Moments ago, Mitt Romney discussed his views on Obama’s new immigration policy, saying, “Young people that come here for no fault of their own is an important matter to be considered and should be solved on a long-term basis so they know what their future would be in this country. I think the action that the president took today makes it more difficult to reach that long-term solution because an executive order is, of course, just a short-term matter - it can be reversed by subsequent presidents.”

Romney stated that he agrees with Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on this issue, and that if

Romney becomes president he promises to do his very best to have a long-term solution that would provide certainty and clarity for the people entering this country by the action of their parents.

Read the full statement below, and watch video of his response:

"I believe the status of young people who come here through no fault of their own is an important matter to be considered and should be solved on a long-term basis, so they know what their future would be in this country. I think the action that the president took today makes it more difficult to reach that long-term solution because an executive order is, of course, just a short-term matter - it can be reversed by subsequent presidents. I'd like to see legislation that deals with this issue, and I happen to agree with Marco Rubio as he looked at this issue. He said that this is an important matter, that we have to find a long-term solution, but that the president's action makes reaching a long-term solution more difficult. If I'm president, we'll do our very best to have that kind of long-term solution that provides certainty and clarity for the people who come into this country through no fault of their own by virtue of the action of their parents."
