Romney Not Pandering on Immigration

by Lisa Schiffren

Solid answer to the woman who wanted to know what he’ll do with immigrants who don’t have green cards. Romney maintains the distinction between legal and illegal immigrants. Obama blathers on, but his unilateral stay of deportation for the children of illegals — “Dreamers” — shows a singular lack of distinction between legal and illegal routes to citizenship.

Criticizing Romney for liking the Arizona immigration law may well backfire for Obama, even if that law isn’t considered “respectable” by elites.
