What Can Mitt Say About Immigration?
salon.com — Mitt Romney has three basic choices for the speech he will deliver to a conference of Latino leaders later today: He can break with his practice of never agreeing with President Obama on anything, ever; he can continue it and plant himself even more firmly on the right; or he can keep looking like a slippery politician who’s trying to have it both ways. Romney is due to address the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials in Orlando later today. It’s unclear what exactly he’ll say – reports indicate that he and his team were still working on the speech yesterday – but presumably he’ll lay out at least the broad framework of an immigration policy. But with his decision last week to make up to 800,000 children of illegal immigrants eligible for work permits Obama deprived Romney of the path to the middle he seemed to be eying.
