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.
But the presumptive GOP presidential nominee’s speech, which stuck to
touting his economic message, was devoid of many specifics.
