Romney Calls Immigration System Broken; Blames Both Parties

Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee for president, told the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce 33d annual convention in Los Angeles on Monday that the immigration system is broken and both parties are responsible.
“For years, Republicans and Democrats seem to have been more interested in playing politics with immigration than with actually fixing it,” Romney said, according to a FoxNewsLatino.com article. Romney vows to reach across the political aisle to fix the immigration system.
Details of the Romney campaign immigration position on various aspects of immigration are on his website. He has expressed support for giving green cards to foreigners who study math, science and engineering in U.S. schools, and to undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children who commit to serving in the military. But he opposes most proposals for a pathway to legalization for people who are here illegally, the article said.
Romney has vowed to veto the so-called DREAM Act, a bill backed by Democrats that would create a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children. He supports more security along the U.S.-Mexican border, official English legislation and making E-Verify, a fingerprint database that checks for immigration status, available nationwide.
