Blk people get enough negitve press. Let's try something positive. Yesterday, in Nevada, President Obama laid out his plan for comprehensive immigration reform, and right now, he needs to know who's ready to help get this done. Ask pretty much anyone, and they'll agree: Our nation's immigration system is broken. But working together, we can fix it. To that end, the President has proposed the following steps: - Continue to strengthen and secure our borders; - Crack down on companies that hire undocumented workers; - Establish a legal path to earned citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants who are already here -- including children who were brought here through no fault of their own; - And streamline legal immigration for those who are already playing by the rules. Solving this problem is not only essential to a strong economy and a thriving middle class, it's also the right thing to do. The time to act is now. The vast majority of Americans back a plan for comprehensive immigration reform. And just this week, a bipartisan group of senators offered their own plan for reform, which is consistent with the plan the President campaigned on -- an encouraging sign for working together in the months ahead. As Congress begins to get to work on this issue, there are sure to be disagreements and bumps in the road. It won't be easy, and our success is in no way guaranteed. But if we stick together, and keep at it, we can accomplish something truly historic.

What's so positive about it? Unless the borders are truly secured and laws enforced it will just encourage more illegals to come and ultimately edge out blacks for the few measly jobs there are.
