President Barack Obama is telling Latino voters their choice in the election "will not be that difficult" because he's the only one who backs comprehensive immigration reform.

In a reference to Mitt Romney, Obama says the GOP's "leading candidate" would even veto the Dream Act, which gives a pathway to citizenship to children here illegally if they attend college or join the military. Romney has said he would support modified legislation that applies only to young people who join the military.

Despite Obama's support for reform, he has made little progress on immigration. He blames congressional Republicans, saying they are unwilling to work on the issue.

Obama spoke during an interview with Eddie "Piolin" Sotelo, a Hispanic radio personality.
