Immigration Reform Possible This Week

Various credible sources are citing that President Barack Obama may pass an executive order this week, bypassing Congress, to provide a pathway for residency for millions of eligible undocumented aliens in the U.S. The President has expressed his desire to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill since the beginning of his second term, but due to political failings, has been unable to. The President has remained steadfast in his stance and hopes to achieve the following: “Our immigration system should reward anyone who is willing to work hard and play by the rules. For the sake of our economy and our security, legal immigration should be simple and efficient. The President’s proposal attracts the best minds to America by providing visas to foreign entrepreneurs looking to start businesses here and helping the most promising foreign graduate students in science and math stay in this country after graduation, rather than take their skills to other countries. The President’s proposal will also reunite families in a timely and humane manner.”
