Romney talks immigration, guv OKs Medicaid expansion and Utahns take to the streets over guns


Mitt Romney discusses his stance on Dreamers and promotes a merit-based U.S. immigration system. Utah Gov. Gary Herbert signs a Medicaid expansion bill that could cover 70,000 low-income Utahns if the federal government approves it. And thousands of students and supporters march against gun violence just after a counterdemonstration from gun-rights activists.
