President Obama has wrapped up his $1.6 million campaign event immigration reform speech in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“Now is the time for common sense, comprehensive immigration reform,” Obama said.
Piggybacking off of a bipartisan immigration reform plan presented by eight Senators yesterday, Obama called on Congress to quickly come up with legislation.
“We can’t allow immigration reform to get bogged down in endless debate,” Obama said. “For the first time in years, Republicans and Democrats seem ready to attack this problem together.”
Although Obama focused on further enforcement as a top priority for reform, he stressed the need to expedite 11 million illegal immigrants away from the shadows and into American society as citizens, a position bound to put the country into another post-1986 amnesty situation.
