Mitt Romney on immigration: I agree with Marco Rubio

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney spoke briefly to reporters at a campaign stop in Milford, N.H., about the Obama administration's decision to halt deportations of young immigrants who are in the country illegally. Romney said he agreed with Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, who noted the decision is merely a short-term fix.

"If I'm president, we'll do our very best to have that long-term solution," Romney said. "An executive order is, of course, just a short-term matter that can be reversed by subsequent presidents."

A Moderate

Romney and Rubio are quick to critize, but they know that Republican party is dead set against helping these students, so they would block any long term solution. Obama did the humane thing for so many young people who were brought to this country when they were children. I am moderate and really not a great fan of Obama's but the more Romney speaks the less I like him, he is sounding more and more like the hate filled members of the tea party. Keep it of Mr. Romney you are losing all the moderates and independents and we are the majority of Americans, you are leaving us no one to support but President Obama

Mitt Romney’s Magic Mormon Underwear protects him from the evils of the world including socialism, illegal immigrants, homosexuals and taxes on his inherited wealth. Can these sacred garments also make it rain down enough cash for a victory in this race since well over 90% of public offices are bought in our country by Big Money?

Can't take anymore

Very bold of Ol' Willard to jump on Marcocito's still unwritten legislation to resolve the issue of illegal immigrants in the USA. Maybe his magic underwear enables him to see the future and at least read the first draft of this document. It seems every controversial or inflammatory issue gets the same response from the Republicans: we have the answer and will reveal it 2 days after the election. Vote for us!
