State of the Union: President Pleads for Immigration Reform


WASHINGTON- On January, 25 2012 the president the of the United States of America, Barak Obama, gave his State of the Union Address to Congress in Washington.

 

His State of the Union Address covered past, present and future issues such as Taxes, Business, Education, Jobs, Trade, Labor, Immigration, Investment, Energy, Infrastructure, Homeownership, Financial Sectors, the Deficit, Seniors, Washington, International Relations, the Military and other topics.

Obama made many requests, among them he asked for a bill with a pathway to citizenship.

“I believe as strongly as ever that we should take on illegal immigration.  That’s why my administration has put more boots on the border than ever before.  That’s why there are fewer illegal crossings than when I took office.  The opponents of action are out of excuses.  We should be working on comprehensive immigration reform right now,” firmly stated President Obama

“But if election-year politics keeps Congress from acting on a comprehensive plan, let’s at least agree to stop expelling responsible young people who want to staff our labs, start new businesses, and defend this country.  Send me a law that gives them the chance to earn their citizenship.  I will sign it right away.” The President made it clear.

Obama was referring to the DREAM Act, without mentioning it while Congressman David Rivera (R-Miami) proposed a new bill, HR-3823, in the last week of January to limit the DREAM Act to Military-Only, excluding students.
