"The only reason we do not have a law right now that has provided a citizenship not just for DREAM Act kids but for folks who are here, are law-abiding citizens, is because the Republicans have consistently demogogued the issue and have blocked action in Congress. This notion that somehow Republicans want to have it both ways, they want to vote against these laws and appeal to anti-immigrant sentiment when we have a nominee who said that Arizona laws -- which allow those same kids with Latino surnames to potentially be picked up [and] asked for their papers -- and then they come and say, 'But we really care about these kids and we want to do something about it.' That looks like hypocrisy to me."
