He will get around to embracing his Latino heritage in the general. Too busy appealing to the the right wing extremists now. Moderate Mitt will appear later in the show to pander to Latino voters and independents.
11:54 PM on 01/18/2012
Doubt it, I think Obama's strategy has worked out better, and in the states like CA, TX, NY, and FL it depends on Latino voters they will abstain or vote for Obama, not because they liked his presidency, but because they detest the Republican rhetoric. For those first, second, even third generation immigrants from anywhere, it sounds racist no matter how you put it.

The lack of empathy on this tread is sickening. These are two hard working kids who did not choose their situation. We were built on the backs of hardworking immigrants like these, but some choose to neglect that.

Blame your mother and her ancestors as well. Aren't we all immigrants, don't get me started on who's "legal" or "Illegal". We all came from somewhere, blaming anybody isn't helping out your cause.

i agree....it's NOT these young people's faults that they were LIED to by their parents....people they thought, they could TRUST.......however, illegals have been taking jobs from those who were born in america.......my question to the young people ,like the ones in this story is: what have you DONE to FIX the mess your parents have caused you?.....have you TRIED to get your green cards?

i'm NOT sure, what the answer is to this.....but, for someone running for the PRESIDENT OF THE USA to turn away and be RUDE to people.....is NOT who should be the president.

These two grew up here and are part of our system. The way I see it, they are just as American as me. They work hard, let them in. The whole "job stealing" mantra is a myth, look at Georgia and Alabama. They work jobs that no American wants to work.
02:10 PM on 01/19/2012
They "undocumented" "Illegal" Immigrants. Cannot work, therefore..they aren't taking your jobs, they are finding what they can. There are plenty of jobs out there. I will leave it at that...Very appalling to hear all this.

He was brought here when he was 1 y.o.

Do you think he could really fit into S. Korean culture at this point?

He's been here his whole life. He's no less American than you or I; he just doesn't have the paperwork.

So conversely a 32 year old Korean shouldn't be allowed to legally immigrate to the US because they couldn't fit in.

In fact no adult should be allowed to immigrate to any country because obviously by adulthood nobody would be able to fit into another country.
02:12 PM on 01/19/2012
That's what's extremely sad about all this..all because of a piece of paper with writing saying who we are, where we are from, whatever else there is. Our identity is taken for granted, there's no trust. So, it's really really lame.

(R) Ronald Reagan granted FREE U.S. Citizenship to all illegals in the USA on November 6, 1986

That was 25 years, 2 months, 12 days ago

That puts a new spin on his story. If he lived here since age 1, why wasn't he legalized at age 7 in the 1986 amnesty? Mom just didn't feel like filing the paperwork to get citizenship for herself and her son? I seriously doubt it.

This brings up a major problem with the Dream Act. It requires no proof that any of these people have actually lived in the U.S., except that they sign an Affidavit that says they did. They don't have to provide any other proof. No school records, medical records, etc. We're just supposed to take their word for it.
10:38 PM on 01/18/2012
This is obviously skewed, as we do not know for certain that he pulled his hand away because she said she's undocumented.

He should have shaken her hand no matter whether it was for that or not. Even heads of state that are on opposite sides shake hands. His refusal just shows some sort of bigotry, regardless of which kind it is that was his true motivation.
01:25 PM on 01/19/2012
Look, I don't run around calling someone a bigot just because someone perceived that Romney didn't shake this young lady's hand just because of her immigration status.
The difference between heads of state cordially extending their hands and this, is the fact that this young lady was immediately abrasive (apparently). I don't know the guy (Romney) well enough to say that he refused to aknowledge her because he's a bigot. But it is quite obvious because of her own words, that she was out to prove something disregarding civility.
03:33 AM on 01/22/2012
What if he spotted a huge booger on her hand right before the shake? Wouldn't you pull your hand away in such a situation?
12:32 AM on 01/19/2012
Care to offer another explanation?

Maybe he suddenly recognized that she was indeed brown?

No it has not! Obama is now offering all kinds of back door amnesties. Oh, and please don't lay that "Oh, he's deporting so many people" routine on me because it has already been established that the books are being cooked.

Sounds like Lucy came into the country at a younger age, and with just as much paperwork, as Mitt's dad, George.

Would he shake his own father's hand?

I guess it's OK if your family does it, but not if Lucy's family does it.

Hell, George and Mitt's grandfather Gaskell (and their "colony") actually got $100,000 in federal dollars (by Act of Congress) to help them resettle. Gaskell Romney bought a nice house in SLC with his money.

How did she get into the event without legal photo ID?

Rather dangerous situation, I'd say.

While not supporting Obama this time out, I don't want anyone attending his rallies without legal ID.

Is it clear we can have no national security with massive illegal immigration.

I don't blame Mitt Romney for his reaction. At all.
11:48 PM on 01/18/2012
Who told you that she did not have an ID ? you so completely NOT aware of how this system works,......an you keep saying that ignorance of reality is not an excuse. My friend you are ignorant of the reality. Before she overstayed her Visa she could LEGALLY apply to and have an ID or DL. I'm sure you don't know that.

She is a very disrespectful illegal. She kept asking Romney questions, then interrupted every time he tried to answer. Her interview afterward was very arrogant. You pro-Dream Act people think this media propaganda helps you? Please keep up exactly what you are doing. She is the poster child for enforcement.

Of course she was disrespectful! She purposely set him up for her photo op and attempted to make a fool out of him. The real losers from this is "we" the people. She is an illegal immigrant and is not entitled to anything but a K-12 education and emergency medical care as required by law.

You're right, to some extent. She already knew where he stands on the Dream Act, she wasn't there to make friends with him, rather to confront him. Nothing wrong with that. Looks too like his aids saw that before he did and ushered him away from her. As to whether this will make a difference on either side, time will tell.
