After Mitt Romney told Chris Wallace on Sunday that “we’re going to get it done” with regards to immigration reform, Sarah Palin said is the former Massachusetts Governor and 2012 Republican presidential candidate is in “never never land.”
In an interview with Breitbart News Sunday, Palin said “GOP candidates are promising to do everything in their power to stop Obama’s lawlessness, including his unjust amnesty that Americans do not support.”
“Governor Romney is busy promoting some decent policies; perhaps that’s why he clearly hasn’t followed today’s races because every Republican is campaigning against amnesty and every Democrat gunning for the Senate is campaigning for it. With all due respect, Governor Romney is in ‘never never land’ on this one.”
Palin added that amnesty to illegal aliens, if passed, will “radically erode American sovereignty.”
“Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty will radically erode American sovereignty, and Harry Reid and his lemmings are determined to protect Obama’s amnesty anyway. We can’t block funding for Obama’s failed policies including amnesty unless we dispatch Harry Reid.
“This is precisely why constitutional conservatives must win on Tuesday, meaning no votes for U.S. Senate or House candidates of the duped and dense Democrat persuasion.”
The former Alaska Governor and 2008 Republican Vice Presidential nominee was reacting to Romney’s appearance on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace earlier this week where he suggested that immigration reform would be accomplished if Republicans win the Senate Tuesday.
“You’re going to see a provision, first of all, to secure the border. Second of all, to deal with those who come here illegally. And third, to make sure our immigration policies are more open and transparent … That’s going to happen.
“You’re going to see a bill actually reach the desk of the president if we finally have someone besides Harry Reid sitting in the Senate. So we’re going to get it done.”
A June Gallup survey showed that only 31 percent of Americans approved of President Obama’s handling of immigration, while 65 percent disapproved. Inside the numbers, 60 percent of Democrats showed approval, 25 percent of Independents, and only 8 percent of Republicans.
