The 2012 Presidental Election and Immigration

"Romney did not Etch-a-Sketch. He looked the woman questioner. . .in the eyes and forthrightly said 'we’re going to have to stop illegal immigration,' mentioning universal E-Verify and no driver’s licenses, and again endorsing attrition through enforcement or, in his formulation, 'self-deportation.'"

- Mark Krikorian, CIS Executive Director

"The president also made clear that his illegal DREAM decree really is intended to be a permanent amnesty, not just a temporary reprieve from deportation: 'And we should make sure that we give them a pathway to citizenship. And that’s what I’ve done administratively.'"

- Mark Krikorian, CIS Executive Director
