Romney can be Mexican, Is he part of the " Self Deported."
Last night, Mitt Romney stepped up to fill a non-existent void in the English language, using a new phrase we can’t get enough of: “self-deportation.”
By taking the word “deportation”, which connotes a forced dismissal, and tacking on the prefix “self,” Romney came up with a little term that seemingly contradicts itself. An oxymoron, if you will.
Responding to a question regarding illegal immigration, Romney offered up this answer:
“Well, the answer is self-deportation, which is people decide they can do better by going home because they can’t find work here because they don’t have legal documentation to allow them to work here."
