From the Washington Post:

"GUADALAJARA, Mexico, Aug. 10 -- President Obama, attending a North American summit with the leaders of Mexico and Canada, said Monday that his administration will pursue a comprehensive overhaul of the U.S. immigration system this year but that no action on legislation will happen before 2010.

Wrapping up the two-day meeting, Obama said that there needs to be "a pathway to citizenship" for millions of illegal immigrants in the United States, and that the system must be reworked to avoid tensions with Mexico. "

WHAT? There does not need to be a "pathway to citizenship" for the illegals in this country. There needs to be "pathway" for the illegal immigrants alright. A pathway to the border and the airports so they can be deported to the country's they came from. On the second point the "system" does not to be reworked. It's only our laws that need to be enforced by THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT President Obama! You can start by enforcing the E-Verify employment procedures that make sure that projects using Stimulus tax dollars are using only workers that are legally able to work in the U.S. Something that the Obama administration has delayed FOUR TIMES!

"Without it, he said, Mexicans will keep crossing the border in dangerous ways and employers will continue exploiting workers. "We can create a system in which you have . . . an orderly process for people to come in, but we're also giving an opportunity for those who are already in the United States to be able to achieve a pathway to citizenship so that they don't have to live in the shadows,"

Rewarding those already here illegally with a path to citizenship. Oh yeah, that's a great policy. That's what the did with 1986 Immigration Reform Act. That really solved the illegal immigration problem. Obama does not seem to be able to grasp that it was a failed policy. As far the illegals living in the shadows. President Obama does this look like the illegal immigrants are living in the shadows?
