Dream Act supporters endorse Mitt Romney, who's mum on immigration in Miami

Mitt Romney traveled to the Florida county with the largest number of immigrants and touted the endorsements of three Cuban-American Republicans who crossed party lines to support the pro-immigrant Dream Act.

But not one word was specifically said about immigration — one of the most high-profile issue in Repubulican politics — at the endorsement event featuring U.S. Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Mario Diaz Balart and former Congressman Lincoln Diaz Balart.

In the Cuban-American community, few politicians carry such weight as “the three amigos,” as Ros-Lehtinen calls them. Lincoln Diaz-Balart is also popular with Nicaraguans and Haitians, who received amnesty under two bills he pushed through Congress in the late 1990s.

Nowadays “amnesty” is a bad word in Republican primary politics. Romney says he’s against the Dream Act, which provides a pathway to citizenship to some immigrants, and has inveighed against other “magnets” that lead people to illegally enter or stay in the United States.

After the event, all three Hispanic leaders acknowledged they disagree with Romney on immigration. But they said he is the best candidate in the crowded field — though former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is a friend who has more consistently backed their immigration approach.

“When you analyze in depth all of the candidates’ positions, there’s not the difference that some of you in the media are pointing to,” said Lincoln Diaz-Balart. “I differ with Gov. Romney on his approach and priorities with regard to immigration.”

How about processing immigrant applications that have legal path that would be an interesting idea... Currently no one gets processed taking fees works great and making people jump through a lifetime of tiny teeny hoops for fun that works great too but finalizing in a humane time frame an application that never happens anymore.

Republicans, like democrats before them, have decided the Rule of Law is passe when applied to illegal aliens......Instead....they choose the Rule of Lawlessness.

Romney should make it a Hispanic campaign in Florida and sign up the Florida Hispanic Legislative Caucus........


Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.

The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.

Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

doesn't make sense. why endorse if you don't have an agreement or clear understanding of where the Romney is on issues key the the community like immigration and Cuba. what would Romney do different on Cuba? How can you go to Miami and campaign without talking about Cuba? is the community getting soft?
and what about Rivera -- he didn't appear with Romney. Very interesting. at least he's an independent thinker.

Mittens (hell of a sissy name) Romney has employed about 20 Zionist JEWS to be his advisors.

ALL of these JEWS are pro Israel (read: they lobby the US government to spend BILLIONS on Middle East wars, mostly to defend Israel).

US soldiers ARE DYING IN THE MIDDLE EAST defending Israel.


If you love America, vote PAUL.


1. Paul will shut down the Federal Reserve system.
It is NOT Federal. It is A PRIVATE BANK.
It is NOT a reserve. It has NO RESERVES.
It is NOT a system. It is A CRIME SYNDICATE.
It is owned and run by the Rothschilds, Morgans, Rockefellers, Schiffs, Warburgs etc.

2. Paul wants to stop Middle East wars.
JEWS control the US foreign policy (AIPAC, NORPAC, ADL, SPLC, Hudson Institute etc. are all Jewish lobby groups), and lobby the US government (with help from their Zionist Fed buddies) to spend TRILLION$ in the Middle East defending ISRAELS interests.

3. JEWS own most mainstream media.
They don't give Paul much airtime because HIS POLICIES ARE ANTI-ISRAEL AND ANTI-FED (ie. anti-Jewish).
