Presidents Obama And Calderon Talk Immigration Reform

Posted by | May 19, 2010 20:51 | Filed under: Top Stories

Mexican President Felipe Calderon visited President Obama at “Casa Blanca” and they discussed the need for immigration reform.

“In the United States of America, no law-abiding person — be they an American citizen, a legal immigrant, or a visitor or tourist from Mexico — should ever be subject to suspicion simply because of what they look like,” Obama told reporters with Calderon at his side.

Calderon noted that many immigrants contribute to society, but “live in the shadows.”

The United States needs a new law that secures the border, targets businesses that hire illegal workers and punishes illegals, but gives them a path to citizenship, Obama said. He asked for support from opposition Republicans to pass one.

Obama and Calderon also agreed on the need to secure the border and to fight the drug war.
