I will put in an immigration reform plan that solves this issue. What you said is not very clear. On January 26 you told me that you were in favor of self-deportation. In a debate in the primary on February 22 you said that you thought that the Arizona model was a model to follow.
Are you going to deport them or not? I think I have some friends apparently. People decide if they want to go back to the country of their origin and get in line legally to be able to come to this country. Look, legal immigration is critical for America.
Transcript: Univision ‘s “Meet the Candidate” forum with Mitt Romney
I love legal immigration. No nation on earth brings in a million people a year into their country. This country lives, in part, by virtue of the vitality of our legal immigration system. And by the way, in my view, if employers hire people that they know are not here legally, there should be tough sanctions on those employers.
Is the Arizona model for immigration one we should follow for the whole country? And so states are doing their best to try and solve it state by state. And one aspect of the Arizona law, which I think is worthwhile to consider and part of the federal solution, is this idea of an employment verification system.
Governor, as we know, 40 percent of Hispanics that go to college, at least one out of four have Pell Grants. We have one of the students here that wants to ask you a question regarding that. Governor, my name is Connie Fossi.
I study political science and journalism at University of Miami. As many students do, I depend on financial aid that the government gives me to be able to attend university, including the Pell Grant. This is my question. Are you going here at the University of Miami? Is President Shalala here somewhere? Under that program, those who graduated from high school and passed our graduation exam, those who passed it in the top quarter of their high school got a four-year tuition free ride to the Massachusetts institutions of higher learning that are public.
I think the Republican budget called for a Pell Grants being capped out at their current high level. My inclination would be to have them go with the rate of inflation. And my view is we have to hold down the rate of tuition increases and fee increases in higher education. You know that Hispanics, we have a serious problem with unemployment — Facebook sent us a question. Can you answer with something specific? How are you going to create 12 million new jobs?
There are two million more Hispanics living in poverty today than when the President took office.
But let me describe what they are. Number one, we have an enormous advantage with our energy resources. Taking full advantage of oil, coal, natural gas, nuclear and renewables will create about four million jobs by itself. We have to make sure that our people have the skills to succeed. I want to get our training programs to do that, and I want to make sure our kids in school get the kind of skills they need for the jobs of tomorrow.
Our schools are not performing at the level they should. I want to put the kids and the teachers first. We have to have a pro-small business agenda. Taxes, regulations, health care, all those things encouraging small business. Small business, of course, Hispanic Americans lead in creating small businesses over the population at large.
Governor, as we know, student loan debt has reached a record high of over 1 trillion dollars. Good afternoon, Governor Romney. What specific steps will you take to — as President — to ease the debt burden of a million young people, and promote a better future for higher education?
The best thing I can do for you and for other young people graduating from University of Miami is make sure that when you get out of the University of Miami, you have a job, all right. And so my agenda is making sure that this economy, once again, is creating the kind of jobs that make sure that people coming out of college can get good jobs.Paul Ryan Looking For Compromise On Tax Reform (Full Interview) - Meet The Press - NBC News
They started their careers and that provides them the income growth that they can start a family, they can build a future. On Facebook, Margarita Martinez asks: Well, first of all, I would repeal all of Obamacare and replace it with I think the kinds of reforms we really need. And I have experience in healthcare reform. This was during my primary. Some will copy what we did; others will find better solutions.
But the nature of the American experiment has been letting states build plans and ideas that work for each of them, share those ideas with one another.
Romney Meet the Press Interview: Proof That Romney and Ryan Are Full of Flip Flops
The government is going to ultimately have a board that tells you what kind of care you can receive. That, in my opinion, is not the right way to go in healthcare.
The approach that I would propose is one which will give individuals choice as opposed to government choice. It will keep the cost of healthcare from going through the roof as it has been, and I believe it will allow people to continue to have the relationship with their doctor and their provider that they want.
Thank you for being with us and accepting to speak with us during this important conversation for Hispanics. We thank you and President Obama for being with us during these conversations. I think there is a question about our neighbors south of the border in Mexico. He will inherit a drug war that has taken more than 65, lives in the past six years. If he was right here in front of you — not as a joke — if he was sitting over here. The fact that there is a drug world, narco-crime and terrorism, and that these cartels are terrorizing the people of Mexico, and some of that violence spills over our border.
And so the President of the United States, and I would say this to him, that the President of the United States must make a priority of helping reduce demand in this country, and communicating to our young people, and older people, that when they use these illegal drugs, they are contributing to the deaths of people around the world. But I would want him and his government to know that we stand ready to help in this effort because we understand.
This is a shared concern. Our economies can thrive together. That has to be a priority again for the President of the United States. Of course, the U. Declaration of Independence says that we have all been created equal. However, you have said openly that you oppose same sex marriages and you want to change the Constitution to ban them.
But I have grandchildren. And I love my children and I love my grandchildren. And I would, of course, want them to be happy.
My view is this, that individuals should be able to pursue a relationship of love and respect, and raise a family as they would choose. I can see rights, such as hospital visitation rights, and similar types of things, being provided to those individuals.
But marriage for me continues to be a relationship between a man and a woman. Governor, in the Republican Party Platform … during your convention … there were calls for English to be the official language of the United States. You are here tonight with us in Spanish so we imagine that you also support the idea that there is an important role for Spanish in this country.
What role should Spanish play in America? Well, you know, English is the language of government in this country. But I take some inspiration from the comments of Governor Luis Fortuno, who is an extraordinary governor of Puerto Rico. English is the language of opportunity. But then we spent some time on the campaign trail. I got to meet his wife and three children and was very impressed. But the final decision, Bob, was not until really August 1st when I kept my mind open, but I was intrigued and inclined towards Paul for some time, but I kept my mind open, and then on August 1st it was time to make that final decision.
I called Paul and said, "I'd like to meet you on Sunday. Well, what was it that did it? Well, you know, this is a guy who's a real leader. There are a lot of people who go to Washington or go to their state houses with a personal ambition in mind. Paul had a very different course laid out for his life. And became convinced that he was needed to try and get the country back on track. And he has gone to Washington with a passion for making a difference. Has this sunk in on you yet? Because I've felt for a while now that our country is in a very perilous position.
And I've done everything I could in my career as chairman of the Budget Committee to try and make a difference to tackle this economic and fiscal challenge before it tackles us.
Sunday is when we had this conversation and it took a little while to sink in after that, but to see all Americans coming out to these rallies, hungry for solutions, hungry for people that provide leadership to get this country on the right track, I'm very excited about this.
