A constant in the decade long Presidential campaign of Mitt Romney, maybe the only constant has been his position of immigration. Mr. Romney had adopted the hardest of hardline positions. He thinks all illegal immigrants, regardless of the facts and circumstances, even if they are babies or children should be hunted down relentlessly, denied any and all opportunity in the Unites States and either forcibly sent back to their native land or made to ‘self deport’.
But Mr. Romney has had to appear before a convention of Latino government officials and to the surprise of only Haley Smoot, who has spent the last 12 years on Mars, Mr. Romney suddenly became a fan of Latino’s and of easier stances on immigration.
Mitt Romney, who spent months attacking Republican primary rivals for being soft on illegal immigration, called Thursday for loosening some immigration restrictions and reiterated a proposal for a path to legal status for some in the United States illegally who have served in the military.
Based on the fact that Mr. Romney has now achieved heights of pandering and levels of inconsistency only dreamed about by mere mortals, this Forum is now promoting the use of two new terms in the official English language.
