Can Republicans go back to this type of rhetoric when addressing the issue of undocumented immigrants? I’m glad Bush Sr. said immigrants are “really honorable, decent, family loving people” and Reagan said undocumented immigrants should have a work permit where they pay taxes and can cross the border freely. I’m tired of all the racist immigrant bashing coming from current politicians.
Now compare these responses to the responses given during the most recent debates between Republican presidential candidates. Bush Sr. and Reagan wouldn’t have even made it to the nationally televised debates.
