According to recent news from Associate Press, CNN, New York Times and the White House, the topic of immigration reform is in the spot light again.

With less than two years left in the office, President Obama plans to leave another legacy—long awaited immigration reform. As promised in fall, President does return his focus to this matter now, after Americans have given Congressional control to Republicans. It will be very interesting to follow Interactions between the President and the Congressional Republicans—because Republicans can no longer blame Democrats for acting out of partisan bias. Reactions from Republicans has varied, from appeals of pragmatism (executive actions are only second best and temporary) to asking for more time. Democrats, on the contrary, mostly wanted the President to make a lasting difference. Some even worry that a shutdown is imminent—after all, government fund, according to all news sources will run out in December and recent shutdowns still remain fresh in many American’s memories.

The President had posted his appeals on the White House website. Overall, the immigration reform aims to realize the following four principles:

  1. Continuing to strengthen border security, and
  2. Streamlining legal immigration, and
  3. Pathway to earn citizenship, especially for the undocumented, and
  4. Cracking down employers who hire illegal immigrants.

The President’s blueprint for immigration reform is in the report titled “BUILDING A 21ST CENTURY IMMIGRATION SYSTEM” on the White House website.

The President had not made known his further intents. Should this immigration reform pass, immigrants, immigration lawyers and millions of Americans would be able to reap benefits of better human resource management of the United States. After all, both parties may be equally eager to leave a legacy favorable for their position in 2016 Presidential election. Immigration reform, delayed for more than a decade, may be the arena for legacy-building.
