Governor Mitt Romney On Immigration Reform

Boston, MA "“ Today, Governor Mitt Romney issued the following statement on Senator John McCain's (R-AZ) immigration remarks in Miami, Florida:
"The policies we enact have important consequences on the American public with regard to economic and national security.
"The immigration approach proposed by Senators McCain and Kennedy falls short of a workable solution to an important problem. I respect Senator McCain, but my opposition to his bill is a matter of principled disagreement about policies and priorities related to enforcement of our immigration laws.
"In reforming our immigration system, we must meet three priorities. First, we can and must secure our borders. Second, our country must have an enforceable employment verification system. Third, in reforming our immigration system, we must do so in a way that rewards immigrants who obey the laws and guards against providing special incentives for those who show no regard for them."
