He won't say...

Responding to the challenge that President Obama posed in his order last week to stop deporting some illegal immigrants, Mitt Romney declined to say on Sunday whether he would reverse the president’s decision if he takes up occupancy of the White House.

Although Mr. Romney said during the Republican primary debates that he would veto the Dream Act, which would provide a path to citizenship for some illegal immigrants, he was more equivocal about Mr. Obama’s order last week. It allows work permits and prevents deportation for as many as 1.4 million undocumented immigrants under the age of 30 who were brought to the United States as children.

“With regards to these kids who were brought in by their parents through no fault of their own, there needs to be a long-term solution so they know what their status is,’’ Mr. Romney said on “Face the Nation” on CBS.
