    His grandfather coming here legally bought freedom for his son. His working in the mines paid the bills. What happened to his wife, it must of been rough taking care of the child (children) on her own? You can't send coupons home.

    A good lesson, immigration has always divided families. People coming here have to make the decision.

    So many didn't even know who he was a month ago. He was an afterthought in debates. This was his shot at free (his campaign is the poorest of the entire field, including Huntsman) airtime and he had to make the most of it.

    Political theater at best. I watched it and it felt contrived and pandering through out. Maybe it was the late hour, but I didn't buy it.

    Roll up the pant legs, folks -- it's getting really, really deep.
