Last week, President Obama went out on a political limb with his executive order allowing an estimated 5 million undocumented immigrants to remain in the United States.
On the heels of an electoral drubbing, the President and Republican leaders of the new Congress remain at odds over immigration. The Republican meme of ‘securing the border’ is beginning to skip like a scratched record.
In the coming weeks and months, Congress will continue its debate in an effort to find a way forward to reform America’s broken immigration system. Much of this debate will center on border security, employment, and strengthening the process for individuals to earn U.S. citizenship.
