Santorum: I’ll Use Immigration to Go for Workers’ Votes

Republican presidential candidate and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum said immigration is a “good example” of an issue that could be used to get workers’ votes and touted his record on the subject on Friday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.

Santorum argued, (relevant remarks begin around 9:45), “if you look at the issues that I’ve been talking about. I announced from a, you saw it, I announced from a factory floor in western Pennsylvania. We’re going to go right after those workers.”

He continued that he “absolutely” wants to go after the votes of union workers, and “you go after all workers who feel like neither party cares about them. Immigration’s a good example of that. I know Donald Trump is getting a lot of attention on the immigration issue. But if you look at the organizations that are the pro-worker immigration groups like NumbersUSA and FAIR, you know who has the only A rating [from NumbersUSA] of any of the candidates including Donald Trump? … Rick Santorum. In fact, there’s only one other candidate, and that’s Scott Walker, who’s got a B-, but nobody else has a better than a C grade [note: Trump does have a C+, every other candidate has a C or lower]. So, I think we’re — while people may have nice rhetoric, we’re the ones that have the right policies that are going to connect with American voters.”
