Romney Faces Immigration Questions From Latinos
There’s reason why Romney isn’t saying what he’d do about immigration - there’s no doubt that if he were elected that he would become the death of the DREAM.
Romney lambasted Obama’s economic policies in making the case for why the Latino electorate that traditionally backs Democrats should vote for him this time. But he sounded uncomfortable when asked if he would continue the administration’s halt in deporting so-called dreamers — young illegal immigrants brought to America as children who want to study and work in the country where they grew up.
Conservatives oppose the Obama program, calling it an amnesty that increases competition for scarce jobs. During the primary campaign, Romney said he opposed the DREAM Act, a Democratic proposal blocked by congressional Republicans, but also called for an unspecified GOP version that has yet to emerge from the party or his campaign.
