President Obama swiped Mitt Romney on Friday for having a “different view” on immigration and told Hispanic leaders they should take Romney “at his word” that he would veto the DREAM Act.
Speaking to the National Association of Latino Elected Officials (NALEO) the day after Romney addressed the group, Obama sought to telegraph the message that he’s the candidate who has the best interests of the Hispanic community — a group critical to his reelection — at heart.
Referring to Romney as “your speaker from yesterday,” Obama reminded the crowd of a promise the former governor made during the Republican primaries.
“In his speech he said that when he makes a promise to you, he’ll keep it,” Obama said. “Well, he has promised to veto the DREAM Act, and we should take him at his word.”
