As the Republican presidential contenders prepare for the Iowa caucus tomorrow they fielded questions from audiences throughout the weekend.

One such question brought to light what leading contender, Mitt Romney, would do if the ‘Dream Act’ would reach his desk once elected President

Veto it he says.  If conservative Latino voters who are in favor of the DREAM Act wondered where Romney stood it is pretty clear cut.

No surprise when Romney has officially staked out ‘the most extreme immigration position possible: the removal of every undocumented immigrant in the nation.’

The Dream Act that would give legal status to undocumented students under certain conditions has been around the halls of Congress for over 10 years and suffered its last defeat in December of 2010. 

“The question is, if I were elected and Congress were to pass the Dream Act, would I veto it? And the answer is yes,” said the candidate, speaking in Le Mars, Iowa.  He did however add that he approved of offering legal status to people who serve in the U.S. military.
