Immigration reform has been at the top of the agenda in Washington, D.C. this week, both in Congress and in the Obama administration. On Monday a bipartisan group of eight Senators introduced a plan for reform, and on Tuesday President Obama presented his own plan, similar to the Senate’s proposal, in a speech in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Many of you had questions about the details of the plans. Stephen D. Spurlock wanted to know: Will the 11 million plus illegal’s have to register, get a social security number, pay taxes in order to comply?
Sandy Abraham Stafford wrote in on Facebook: Is there a time frame if immigrants are interested in becoming a citizen to set up the beginning of the process?
And John Cleeveley tweeted: What border controls will the president support?
Thank you for all of the great questions, and please keep them coming on Twitter and on Facebook. We’ll talk a lot more about immigration reform this Sunday on “This Week.” My exclusive guest for the program is Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and the show will also include a powerhouse roundtable. And don’t forget to tune in to “Good Morning America” tomorrow morning.
