This clip is from '05.  It's hard to hear, and is obviously excerpted, but here goes...

("My view is that those who are here, uh, contrary to the law should seek to establish, uh, legal residence.  And if they do so, I'd be delighted to provide them support.")

Again, I'm not sure what this means.  My guess is the anti-Romney folks believe it is an example of "flip-floppery."  But the statement is nuanced enough to allow for some wiggle room.  For example, he is calling for "legal status" -- not "citizenship," per se.  I'd like to see the full video.  What are your thoughts?
