The take away from this brief encounter between former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.), a first generation American, and this young woman who migrated from Mexico, is that the law applies to everyone, regardless of where you come from.

And so when Elizabeth Vilchis, (an illegal alien) and a mechanical engineer, told her story about coming to America when she was 7-years old from Mexico, and how Santorum would advise her, Santorum instead had his own immigration story to tell.

About his dad who left his homeland in Italy to come to America, when he was also 7-years old to escape the fascist dictatorship of Benito Mussolini, only to be told “he wasn’t allowed to come because of the immigration laws at the time.”

After telling his brief story Santorum then began to advise Vilchis; “What most people in America feel is that you’ve been given a tremendous benefit by being here in this country,” Santorum said, adding that perhaps she wouldn’t “have had to opportunities to accomplish what you have” in her own country of origin.

And concluded my suggesting; “My final point is that you have the ability to go to any other country right now and apply those wares, and be successful, and reapply to come back to America,” Santorum added. “Go and make the world a better place.”

However CNN host Ana Navarro injected herself into the conversation:  “First of all, this is your country,” she said. “No matter what he says, no matter what anybody else says, this is your country.”

At which point Santorum interrupted Navarro stating: “That’s not what the law says, as much as I’m sympathetic to you, you should recognize the gift that America has given you and that you can give to the world.”
