Obama Voices Interest In Comprehensive Immigration Reform
In a recent interview on the Univision Spanish-language radio show, Piolin por la Manana (Piolin in the Morning), President Obama informed host Eddie “Piolin” Sotelo that he soon intends to address the topic of comprehensive immigration reform.
“It’s going to take some time to move that forward, but I’m very committed to making it happen,” said Obama. In addition, Obama commented to Sotelo that his administration intends to start the process of drawing up new legislation for comprehensive immigration reform over the next several months.
Sotelo, a well-known radio host in the Latino community was a strong supporter of the last attempt at comprehensive immigration reform, the Kennedy-McCain Bill of 2007.
