In the past, Mitt Romney has said he supports finding a solution for undocumented students. But you wouldn't know it from his Wednesday speech on education to Latino business leaders, where the issue went untouched, forgotten, leaving some audience members concerned that he simply doesn't have a plan.
Romney has been flip flopping on the Dream Act all year. He said in January that he would VETO the current version of the Dream Act, which passed the House and was defeated by Republicans in the Senate in 2010.
In March, he flipped and said he could support other efforts to help the Dreamers, including an ambiguous bill proposed by Republican Sen. Marco Rubio with NO path to citizenship for the students.
However, Romney AGAIN FLIPPED in April saying he wasn't supporting the proposal, instead he told reporters, "I'm taking a LOOK at his proposal; it has many features to commend it, BUT it's something that we’re (just) studying,”
Flip Flop Romney's failure to mention the Dream Act, or similar legislative efforts, wasn't the only missed opportunity to discuss education issues important to Latinos. Romney also did not address the education gap between Latinos and students in general, an issue his campaign and the Republican National Committee have highlighted in outreach efforts.
The Romney campaign did not respond to requests for comment on why the candidate's speech skipped these important issues.
