Schneider: Big points for Romney on immigration

Romney’s response scores big points with conservatives – and with a lot of Americans who aren’t conservative.

Californians do have a very mixed view of illegal immigration – they want it stopped, but they know people who are here illegally, and don’t want to see punitive measures.

But very few Hispanics vote in the Republican primary here. So there’s no significant Latino vote for him to worry about – at least for now.

    Romney is the only conservative that has the experience vision and values to make things happen in the White House!

    In other words, a non-issue for a primary. Should be revisited in October.

    Unfortunately, it appears as though this is the only issue on which Romney comes across as the victor.

    So what's this. . . Romney, McCain & Huckabee get to answer two questions each time Ron Paul answers one? - blatently ignoring him . . . that is very disrespectful. Don't think the American people don't recognize that.

    Why is noone asking the candidates about what should be done with respect to illegal immigrants who have minor children who are US citizens because they were born here? Should the children who are citizens be forced to leave with their illegal parents, should the families be split up or what?

    How did Ron Paul become the invisible candidate when the media purposely cut him off? Why doesn't Mr. Schneider make any mention of this?!
