COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina Republicans have been making their voices heard on a proposed overhaul of the nation's immigration policy.
The White House and senators of both parties announced they had worked out a deal earlier this week. The proposed reforms would toughen border and workplace enforcement, yet offer legal status and an ultimate path to citizenship to (m) millions of undocumented workers.
At South Carolina's Republican convention today, a crowd of about one-thousand delegates cheered when former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney criticized the bill. Romney told them there should be "one simple rule: no amnesty."
