Immigration Reform Push

A push in Washington to overhaul America’s immigration system is getting underway in Washington.

FOX News Radio’s Lilian Woo reports:

Audio clip:

The President in his second inaugural speech vowing to:

President Obama: “…find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see America as a land of opportunity.”

Now, the White House and a bi-partisan group of Senators are launching separate efforts next week to jump start talks on immigration reform. It’s a focus of the President’s trip to Las Vegas Tuesday, while a Senate working group reportedly aims to outline its proposals at about that same time. One thorny issue; a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants already in the country. The White House and Senate Democrats would like to address it through a broad package of legislation, while some Republicans prefer several separate bills.
