Yesterday the United States president, Barack Obama, attended the nationalization of 28 immigrants in the White House during a ceremony that reiterated the need for an immigration reform that allows the country to continue “welcoming” foreign citizens.
Obama said he expects the debate would begin the draft the new reform next month and then present a bill to be signed as soon as possible, this will allow “a responsible path to citizenship,” he said.
The United States president acknowledged and thanked the 12 active or retired military present yesterday who became U.S. citizens. “What makes someone American is not the blood, is not the coincidence of a birth, is the loyalty to our founding principles,” said Obama.
During the ceremony, United States President seized the moment to ask for a reform that solves a “broken immigration system.” He was optimistic about the fact that a group of Senate Republicans and Democrats have been able to agree together to perform a set of common principles for reform it with “integrity and responsibility.”
