WASHINGTON -- Mitt Romney criticized President Barack Obama Sunday for failing to pass long-term immigration reform through Congress, but he repeatedly refused to say whether he would overturn Obama's decision to end deportaion for some young undocumented immigrants if he becomes president.
Host Bob Schieffer asked Romney three times whether he would repeal Obama's directive as president.
The first time, Romney ignored the question. The second time, he said it would be a non-issue because he would be able to pass long-term immigration reform through Congress quickly -- something that President George W. Bush was unable to do, in large part because of opposition from his own party.
"Well, it would be overtaken by events if you will, by virtue of my putting in place a long-term solution, with legislation which creates law that relates to these individuals such that they know what their setting is going to be, not just for the term of a president but on a permanent basis," said Romney.
On Schieffer's third try, Romney went only so far as to say he'd consider repealing it. "We'll look at that setting as we reach that, but my anticipation is I'd come into office and say we need to get this done, on a long-term basis, not this kind of stop-gap measure."
