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."
