Barack Obama: Man with a Plan

“Last week, the Obama campaign mailed two glossy fliers to Ohio voters…The other showed a padlocked factory gate, noting that "only Barack Obama consistently opposed NAFTA," while asserting that Clinton had once viewed it favorably, …” As Crucial Tests Loom, Clinton Hits Harder

And part of Senator Obama’s Immigration Plan goes like this:

Work with Mexico

Obama believes we need to do more to promote economic development in Mexico to decrease illegal immigration.”

So, in summary: NAFTA is bad because it means a loss of US-based jobs but we need to do more to promote Mexico’s economic development because apparently we haven’t lost enough jobs to Mexico. Maybe when Congress finally gets back to work, the Senator can introduce his “Suspend NAFTA to Promote Mexico’s Economic Development" Act.

Side Notes: also from Senator Obama’s site:

Bring People Out of the Shadows

“Obama supports a system that allows undocumented immigrants who are in good standing to pay a fine, learn English, and go to the back of the line for the opportunity to become citizens.”

Isn’t part of being in “good standing” being documented?
