We Assess Cain & Trump and Find the Businessmen Lacking on Immigration

Successful businessmen Donald Trump and Herman Cain have attracted a lot of attention in their own ways because of their announced interest in running for President in 2012.
We have heard a lot of people claiming that both of these men provide some great hope for those of us looking for an end to illegal immigration and deep reductions in further legal immigration of workers to compete with unemployed Americans.
We didn’t find that hope. Not yet, anyway.
We can’t give Cain higher than a D+.
And Trump is way down in the D-minus territory.
Now that Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour has announced that he will not run for the GOP nomination, that leaves former House Speaker Newt Gingrich as the only Republican Hopeful rating worse than Trump at the moment.
As with all the Hopefuls, we rated these two on 12 different immigration issues and then added up the results to calculate their overall grade.
