• "A 21st-Century Immigration System"

    Speaking in El Paso, Texas, this afternoon, President Obama set out his vision for a 21st-century immigration system, calling on all of us to work together for reform.

    So we're going to keep up the fight for the Dream Act. We're going to keep up the fight for reform. And that's where you come in. I will do my part to lead a constructive and civil debate on these issues. We've already held a series of meetings about this at the White House in recent weeks. And we've got leaders here and around the country helping to move the debate forward. But this change has to be driven by you-to help us push for comprehensive reform, and to identify what steps we can take right now-like the Dream Act and visa reform-areas where we can find common ground among Democrats and Republicans to begin fixing what's broken.
