We can only wish.....

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said in his Democratic National Convention speech that immigrants would find life so intolerable under a Mitt Romney administration that they would, “self-deport.”

“Instead of supporting their dream, Governor Romney wants to make their lives so miserable, so oppressive, so intolerable that they would leave behind the life they’ve built and ‘self-deport’,” he said. “But we believe we’re a better country than that. And thanks to President Obama, as we keep on fighting for the DREAM Act, they can remain in the country they love.”

Really, Villaraigosa? You think so little of the immigrants of this country that they would return to their own much more oppressive, and even dangerous countries, just because the American government didn’t give them free handouts?
Villaraigosa has clearly never seen miserable, oppressive and intolerable, if he thinks an America where immigrants have to work toward their citizenship falls under that category.
