GOP Latino Outreach Continues

More and more Republicans are jumping on the show-me-your-papers bandwagon – God forbid they should let Arizona out-xenophobe them:

At a Tea Party rally in Ramona, Calif., on Saturday, Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter told the conservative crowd that he supports the deportation of children of illegal immigrants – even if they were born in the United States.

“Between $10 [billion] and $20 billion in this state that we spend on immigration – that’s health services, that’s education and jails. We just can’t afford it anymore,” he told the crowd, according to the Los Angeles Times. “We’re not being mean. We’re just saying it takes more than just walking across the border to become an American citizen.

“It’s what’s in our souls.”

Conservative lawmakers in Oklahoma, buoyed by the passage of SB 1070, say they will introduce a similar bill in their state. In fact, Republican state Rep. Randy Terrill told The Associated Press that Oklahoma may even take Arizona’s example further and include assets seizure provisions and harsher penalties for illegal immigrants.

I especially love that Duncan Hunter quote about how it’s what’s in our souls that makes us Americans.  I guess that means Latinos just aren’t racist and hateful enough to be real Americans.  What a shame.
