The day after the senators released their framework, President Obama spoke on immigration at Del Sol High School in Las Vegas, Nevada. "I’m here because most Americans agree that it’s time to fix a system that’s been broken for way too long." President Obama said. "I’m here because business leaders, faith leaders, labor leaders, law enforcement, and leaders from both parties are coming together to say now is the time to find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see America as the land of opportunity.
On January 28, 2013, senators from both parties released their framework for what they would like to see in an immigration reform bill. Senators Schumer (D-NY), McCain (R-AZ), Durbin (D-IL), Graham (R-SC), Menendez (D-NJ), Rubio (R-NY), Bennet (D-CO), and Flake (R-AZ) announced that they understand that the current U.S. immigration system is broken and shared four basic pillars that guide the legislation they are now drafting.
