    Latino Mormons Speak Out Against Mitt Romney on Immigration | Fox News Latino

    While stressing the Mormon faith's historic connection to converting immigrants, Latino Mormons point directly to immigration stories in the Book of Mormon and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' recent statements against policies targeting immigrants. They also view Romney's stance against proposals giving undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship as hypocritical since Romney's great-grandfather, Miles Park Romney, who had five wives and 30 children, sought refuge in Mexico after passage of an 1882 law that barred polygamy.

    Saw this the other day.

    First, this is one persons opinion. Not Latinos in general.

    Second, Mormons believe in obeying and sustaining the law. Which includes immigration processes.

    Third, Romney isn't against immigration. only illegal immigration. As anyone who doesn't want to see people exploited should be.

    It seems that Marco Rubio was a Mormon before converting to Catholic.

    And he usually attends a Baptist church. Throw in a yarmulke and an AK-47 and you've got yourself a religious smorgasbord herpderp.

    Another ignorant rant comparing illegal aliens with immigrants. Most Hispanics have somebody in their family who is or was a illegal alien so they try to make the comparison. It won't work. People know the difference.

    Let's just abolish the US-Mexican border completely. All Mexicans can start paying American taxes that way. And the US Military can destroy the cartels, instead of messing around the Middle East.

    All Americans, Latinos included, who support President Obama are dooming themselves to massive unemployment and poverty.
