Romney: Gingrich pandering to Hispanics, supported self-deportation himself once
During a debate earlier this week, Mitt Romney said he favors self-deportation over policies that would require the federal government to round up millions of illegal immigrants and send them back to their home countries. Advocates of Romney's approach argue that illegal immigration can be curbed by denying public benefits to them, prompting them to leave the United States on their own.
