Univision on Mitt Romney's no-details immigration plan

From Univision:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Sunday he would work as president to pass a law providing “long-term” relief for undocumented youth, criticizing President Obama’s new policyas a politically-motivated, stop-gap measure.

But Romney declined to expand on what his plan would entail and wouldn’t say whether he would undo Obama’s new initiative that temporarily halts deportations for certain undocumented youth who were brought to the U.S. at a young age, which appeared to energize the president’s Latino supporters ahead of the November election.

“My anticipation is I’d come into office and say we need to get this done, on a long-term basis, not this kind of stop-gap measure,” Romney said during an interview that aired on CBS’s Face the Nation program. “I would work with Congress to put in place a long-term solution for the children of those that have come here illegally.”

Romney is ducking the question. This is a legitimate question. He campaigned on this issue in the primary and he should tell the voters if he intends to keep the promises he made in the primary or not. He made promises to voters in the primary and if he intends to break those promises then he should tell us. Obama's new immigration rule is basically the dream act and Romney said he would repeal the dream act so he should tell us all if he will get rid of Obama's new immigration rule or keep it if he becomes president. We have the right to know if he will get rid of Obama's new rule or keep it.

So the deal to make is this:

Let's keep the kids whose illegal immigrant parents brought them here, and in exchange let's send their parents home, if their parents are still here illegally.

We should keep the illegal kids, since our tax dollars have helped pay for their support, including their educations.

If the kids can prove they've been here since they were young and that they've got their public educations from us, they should also be able to either prove their folks have gained legal status or have gone home.

If they can't show that their parents have gone legitimate, then the kids are not paying our nation back for the benefits they've gotten from us.

Deal?

These bleeding hearts who want amnesty for these illegal aliens better think of chain migration. Then, OK, let's give amnesty to the 12-20 million illegal aliens. This will draw another 12 million illegal aliens to this country within years. What will we do then?. How are you going to control overstayed VISA's? Got a solution to that? What about the millions waiting to come to this country LEGALLY? Where is the end of the line for them? Right now, as far as I know, the end of the line is in the country from which you are coming. If we are now going to form a line in this country for the illegal aliens, let's bring all who want to come to this country LEGALLY get in line here, also. Let's not punish them because of the illegal aliens. We tried amnesty once before, It DID NOT work. Look at what we got now. The only solution is to enforce our immigration laws and get these illegal aliens back to their own country where they belong. Let them apply to come to this country LEGALLY and I do believe things will work out better for everyone. And remember, the DREAM Act is amnesty and will start a chain migration. Let's just ENFORCE the law.

I use to have respect for obama. No more. This last stunt he did was DISGRACEFUL!

Imagine that, Romney's plan on immigration is vague. Just like his "I'd do the opposite of what Obama did middle East policy".

I may not like Obama much, but Mittens here is just a joke. GOP never ceases to amaze me.

What great hearts you all have. Many of the kids don't even speak Spanish. Of course, Florida even makes the legal children pay out of state tuition if their parents aren't legal.
