Coffee with Supporters at the Embassy Suites in Des Moines

After the presidential forum at Hy-vee Hall -- and a quick bite to eat, I headed over with The Tanc to the Embassy Suites in downtown Des Moines. Supporters showed up for some casual chatting and coffee with Tancredo.

While Tancredo was rousing the crowds in Iowa, Clinton and Obama were at a forum hosted by the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials. Both voted for amnesty.

Clinton said "the United States must find a way to tighten border security while giving undocumented workers a sensible way to become legal workers even if they lack the high-tech skills favored for visa applications." (Monday both Clinton's will be in Iowa together for rallies, according to the Washington Post.)

Obama said "I want my daughters to be raised in a community in which all people, and not just some, are considered part of the American family."


I read the article at the link. It sounds to me as though Senator Clinton hopes to win all the votes by playing on both sides of the issue. Which for me means that she is dancing around the subject. If she's ever given the chance, I believe she would take the easiest way out, which more than likely would be some sort of amnesty plan. As for Senator Obama, once again he has made a perfectly kind, heartfelt and enveloping statement. But also once again, it's a statement which doesn't outline any kind of solution to any part of the problem we're having with immigration. The only thing I can take from his statement is that he would support a "no borders" policy for America, along with granting U.S. citizenship to everyone on earth.
