Tancredo withdraws from Presidential race, what impact will his endorsement of Mitt “Anchor baby” Romney have?

December 21st, 2007 · 2 Comments

Tom Tancredo, the Republican immigration issue candidate, has dropped out of the race for the presidency, but before leaving the stage, he endorsed Mitt “anchor baby” Romney. We have discussed what a Mitt Romney presidency might mean for the Latinos and his family history in Mexico before, and Mario at Nuestra Voice has raised the very valid point that Mitt Romney is an anchor baby. For someone who touts his “Christian” faith and family values, Romney certainly doesn’t have a problem pointing fingers at immigrants coming into this country seeking work. I wonder what he would say if the immigrants who have been coming into the US over the course of the last few years cited religious persecution or some other faith based reason for entering the US. Do you think he would have a little more compassion? After all, his family sought sanctuary in Mexico to practice polygamy without much incident.

I hope that Tom Tancredo doesn’t fade away. If he actively campaigns for Mitt Romney, we will really get to witness the hypocrisy in the immigration debate. Romney has utilized businesses that employ undocumented workers in the past, and I wouldn’t be surprised if some of the companies that his millions of dollars are invested in profit from illegal labor.

    Instead of seeking alternative paths to lead America past nearly eight years of deficit spending, the conitnued rape of the U.S. taxpayer, and further enriching the top 1% of this country, GOP candidates can only think of pandering to small-minded racist religious groups, further inciting their fears of being forced to maybe encounter Latino immigrants at the grocery store, or the dreaded idea of having to maybe learn another language. Have you forgotten what these people did to women during the Salem Witch trials? What these people did to the Native Americans? How they rationalized the institution of slavery? How they pushed Jim Crow laws onto the mainstream. Do you really think Mitt Romney is going to speak for all of America? Wake up!

    Beware of the racist calling you a racist. Read the above post and realize this is the same person who is pushing the “ALL LATIN AGENDA”. Why should I HAVE to learn another language? Because YOU don’t want to learn another one?
