An immigration enforcement activist is warning GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney against flip-flopping on his pledge for strong border enforcement if he's elected president.

In the days since Rick Santorum's departure from the GOP presidential scene, several news media outlets are trying to suggest that Romney, now the presumptive winner of the GOP nomination, will flip-flop on the issue of illegal immigration.
But William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration (ALIPAC) warns that such a radical shift could spell doom for the Romney campaign.
"Mitt Romney has promised that millions of illegal immigrants are going to be leaving the United States because of his enforcement of the existing immigration laws. Mitt Romney has promised us that the Arizona law is actually the template for the nation," Gheen notes. "And any divergence from him past the primary point that we're at now will be highly destructive to his campaign [and] highly beneficial to the Obama campaign."
The ALIPAC president concludes that if Romney flip-flops on immigration, it will demonstrate that he cannot be trusted and that the country would be no better under Romney's leadership than it is under Barack Obama's.
