Romney - DACA Applicants Safe For Two Years

Mitt Romney is walking a fine line right now. He's now promised that DACA applicants will not have their approvals revoked. He's not making any promises on extending the program and is only guaranteeing he'll push through immigration reform. This sounds like it means a smooth transition for DACA applicants. But what does he include in immigration reform? He has said he is against any form of amnesty and would veto the DREAM Act. And even if his reform proposal was like George W. Bush's, what if it doesn't pass? Then what? Silence from the Romney camp.

Note: I'm speaking at a conference in Ireland this week so am blogging via my phone and tablet. So please excuse my having to paste links rather than embedding them. And hat tip to AV for the link.
