David Brooks has an op/ed suggesting that the "real" Rudy Guiliani is generous to immigrants and that the recent incarnation of Rudy G on immigration is a fake. Whatever you conclude, it is clear that Guiliani has said some very different things about immigration and immigrants in the past than he is saying today in the heat of a presidential campaign. For example, in 1996, at Harvard's JFK School, he stated emphatically that “I believe the anti-immigrant movement in America is one of our most serious public problems.”
Will the real Rudy Guiliani please stand up? In some ways, this is much more important than answer to the the old punch line on the television show "To Tell the Truth."
