Romney says he will ‘replace and supersede’ Obama’s immigration plan
Yahoo! News ^ | June 21, 2012 | Liz Goodwin

Posted on 06/21/2012 9:44:46 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

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.

I'm still in shock that this democrat Obama gave Amnesty to illegals and did it by a dictate. I hate Obama.Many Americans are jobless and homeless and Obama gives Amnesty and work permits to illegals. Is this a nightmare? What happened to America? Republicans stopped Amnesty for 20 years.But now Obama passes it against the will congress, against the will of the American people.Impeach this communist democrat rat who calls itself Obama.

And many here bashed Michelle Bachman who is against illegal immigration.

Its time for me to acknowlege that our immigration laws simply will never be inforced by our elected officials.

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!

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).

Romney Bla-bla-bla.

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.

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.

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.

Yeah we'll be so much better when Obama in its 2nd term has more flexibility to violate the constitution and enslave us all. Obama’s passing the Dream act against the will of Congress is only the beginning of its dictatorship.

We need Pat Buchanan as president.

To you its all about scoring political points against Republicans (hey it’s not working on me).

Just ad-libbing here but the law could include an auto-matic repeal clause that repeals the entire law if a court throws out the non-citizenship clause.

In real life anything that gets passed will be a piece of crap and Romney is completely untrustworthy as w Boehner and McConnell.

They don't get that this was the whole purpose of obama's doing what he did. To start a war within the Republican party over immigration. Romney is smart not to play into their hands. It's what they want. It was by design. Let it go through the legislative process. If it passes, it passes. If it doesn't, it doesn't. No need to lose the election over it.

That plan is still vague

And it will remain vague until he's elected (if he's elected). Then it'll be put on the back burner and ignored by Mittens Obama-lite.

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.

During the AMNESTY Bill I, II, III etc fiascos Willartd was for it...

He said “We cant send t6hem all back”

“We must find a path to citizenship”

he was also KNOWINGLY breaking the law and hitring illegal aliens to do the grounds at the MASS Gov mansion...

We already knew that the liberal illegal alien lovin Willie would push AMNESTY if he got to be POTUS in 2008

nothing has changed...

Obama has just made it easier for him...

The important thing in a Romney speech is to make conservatives think he is against amnesty, and at the same time make Hispanics think that he is for it. That takes careful wordplay.

Later-on he can define ‘here illegally’ and ‘amnesty’ for us much like Bush, McCain and Graham-amnesty did in 2007. Path to Citizenship is NOT amnesty because there is a $500 fine, which will get refunded with a special immigrant tax credit.

If he gets no bill he just leaves Obama’s order in place.

Just great! Another statist thinking the federal government has the answer for everything.

Only the stench in the WH will be diminished when if the halfbreed is removed.

In the long term it will be as big a fiasco as that "vaunted" class of 94 who ended up being pure unadulterated RINO progressives who provided needed continuity by serving as GOP "skid greasers" for the Nation's first communist president.

Hahahahahahahaha... me liberasl... take a hike newb. I went to Florida and fought against gore for Bush... did you? I worked as hard as anyone here on FR during the Amenesty battle and spent my money paying for faxes and phone calls and supporting PACS that were fighting in the halls of Congress. I worked for Reagan’s campaign in my state twice... did you? I supported Sarah and would fight through the gates of hell and back with her... will you?

Educate yourself... the dims have installed socialism and stolen our rights over the past 60 years... they could not have done it without the republicans “compromising” our fundemental ideology and going along with the dims in the spirit of “cooperation”. It was republicans that agreed to vote ALL of obama’s appointments... even holder and his awful two SCOTUS choices... and the only appointees that obama dot through without republican consent were the ones that he appointed when Congress was out of DC... except one... the Sneate was legally in session but the gop/e once again were the cowards that they are and never made any waves about it.

Look to Cut, Cap and Balance... boner and mcconman both were telling us every day that Cut, Cap and Balance was the only plan on the table... the entire time they were meeting in secret with reid, pelosi and obama on the super committe that slashed 500 billion dollars from our Defense Department and 500 Billion from Medicare. Preach you crap somewher else... you are the progressive drone... not me.

The GOP doesn't even try and pretend to care what Conservatives think anymore. I had somebody telling me that Romney was going to repeal Obama's EOs and would take a tough stance against illegals. Instead, Romney is just trying to let Obama's actions slide on through.

Romney WAS going to do all those things when he was running in the Republican primary, 'self deportation'..was the word he used.
Now that he is in the general election campaign he has little need for conservatives anymore, He is going for RINO’s,(who want amnesty anyway) , independents and Democrats.
More than a few here have NOT figured that out yet.
