It was not long ago Rudy Giuliani questioned Mitt Romney on Immigration, accusing the former Governor of hiring illegal immigrants. Romney said he was not the employer and it was not ethical to fire someone based on a funny accent. Turns out, Mitt Romney recently fired his landscaper after he learned again illegal immigrants worked on his property.
From the Romney campaign:
“After this same issue arose last year, I gave the company a second chance with very specific conditions. They were instructed to make sure people working for the company were of legal status.”
“We personally met with the company in order to inform them about the importance of this matter,” he said. “The owner of the company guaranteed us, in very certain terms, that the company would be in total compliance with the law going forward.”
Last year, workers said that Romney sometimes waved as they tended to the grounds, occasionally calling out, “Buenos dias,” or “Good day.” They also said Romney’s wife, Ann, brought the workers water one especially hot day.
This once again plays against Romney. Flip-Flop. Can Romney be trusted on the issues? It is a choice voters will have to make shortly and right now, an attractive alternative is surging in the polls.
