Romney won’t deport immigrants who have Obama’s deferred action status

By Liz Goodwin, Yahoo! News | The Ticket

Mitt Romney told The Denver Post on Monday that if he's elected president, he will not cancel President Barack Obama's deferred action program for young illegal immigrants before instituting another immigration plan:

"The people who have received the special visa that the president has put in place, which is a two-year visa, should expect that the visa would continue to be valid. I'm not going to take something that they've purchased," Romney said. "Before those visas have expired we will have the full immigration reform plan that I've proposed."

Obama announced a new policy in June that allows young illegal immigrants under 30 relief from the threat of deportation and a two-year work permit if they came to the country as children and are currently attending or have graduated high school. The two-year deferred action status is renewable, but Romney suggested in the interview that he would replace it with his own plan, which he didn't elaborate on. Previously, he's said young illegal immigrants should be able to earn citizenship by joining the military, but has indicated that the rest of the country's illegal immigrants should self-deport.
