Immigration and New Poll
by

The Rudy campaign put out a fact sheet detailing his past statements and actions on immigration. It is a misnomer to say New York was a “sanctuary city” for illegal aliens. Several Massachusetts cities — Orleans, Somerville and Cambridge — did declare themselves as such while Romney was Governor. It appears Rudy, like all mayors, coped as best he could with the influx of illegals while he was also dealing with crime and other metropolitan issues. Did he publicly call on the Feds to do more? It seems so. As previously posted, Romney did not appear to do anything about his true sanctuary cities and in fact increased state funding for them. As for Romney’s “deputizing” of state troopers he did sign on to a joint cooperation and training plan with the Feds just as he was leaving office — in December of 2006. (His Democratic successor cancelled the agreement.)

Meanwhile, further evidence, Phil, for your theory that Fred missed his window of opportunity. A new CBS poll has Rudy at 38%, up 5 pts. from the last poll, and Fred Thompson at 18%, down 7 from the last poll. Romney shows movement, up 5 pts to 13%.
