Romney Claims GOP Will Pass Immigration Reform If They Retake The Senate

Mitt Romney wants Americans to believe we won't have any more of that nasty gridlock we've seen since the day President Obama was elected if we just give Republicans some more power.

Mitt Romney did his best to pretend that Republicans aren't going to just continually obstruct as they have for the last six years if they manage to take back the Senate and told Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace that they'd pass an immigration reform bill that will actually make it through the House.

Romney: GOP Senate Will Send Immigration Bill To Obama's Desk:

Mitt Romney on Sunday said that if Republicans win the Senate majority, Congress will be able to pass an immigration bill in both houses.

The former Massachusetts governor and presidential candidate said that a GOP Senate would enable Republicans to break the "blockade" of Senate Democrats and send legislation to Obama.

"You’re going to see a big provision first of all to secure the border, second of all to deal with those who come here illegally, and third to make sure that our immigration policies are more open and transparent to the many people who do want to come here illegally," Romney said on "Fox News Sunday" about immigration reform.

"You're going to see a bill actually reach the desk of the president if we finally have someone besides Harry Reid sitting in the Senate. We're going to get it done," he continued.

The Senate passed a bipartisan immigration reform bill, but the House never brought it up for a vote. Romney said that with Republicans controlling both houses, Congress will be able to find legislation that will pass through both chambers.

I'll believe it when I see it. The Senate already passed a bipartisan bill and the House killed it. With them talking about even more gains for Republicans in the House, if anything their caucus is going to move even further to the right, not less.
