At a news conference commemorating his 100th day in office, President Obama indicated that his administration is planning on moving “full steam ahead on all fronts” on immigration reform. Obama told Telemundo reporter, Lori Montenegro, that he hopes to convene working groups to start building a framework for how immigration legislation might be shaped. Obama once again stated the need for comprehensive immigration reform that brings undocumented workers out of the shadows. He also emphasized that Janet Napolitano, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, is working on making sure that the U.S. border is secured to show Americans that the government is competent in getting results in respect to the systems which are already in place. When asked when Obama hopes to see immigration reform legislation introduced, he replied “I’d like to see the process move this year.”
