Romney and Obama Vie for Latino Votes

Hosted by

During Republican primaries this year and in 2008, Mitt Romney took a tough line on illegal immigration.  In one of this year's GOP debates, he called the answer "self-deportation." With Hispanics of growing importance in this year's election, President Obama pulled a surprise last week, ordering a modified version of the Dream Act, giving a break to undocumented workers brought here as children under 16. Yesterday, Romney told Latino leaders the President could have done much more when Democrats controlled the Congress. Today, the President is speaking to the same audience (link to follow). Ruben Navarrette, a nationally syndicated columnist with the Washington Post Writers Group, says both have failed this country.
