- Immigration Reform July 4
At a naturalization ceremony at the White House today, President Obama reiterated his commitment to immigration reform. "I'm going to keep doing everything I can to make our immigration system smarter and more efficient," he said.
As Politico points out, this came at the end of a week in which he blasted Congressional Republicans for their inaction on a range of issues and swore to take executive action to fix the U.S. immigration system. He has asked his staff to recommend what specific action he can take by the end of the summer.
"We're going to have to fix our immigration system, which is broken, and pass common sense immigration reform," Obama went on to say today. "We shouldn't be making it harder for the best and the brightest to come here …we should be making it easier."- -
