Reporting from Milford, N.H., and Washington Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney suggested Friday that he was open to helping young illegal immigrants but said the new policy announced Friday by the Obama administration to suspend their deportations complicates efforts to find a permanent solution.

I believe the status of young people who come here through no fault of their own is an important matter to be considered and should be solved on a long-term basis so they know what their future would be in this country," Romney told reporters after a rally in New Hampshire.

Thanks for the warning....weirdo.
I am beginning to sense you are a lonely teenager and, perhaps, lacking in social skills or have something disfiguring like acne, and feel extremely frustrated with the world, but there are people who can help you.

No matter what you're going through right now, this too shall pass. Hang in there. Tell yourself to "keep on swimming" and let others reach out to help you. You will get through this.

No Carol, you've got it all wrong. He does care about people and is willing to risk his re election to do the right thing.
Why doesn't Romney say he will repeal this decision and deport everyone if he is elected?
Why wasn't it the right thing a year or two years ago? Why is it the right thing five months before the election and when things are going badly for his campaign?

It's a political gimmick, Lily. Some would say a brilliant political gimmick, but a gimmick nonetheless.

Deporting children who have become a part of the American mainstream because their parents broke the law certainly isn't fair. But using this issue at this particular time is unseemly transparent.

Obama is an arrogant egomaniac who cares only about himself. He does not care about what is best for our country. Our country can't survive another term of Obama's destructive anti-America radical left wing agenda or his contempt for our citizens and The Constitution.

We right wingers will correct President Romney and demand that every illegal alien be deported. Including the Kenyan lizard.

You forgot about the Dream Act? I think it is the right thing to do and am proud of President Obama for standing up for humanity, no matter the cost.

Brilliantly transparent - but not in a good way.

This issue is like a lifesaver being thrown to a drowning man. He's holding on to it for dear life. It's all he's got to keep from going under. It's not exactly the best float when he's got a long way to go.

This tactic might sway a few Hispanics who were sitting on the fence, but the American people have wised up a bit. We recognize a drowning man clinging to a lifesaver when we see one.

The reason I ask is because decent men don't say things to other women they wouldn't say to their mother. Or grandmother. Or sister. Or daughter.
Of course, if you were abused as a child or raised by unfit parents, you shouldn't be afraid to ask for help. It's the first step to recovery.
Hey Eman; lookie here.

President Obama is doing and saying exactly what he's told to do and say to keep the White House in the hands of those who are really running the show.

The Kenyan's communist coup needs voter massive voter fraud to succeed.

America gets it

ps

America demands that all illegal aliens be rounded up and deported. And their anchor brats too.

Some Republicans in Congress and the governor of Arizona, whose state has been at the center of enforcement controversy strongly criticized the Obama action.
But the response from Romney was more muted.
Romney said Obama's decision will make finding a long-term solution to the nation's immigration issues more difficult. But he also said the plight of illegal immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children is "an important matter to be considered."
Ok, so Romney has a choice here: Come out and say that all illegals and their children will be deported en masse one day one of his Presidency if he were to win; or, he can say, he will grant amnesty to all of them.!!
I'd say, President Obama has jacked Mitt up against the wall on this one!

It's not only about Hispanics Carol. Not all white people are hateful and against amnesty. You'd be surprised about how many people who are compassionate and realistic are in favor of this, and the Dream Act and amnesty and gay rights.

But, by all means, I would be thrilled if Romney went far right and condemned this and pledged to begin mass deportation if elected. Go for it.

Romney will handle this with the same rational approach he's handled everything else.

He'll let Obama think he won this battle until reasoning prevails again. But the war, figuratively speaking, is far from over.
