Report: Mitt Romney Is The Most Radical GOP Presidential Candidate On Mass Deportations

ThinkProgress guest bloggers Ann Garcia and Mayu Takeda compiled a lengthy and comprehensive list of each of the Republican presidential candidates’ stances on immigration. It includes some surprising details — including the fact that the supposedly moderate GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney is the only candidate to suggest that he supports mass deportation, so long as undocumented immigrants who have been in the United States for several years are given “enough time to organize their affairs and go home.”

All positions current as of Nov. 8.
