Obama on Immigration

Today the President made a case for revamping the approach to immigration in this country. By all accounts, it may be too late in the political season to matter. However, on this issue, he is absolutely right. The creative future of this country depends on a continual freshening of the gene pool through immigration. Job creation rests on those who are hungry, entreprenuerial, and unafraid to take risks by founding new companies and growing existing ones. The history of this country is replete with immigrants that have contributed their talents, effort, and resources to build the economic powerhouse that is the USA. Unfortunately, the short sightedness of party leaders on both sides will slow our recovery from this most recent economic disaster.
