Arizona DREAMers to Protest Mitt Romney’s Arizona Visit for his opposition to President Obama’s new directive
Scottsdale, AZ – On Monday June 25th, Arizona DREAMers in Phoenix will hold a press conference with Latino leaders on Mitt Romney’s visit to Arizona. The DREAMers will also be at his Scottsdale fundraiser where they will demand that he directly respond to whether he supports President Obama’s new immigration policy.
Most recently, Mitt Romney adviser Ed Gillespie said President Obama’s decision not to deport undocumented students would be reviewed and could be repealed by Romney if he becomes president. “All of these are subject to review and repeal,” Gillespie said in an interview on CNN.
After over a week of refusing to say whether or not he’d repeal the Obama administration’s immigration action, the Latino community is taking his silence as a clear opposition to President’s new policy. This places Romney on the wrong side of an issue important to Latinos. According to recent poll, Latinos overwhelmingly support the president’s action to stop the deportation of undocumented youth.
