OBAMA TO PUSH ON IMMIGRATION BILL 

Plans to Begin Pressing on Immigration Reform

According to the New York Times, April 9, 2009, despite the fact that the current economic crisis makes the immigration battle more difficult, a senior administration official said that President Obama plans to begin addressing immigration reform as a priority.

The President plans to frame immigration reform as “policy that controls immigration and makes it an orderly system”.

Consistent with campaign pledges made last year, the President plans to speak publicly about the issue in May, and he will convene working groups to begin discussing possible legislation for as early as this fall.
