GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney criticized the timing of President Obama’s order last week to stop deporting some undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children. But Romney wouldn’t say Sunday on CBS News’ “Face the Nation” whether he would reverse the order if he became president. Romney would only say that “there needs to be a long-term solution.” Romney has been trying to soften his stances on immigration since the GOP primaries, when he called for illegal immigrants to “self-deport” and was endorsed by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach. Meanwhile, Obama’s order is playing well among Latinos. Nearly 50 percent of Latino voters in five swing states said the order made them more enthusiastic about Obama, according to a Latino Decisions survey.
