Obama says in his weekly address that the immigration reform bill would offer a path to citizenship for 11 million immigrants living in the country illegally provided they meet certain criteria, strengthen border security and generally "modernize" the nation's immigration system.
"That’s what immigration reform looks like. Smarter enforcement. A pathway to earned citizenship," Obama said. "Improvements to the legal immigration system. They’re all commonsense steps. They’ve got broad support – from Republicans and Democrats, CEOs and labor leaders, law enforcement and clergy. So there is no reason that Congress can’t work together to send a bill to my desk by the end of the summer.
