Obama Has Own Plan for Immigration Reform if Congress Doesn’t Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Barack Obama told a group of Senate Democrats Wednesday that Congress must move forward with comprehensive immigration reform, or else he will propose his own legislation on the hot-button topic.

Obama met with Sens. Dick Durbin, Chuck Schumer, Robert Menendez and Michael Bennet, the four Democrats in the bipartisan group of eight senators who introduced a framework for immigration reform last month. A bipartisan group of House members is also working in secret to craft immigration reform measures.

In a description of Wednesday’s meeting, the White House said Obama “reiterated the key principles he believes must be a part of any bipartisan, commonsense effort, including continuing to strengthen border security, creating an earned path to citizenship, holding employers accountable and streamlining legal immigration.”

Those measures are included in the bipartisan framework that was unveiled last month, though that proposal (which has yet to be drafted into formal legislation) would require bolstering border security as a prerequisite to a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants already in the United States.

The White House has argued that the U.S. border is currently the most secure it’s ever been. Obama made the case Wednesday in his meeting with the lawmakers that “continuing to strengthen our borders and creating a path to earned citizenship that ensures everyone plays by the same set of rules are shared goals and should not be seen as mutually exclusive.”

And the president warned that he “stands ready to introduce his own legislation if Congress fails to act” on a comprehensive immigration reform plan.

In January – at the same time the bipartisan group of senators was outlining its immigration framework – Democratic sources told CNN that the White House had been advising senators and advocates that they were writing their own immigration bill in formal legislative language. The White House rarely writes its own legislation.

By presenting his own legislation, Obama could avoid GOP criticism that he’s disconnected from the process. Even if Obama’s bill failed to win congressional approval, the president would still be able to point to his legislation as evidence of engagement.

Democrats urged the president not to release his own bill in January, fearing such a move would stymie the delicate negotiations taking place among lawmakers in both parties. In terms of substance, sources familiar with both proposals said the border security trigger included in the bipartisan Senate framework was not a part of the president’s plan.

On Wednesday, an aide to one of the Democratic senators said the lawmakers told the president “they remain confident that a bipartisan bill could be agreed to in the coming weeks.”

“The Senators said the bipartisan negotiations were progressing well and that both sides were making progress and working together in good faith,” the aide said.

In his State of the Union address Tuesday, Obama called on Congress to send him a comprehensive immigration reform package, saying both sides agree on what measures need to be included to make the system work better.

“We know what needs to be done,” Obama said. “As we speak, bipartisan groups in both chambers are working diligently to draft a bill, and I applaud their efforts. Now let’s get this done. Send me a comprehensive immigration reform bill in the next few months, and I will sign it right away.”

    NOBODY want these mexicans in america!……..they are mexicans that should be n their own country called mexico!……..if they are such hard workers,then why don't they work hard rebuilding mexico?…….these humans are NOT american,nor will they ever be!……..they are nothing but mexicans illegally running from their country to a country that DOES NOT WANT THEM HERE!……..we don't need anymore criminals in this country……we do not need some other country's common criminals in our country!…..wonder why the mexicans don't go to another country besides america?……..is it because no other country wants them there?

      • usaisgreat

        Maybe if the mexicans demanded what they demand here so much in mexoco, they would not need to be the whiners they are here, there is no constitutional right to come to the USA for mexican citizens that run from their country like chickens and demand services here, NOT all of these illegal aliens are working on the farm or are nannies pr gardeners, they take jobs which US and legal residents want for less. they get into our schools and fly the mexican flag, which I will burn everytime it is raised

    • usaisgreat

      your right,the mexxican is so fast to protest here about tehir rights, but somehow they canot do the same in mexico, just look at the comments to tone, they feel its a europeon issue, when the azxtecs were the worst supporessors of human rights there was besides the nazis, they ate their victims, used the blood to paint the art work, there suppression of human rights is nothing to be celebrated as tone does

    • George

      Mark read the history of the USA and find out who the immigrant really, we came here to work, you guys came here to kill and take our land

  • tone

    mark go back to europe!! you are not even with roots in america ,,,,,what are you defending…you are the criminals that cane from europe at least most of us have roots longer than 200 years ….learn and stop trying to expels americans from america…

    • criminalinvaders

      Illegal aliens aren't Americans. They are parasites and common criminals, one and all. If you want a better life then go build a better Mexico. Good effin' riddance. Take your numerous future gang-banger anchor larvae with you.

