According to The New York Times, Obama plans to begin addressing the immigration issue this year.
Immigrants who are long-time residents but lack legal status “have to have some mechanism over time to get out of the shadows.”
Funny. It was just a few days ago, after the North Korean missile launch, that Obama said, "Rules must be binding; violations must be punished; words must mean something."
Perhaps it's a little premature to criticize Obama before we see specifics about his plans. But I'm guessing that the immigration rules we already have in place are not going to be binding, and that current immigration violations are not going to be punished.
