Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney took more than five hours to respond to President Barack Obama's shift in U.S. immigration policy. The President by executive order will suspend the deportations of young illegal immigrants who entered the United States as children if they meet certain requirements.
Romney said Pres. Obama policy makes it tougher to make a long-term fix.

More than five hours after news broke of President Barack Obama's shift in immigration rules, his Republican challenger for the White House said the United States needed a longer term solution to the problem.
"I believe the status of young people who come here through no fault of their own is an important matter to be considered, and should be solved on a long-term basis so they know what their future would be in this country," Romney said after a campaign stop in Milford, New Hampshire.