    • usaisgreat

      Hey tone
      Mexico has one of the worst educational systems in the world, it will take according to their own inestigation 327 years to catch up with the USA and other countries, their government officials, steal, kill opponnets such as carlos salinas did and now with the crook pena nieto its the same, they help drugs come in and it made people here stupid,but it backfired on them when drugs started to become distributed to its citizens also, No we will not stand for this invasion and we will fight back, the war has been declarded and anybody showing the aztlan motto is subject to being thrown a cream pie in their face

    • Bobby

      Europeans , built the whole U.S., Amigo. Don't ever forget it. In Mexico, you couldn't even afford a burro, that is what Juarez and your heros did to Mexico. Maximillian, the best leader you Mexicans ever had, you killed. Enough said!!

    • Bobby

      No doubt amigo tone, is one of those illegal aliens that marched in the U.S."s beautiful cities, that Americans built, telling them to go back to Europe. Come on, Amigo, go back to Mexico and improve it. Do something for Mexico for a change.

      President echeverria committed genocide on October 2 1968 on his own people, we do not know of a US president opening fire on his own citizens killing 3000 as echeverria did, since echeverria a Mexican is also the brother in law of fidel castro, of cuba,but is a venzuelan by birth, you need to get educated as how abusive latino leaders are, which included che guevera de la serna, who loved the smell of killing his own latino race that wasn’t a communist, his star in the head was actually where he gotthe bullet he desevered. No the problem is latinos like to play their own race to be stupid and are kept that way to believe the gringo is at fault, yet the mexican government condoned drug smuggling to dope the people here, and now it backfired, no tone go back to your pueblito and smoke the horse dung your on or the mushrooms your famliy ingests for the vajaie

      • tone

        your race has the predisposition to abuse and to take from others ,look at africa ….look how blacks were treated by your race,look all invationsare from people like you But believe this time ur the looser ,,you never answered about madofff that american scum back corrupt and a thief Im going to repeit it your race has the predisposition to take from others!!
        im not of eur0epan decent to have the predisposition to smoke drugs like you do here!!!

      • immigrant

        Gringo you say? ahahah I dont even use that word in public and here you are postinng it… and you wanted to appear as an educated person and failed.

    • IllinoisMinuteman

      Hey tone, you lost the southwest through wars and purchases. The USofA was founded 230 plus years ago, meaning the new Americans have a lineage longer than yours. It was the Europeans that made this country great. Prior to obama, of course. Your family should be happy working for someone with the where- with- all to create a company that creats a product people need, and sells well. I know for sure you cannot do this due to you're lack of intelligence as seen by your spelling, and grammer.
      It is obvious that you are racist against White people, as is obama ad holder, and really have no place, nor need here in the USofA. I'd suggest you leave right away. Boycott the horrible treatment you have been subjected to, and tell all your friends to go with you. Make a statement, go proudly, go now! And stay out! Bitch!

      • IllinoisMinuteman

        I missed an "e" in creates. But you would have missed it anyway.
        Lower case letters used intentionally for "obama and holder" because I have no use for racists.

    • usaisgreat

      Lincoln freed the slaves from a democractic party, madoff is jewish, carlos salinas kept the mexican people stupid while he stole the wealth of the country and went to ireland, his buddy luis echeverria was indicted for genocide, but the judges refused the cases due to them being members of the PRI, the mexican policitician is a thief and killer, and takes the money wealth and buys homes in bevery hills, la jolla, coronado and florida, mexicans are racists against their own people, ,_the aztecs ate their victims, used the blood to paint the art, they are not a good example to follow unless you feel subrogation slavery is good, and we spit on the mexican flags and symbols of the aztec nazis they hd no redeeming qualities,

