The Devil is always in the details. These are all good things in a broad context but what will be the details? nationwide verification of legal status for all newly hired workers; Something we need. Illegal immigrants come here for jobs mostly but should not be able to get them. No jobs, and their is no incentive for most of them to come here illegally add visas to relieve backlogs and allow highly skilled immigrants to stay; Not only do highly skilled immigrants add to the Country but the paperwork backlog of Immigration is atrocious create some form of guest-worker program to bring in low-wage immigrants in the future; Farmers and some seasonal employers rely on this. If done legally it would HELP the US economy.

We have 23,000,000 U.S. American citizens, who cannot feed their American kids or give them, their rightful American Dream. That is why 50,000,000 desperately poor Americans are on foodstamps. Stop the hatred for our American countrymen. Force out all Illegals, and punish Traitors who brought them here, and support their crimes. Illegals have to go.

Thats nice,

Now let the grown ups have a serious discussion.

Do we need a nationwide ability to make sure those hired are Legally here?

Do we need highly skilled workers (Doctors, engineers, those who build and expand businesses? to stay here and come here? ) There is a backlog of visas currently for these people.

What about Americans who are married to foreigners and want to bring them over. The Visa backlog for that is very long.

Are you claiming that those on Food stamps want to become migrant workers but can't?

Well that is simply not true.

Dealing with the rest of the illegals currently here is problematic.

But it is something that needs to be done.

Also I see no mention in the above plan of increased Border security???

Border Security is also a part of the Solution.

But again it is the details that matter and I don't trust Obama on the Details

As President Obama begins his second term, it seems he intends to make good on campaign promises to reform American immigration policy. The New York Times reports today that the president and his fellow Democrats in the Senate are seeking to create a giant omnibus bill that would remake the entire system.

Mr. Obama and Senate Democrats will propose the changes in one comprehensive bill, the officials said, resisting efforts by some Republicans to break the overhaul into smaller pieces — separately addressing young illegal immigrants, migrant farmworkers or highly skilled foreigners — which might be easier...
