    Mitt’s keeping his cards close to the vest as Barack Obama moves forward with plan announced earlier this week to stop the deportation of some young illegal immigrants.

The presumptive Republican nominee said he doesn’t understand why the president “feels stop-gap measures are the right way to go.”
