Skip to comments.Romney says he will ‘replace and supersede’ Obama’s immigration plan

Mitt Romney criticized President Barack Obama's immigration plan on Thursday, saying that as president, he will "put in place my own long-term solution that will replace and supersede the President's temporary measure."
That plan is still vague, but it does not involve a path to legalization for any of the country's estimated 11 million illegal immigrants except for people who enlist in the military, according to a release from the campaign.
"As President, I won't settle for a stop-gap measure," he said during his speech to to the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Annual Conference in Orlando, Fla. "I will work with Republicans and Democrats to find a long-term solution. I will prioritize measures that strengthen legal immigration and make it easier. And I will address the problem of illegal immigration in a civil but resolute manner."
In the speech, Romney said that he would make it easier for legal immigrants to bring their spouses and children to America, as well as beef up temporary work visas for low-skilled workers. He also reiterated that he thinks foreign students who get advanced degrees in America should be given green cards. Romney's immigration plan also includes a "high tech fence" for the border and a national, mandatory employment verification system that ensures employers do not hire illegal immigrants.

And many here bashed Michelle Bachman who is against illegal immigration.
The sense of right and wrong is just not among them.
So Romney’s plan is to keep them here, rather than a long-term plan to encourage illegals to go home. But don’t worry, Romney’s plan does not include citizenship!
republican leadership (gop/e) today are just a subsidiary of the dnc.
That was my take on it as well..
Yet another reason Obama and Romney are twins.
Romney sure is giving me no reason to vote for him.
Republicans in congress stopped every Amnesty that they tried in the past 20 years. Scalia, Thomas, Roberts,Alito, 4 great conservative supreme Court justices courtesy of the Republicans. Yeah you liberals say Republicans are the problem not Obama and democrats who are destroying the country. How much is Obama paying you on his relect campaign. Happy that it gave Amnesty and work permits to illegals when Americans are jobless?Bush appointed Janice Rogers Brown to the federal Courts . bet you are against her too huh?
Repulicans Michelle Bachman or Sarah Palin should be president. bet you hate them too huh?
Not a surprise to hear it from Mitt, who like many moderate Republicans has been sympathetic to an amnesty solution for a long time.
Mitt’s proposal, which would require Congress’ assent, would at least have the virtue of being constitutional, unlike the Obama power grab. However, the devil is in the details, and Mitt really needs to learn the “U” word — calling Obama’s approach frankly Unconstitutional would show that Mitt actually does have some wits. By omission, whether for fear of touching a third rail or whatever, Mitt makes an apparent statement like “oh, Obama has just a badly thought out plan.” No, Mitt, it’s Unconstitutional.
Obama did an illegal act and should be jailed and impeached for it. It sucks Congress is concentrating on this fast and furious (now this monster Obama becoming a dictator and giving illegals Amnesty will be forgotten).
Read closely because it says implicitly that he will keep Obama’s order in place until congress gets a immigration bill to his desk, which given history could take a long while. Yet he doesnt want to explicitly admit he will keep Obama's order n place. He was asked 6 times on CBS about this on Sunday and refused to answer.
Sen Graham-nesty says this order is illegal, then shouldn't MRs first job be to rescind it? Didnt Gramnesty say we needed a constitutional amendment over birthright citizenship? I guess he forgot that too.
Sen Graham-nesty says this order is illegal,
Even Lindsay knows this so you know it is really illegal what Obama did.Since Grahamnasty is so pro Amnesty etc.
What happened to self-deportation?
They would need to sign a contract with the Feds to never seek citizenship.
What happened to self-deportation?
I wish the Kenyan Obama would self-deport.
I wouldnt trust that lying phony on the time of day. If he really believes it is illegal then how come he isnt doing anything about it?
And how come he is happy when HIS selected candidate Romney won't say he will reverse it? Romney was HIS candidate. Wouldnt you demand your candidate reverse an illegal order if elected?
If Grahamnesty says it's illegal it is probably legal,.
No,what Obama did was illegal. The U.S. is not a dictatorship. It must be impeached. Too bad Congress is focusing on fast and furious instead of Obama passing the Dream act Amnesty for illegals by decree.
I have posted over and over that we have tried that already before and it always ends in disaster.
Does anybody in DC or media realize how dangerous it is to have huge numbers “second class non-citizens” within our borders? How destructive and demoralizing it is to suddenly have them handed what millions of people are waiting patiently in line for?
I’m really worried. Romney is going to try to outbid Obama for the “Hispanic” vote and it is going to be catastrophic.
We need Pat Buchanan as president.
Aww, what’s the matter little fella?
Don’t like anybody pointing out what a bunch of mewling little cowards republicans really are?
