Excerpted from Buzz Feed: Mitt Romney criticized the Supreme Court’s ruling on Arizona’s immigration law at a fundraiser in Scottsdale Monday afternoon, according to a pool report.
“Now, you probably heard today there was a Supreme Court decision relating to immigration, and given the failure of the immigration policy in this country,” said Romney, “I would have preferred to see the Supreme Court give more latitude to the states, not less. And there are states now under this decision have less authority, less latitude to enforce immigration laws.”
He continued: “And there are states now under this decision have less authority, less latitude to enforce immigration laws.”
Romney’s shot at the Court comes hours after he released another, more vague statement in which he failed to address whether he agreed with the ruling. Already, pressure was mounting from the press and Democrats — including President Obama — to come down with a clear position.
