll pay it. Think of all the college students we could employ and how much they could spend.

The US citizens who have given up looking for jobs will spend their new found wages on goods and services - much more than their $400 weekly Unemployment Insurance stipend. Of course that depends if the 99 weekers decide they'd rather work and not suck off the system. I doubt that's the majority.

So, if I were to say that chainsaw understands that his opinions are his own and that making non-connected connections serves no useful purpose, the folks could assume that you asked me for my 2 cents worth and that it reflects poorly on you because I made the statement?

So do I.

Mass arrest and forced deportation is the rest of the answer, along with every military person not presently occupied, standing at the southern and northern borders.

Romney should put Sheriff Joe in charge of it. It'd get done.

Deport illegal aliens on contact with LE.
Enforce the law vigorously on employers of illegals.
Strong border security. Build the physical fence and use high-tech surveillance.
Eliminate entitlements for illegal aliens except for true emergency care.
End the “anchor baby” policy.

Worth a repeat..

bump that

Do those things and no one would ever wonder if an hispanic person belonged here or not. Illegal aliens would be so far and few between it would never occur to anyone that someone might be here illegally. It's amazing what enforcing rational laws would do for civil order and peace of mind for all.

“Humane treatment” to me means being humane to AMERICANS! Americans and legal immigrants are they only ones who have rights to stay in this country. It is inhumane towards Americans to leave behind 12 plus million illegals who are breeding pseudo American citizens every day. Each of these anchor babies are in direct competition to our own children. Each anchor baby vote is a vote against our own children and grandchildren. McCain, as usual, does not have an answer to that. McCain must have heard many complaints from people living in Arizona but he callously ignored them. McCain is an anti-American bigot. He is full of false compassion for illegals but he doesn't give a crap about his fellow citizens. This is a very twisted form of compassion if you ask me.

Perry and Newt dug their own graves with their George W. Bush type of insult to the American people. George W. called the minutemen bigots while praising illegals. Perry and Newt were showing the same kind of faux compassion towards the illegals, remember the grandfather comment of Newt’s and the “heartless” comment of Perry. How much do you have to hear? They gave themselves away.

They are terrified of Hispanic voters in a general election where their turnout may be high again like in 2008. Amnesty is the only idea that they can think of, and many flavors of amnesty are popular with Hispanics.

It's clearly a near term strategy much like the Rove/GWB stategies were.

I fully expect Romney to flip back to his real position the first moment he thinks he can get away with it.

I think when they refer to Hispanics they are really talking about Mexicans in particular. Most of the illegals are Mexicans and the very loud and obnoxious illegal alien advocates such as the National Council of LaRaza, LULAC, MECha and MALDEF are run by Mexicans. However, there are other Hispanic ethnicities that have no dog in the hunt such as Puerto Ricans who have no immigration problems, then the Cubans who are legal immgrants and many other types of Hispanics who came here legally. Republicans are being cowed by this supposedly solid Hispanic vote, when there are several kinds of Hispanics. If Republicans were smart they would keep pointing this out thereby splitting up the so-called Hispanic vote.