  • criminalinvaders

    The absolutely, positively, honest to God final amnesty EVER was passed in 1986 and signed into law by Ronald Reagan (something he wrote he later regretted). Boy, did the American people get screwed but good with that one. What we've had is one corrupt and treasonous regime after another who have failed to give us what Reagan promised; a secure border and strict enforcement in the workplace and elsewhere. The worst regime so far is that of tin pot dictator Comrade ObaMao. This cr*p has got to stop. Meanwhile these lousy invaders need to be arrested when encountered and deported promptly. Any invader who wants legal residency needs to go to the back of the line. The back of the line starts in their home countries, not here. I say build a wall and deport 'em all.

    Comrade O should have been impeached and tried for high treason long ago.

  • USAGuest

    I truly admire and appreciate the hardworking Mexicans and South Americans..AND ALL IMMIGRANTS that come here..those that CAME HERE LEGALLY VIA PROPER WAY…

    NOT the ILLEGALS THAT CUT IN LINE BREAKING LAWS like so many that come just for the free welfare, medical, food, housing assistance that our American Citizen Veterans have to fight and many times getting denied any help whatsoever for EVEN AFTER FIGHTING IN WARS AND SERVING THIS COUNTRY!

    Sure this is a country built on immigration but by those who came here LEGALLY!! Like my relatives who had to WAIT IN LINE LEGALLY AT ELLIS ISLAND and be properly vetted prior to be given admittance to this country. They were treated like parasites and had to be tested for all kinds of parasites, bugs, infections and diseases before they were allowed to come into America.

    Now it seems anyone can just come in so long as they are willing to take any job at SLAVE WAGES!!!

    Although, the real problem is there are churches that find pregnant women and sneak them into this country for their church membership such as the Catholic churches. Think about it people, the more members the more money in penitence/donations/more money to the church coffers…;the more members the more rich and the more powerful the church/religion is…that is what this illegal immigration is really about.

    I have read many reports over the years just do your own research and you can read and learn for yourself.

    Catholic Church & Charities Illegally 'Aid and Abet' Aliens http://www.stopthenorthamericanunion.com/Catholic

    And there are plenty of websites that help in aiding and abetting illegals….

    • Bobby

      So what. I admire my car mechanic. He's not Mexican or South American, but works like a donkey to get peoples cars going. I admire the next door neighbor of mine, an elderly European-American woman, retired, who worked her butt off in a meat packing plant in Los Angeles for years, and then was denied a wage raise when enough illegal alien came to L.A. Millions upon millions of Americans work hard now, and their ancestors worked hard building this nation. I really don't care how "hard" Mexicans, or South Americans work. What's it got to do with the price of tea in China?

  • Oldschool blogger

    How about this. We Americans will allow the WHOLE WORLD to move here and all the Americans get the rest of the world's land. How's that for fair trade.

    Immigration from Obama has these words on it "BAD TIMING" and "WE DON'T NEED IT." What this country does need is a better economy and more jobs.Is that what is on Obama's mind??NO! Does he realize that he is going to be adding more people to the welfare rolls thus spending even more money from the budget that is not there. If you are a white American out of a job and apply for any of the Social Services well you might as well throw any applications in the garbage.You wont get it!! If you are Hispanic it will be handed to you on a silver platter with a gold spoon.
    Why would Obama want to screw this country and its people over?? It may be in his Grand Scheme to destroy this country from within or eventually lead to an internal conflict between the countries Citizens!!!!

    people talk like if they own this country, like if they purchased it personally, like if their parents or grandparents did not some day travel thousands of miles to search for a better life, like if they fell out of heaven directly in this great land, like if they rode a horse in such races where land was been givn for free, like if they speak navajo or another indian language, like if they own this beautiful country but your words are nothing else but graffiti alike what gangs mark the walls with since you are arguing or disputing a territory that does not ONLY belong to you…… la tierra es de quien la trabaja, la land belongs to who ever works it my fellow Americans.

