Obama campaign: Romney confuses immigration issue

Source: Denver Post

The Obama campaign said GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney has confused voters in statements to The Denver Post that he would honor temporary work permits given to illegal immigrant DREAMers granted by the Obama administration.

“The people who have received the special visa that the president has put in place, which is a two-year visa, should expect that the visa would continue to be valid. I’m not going to take something that they’ve purchased,” Romney said. “Before those visas have expired we will have the full immigration reform plan that I’ve proposed.”

Obama’s director of Hispanic press Gabriela Domenzain said in a statement:

“Romney’s latest immigration pivot raises more questions than it answers. He still has not said whether he would continue the Administration’s policy that provides a temporary reprieve from deportation for young people who were brought here through no fault of their own. Would he side with his extreme anti-immigration advisors and repeal this measure? What would he do with those who qualify for deferred action but haven’t received it? Would he deport those who have received a deferment when the program expires after two years?”

1. Question of the day:

did he lather up with tanning lotion when he made the promise?



After his remarks on things like "self deportation", does he have any credibility when it comes to Latinos? Polls suggest not much.
