It has been 10 days since President Obama announced his new policy to protect DREAM Act-eligible young adults from deportation, and even after Mitt Romney’s immigration speech last week, the GOP presidential candidate’s campaign still won’t say if he would keep the policy in place.
Instead, Romney adviser Ed Gillespie told CNN’s Candy Crowley Sunday morning that the former governor would review and potentially repeal all of Obama’s executive actions if elected. And Gillespie dismissed Obama’s directive to stop deportations as a politically motivated move to win Latino voters:
GILLESPIE: Between now and November, it’s clear that the Oval Office is an extension of the Obama campaign headquarters and they’re going to make a lot of political moves, and there are a lot of other target demographics that the president will try to appeal to with executive actions.
CROWLEY: [...] But you can’t tell me today whether he would leave that in place?
GILLESPIE: What I’m telling you is that all of these are subject to review and repeal.
