  7. 7. Comprehensive immigration reform From whitehouse.gov: There are four principles to the President’s common sense proposal: •Continuing to strengthen border security. •The president would provide law enforcement the tools needed to enhance the infrastructure and technology that will strengthen the government’s ability to remove criminals from the country. •Streamlining legal migration. •The President’s proposal provides visas to foreign entrepreneurs looking to start businesses here, helps the most promising foreign graduate students in science and math stay in this country after graduation, and reunites families in a timely and humane manner. •Earned citizenship. •Pass background checks, pay taxes and a penalty, go to the back of the line, and learn English. It requires everyone to play by the same rules. •Cracking down on employers hiring undocumented workers. •Government will give businesses the tools needed to verify their employees are here legally.
