Democratic Convention Updates: Rep. Charlie Gonzalez Links Romney to Brewer, Arpaio and Kobach

Rep. Charlie Gonzalez (D-Texas), chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, talked to delegates and described Romney's immigration policies, tying him to the much-criticized immigration enforcement practices of Arizona. Gonzalez said, "The truth is that Mitt Romney has embraced the sb1070 racial-profiling policies of Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and Sheriff Joe Arpaio.At the same time, Romney has praised Arizona for another controversial immigration measure, saying during a debate that the state's employment verification law should be a model for the nation.
In January, Romney said he supports Self-Deportation - MASS DEPORTATION. It's also another phrase for what Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who has advised Romney on immigration issues and wrote SB 1070, calls "attrition through enforcement."
Romney gave an address on immigration reform in June and said he supports broad changes to existing law, but without allowing undocumented immigrants currently in the United States a path to citizenship.
"The truth is ROMNEY would separate families that have been here for generations," Gonzalez said of Romney. "The truth is ROMNEY has embraced distrust and division at the expense of our American values."
Rep. Nydia Velazquez (D-N.Y.), another member of the Hispanic Caucus who spoke after Gonzalez, applauded President Barack Obama for his June announcement that some undocumented young people will be given work authorization and deferred action from deportation.
"Mitt Romney, on the other hand, is walking away from us," Velazquez said. "He walks with people who disrespect us and people who divide us."

New Video of the Chanting and Booing against a Puerto Rican Lady inside the Republican National Convention. - Mike Robles has watched the VIDEO many times and concludes that there is Xenophobia. I analyze VIDEO and conclude the same

The audience was silent and after the lady is presented as Puerto Rican the "USA" chant starts for the first time. After Reince Preibus speaks to a silent audience and asks respect for the Puerto Rican delegate the chant "USA" begins again.

I am not blaming 20,000 people or Mr Preibus, I am not blaming 100 people, but I am sure that there were at least 10 or 20 xenophobes degrading the Republican National Convention with Hatred and Bigotry.

Florida is a super Swing State and is full of Puerto Ricans, It would be interesting to know what they think after analyzing this VIDEO.
