Uh, you haven't really listened to any of Romney's speeches on the matter have you, Ms. Chavez? Go back and read several of his speeches from the 2008 elections and you'll see that Romney is pretty clear on his policies regarding illegal immigration: It is illegal. Period. What you also fail in is the clear polling that among Hispanic Americans, they overwhelmingly SUPPORT the illegal immigration laws such as the one so maligned by President Obama. You really need to do your history better before trying to tell someone what to do.
If Mitt Romney is to have any chance of beating President Barack Obama in November, he must win a larger share of the Hispanic vote than current polls suggest he will. And he won't unless he solves his immigration problem.

It's a problem of his own making. He decided that beating up on illegal immigrants would boost his popularity among those suspicious that he was really a moderate Republican. In doing so, he injected an issue into the campaign that had largely fizzled -- and for good reason. Illegal immigration is down to historical lows -- primarily because the U.S. economy continues...
