From last night’s GOP debate on Univision, according to the Washington Times:
Sen. John McCain and former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani stood alone among the Republican presidential candidates in last night’s Spanish-language debate in calling for some illegal aliens to be granted a path to citizenship.
“None of us have been perfect — all of us have been struggling with this for a long time,” Mr. Giuliani said, summing up the flip-flops most of the top-tier Republican candidates have made on the issue during the presidential campaign.
He and Mr. McCain said that after the border is secure, the illegal alien population can be addressed, with some being allowed to stay.
“The people who want to come forward should be allowed to come forward,” Mr. Giuliani said.
But the other candidates said that doing so would be a disservice to those waiting in line at home and called for illegal aliens to go home and re-enter the U.S. legally.
“We have to enforce our borders and we have to uphold our law,” said former Sen. Fred Thompson, while former Gov. Mitt Romney called for illegal aliens “to get in line with everybody else, but there should be no special pathway.”
