Obama's Plan for Comprehensive Immigration Reform


Tuesday, January 29th 2013, President Obama spoke live to the nation demanding immigration reform. "We do not need congress to pass the dream act, we need congress to act on a comprehensive immigration reform," stated President Obama. The President went so far to say that he will send his own Bill to Congress to enact comprehensive immigration reform if Congress fails to move fast enough.


Key Parts to Obama Immigration Reform 2013


1. The U.S. borders need to be secure, or as secure as we can make them.


2. Employers need to be checking the immigration status of employees (employment verification).


3. There needs to be a more direct path to citizenship for the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants.


4. There needs to be a more sustainable immigration system moving forward.


Strong Support for Immigration reform


There is strong support for immigration reform from the general public, economists, members of Congress and the Senate, and the President of the United States. The consensus has a little ways to  go before becoming a bill, but it is strikingly clear that immigration reform is not an "IF" but a "WHEN" in the year 2013.

Orlando Immigration Lawyers say Immigration Reform not an "IF" but a "WHEN"

Immigration reform is not an "IF" but a "WHEN." The current immigration policy is broken and Americans, rightfully so, want a new solution. In the wake of the recent election it is only a matter of time before politicians implement comprehensive immigration reform. The people have spoken and it is now time for lawmakers to act.
