Obama: New Policy ‘Falls Short’

President Obama declared Friday that his new immigration policy, which blocks the deportation of the children of illegal immigrants, “falls short of where we need to be.” While addressing the National Association of Latino Elected Officials, the President also promised to fight for a “comprehensive” immigration bill. Pointing out that Mitt Romney has promised, if elected, to veto the “DREAM Act,” Obama insisted, “we should have passed the DREAM Act a long time ago.” The President currently has a huge lead over Romney among Latino voters.
