Napolitano: We Need Comprehensive Immigration Reform To Keep Country Secure, President Obama Committed to Reform

Today, during a speech at the Center for American Progress, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano reiterated the administration’s commitment to achieving comprehensive immigration reform. A former border state governor who has a deep understanding of the complexity of immigration issues, Napolitano has been designated by the President as the administration’s point person on immigration reform.

Napolitano made the case that law enforcement, and specifically the Department of Homeland Security can not keep the country safe or do their jobs effectively without comprehensive immigration reform. “Law enforcement and government at every level are asking for reform. And at the Department of Homeland Security, we need reform to do our job of enforcing the law and keeping our country secure,” said Napolitano.

Secretary Napolitano indicated that she expects to see legislation in early 2010, and that the administration was committed to solving the problem.
