President Obama outlined his proposals for comprehensive immigration reform.

He stressed the need for strengthening border security and cracking down on businesses that knowingly hire undocumented workers

The president then tackled the issue of illegal immigrants currently living in the U.S., saying, “We have to deal with the 11 million individuals who are here illegally. Now we all agree that these men and women should have to earn their way to citizenship, but for comprehensive immigration reform to work, it must be clear from the outset that there is a pathway to citizenship.”
