The Real Reason To Hope Cain Ends His Campaign: He Doesn’t Have A Clue What He’s Talking About

Herman Cain seems to think immigration and US citizenship are issues for the states to deal with.

“The way I would deal with those that are already here, which has been my stated position:  empower the states to deal with the illegals that are already here, not some, big, grandiose, national one size fit-all. I believe that the states should be empowered to deal with the illegals that are already here,” Cain said CNN’s State of the Union this morning.

In response to  whether that meant the states could allow illegal immigrants to “be put on a path toward legalization and toward citizenship,” Cain answered, “It would be up to the states as long as they did not break the federal law.”

Actually we do need to have a “big, grandiose, national one size fit-all” scheme. Why? Because the Constitution actually calls for one. It’s right there in the enumerated powers of Congress in Article I, Section II.

To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization,

Given his position on immigration, the right to bear arms,  the prohibition on religious tests and the First Amendment, one has to wonder if Cain has even a passing familiarity with the US Constitution.
