Arizona and Alabama Laws

and filed a federal lawsuit against them.
Romney has called Arizona "a model" for the nation, referring to an e-verify
part of the law that requires that employers check prospect workers against the e-verify system.
- Has deported in the last 4 years over 1.5 millions illegal immigrants. That is more than
Clinton and Bush COMBINED.
- Has created via executive action a path for citizenship to up to 1.7 million young immigrants under the
program "dream act" where his administration would grant a two-year work permit and deferral of deportation to
young illegal immigrants who arrived as children.
- As governor of Massachusetts, Romney vetoed a state law similar to the Dream Act
- Regarding Obama's dream act program he has said that he will not continue it.
Obama supports legislation that would increase the amount of skilled foreigners that get
a special visa and or a green card.
Favors legal immigration from highly educated and skilled workers. He is a critic of current
limit of high-skilled visas.
