Governor Romney Will End Deferment Program

October 15, 2012
Plain English Version

What is Governor Romney’s view of the deferment program?  He says undocumented young people already granted deferments would keep them. Otherwise, the program is over.

All new applicants will be turned down. His spokesman said, “We are not going to continue Obama’s program. We are going to replace it and only honor visas already granted.” Advocates note that the program does not give students visas to stay in the United States.

Another spokesman added that Mr. Romney would not deport undocumented students who would have been eligible for a deferral. However, without deferrals being granted, it is not clear how as President Romney could protect young undocumented students from deportation.

Mr. Romney has promised an immigration reform plan but has not said what it will be.

President Obama spoke to a rally of young Latinos and said, “You are the reason why a young immigrant who grew up here and went to school here, and pledged allegiance to our flag, will no longer be deported from the only country she’s ever called home.”

Immigration policy was not mentioned at the first Presidential debate.
