agreed to participate in the debate. issue of migration to another question on immigration, Romney reiterated his support immigration stance legal and find a permanent solution to repair a system that, again, is broken. Without going into details, Romney said a project to promote permanent residence granted to illegal immigrants who serve in the Armed Forces or students earning a degree at an American university , but did not specifically mention what to do with the 11 million and undocumented, most of them from Latin America. response to a question by Jorge Ramos on his position to

immigration issues must be solved in a bipartisan way between Democrats and Republicans. Democrats also asked not to follow "politicizing" the issue. 's promise Obama Romney also criticized the promise made ​​by President Barack Obama in 2008, when he promised immigration reform in the first year of his term. Romney insisted that he will seek a permanent solution. President "Obama get much
