Illegals and Rudy and Romney

We've already mentioned Rudy's extraordinary lenience toward the illegals.

Turns out Mitt Romney has the same inclinations.

Of course, they're both fudging their records, too.

Giuliani, the mayor of New York from 1994 to 2001, and Romney, the governor of Massachusetts from 2003 through January, are battling for the Republican presidential nomination amid an uproar over illegal immigration. So they're gritting their teeth, squaring their shoulders and vowing to throw the bums out and keep them out.

Giuliani and Romney also are battling about who was more tolerant of undocumented workers.
The Romney camp likes to trot out a 1994 Giuliani statement: "If you come here and you work hard and you happen to be in an undocumented status," he said, "
you're one of the people we want in this city.

"You're somebody we want to protect, and we want you to get out from under what is often a life of being like a fugitive, which is really unfair."

Thompson has the only common-sense position on the immigration situation, by the way.
