Obama Advocates Bipartisan Immigration Reform in SOTU

In SOTU, Pres Obama outlined the basic principles of an immigration reform plan that he would agree to: stronger border security, pathways to citizenship, reducing bureaucracy and waiting periods, and visas for high-skilled workers and entrepreneurs.

Rubio is one of the architects of the bipartisan immigration deal and will almost certainly mention the proposal in his response.

Former Department of Defense Comptroller Dov Zakheim talks about why immigration policy matters to foreign policy in the TheĀ National InterestĀ back in November.
