“Also in Romneys statement: Whats this about strengthen our legal immigration system. What does it mean, and why is it such an urgent need that it belongs in this brief statement?”
Well, from what I’ve seen and read, I think Romney’s always been a supporter of legal immigration and thinks there are badly reforms needed there as well.
Which may be true, but it raises two questions: Does Romney want to reform legal immigration in ways that encourage more legal immigrants or less, more assimilation or less? And, why does he consider this, apparently, of equal importance to border security, let alone to cracking down on the illegals?
We need fewer legal, as well as fewer illegal, immigrants.
