As Rick Santorum has soared to the top tier of GOP candidates for president, I’ve been having to field more questions about him. A lot of these questions are very surprising as they seem to be based on false information. One such example is the claim that Rick Santorum is not conservative enough on immigration issues. These claims generally are based on information cited at Numbers USA. Prudence Paine has taken a close look at Numbers USA and offers an analysis.
I used to think I agreed with NumbersUSA, because I made the improper assumption they were focused on illegal immigration. Now that I know they don’t want any immigrants at all, I can’t support them.
Read the whole thing. This is especially important since the group appears to be airing some troubling ads in South Carolina.
Fox News Latino notes.
Santorum’s immigration policy falls in line with the general, hard-line stance held by most of the GOP hopefuls on the issue.
On the subject of immigration, what we have in Rick Santorum is a very tough stance against illegal immigration but a welcoming attitude toward immigrants who play by the rules.
