Reported by MSN Now, Birthers want proof that Mitt Romney was born in America. Romney’s father was born in Mexico. Romney’s grandfather fled the revolt in Mexico with his family. The question remains how did the Romney family enter the United States. So was Miles Park Romney, Mitt’s grandfather a wet back – an illegal immigrant along with George’s father?
When Romney’s father wanted to run for the presidency, it was disclosed George, was born in Colonia Dublan, one of the colonies in northern Mexico that the Romneys settled. In theory, Romney could run for president of Mexico if the United States gig doesn’t work out for him.
Romney’s Mexican roots run so deep that he has family there of which he never speaks. Other branch of the family – leading down to Romney’s cousins Leighton, Mike and Meredith – stayed behind in Mexico, their numbers growing. The Romneys chose to remain in Mexico because they established good lives for themselves and their families there. Most of them are now dual-citizens.
Ironic that the Birthers harassed President Obama until recently regarding his birth place. The group is now after the Republican front runner – Mitt Romney. ”
