1/1/12 Mitt Romney seems determined to prove that he can be the kind of right-wing extremist that Iowa’s GOP caucus voters are looking for.
Romney said Saturday that as President, he would veto the DREAM Act, which provides a path to citizenship for children of undocumented immigrants if they attend college or serve in the military.
