Governor Davis campaigned for Hispanic support at a town hall last night in Los Angeles where he criticized Arnold SchwarzeneggerÂ´s record on immigrant issues. Davis said he was opposed Proposition 187 to deny services to illegal immigrants and just signed a bill allowing illegal immigrants to get driversÂ´ licenses.
Schwarzenegger supported 187 and opposes the license bill.
Davis also criticized Schwarzenegger as being inconsistent with his fund-raising. Schwarzenegger has accepted money from businesses and individuals, but not from tribes and unions, which he calls “special interests.”
SchwarzeneggerÂ´s spokesman dismissed the criticism, saying itâ€™s absurd for Davis to lecture an immigrant on immigration and that his own fund-raising is also fair game for scrutiny.
