I have not yet come to any final conclusion on whom I shall support in the GOP primaries next year. Gingrich is very high on my list, as I have mentioned before. I recently visited the website of Mitt Romney and was pleasantly surprised to read his stance on immigration. As I have previously posted
I believe that we do not allow enough legal immigration. The number currently stands around 1 million a year. Sure, a million is a big number, but in a country of nearly 300 million, it's one-third of one percent. Certainly, this number could easily be increased to, say, 3 million. Coupled with a prevention of illegal border crossing, I think this would represent a fair and compassionate program.Romney seems to take a similar stance
--which I have not seen in any other candidate, congressman, or pundit--that our country would benefit by increasing the number of immigrants we allow to enter.
We need to make America more attractive for legal immigrants -- for citizens -- and less attractive for illegal immigrants. I want to see more immigration in our country, but more legal immigration and less illegal immigration.
I have to say, Romney is becoming more and more appealing to me.
