Vice President Joe Biden will speak this afternoon at the National Council of La Raza on Mitt Romney’s immigration policy and taxes. According to the pre-released remarks, Biden plans to deliver the following zinger: “Mitt Romney wants you to show your papers, but he won’t show us his.” Romney supports Arizona’s immigration law, now mostly invalidated by the Supreme Court save for the “show me your papers” provision, which requires police to check the immigration status of anyone who looks “reasonably suspicious.” The GOP presidential candidate has also come under fire for refusing to release more of his tax returns.
