Comment: Murdoch V. Romney On Immigration

New York City Mayor Bloomberg teamed up with News Corp. CEO, Rupert Murdoch in Mitt Romney's home base of Boston to push him on immigration reform. The Boston Globe reports

Both Murdoch and Bloomberg said they were mystified that Romney hasn't done more to reach out to Latino voters by outlining plans to ease immigration rules and resolve the legal status of immigrants already here. "Give them a path to citizenship," Murdoch said. "They pay taxes. They are hard-working people. Why Mitt Romney doesn't do it, I have no idea because they are naturally Republicans." Bloomberg added: "The Republicans walking away from the Latino community is about as dumb a strategy as any political party has ever adopted."

In a panel discussion, Murdoch argued that there is a desperate need for engineers and other skilled professionals that the United States can't supply internally. And he said he was appalled that the United States doesn't automatically grant work visas to people who graduate from US universities with advanced degrees, instead of forcing them to apply for restrictive H-1B visas.

Mitt Romney's campaign needs to jettison the rhetoric of the protectionist anti-immigrationist wing of the Republican party, and embrace the pro-American, pro-immigration positions of Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, John McCain, Michael Bloomberg and Rupert Murdoch. Please let us know your thoughts by writing to us at
