Spock's Leonard Nimoy tweets on immigration

Mr. Spock supports a rewrite of the nation's immigration laws and it seems the White House likes the endorsement.

Leonard Nimoy, the actor who brought Star Trek's first officer to life in TV and film, posted a series of his thoughts about the sweeping immigration bill on Twitter.

He says, of course, his reasons are "logical." They are also based in part on his own life, as the son of an immigrant barber.

President Obama's crush on Lt. Uhura notwithstanding, someone retweeted one of Nimoy's posts on the official White House account.

As Nimoy noted in one of his tweets, the Senate has already passed the biggest change in the nation's immigration laws since 1986. The measure would include a pathway to legal status for the 11 million unauthorized immigrants already in the USA.

"Up to the house to get millions out of the shadows," Nimoy wrote.

Nimoy ends each of his tweets, including the ones on immigration, with "LLAP." For the non-Trekkies, that's "Live Long and Prosper" — the saying that typically follows Spock's Vulcan salute.
