Obama to shoot for comprehensive immigration bill

Posted By on Sun, Jan 13, 2013 at 8:12 AM

The New York Times reports today on the Obama administration's work toward comprehensive, rather than piecemeal, immigration legislation.

It would include a path to citizenship for the estimated 11 million immigrants living and working in the U.S. without authorization.

The sound you hear is Secure Arkansas leader Jeanie Burlsworth's head exploding. (Though, of late, fluordination of water and UN plots have been higher on Secure's agenda than immigration. The NY Times article doesn't indicate that Obama has yet proposed that feared superhighway from Mexico to Kansas City as the first step toward an eventual merger of the U.S. and Mexico. Too bad. If nothing else, it would bring better beer and food to these parts.
