GOP Debate Ignores Immigration

Bookmark and Share

It's way early in the political season and already they're running debates. It's kind of neat to have so many people up there at once, but at the same time it is so fragmented with so many up there that you really can't get to the heart of the issues, they just get glossed over.

Lonewacko has a nice roundup of immigration related questions, which were unsurprisingly weak as I saw it.

Two puffball questions on immigration so far: asking John McCain whether he's like to see Tom Tancredo heading up the INS (an agency that hasn't existed for four years), and asking all of them whether they would change the Constitution to allow Arnold Schwarzenegger to become president.


I note also that none of the several tough immigration questions I submitted were asked and, in fact, none of the second round questions concerned immigration matters. Yet, that's where almost all of the candidates are weakest, and discussing that topic would have revealed that Giuliani, McCain, Brownback, Huckabee, and most likely Romney are not qualified to be president. Instead, all we got was fluff.

Tom Tancredo did try to direct the conversation there on several occassions and Duncan Hunter brought up the border fence, but others quickly moved discussion away from there.

Don't expect immigration to ever truly be addressed until the numbers are widdled down and even then the questions submitted regarding immigration are likely to be ignored, since the issue holds no political benefit to either party.

Of course some would say they should be concerned because of the demands of the American people, but most of them could give two craps about us.

Yes I caught that error by Matthews (calling ICE, INS). I think Tancredo missed an opportunity by not answering something like - "Senator McCain couldn't feel comfortable about me heading up the INS since it hasn't existed for a few years. Is all your knowledge of immigration that deficient?"

Haha Ray, I would have paid money to watch that!
