Obama: Immigration overhaul can boost recovery
Sunday - 7/14/2013, 9:08am EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama says overhauling the nation's immigration system can provide a big boost to the economic recovery.
In his weekly Internet and radio address, Obama cites former President George W. Bush's support for a comprehensive solution on immigration. He says if Democrats and Republicans can agree on something, it's a good place to start.
The Senate has already passed a bipartisan bill. Obama says now the House must act. He says Americans should use email and Facebook and phone calls to tell their representatives to take action.
In the Republican address, Sen. Mike Enzi of Wyoming says Americans are paying the price for Obama's health care law. He says it's time to admit the law is failing. He's urging a "permanent delay" in the law's implementation.
