Jose Hernandez, A Former Astronaut, Launches Congressional Bid At Obama's Urging

Commented Oct 11, 2011 at 15:36:22 in Politics

“His parents were undocumented immigrants from Mexico???? The GOP and TeaPartiers will be all over his parents' green card, and most likely brand him as illegal! Because Jose: you may be a rocket scientist honey, but common sense and politics don't go together! They'll railroad you just like they've been doing to Obama.

The only thing going in his favor is that the Hispanic population is rapidly growing in the US. Which kinda explains the latest toughening of immigration laws! The population growth must be stopped! Only a percentage of "brown" people allowed!”

“There's been a correction: His parents were here LEGALLY when he was born:

CORRECTION: A previous version of this article stated that Hernandez's parents were undocumented immigrants from Mexico, when in fact, they immigrated to the United States legally. We sincerely regret the error.”

“He was born in California and is an American citizen. It was his parents who are undocumented unless they went through the Amnesty Program in 1986.”

“From the apparent chronology, he was born in 1962, the parents were covered by the Reagan-era amnesty. If you know California, that district has a demographic that favors him, especially since he's a homeboy.”

“Whatever happened to "freedom of speech"????? Let me know people!! Cuz my parents brought me from Cuba at the ripe age of 9, so that I could enjoy the freedom to express myself. The "one" of many things we immigrants looooove about this country!”

“True.... but free speech by companies that profit from misleading Young Americans will never be "FREE"”

“You are talking of course about the Mayor's freedom of speech? Does only Nike have that right?”
