Obama Administration in Sync on Immigration Dollars and Sense
Released on Tue, May 05, 2009
The Obama Administration is clearly in sync on immigration this week, announcing initiatives that pave the way for immigration reform. In a Senate oversight hearing the Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, testified about her plans to protect our borders and enforce our immigration laws in smarter and more effective ways. Meanwhile, President Obama unveiled a $27 billion plan for border and transportation security - part of the 2010 budget he plans to present to Congress - that will enable the Secretary to do just that.