    • guest

      Are you forgetting that we have laws now against people breaking in? If you come from south of the border, however, you probably are unaware of laws.We are full, we are broke and we do not need the billions of dollars of expense that it cost taxpayers for the upkeep of illegals. What happens when we run out of clean water and space enough for the millions more that will pour in before we get someone in office who cares more for his own people than he does for those who laugh at our laws? They will not suddenly become law-abiding people, not after breaking in, giving fake names, false document and stolen IDs. So what we'll have is a nation of criminals that were welcomed by our own government.

      • immigrant

        We are full, we are broke??? are you talking about you personally? don't blame other people for your lack of effort or motivation.

        we do not need the billions of dollars of expense that it cost taxpayers for the upkeep of illegals??? hey illegals are not eligible for any food stamps, welfare, or any other public assistance… so it must be you or your legal relatives taking advantage.

        and yes… our government… OURS not YOURS… This is the land of the FREE!!!

    • USAmerican100

      You are not an immigrant you are a foreign invader. When my ancestors immigrated here their life initially became WORSE, and harder. They came only for the freedom, and with that they were able to create a better life for themselves,, by themselves, nobody handed it to them like you foreign invaders demand today.

      • tone

        i can trace my roots longer than when your ancestor came…..to invade an already inhabited land!!
        may be you will have an argument in 500 years , the laws are here to receive more immigration ,the only way is changing them,when that happens this country will go downhill ,!!
        the roman lasted 1000 years…communism about 100 or less … so do the math .. reinvent is the secret…or die…is the end

        • USAmerican100

          Europeans were on this continent first, the Solutreans 20,000 years ago. When Europeans came again in 1607 they were not invaders, they formed alliances and trade agreements with the American Indians, and paid for use of the land. Also the USA was most prosperous when immigration was only 300,000 a year.

          • tone

            the first one is a mith!!!
            they came 1492 …….yes invaders!!
            good point about immigration! !lets do the math!!!
            300 k a year x 27 years (since last amnesty bY reagan) = 8.5 million aprox
            now there are supposed to be 11 millions ,so they allowed a 110k a year more ..pretty close.
            uhh
            its just bussiness,, thats all … money ,money..

        • Bobby

          O.K. But youre "people" never did a thing to advance this nation. You live in one of the most modern nations in the world, because European-Americans built it that way. Agreed?

          • immigrant

            My "people"? "European-Americans"? what are you talking about sir? should we surrender this land to France, Spain, and England again? and if so should we give back the land purchased from Mexico as well? no no and no… this is America and it belongs to all the hard working "American PEOPLE" that is my people, we are who we are and you can't change the past nor the future. This is the land of the FREE and don't you forget it.

        You are not an immigrant you are a foreign invader??? yes you could be right but I am now a US Citizen and I paid the price… I worked hard and pay taxes, I do not ask the government for any public assistance, I fulfill my jury duty obligations and I pledge allegiance to the flag.. I am this country, I am USA.

        Also I give credit to your ancestors for working hard and enduring so much pain and effort… you on the other hand, just like many other people, got this for free and can't even imagine how fortunate you are. Enjoy it and stop talking nonsense.

          By saying everyone in the world had a right to live here and helping them do that you are working to destabilize and fragment the USA. You are committing sedition and that automatically revokes your US citizenship. Just like the "US citizens" who joined Al Quaida, by doing so they lost their citizenship rights for being enemy combatants.

          So because me and my ancestors worked harder and smarter than you and your ancestors, you think we owe you something? Go to Hell.

          • immigrant

            hahah look who is talking about hell now? before you know it you will be quoting Hitler and a white supremacist america. And do n't get confused and worried, there are 6 billion people in the world but only 11 million undocumented immigrants so saying everyone in the world is much an exaggeration… Don't lose your panties over it, live your life, work hard, play hard, and enjoy it.

      How deluded you are. Who in the hell do you imagine built the United States of America? Those European-AMericans didn't jst come here and find a modern country, all nice and built up with ports, roads, bridges, skyscrapers, auto factories, steel mills, coal plants, hundreds of thousands of farms producing wheat, rye, corn, etcetc. They did all of this with their blood sweat and tears. Many of us are the descendents of those people Then we fought in wars and got klled,etc. What the hell are you taliking about? You would probably say Mexico belongs to Mexicans. Right?

