Rudy takes question about amnesty and says this proves his point on failure of Feds to deport illegals. Physical fence and technological fence,which didn’t have 10 or 20 years ago, and tamper proof cards. Then we can have legal immigration. McCain says “not amnesty” because his bill required fines and return to their home country among other things. Everytime he goes back to this is lost time and votes for him. Praising greencard holder who fight. Romeny says the “Z” visa allowed everyone to stay and that was amnesty. Back to sanctuary cities as magnets(this is the problem?) and also employers who hire illegals. Back to hitting Giuliani on welcoming illegals.
Sen. Craig question: Oh Brownback is here. Makes family values pitch. Hunter gets a chance too. This seems like a good moment for a hand raise( a tap?) and move on.
How allow abortion in some states asked of Romney if it is murder? Says not where the country is now and this is our aspiration. Is a taking of a human life. Says we have to have concern for the mother and change hearts and minds. Very nicely done. Huckabee avoids bait to take on Rudy and makes his whole life pitch.
Giuliani asked about Fred’s claim Va Tech students should have been allowed to own guns and that he didn’t feel safe in NY. Giuliani knocks out of ball park on crime–beginning with jab that “FBI would disagree.” States have right to decide gun laws and people have a right to own guns. Focus of our laws should be on criminals.
