    Mitt Romney: Republicans Should 'Swallow Hard,' Pass 'Permanent' Amnesty Bill

    by Tony Lee 26 Nov 2014, 7:22 PM PDT

    Former Massachusetts Governor and failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney believes Republicans should "swallow hard" and pass a permanent amnesty bill in the wake of President Barack Obama's executive amnesty that even Romney conceded would encourage more illegal immigrants to enter the country.

    Romney recently told Spanish-language Univision that Obama is "giving people false hope" and "communicating to people outside this country, ‘Hey, get into the United States illegally and stay, because they’ll always let you stay.'”

    Romney's solution is for Congress to pass a “permanent clarification of our immigration laws so that people know where they stand," because Obama's executive amnesty is only temporary. But Romney said that he was "pretty confident that what the president’s doing will so inflame passions on the part of many in my party… that they will be far less likely to move aggressively on the type of permanent reform that’s so badly needed." He hoped the party could work on some piecemeal solutions on immigration to get the ball rolling.

    "Maybe even then, Republicans will swallow hard and say, 'OK, even despite the fact that we now have a stick in our eye launched by the president, we’re going to go ahead and try and see if we can’t make some improvements to the immigration system,'" Romney said. "I hope we’re able to do that.”

    Appearing on Fox News Sunday right before the midterms, in which Republicans were about to take back Congress largely because voters disapproved of Obama on illegal immigration, Romney said or a potential GOP-led Congress: "You're going to see a provision first of all to secure the border, second of all, to deal with those who have come here illegally and, third, to make sure our immigration policies are open and transparent to many people who do want to come here illegally. That's going to happen."

    "You're going to see a bill actually reach the desk of the president, if we finally have someone besides Harry Reid sitting in the Senate," he said then, emphasizing that, "we're going to get it done, I think."

    Speaking to Univision, Romney did acknowledge that the "nation voted overwhelmingly against the president’s policies" but indicated that he still felt the new Congress should pass a more permanent amnesty bill.

    “He may not have liked what the prior Congress did or did not do. But there is a new Congress about to be sworn in in January, and he should give that Congress the opportunity to do what they said they’ll do, which is to work together to put legislation on his desk," Romney told Univision.

    Well, the Repubs big money donors want amnesty, so I'm not sure how much concrete action we can expect from the new majority's leadership.

    If anybody is serious about securing the border, Universal E-Verify would do that, for pennies on the enforcement dollar. (E-Verify is an inexpensive, online way for employers to verify that applicants are entitled to work in the United States.) A five year phase in of E-Verify was included in the Senate's immigration bill. Let's see if the Repubs are up for a short term funding bill, and a bill to implement Universal E-Verify.

    IMO Senator Jeff Sessions is the patriots best hope for legislation which would actually be in the best interests of Americans.

    Mitt Romney is not the answer. Forget him and anything he says. Americans don't want people to come here illegally, and most Americans now realize that even the number of legal immigrants allowed to come here on an annual basis is way too high. Over 1.3 million a year in new legal immigrants?! OH MY GOD! Where are they to live, what are they to do? Well, 58% of all immigrants, legal and illegal are on some form of welfare, so enough said. We need to dramatically reduce the number of legal immigrants and give all illegals the boot. Period. This is not complicated. It's 3rd grade math. Very simple.

    People In (immigration) + Jobs Out (free trade) = Bankrupt Nation

    aaaaaaah Mitten's ... the Barack Obama Lite of the Republican Party sitting safely behind armed guards in gated communities, passing Gray Pupon says you must allow illegal immigrants to take your jobs and destroy your communities while gang bangers shoot up the neighborhoods, rape your daughters, girls/women and pump drugs into your kids

    I do not see the super wealthy as people who can govern as they are so far out of touch with modern America, we need someone who is pro-America who came up through the ranks of life working hard, right now I do not see that individual. The chamber of commerce is in charge of the GOP, amnesty would help them not us.

    Geee, I wonder if a few million Republicans will notice that Romney's statements like this one in favor of amnesty for millions of illegal aliens prove he was lying his ass off about enforcing our existing immigration laws when he ran for President last time.

    I have republican friends who claim that republicans do not want the White House is why they ran this guy and McCain. If Romney is still the best offering from the P-WAPS, it would appear that those friends are correct!!

    Since this was on Univision, did Romney say all of that in Spanish? In either language, he's an enemy of the people!