      • immigrant

        Bobby… immigrants like me built this country… immigrants from all over the place. How about the chinese? they built all the rail roads but did not get citizenship out of it and they are not crying like you are. Now you say We We WE like if you personally did anything my friend, can you say anything you have done for this great country? and yes Mexico belongs to Mexicans, America belongs to Americans and anybody that is working hard and honestly is a hard working American. Just look around and you will find the truth dont hide behind your racist ideas, free your self.

    • mobilebay

      Immigrant, I'm surprised that if you are legal, you don't mind the chance of losing your job to the invading hoards or of the many ills that illegal immigration brings to this country.. Of course, if you're illegal, it would explain your rants.

        mobilebay.. the truth is that I am not afraid of losing anything to anybody, I am competitive, work hard, pay my taxes and I welcome anyone that walks forward stating they could do a better job than me.

    The President and his "gang of eight" can't wait to welcome the lawbreakers and bestow our most precious possession on them – citizenship. It means nothing to our government anymore, nor will it mean anything to those who laugh at our laws. The Hispanic hysteria is rife in the land.

      I always knew Durbin was a traitor. He dance around the immigration issue for years, but, he finally came out of the closet. Replace the WHOLE SENATE CONGRESS AND WHITE HOUSE, because they do not represent America's citizens.

  • usaisgreat

    The president has no legal authority to allow citizens of another country to become usa residents against the law, there is no national need to ignore our soverignty for the benefits of another countries citizens. This act will cause a civil war. These illegal aliens need to follow the laws like the rest of legal residents which immigrated legally. Mexico has no immediate invasion threat that harms its citizens .

    • onDefence

      America is no longer under the control of the United Kingdom because Americans did not like the laws at the time. Popular opinion now (not on this blog but in the US in general) is that we need to change the laws to accommodate the undocumented. It s funny when you think about it that the main argument hinges around laws that cannot or should not be changed.

  • Bobby

    Ooohhhhh, excuse meeeeeee…….Obama, rather Prince Obama, has his own amnesty plan, whether Americans like it or not!! I sometimes think that the best mantra for most Americans is, "STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES". Take this advice from elitist Hollywood, it concerns you Mr. and Mrs. American citizen.

  • guest

    What about Obama showing some concern for America's indigenous people? There are less than 3 million total combine American Indian and Inuit Natives left in the United States. They are confined on reservations. Denied rights that Obama grants to illegal immigrants. If this plan was truly about equality, human and civil rights we wouldn't have thousands of "already" US Citizens going hungry and homeless.

    PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION AGAINST AN AMNESTY FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS!

    WHY SIGNING THIS PETITION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN OTHERS!

    While every petition, fax, email and phone call against the amnesty is important, signing this petition is by far the most important single thing one of your friends or relatives can do.

    The reason is that signing this petition puts a person into an email system at NumbersUSA that will alert them every time one of their elected officials needs to hear something specific about immigration. Nobody else but NumbersUSA runs a customized grassroots mobilization system like this that constantly gathers information on Capitol Hill about your Members of Congress and then lets you know what they are doing, saying and thinking about immigration policy.

    The New York Times and other mass media have repeatedly stated that NumbersUSA's mobilization network led the efforts that defeated the close-call amnesty efforts of 2007 and 2010. But the forces for open borders are far more powerful today. It will take hundreds of thousands of additional people on the email list to push back the amnesty this time. Please help us by referring the petition widely.

    Well, when he comes up with a bill today, he only cares about letting illegal immigrants in. He seems forget about the legal Masters and Ph.Ds who come to US legally. Simply because, these people have very few votes….

    ROFL………………..
    what a joke

    Illegal immigration is racist, it benefits 30 Latinos for every Asian, African, or European who benefits. Obama and the Democratic Party support this extreme racism.

    REMEMBER THIS………if legalization is given to 12 MILLION illegal aliens they will be eligible to bring their relatives into the U.S. 12 MILLION will turn into 50 MILLION or more!!!

    Complaining here does no good. DO SOMETHING.
