On July Fourth holiday, Obama urges immigration overhaul

Obama looks on as Mayorkas administers the Oath of Allegiance to members of the U.S. military and military spouses at a ceremony for them to become naturalized U.S. citizens at the White House in WashingtonBy Steve Holland WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama told Americans on the Independence Day holiday on Friday that welcoming immigrants to the United States is “central to our way of life” as he made an impassioned argument for a new immigration policy. “We have to fix our immigration system, which is broken, and pass common-sense immigration reform,” Obama said at a White House ceremony for 25 foreign-born men and women who gained American citizenship for their service in the U.S. military. Obama is struggling on two fronts in the immigration debate. His drive for Congress to pass a comprehensive immigration overhaul this year collapsed when House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner, the top Republican in Washington, told him the House would not hold a vote.
