US immigration reform by first half of 2013 likely—Obama
United States, 1st February: US immigration overhaul will be done in the initial half of the current year.
This has been hinted by US President Barack Obama.
Comprehensive immigration overhaul by mid-2013—The US immigration overhaul might be achieved within a span of six months, maintained Obama during a latest interview.
That’s not all. The good news is that he assured putting everything to secure a deal even earlier. It is a guarantee that everything will be done to make the US immigration overhaul a possibility, he affirmed during the interview with a Spanish-language network Wednesday.
The US immigration overhaul could become a reality in the coming six months period, informed the US President Barack Obama in a latest interview.
And he did not hesitate to mention that the hurdles to the US immigration overhaul are not technical by any means. Rather, such obstacles are political, he maintained. He cited positive by saying that if, for any reasons, the immigration reform gets delayed, it will certainly be done by the year end.
Faster pathway for US citizenship to undocumented immigrants—Obama also revealed his principles concerning the US immigration this Tuesday asserting for a quicker route for US Citizenship to undocumented immigrants.
This means that as per Obama’s plans, undocumented immigrants will be allowed to move towards a path to US citizenship provided they fulfill certain conditions to move behind the foreigners wanting to immigrate to the US lawfully.
• Learning English;
• Undergo criminal background checks;
• Pay penalties;
• Undergo national security checks;
This simply means that Obama wants to push ahead a faster route to US citizenship for undocumented aliens rather than giving emphasis to border security.
The US Senators, on the other hand, argue priority to border security.
Criticism to Obama’s immigration plan—The Republicans say the proposal by Obama to offer a path to US citizenship for immigrants(undocumented aliens) rather than putting border security ahead is not good. They maintain that the move will be a leniency towards undocumented immigrants.
Obama’s proposal includes providing a route to US Green Card status leading to US citizenship for nearly 11 million undocumented immigrants. And this will help enable immigrants to attend schools and receive medical care in the US without any risk of getting deported.
