GOP Debate Features Brawl over Immigration and Health Care – As the Republican primary in Florida draws nearer, Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich continued to trade blows over whose stance on immigration was more extreme. “In the last debate before Florida Republicans cast ballots in Tuesday’s primary, the remaining four candidates–Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, and Rick Santorum–vying for the GOP presidential nomination, attacked each other as much as President Obama on immigration, housing, foreign policy, trade with Latin America, health care, and job creation.”

Romney assures Florida’s Hispanic voters the GOP isn’t ‘anti-immigrant’ as primary day nears At last nights debate,when the two candidates where not fighting each other, they were trying desperately to mask the Republican parties recent anti-immigrant rhetoric: “Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney pitched their ideas for reforming immigration law and pushing democracy into Cuba and across Latin America as the Republican presidential candidates vied for Hispanic votes Friday, entering the final, frenzied weekend before Florida’s primary. “We are not anti-immigrant, we are not anti-immigration” Romney said to applause, suggesting the news media had unfairly tarnished his party’s reputation among Hispanics.

  1. Wow, this piece of writing is good, my sister is analyzing these kinds of things, thus I am going to let know her.

    Arrchie – "Illegals", that csersod our borders without going through the immigration process is breaking the law. Period. If that is a "criminal" or "civil" offence really doesn't matter. They're violating our laws and must be prosecuted under the "letter of the law". Your reply sounds like Bill Clinton splitting heirs with the meaning of the word "is".
