-- Several national media outlets are trying to suggestthat a Mitt Romney flip flop on the issue of illegal immigration is imminent now thatRomney is the presumptive winner of the GOP primary. ALIPACis issuing a nationaladvisory that such a radical shift could spell doom for the Romney campaign and thecountry.Mitt Romney (857-288-3500) is currently experiencing a surge in support as GOP votersbegin coalescing behind his campaign after one of the most dramatic GOP Presidentialprimaries in modern history.Mitt Romney won the primary by addressing the top issue of illegal immigration from anenforcement only approach.

Romney promised primaryvoters that millions of illegal aliens would be forced out of America, that he would veto theDream Act Amnesty, and that Arizona's controversial immigration law would be his "modelfor the nation"."Any reversal on these positions would destroy his credibility, alienate Conservative American voters who outnumber Latino voters, and exert the same pressures on MittRomney that destroyed John McCain and Rick Perry's campaigns," said William Gheenwho is a prior GOP campaign consultant and current President of ALIPAC. "Not onlywould a Romney shift on immigration hurt him among Americans concerned about illegalimmigration but it would signal that he cannot be trusted on any issue or topicwhatsoever."If Mitt Romney (857-288-3500) betrays his promises to voters and his constitutionalobligation to enforce America's existing border and immigration laws, then Americanvoters will have been tricked.
