An immigration enforcement activist admits to being extremely disappointed in Mitt Romney’s response to President Barack Obama’s issuance of an Executive Order essentially offering amnesty for nearly one million illegal immigrants.
When Obama issued his order last week to stop deporting some illegal aliens who were brought to the United States as children,Romney soundly criticized it as an election year political move. But when the presumptive Republican nominee was asked on CBS’s Face the Nation about an alternative plan,he would only say there needs to be a long-term solution.
William Gheen,president of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC),says he is frustrated by Romney’s response to the administration’s plans —plans Gheen has described as “dictatorial”in nature.
“Mitt Romney has refused to say that he would override it —and he has indicated his support for [Senator Marco] Rubio’s amnesty plan,which is equivalent to what Obama has just done in an unlawful manner,”states the ALIPAC leader. “Therefore Romney is,in a way,either acquiescing if not directly supporting Obama’s move.”
Initially,Gheen described Romney’s stance on illegal immigration as being in direct contrast to President Obama’s immunity proposal. But Romney’s apparent flip-flop,he now says,is a big disappointment to the primary voters who supported his call for tougher border enforcement.
