Pres Meets With Hispanic Lawmakers

  WASHINGTON  - President Obama has met in the Oval Office with U.S. Senator Robert Menendez and U.S. Representatives Nydia Velazquez and Luis Gutierrez.   Afterward he issued this statement:

This reform must provide lasting and dedicated resources for border security, while also requiring accountability from both individuals in the U.S. illegally and unscrupulous employers who game the system for their own economic advantage.

The President expressed his support for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s efforts to move forward on the DREAM Act in the coming weeks, a bipartisan bill that the President cosponsored when he served in the Senate.  The President noted that it is time to stop punishing innocent young people for the actions of their parents, especially when those youth grew up in America and want to serve this country in the military or pursue a higher education they have earned through academic excellence. 

Senator Menendez discussed the comprehensive immigration reform bill that he plans to introduce in the coming weeks.  The President told Senator Menendez that he looks forward to reviewing the bill, noting that he strongly supported the proposal that Senate Democrats outlined earlier this year.  The President reiterated that the strength of that proposal was that it was based on the bipartisan framework developed by Senators Schumer and Graham.
