HEADLINES: Immigration — January 21, 2015

President Obama Speech 300x300Yesterday, President Obama delivered his State of the Union address to the nation. While the first half of his address focused on what America has “bounced back from,” the second half focused on the values that America seeks to uphold. As Mr. Obama detailed, one of those values is reasoned debate that is “worthy of this body and worthy of this country.”

President Obama stated, “Yes, passions still fly, but surely we can all see something of ourselves in the striving young student.” Surely we can agree that no one benefits when deportation rips families apart, and that “it’s possible to shape a law that upholds our tradition as a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants.” Visit our blog for HEADLINES: Immigration. I’ll bring you all the most important and up-to-date news on the immigration debate.
