Here We Go Again

Seems the news reports were incorrect on the Massachusetts sanctuary cities. A “rival campaign” says there were not three, but four, sanctuary cities in Massachusetts during Romney’s tenure. Brookline Massachusetts passed a resolution declaring itself a sanctuary and, and among other things, rejecting the use of the term “illegal” and calling on the Department of Homeland Security to “declare a moratorium on immigrant raids, at least until the US Congress comes to an agreement on comprehensive immigration reform, so that the debate can be carried out in good faith rather than against a backdrop of fear, repression and intimidation.” Once again, state aid to this city was not affected nor is there any indication Romney expressed his displeasure with Brookline’s actions at the time. As I have said before, I think this sanctuary city tactic has not been the most fruitful for the Romney camp and they would have done better to put out their own plan or to focus on the arguments Phil has addressed. In the age of google and YouTube, casting about in opponents’ records is a risky proposition especially for a candidate who got elected and had to govern in a very liberal state.
