Immigration a Head of State Test for Mittens

According to The Wall Street Journal, President Obama is trying to put a gap between his approach to immigration policy and that of Governor Romney. If you subscribe, you can see the article here.

The immigration issue is a good head of state test for Mitt Romney. It is part economic and part cultural. If too many immigrants are sent home, cheap labor becomes higher cost labor and higher costs will trickle into the price of fast food hamburgers and hotel rooms. A significant number of Americans are threatened by brown skinned people who may not speak enough good English.

“Your mission, Mittens, is to craft an immigration policy somewhere between deporting 12 million undocumented immigrants and giving amnesty to 12 million undocumented immigrants. Good luck. Should you or any member of your Incorrigible GOP Force be found politically inept, America will disavow you. Good luck, Mr. Romney.” (insert theme from Mission: Impossible)

    Alton, that was really great!!! There’s nothing like a little humor to lighten things up, although what you wrote clearly characterizes the dilemma the GOP (and the Democrats, for that matter) face on immigration.
