Obama Plans Big Immigration Push

President Obama "plans to push Congress to move quickly in the coming months on an ambitious overhaul of the immigration system that would include a path to citizenship for most of the 11 million illegal immigrants in the country," the New York Times reports.

Democrats will propose the changes in one comprehensive bill, "resisting efforts by some Republicans to break the overhaul into smaller pieces -- separately addressing young illegal immigrants, migrant farmworkers or highly skilled foreigners -- which might be easier for reluctant members of their party to accept... The president and Democrats will also oppose measures that do not allow immigrants who gain legal status to become American citizens one day."
