Rick and Mitt Give Latinos a Reason to Turn Out for Obama in November
Mitt Romney didn't just praise Arizona's draconian immigration law during Wednesday night's GOP debate. He said it was a model for the country.
"I think you see a model in Arizona," Romney told CNN debate moderator John King, listing off an employment verification system, a border fence, and increasing the number of border patrol agents as policies he'd pursue as president. "You do that, and just as Arizona is finding out, you can stop illegal immigration." As my colleague Tim Murphy noted, current top Not Romney contender Rick Santorum didn't just endorse Arizona-style immigration policy, he went as far as to praise Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, whom the Justice Department recently accused of violating the civil rights of Arizona residents.
