Mitt Reacts Vaguely to Arizona Ruling

Mitt Romney has relatively little of substance to say about the Supreme Court’s ruling on Arizona’s controversial immigration law. The Republican presidential hopeful said that the high court’s decision to strike down key portions of the law was a sign that the U.S. is in need of someone who can “lead” on immigration, but offered little else in the way of a specific stance on the ruling. “President Obama has failed to provide any leadership on immigration. This represents yet another broken promise by this president,” Romney said in a statement. “I believe that each state has the duty—and the right—to secure our borders and preserve the rule of law, particularly when the federal government has failed to meet its responsibilities.”
