LOS ANGELES (AP) - Republican Mitt Romney is making a fresh appeal to Latino voters and trying to cut into President Barack Obama's advantage with a key portion of the electorate.

Romney, in Los Angeles to address the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, says he'll work with both parties to address immigration and push economic policies to help small-business owners. He accused Obama of "playing politics" by pursuing a temporary measure to exempt from deportation immigrants who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children.

Romney says he will pursue "permanent immigration reform."

In a video address, Obama got applause when he talked about the temporary measure for young immigrants. He said he pursued it because Republicans blocked legislation giving a pathway to citizenship to the young immigrants.
