Romney: Dream Act Kids Can Stay

    US Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney listens to a question as he talks to journalists about his phone call with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyah on board his campaign plane on September 28, 2012.

Romney also took the opportunity jab at Obama, saying the president's support of the DREAM Act was clearly a political move.
