Mitt Romney sought to repair the damage from his "47 percent" remarks, saying here today he is concerned about the well-being of all voters at a "Meet the Candidate" event sponsored by Univision.
"My campaign is about the 100 percent of America," Romney said in a refrain he would repeat four times during the 45-minute event. "I know I'm not going to get 100 percent of the vote, and my campaign will focus on those people we think we can bring in to support it," he said. "But this campaign is about helping people who need help."
Romney, 65, was also pressed on the hot-button issue of immigration by Univision anchors Jorge Ramos and Maria Elena Salinas at the BankUnited Center Field House on the University of Miami campus. The candidate emphasized that he would expand legal immigration and said that he wouldn't aggressively pursue undocumented immigrants living in the United States. "I am not going to be going around the country and rounding them up," he said.
"I believe people make their own choices as to whether they want to go home and that's what I mean by 'self deportation,'"

After he got caught saying that he wasn't worried about 47% of Americans, he's now saying that his campaign is about 100% of America

Since part of the video of Romney saying the 47% will not vote for him was deleted we don't know exactly what he said.
The Globe said Romney, for an entire decade, used a landscaping company that relied on illegal Guatemalan immigrants. Employees at the company, Community Lawn Service with a Heart, said its owner hadn't asked them to provide documents showing their immigration status. The workers said they were paid $9 to $10 an hour, in cash, for working sometimes 11 hours a day.
