"Today, President Obama reiterated his deep commitment to fixing the broken immigration system and outlined his vision for a 21st century immigration policy: 1) Responsibility by the federal government to secure our borders [...] 2) Accountability for businesses that break the law by undermining American workers and exploiting undocumented workers [...] 3) Strengthening our economic competiveness by creating a legal immigration system that reflects our values and diverse needs [...] 4) Responsibility from people who are living in the United States illegally [...] What follows is an update on the progress we have made in securing our borders, enforcing our laws, and improving our immigration system, a summary of the economic benefits of our proposed immigration reforms, and an outline of the challenges we must tackle and the solutions we must implement if we are to build a 21st century immigration system."
