Romney Promises to Veto DREAM Act if Elected President

Posted: Jan 02, 2012

 No surprise here because GOP Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney said he doesn’t support in-state tuition last September, but now he’s finally said as president he would veto the DREAM Act if the bill ever passed congress.

“For those who come here illegally, the idea of giving them in-state tuition credits or other special benefits, I find to be contrary to the idea of a nation of laws,” Romney told supporters at a campaign stop in Le Mars, Iowa.

He does however believe in one path to permanent residency. (Note that he says “permanent residency” and not a path to citizenship.)

Romney said he would support granting children of undocumented immigrants some form of residency in exchange for military service. “I’m delighted with the idea that people who come to this country and wish to serve in the military can be given a path to permanent residency—those who serve in our military and fulfill those requirements, I respect and acknowledge that path,” Romney went on to say.

A Pew Hispanic Center poll released last week showed Romney losing Latino voters to President Obama by a 3:1 margin, far worse than John McCain did in 2008.

Watch Romney at a September 2011 debate addressing in-state tuition.
