LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Before a gathering of Hispanic officials here today, Mitt Romney didn’t say whether he would maintain the new immigration policy recently implemented by President Barack Obama allowing some young illegal immigrants to stay in the country.
Nor did he give many specifics about what would be in a more comprehensive immigration plan he said he would favor should he win the White House.
In his speech to the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials, Romney stuck to broad terms. He said he wants a “long-term solution” to the broken immigration system and to “reach across the aisle” to work with Congress.
OK, there you have it. If you - Latino have any doubt about whether Romney plans to do anything of use for Latinos you only have to hear his speech today. Without saying what he will do he talks to having a long term solution for immigration versus President Obama's short term, temporary fix for young Latinos. Just remember he was for self-deportation just a short time ago and probably still is. He is just trying to cast doubt and not really try to win the Latino vote but buy making Obama look bad, minimize the Latino impact. The Democrats introduced the Dream Act twice and twice blocked by the Republicans. So now Obama acts and they have a problem with it? They are now trying to appeal to Latinos by talking about the economy and jobs. So remember - they too have blocked the jobs bill introduced by Obama. Visit TPL at www.theprogressivelatino.com
