Leadership on Immigration Advances U.S. National Security

Leadership on Immigration Advances U.S. National Security Last night, President Obama announced an initiative to assert executive leadership on immigration reform in the face of long-stalled action by Congress. His plan would build on progress in securing the border, help highly skilled workers make greater contributions to the economy, and start a program that would allow millions of undocumented immigrants to temporarily remain in the United States if they meet certain conditions like paying taxes and passing a criminal background check.
