Biden to Latinos: ‘Mitt Romney wants you to show your papers, but he won’t show us his’ (Video)
An appeal to Latino voters? A dig at Mitt Romney for declining to release more of his tax returns?

“Mitt Romney wants you to show your papers, but he won’t show us his,” Biden told the Las Vegas conference, according to his prepared remarks.
