On the campaign trail for the Republican presidential nomination, Mitt Romney comments on "illegal immigration" and family reunification:
Romney also called for major immigration reform and suggested that policies that allow the families of children of illegal immigrants born in America to come into the country should be changed.

``I ... don't think it makes sense to have an immigration policy that says that if an illegal couple — a couple that comes across the border illegally — has a child here, that child becomes a U.S. citizen, that then the whole family gets to come in, if you will, through 'chain migration,''' he said.
