President Obama kicked off his second-term push for immigration reform on Tuesday with a speech in Nevada, a battleground state whose growing Latino vote helped him win the November election. I’m here today because the time has come for commonsense comprehensive immigration reform. The time is now. We have to deal with the 11 million individuals who are here illegally. We all agree that these men and women should have to earn their way to citizenship. But for comprehensive immigration reform to work, it must be clear from the outset that there is a pathway to citizenship. Obama omitted detailed proposals from his address, instead backing the bipartisan Senate plan that includes a path to citizenship for the estimated 11 million undocumented people in the United States, but also tougher border enforcement and a system for tracking those who overstay visas. In his remarks, Obama took aim at anti-immigrant sentiment, saying foreign nationals are being maligned by people who forget their own ancestral past. It's easy sometimes for the discussion to take on a feeling of 'us' versus 'them.' And when that happens, a lot of folks forget that most of 'us' used to be 'them.' We forget that. And it’s really important for us to remember our history. Unless you’re one of the first Americans, a Native American, you came from someplace else. Somebody brought you. Despite embracing the bipartisan Senate plan, Obama vowed to send his own immigration bill to Congress if lawmakers do not take immediate action.
