      The White House
      Office of the Press Secretary

      For Immediate Release March 26, 2014
      Statement by the President on Immigration Reform

      Last year, Democrats and Republicans in the Senate came together to pass a commonsense bill to fix our broken immigration system – a bill that would grow our economy, shrink our deficits, and reward businesses and workers that play by the rules. But so far, Republicans in the House have refused to allow meaningful immigration reform legislation to even come up for a vote.

      That’s why, today, I applaud the efforts of Democrats in the House to give immigration reform the yes-or-no vote it deserves. Like the Senate bill, the House bill would strengthen our borders, modernize our legal immigration system, and keep more families together. It would make sure everyone plays by the same rules by providing a pathway to earned citizenship for those who are living in the shadows. And according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, it would grow our economy and reduce our deficits by $900 billion over the next 20 years.

      Immigration reform is the right thing to do for our economy, our security, and our future. A vast majority of the American people agree. The only thing standing in the way is the unwillingness of Republicans in Congress to catch up with the rest of the country. And I want to thank the leaders in Congress who ar

They think this isn’t the “right time?” It is EXACTLY the right time!! Notice that they had the “fear” that “poor people” would use this as babysitting? Is anyone else as offended by that as I am?

        I just watched brief commentary about PBO’s speech as I was turning the channel and I saw some guy on MSNBC say, “The message in that speech was not all that clear”. What speech did he watch? Comments like that reminded me why I do not watch these pundits.

        • 60 Cindy
          March 26, 2014 at 2:11 pm

          They are the quintessence of “ignorance.”

          Before the speech started, one of the worms said; the speech will not matter domestically, it will not mean anything to the people here.

          They always want to speak for the masses. They dislike the President and they want everyone to fall in behind them-period.

    Got in on the last twenty minutes…..what I heard…..What a speech! Stated so many important things so eloquently. Even dealt with the U.S. invasion of Iraq…..he doesn’t hide things. Clearly said he opposed that war, too. Good. Vlad needs to know he is NOT dealing with prior administration, and the rest of the world needed to be reminded that there is new thought in the white house. I loved when he said: “Now is not the time for bluster.” LOOOOOOVED that!!!
    If ever a person came on the world stage at the right time, for a specific purpose, that person is our president, Barack Obama. My heart just swells with pride seeming him on the world stage today. No one else in the world could have made that speech, spoke those truths with the credibility and trust he did.

      No, there is no one like him. He is head and shoulders above all others. And I agree with you about his moral clarity. It’s what drives his small-minded critics crazy.

    He went there on every spurious argument that Vlad, others in the international community and the ignorant mofos in this country have espoused. I especially like how he made it plain about our actions in Iraq (even though we should not have been there in the first place) vs. Vlad’s in Ukraine. My other favorite is how he spoke in support of LGBT and against intolerance. Listening to PBO speak with such authority and intellect, and grace is a balm to my soul. Like so many, I really suffered during the Bush years. Shrub was so embarrassing, so ignorant, so class-less (plus he looks like Elmer Fudd) and clueless. PBO makes me so proud; he has uplifted our country and inspired the world.

      THANK YOU even more for correcting Sam Stein. They heard the same thing that we heard and they never fail to twist the President’s words. He made it clear that he was against the Iraq war, and that we did not go in and hijack their resources as Putin is doing.

Who else would have been invited to give such an important speech in that location? The world knows who and what he is. Americans need to catch up…….well, over half of us know.

    hi TOD family,

    I’ve been missing I know since mid December but I caught the flue when a little piece in our heat went off.We waiting 3 days before they came to fix and I didn’t get over that until late February then 2 ago as I was starting to feel better i got a sinus infection that put me right back in bed;I wasn’t allowed to be on antibiotics for a week so I started taking them just 4 days ago and it feels great being able to breath again 😀

    my computer died on me so I had to get a new one and for the record don’t buy HP;such a hassle that I had to bring it back 😡

      President Obama Coming to Spielberg’s Shoah Foundation Gala in Los Angeles

      March 21, 2014

      This May, founder Steven Spielberg’s USC Shoah Foundation will host their 20th Anniversary Ambassadors for Humanity Gala, and they have a very special guest coming to the event.

      President Barack Obama will speak about “common values” and “shared responsibilities in building a brighter future,” according to the USC Shoah Foundation – Institute for Visual History and Education, a nonprofit established by Spielberg in 1994, a year after he completed “Schindler’s List.”

      Spielberg will present the Institute’s Ambassador for Humanity Award to President Obama, for his philanthropic work and commitment to education. Spielberg has a new book coming from HarperCollins on March 25: Testimony: The Legacy of Schindler’s List and the USC Shoah Foundation — A 20th Anniversary Commemoration, which combines, for the first time, the behind-the-scenes story of the making of “Schindler’s List” with the history of the organization inspired by the Oscar-winning film.

      The gala will go down May 7 in Los Angeles. TNT is a presenting sponsor.

    The problem with the press is that they were so dumbed down from covering Bush that they forgot how to listen. Their ears are tuned to buzz words so they can get a “reaction” and they have no intention of paying attention so they lack understanding. They are lazy. They have a predetermined narrative and script that they just plug their in catch phrases and and then run-off at the mouth assuming that what they have to say is more relevant. They are rapidly making themselves obsolete. That is why they keep propping up Putin, because they want to cling to the old norms of bullying because. It is simpler to just retread the same tired norms rather than stepping boldly into a new era of governing.

    I’m so damn proud of our president.
