Colbert Report On Alabama's Controversial Immigration Bill, The Latino Vote And Mitt Romney's Mexican Roots (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

This week's "The Colbert Report" took on immigration as one of the five hot button issues. Colbert blamed Alabama's controversial immigration bill, which "requires police to check papers during routine traffic stops and makes it a crime to knowingly transport, harbor or rent propert to illegal immigrants," as the reason why Hispanic farm workers are fleeing the state.

In true Colbert humor, the advice to those immigrant workers was as follows, "ohhh boohoo amigos, grow a pair of whatever the Mexican word is for 'cojones.'"

Colbert suggested that "Republicans will need to work hard to capture the Latino vote, instead of their current strategy of capturing Latinos." Wise words, Stephen.

But, Mitt Romney might not have to work that hard for the Hispanic vote because isn't he a little bit, just a bit, Hispanic? After all, papa Romney was born in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.

Colbert jokes, "his father lived in Mexico until he set out to a better life with young Mitt strapped to the roof of his car."
