Nope. "Path to citizenship" types are instantly nixed - including Palin.
I’m with you on the severity of the issue and IMO Palin was too lax on this up at least as far as earlier this year, when she said she and McCain agreed totally on illegal immigration and she seemed to intimate that once the border was ‘sealed’ she’d be for amnesty as well.
My sense is that she’s toughened up on it through her support for Jan Brewer and the strength of the tea party movement, but I would like to see her coming out more strongly once she rolls out her campaign and positions.
But Romney, Pence, Daniels, Barbour, Rubio, Huck, etc., have all been bad on the issue historically. DeMint is the only leading pol whom I believe has been strong on it all along.
I really want Palin to be tough on it. At least she’s been sounding better in recent months, but I want clear, unambiguous positions on it.
