Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney promised a pro-family immigration reform agenda
in remarks to the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) today, speaking broadly to American Families United's agenda, and specifically to green cards for spouses of permanent residents:
"Our immigration system should help promote strong families, not keep them apart. Our nation benefits when moms and dads and their kids are all living together under the same roof. But, today, too many families are caught in a broken system that costs them time and money and entangles them in red tape. For those seeking to come to America the right way, that kind of bureaucratic nightmare has to end. And we can do this with just a few common-sense reforms.
As President, I will reallocate Green Cards to those seeking to keep their families under one roof. We will exempt from caps the spouses and minor children of legal permanent residents. And we will eliminate other forms of bureaucratic red tape that keep families from being together."
