    Middle class suffers when wages are driven lower by illegal immigrant labor. Not fair to complying employers who have to compete with violators.
    Not fair that people going about it legally wait abroad while others live illegally in the US.
    Talking about how Silicon Valley was built by immigrants. Makes no sense to educate students and then drive them away.
    Now he's talking about border security.
    Border security first crowd has been answered. More border patrol officers than ever - 20,000 agents, more than two times as 2004.
    Border fence largely done (getting some boos here).
    Working with Mexican government on smuggling issues.
    They have gone above and beyond what the Republican enforcement pushers have demanded. But they're just moving the goal posts. They keep inventing new requirements. Will soon demand a moat with alligators.
    Border towns are now amongst the safest in the country, despite what the anti-immigrants say.

    Those of you who regularly read this blog know that I'm highly skeptical regarding current efforts by the White House to promote immigration reform. The White House's failure to engage on this issue for the first two years - years when Democrats actually had a shot at passing immigration legislation - can't be ignored. Most pundits think that the President is trying to score points with a very disillusioned Latino community. Given the President's recent remarks dismissing suggestions that he exercise the authority granted him by Congress to make administrative fixes to the system as well as the massive increase in deportations over the last two years (much of which focuses on non-criminals, despite the President suggesting otherwise), is the skepticism really hard to understand?
    Nevertheless, if the President is truly serious, perhaps we will learn something from his remarks today. If he is interested in appearing to be doing anything other than playing politics, we will see what actions follow his words. 
    I'll be following what he says and reporting here.
    [Additional comment: The White House is apparently planning an enormous number of "conversations" with various groups that are largely on the side of immigration reform. While most will welcome the opportunity, there is a certain amount of fatigue in the pro-immigration community and a growing cynicism regarding the White House's true interest in solving problems versus trying to do just enough to stave off a 2012 defeat. I'll be more impressed when I see the President regularly meeting with those who are not already committed to reform.]

    On Tuesday President Obama is expected to make a major immigration speech at the US-Mexican border town of El Paso, Texas. That the speech is taking place in El Paso speaks volumes about the US' immigration policy; the debate on the undocumented overwhelms any other immigration issues that this country has.
    The need for healthcare workers in this country is about to explode. Both private and public economic forecasters predict that the jobs that grew in the 2000-10 decade will be the jobs where growth is seen in the 2011-20 decade. The Department of Labor says that these are largely healthcare jobs. It will be telling if the President tries to position legitimate immigration alongside his enforcement aims.
