Who knew? Mitt Romney is Mexican! Sort of...


NBC’s “Rock Center with Brian Williams” recently aired a full report revealing Mitt Romney’s roots south of the border. Mitt Romney’s father, former Michigan governor George Romney was born in a Mormon colony in the Mexican state Chihuaha. His ancestors fled the United States to avoid prosecution concerning anti-polygamy laws. Then, during the Mexican Revolution, George Romney’s father's family fled Mexico to the United States where Mitt Romney was born years later.

Wait, so does that make the GOP candidate, presidential hopeful, is half-Mexican? Oh the posibilities. This means he could actually apply for dual citizeship, and if he chose to, hold public office. Fortunately for Mexico,  since Romney’s not a natural-born citizen, he wouldn’t be able to run for Presidente. Romney still has relatives living in the Mormon colonies of Colonia Juarez and Colonia Dublan, but doesn’t acknowledge them or even visited them.

Meanwhile, Mitt Romney’s campaign holds a stance against immigration reform, despite the fact that his family were once immigrants themselves,  Maybe the Democrats should ask Romney for his long form birth certificate…
