More Suppression of Truth
Sarah Says Border Security First But Univision Edits Comment Out

Reuters -- October 22 
"We secure our border first" – Strange, this statement does not appear in the Univision transcript.

Palin addresses issues on television interview
    Republican Vice Presidential candidate and Alaska governor Sarah Palin addressed issues yesterday relating to Latin America, including Hugo Chavez and illegal immigration, in her first interview with a Spanish-language network. [...]
    The governor also addressed illegal immigration, saying she and McCain supported a two-pronged approach of securing the border and then working with undocumented workers already in the US.
    "There is no way that in the US we would roundup every illegal immigrant - there are about 12 million of the illegal immigrants.
    "We - our policy - John McCain has been so clear with his policy and it makes a lot of sense too.
    "We secure our borders first. But then with a comprehensive approach we must deal humanely with those who are here, and we must allow the steps to be taken to protect the families of those who are here, maybe as illegal immigrants today," she said.
    American Patrol Comment: There is a difference between McCain and Obama, but Univision cut it out of their transcript. Also see Media Matters

The right message for McCain & Obama on illegals: "Go home!"
