Mitt Romney Still Figuring Out His Position On Immigration Reform
“As a candidate, to my understanding, he’s still deciding what his position on immigration is,” according to Bettina Inclan the RNC’s director of Hispanic outreach.
Inclan was speaking at an RNC event unveiling six new regional staffers who will direct Hispanic outreach in swing states. But asked how the RNC will speak with Hispanic voters about immigration, Inclan said she couldn’t speak about what policies GOP candidates would put forth.
“He’s talked about different issues,” she said of Romney. “There’s a very diverse opinion on how to deal with immigration.”
During the GOP primary, Romney tacked to the right on immigration. He embraced parts of Arizona’s controversial immigration crackdown, vowed to veto the DREAM Act path to citizenship (though he later said he’d make an exception for the military service portion) and spoke of “self-deportation” as the solution to the millions of illegal immigrants who are living in the United States.
