Both favor draconian anti-immigrant SB 1070 laws. Both have ties to Kris Kobach who supports white nationalist views imposed by John Tanton and NumbersUSA. Both are members of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) a/k/a Mormon Church, yet they will not support the the UTAH COMPACT which is modeled after the Mayflower Compact. Mitt Romney should have done the right thing and supported the Utah Compact from the beginning. He promised to veto the DREAM Act and committed the ultimate Latino sin when he said that. We praise the LDS Church for taking a lead on the Utah Compact and it is an absolute travesty that Romney will not do the right and compassionate thing.
When will these Republicans learn that extremism never pays?
