Romney’s Hard Line

A principal desire of the NY Times is to change the character of the USA by flooding the nation with legal and illegal immigrants from all over world. The paper hates anyone who wants limits on immigration. A new editorial attacks Romney:
Romney’s Hard Line

Mitt Romney, who used to try to sound like a moderate on immigration, has dropped the pretense. ...

Mr. Romney has flipped and flopped all over on immigration, but in allying himself with Mr. Kobach he has lurched toward the extremist right. “Kris has been a true leader on securing our borders and stopping the flow of illegal immigration into this country,” Mr. Romney said. ...

Mr. Romney once spoke favorably of Senator Edward Kennedy’s bill to legalize millions of the undocumented ...

In this campaign, Mr. Romney has shed all good sense. He recently said he would even veto the Dream Act, which could give legal status to blameless young immigrants who go to college or serve in the military.
Wow, I thought that Romney was soft on immigration. Let's hope that he is not intimidated by the NY Times.

A related op-ed says that we should take the money being spent on border enforcement and spend i it on aid to legal and illegal immigrants instead, so "that no migrant should have to stand in line for an English class." And the NY Times public editor asks:
I’m looking for reader input on whether and when New York Times news reporters should challenge “facts” that are asserted by newsmakers they write about.
He goes on to say that they already have Paul Krugman pointing out Republican lies, and wonders whether all their other reporters should be doing that as well.
