Comment: Romney Immigration Problem - An opinion piece on Fox News Network argues "Mitt Romney's rigid position on illegal immigration and embrace of Kris Kobach, former law professor and architect of a law to rid Arizona of illegal aliens, may well cost him the fall election even if helps him win the Republican nomination In 2004, George W. Bush captured 44 percent of the Hispanic vote winning handily over John Kerry, but John McCain only gained 31 percent in 2008 and lost to Mr. Obama. Mr. Romney can't win the White House without about 40 percent of the Hispanic vote Americans of all stripes vote for immigration through their decisions about whom they hire to clean their homes and offices, the restaurants they patronize, and the complicity they tolerate from most state governments. Some veil their choices by hiring cleaning services and caterers instead of housekeepers and cooks, but most participate in the fiction that has become U.S. immigration policy."

Erratum: A few readers pointed out some errors in the website that we linked to in yesterday's comment on migration flows. For example, the flow of people between Puerto Rico and the US does not constitute immigration. We thank them for their comments.
