Romney: GOP Will Put Immigration Bill on Obama's Desk

By    |   Sunday, 02 November 2014 10:48 AM

Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, says members of his party will pass immigration legislation when they gain seats in Congress.

"You’re going to see a provision, first of all, to secure the border," Romney said on "Fox News Sunday."

"Second of all, to deal with those who come here illegally. And third, to make sure our immigration policies are more open and transparent ... You’re going to see a bill actually reach the desk of the president if we finally have someone besides Harry Reid sitting in the Senate."

Romney admitted, "I can't tell you whether we're going to win the Senate on Tuesday, but I can tell you we're going to pick up a lot of seats." He said Tuesday's midterms are vital to make a statement to President Barack Obama as he enters his last two years in office.

"This is really the last chance for America to pass judgment on the Obama administration and on its policies," he said.

Those policies, Romney said, have led to some degree the rise of the Islamic State (ISIS.) He also said they have shown a violation of fundamental promise of Obamacare that people could keep their doctors and their insurance plans.

A Republican Senate, Romney said, would pass trade promotion authority, which Obama has been pushing, but the Senate, under Majority Leader Harry Reid, has stalled.

After a session of hardly any legislation clearing Congress, Romney said Republicans will get plenty of bills to Obama's desk, some of which he will sign, others of which he will veto.

"But I think, at that point, we'll find who really is the party of 'No,'" Romney said.
