Romney: Obama Made Reform 'Difficult'

Mitt Romney wasn't as vitriolic as some Republicans in response to President Obama's new policy to stop some young illegal immigrants from being deported, but said the move would make reforming the system more difficult. “I think he action of the president today makes it more difficult to reach that long-term solution because an executive order is of course, a short-term matter and can be reversed by subsequent presidents.” Romney suggested that he supported some sort of new immigration policy, but refused to get specific, and also wouldn't say whether he would reverse the Obama decision. Romney has said he would veto the DREAM Act, a bill that would implement much the same policy as Obama announced Friday.
