Excerpt from today's remarks by the President:
"I strongly believe that in order to protect this border, Congress has got to pass a comprehensive plan that... provides... additional money to secure the border and... recognizes that people are sneaking in here to do jobs Americans aren't doing... finally, we are going to have to treat people with dignity in this country. Ours is a nation of immigrants. And when Congress gets down to a comprehensive bill, I will just remind them, it's virtually impossible to try to find 11 million folks who've been here working hard, in some cases raising families, and kick them out. It's just not going to work."
