Phoenix group backs Romney, rejects McCain immigration stand

A Phoenix organization critical of Arizona Sen. John McCain's immigration policy is backing former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in the presidential race.

The group, Mothers Against Illegal Aliens, is looking for a get-tough approach to illegal immigration including stiff penalties against businesses that hire illegal immigrants.

Business interests have opposed such sanctions, instead backing a guest worker plan and pathway to legal status for illegals already in the U.S. McCain also has advocated such a plan.

In a statement, Michelle Dallacroce, a USAF Veteran, a mother and President and Founder of Mothers Against Illegal Aliens, said "As a mother, I know that respect for the Rule of Law and the enforcement of our laws that have been ignored, will ensure that our American children enjoy the promises that we as parents have made to them. With Mitt Romney as our President, the American Dream and our Nation, will remain alive and well. There is only one real statesman who happens to be Republican who seeks to lead this nation as our President, and that man is Governor Mitt Romney!"
