Will they deported after all when their two years are up? Would Mitt Romney rescind the order if he reached the White House? The President says he supports the "Dream Act," which would offer permanent residency, but he's also deported more people than George W. Bush. In a bid for the Latino vote, is he creating more anxiety and confusion rather than less?
