Groups hoping Immigration reform on table for Obama

Posted: 01/24/13 09:27

A public interest group is hoping President Obama's second term will involve comprehensive immigration reform, like Darcy Tromanhauser with Nebraska Appleseed.Obama campaigned on immigration reform during his 2008 run but the issue then was sidelined in favor of stimulus spending and health care reform. Is Tromanhauser concerned immigration will get tabled again? During Obama's inaugural address this week, he said, "Our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see America as a land of opportunity ---until bright young students and engineers are enlisted in our workforce rather than expelled from our country.
