Romney challenges Obama record on immigration, asking why Obama failed to pass an immigration bill during his first term.
Obama says the U.S. is a nation of immigrants. Obama says young people who have come here understand themselves as Americans and that the nation should make sure it gives them a pathway to citizenship.

Obama says Romney encouraged self-deportation and called the Arizona law a "model for the nation."
