Rick Santorum's stance on Immigration Reform.. Casey is Silent. Surprise. Surprise.

WELL what do you know, Santorum gives a stance on an issue today, and Casey has no response. Because of course, it is a complicated issue, and Casey must watch countless debats before deciding on the issue, while ignoring public-opinion polls, of course.

People actually think this guy is qualified to represent PA in the Senate?

Anyway, back to the point. The issue? Immigration reform.

Sen. Santorum's stance (as provided to AP, 3/29):

Sen. Rick Santorum said Tuesday he generally opposes allowing illegal immigrants
to become U.S. citizens without them first going back to their home
country.

Without that requirement, "I don't know why anyone would bother trying to wait in line to get a green card ... You create all sorts (of), I think, very bad incentives for really controlling the ingress into this country," Santorum said in an interview shortly after addressing Pennsylvania farmers at a forum. ...

Santorum said he has heard from some in the construction industry and some farmers -- particularly fruit and mushroom growers -- concerned that tightening border security could make it more difficult for them to find workers.

He said he supports studying ways to increase the number of legal immigrants in the country.

Santorum told the farmers that, as the son of an immigrant, he is mindful of immigrants' contributions and the need to be compassionate. But, he said, "the bottom line is that we have to treat people who came to this country illegally differently than those who came legally, and if we don't, then we will never control our borders, period."
Bob Casey's "Stance" (as reported by the AP, 3/29):

When asked Tuesday whether Casey supported the bill, campaign spokesman Larry
Smar said, "I think it's still pretty early in the process and we're watching the Senate debate. It seems like there isn't that much consensus in Washington, or in the Senate for that matter, on how to proceed, so we'll watch the debates and see how it progresses."
WOW. I'm speechless. Now I feel how Casey does. All the time.
