President Obama on Immigration Reform

President Obama’s recent speech on immigration reform called for bipartisan cooperation in overhauling the current immigration system.  He re-stated the need for comprehensive reform and outlined a plan including: 

  • Stronger border security,
  • Stronger interior enforcement,
  • Clearing the backlog of those awaiting approval of their visa applications, and
  • Earned path to legalization.  

Although the demand for immigration reform is high, the earliest we expect to see a comprehensive plan introduced in Congress is 2011.  Check back often as we’ll keep you updated on any new developments.
