I hear ya on illegal immigration. It is my one point of disagreement that I’m aware of with Palin—and the one point by which she doesn’t hold the country’s majority position.
I’m no fan of affirmative action or set-asides either.
So far Ted Cruz is sounding better on the issues, but he’s coming with zero political record and the question as to being a natural born citizen.
Who do you think we have who’s better?
She really hasn’t said anything on immigration lately. She was fairly supportive back when she was on the ticket with McCain but that was to be expected. The only other time I really heard her mention the issue was in an interview a few years ago with O’Reilly where he kept badgering her about it and she gave a fairly lukewarm reply that just said basically that she didn’t want to deport everyone and and that some deal could probably be worked out.
But it’s never been a major issue for her and she’s never really been out in front pushing it like say McCain, Rubio, Jeb Bush, etc... have.
She was a very strong supoprter of Gov Brewer’s when the AZ law was a big issue.
I’d wait until she says something more recent and detailed on the issue before coming to any firm conclusions.
