Romney Thinks Immigrants Will Embrace "Self-Deportation"
[I'm in Costa Rica this week at the American Immigration Lawyers Association midyear meeting but will try and keep posting.]
Suddenly, this guy isn't looking like such a winner anymore. People who thought voting for Romney was the ticket to beating Obama are having buyer's remorse. And if Mitt thought he could count on Cuban Republicans in South Florida - a very sizable part of the Florida Republican electorate - he didn't help himself with his odd theory that the solution to the country's immigration problem is to make people miserable enough to want to leave on their own. That, of course, is basically the policy of the last several years and we haven't exactly ended illegal immigration. Lily Gil, an expert on Hispanic politics, pans Romney's proposal on a post on Fox News' Hispanic web site.
