“Time to fix it” – President Obama urges Congress on Immigration Reform

During a naturalization ceremony at the White House on March 25, 2013, President Obama demanded to put an end to the long-impending debate over a comprehensive immigration reform. He mentioned it is ‘time to fix it’ and urged the group of bipartisan to finish with the proposal that is very likely to be introduced for debate next month.

President Obama, who already mentioned in January that in case of delay from the lawmakers he would go ahead with his own plan, took another stance during the ceremony by saying that he is keen on signing the bill as soon as they return from Easter holiday. He said that mending the broken immigration system is the only way to ensure that the best and the brightest of the world feel welcomed in the country for better jobs.

The proposal will include a path to citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants, allowing skilled workers into the country and is still under work, strengthening the border security and making the employers accountable for any illegal employees.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, however opined that the President is only eager to grant legal status to the undocumented residents to strengthen his stance in 2014 and 2016.
