Leaked Sanders memo attacks O'Malley on immigration.

'Martin O’Malley is mired at the bottom of the polls and struggling to raise money for his presidential bid, but Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders' campaign is circulating an internal document to its staff and supporters tearing down the former Maryland governor’s immigration plan.

“While Governor O’Malley’s immigration platform is more detailed and progressive [than] Clinton, there are many immigration policy areas that it does not address,” reads the document, which goes on to outline how Sanders is more substantive on immigration policy than O’Malley on about a dozen issues including “enforcement, detention and humanitarian relief.”

A Sanders spokesman, Michael Briggs, denied the document constituted opposition research on a candidate still striving to gain any traction in the race. “We don’t see any reason to do opposition research on Gov. O’Malley,” he said, describing the memo as an “internal, matter-of-fact document sent to our staff and supporters comparing plans so people can have a better understanding of Bernie's proposals.”
The compare-and-contrast makes no mention of any of Hillary Clinton’s immigration reform proposals.'

2. Bunch of BS from Bernie. O'Malley has a history of real accomplishment on immigration/refugee

issues while Bernie has done nothing on immigration or refugee issues.

This absolutely infurates me. This by far Bernie's worst issue and by far O'Malley's best.

3. Does Bernie have an immigration plan?

I don't think I have ever seen one. O'Malley is the only candidate that has actual plans, in writing, with details on how he will fix the problems with immigration, the economy, climate change, etc. I have seen no plans that I can sit down and read from the
Bernie supporters. All I ever see when they are asked for detailed plans are links to outside sites that say what Bernie says on the stump, but never really have any specific details.

If a Bernie supporter reads this and can give me such a link to a specific plan on immigration, I would love to read it.

4. THIS in the NYTIMES, IGNORING MO'M's fine plan:

Bernie Sanders Gets Immigration Policy Right.
http://www.nytimes.com/2015/11/26/opinion/bernie-sanders-gets-immigration-policy-right.html?_r=0

I'll be writing to the Times about MO'M's plan, and their failure even to acknowledge it.

P.S. Happy Thanksgiving, Andy.
