Romney Says He Won’t Revoke Obama Amnesty Status
“Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Monday that illegal immigrants who receive temporary work permits because of the executive order issued by President Barack Obama would be allowed to keep them under a Romney administration,” The Hill reported.
“‘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.

Gordon Crovitz in the Wall Street Journal.
“Companies are now even willing to pay a new tax for permission to hire skilled workers. At a Brookings Institution event last week, Microsoft proposed more open borders in exchange for employers paying $10,000 per visa and $15,000 per green card.
