Rick Santorum--Closing Doors

Rick Santorum, while announcing his GOP candidacy for the 2016 Presidential election,  held up a piece of coal to express pride in his immigrant ancestry--his grandfather came to this country to escape Fascist Italy and worked as a coal miner. He held the American flag in his other hand and paid tribute to the country which gave his family the dignity it deserved. But he is against Hillary Clinton who promotes pro-immigration policies and accuses her of importing unskilled labor that takes jobs away from “Americans”. Did someone lock the door to the US after his grandfather got in? Or does the American dream and freedom belong to only white unskilled immigrants?
