Yesterday California Congressman Xavier Becerra said that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney holds the most extreme view on immigration of any presidential candidate in recent history. In a statement he said:
The announcement that former Governor Pete Wilson endorsed Mitt Romney for President and will serve as an honorary co-chair of his campaign in California seals the deal: Mitt Romney is locked into his far-right positions and would be the most extreme presidential nominee of our time on immigration.
From calling the DREAM Act a hand-out and vowing to veto it, to campaigning with Kris Kobach, the architect of Arizona and Alabama’s anti-immigrant laws, to stating that all undocumented immigrants should “self-deport,” Mitt Romney has broadcast an unmistakable message of what he thinks of Latinos.
