Nevada Candidate Says Obama Played Politics With Immigration to Get Votes
"Republican congressional candidate Danny Tarkanian on Wednesday accused President Barack Obama of using immigration and Hispanics as a "political tool" to win re-election by changing his deportation policy just months before voters go to the polls," the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
"Speaking at a Hispanics in Politics breakfast of activists, Tarkanian faulted Obama for promising comprehensive immigration reform when he took office and failing to deliver. 'Why wasn't it passed?' Tarkanian asked. 'Maybe it wasn't passed because ... they want to use this as a political tool. ... They're using it as a tool to get votes back in Washington.'"
