Statement by the President on Commonsense Immigration Reform

This afternoon, Senators Schumer and McCain briefed me on the bipartisan immigration reform bill that they have drafted with their colleagues in the Senate. This bill is clearly a compromise, and no one will get everything they wanted, including me. But it is largely consistent with the principles that I have repeatedly laid out for comprehensive reform. This bill would continue to strengthen security at our borders and hold employers more accountable if they knowingly hire undocumented workers.

During this time of anticipated comprehensive immigration reform, a bipartisan group of Senators known as the Senate “Gang of Eight” is reportedly nearing completion on a proposal for comprehensive immigration reform in 2013. A bipartisan group from the House of Republicans (“House”) is also working on legislation, and the President is preparing his own plan in case congressional talks fail.
