President Obama and VP Biden Use Cinco de Mayo to Highlight Immigration Reform Push








Yesterday, President Barack Obama used the very-popular Mexican holiday, Cinco de Mayo, to emphasize the strong friendship and influence neighboring country Mexico has on the U.S., especially regarding immigration reform.

“Our friendship with Mexico has had an enormous influence on our history and our culture and our economy. Today, our governments work together on everything from stopping crime to promoting trade to protecting our environment. And millions of Americans are connected to Mexico through ties of friendship and language and family,” said President Obama.

The President and Vice President emphasized how the pressure on Republicans to pass immigration reform this year should continue and not let off.

“We don’t have to redouble our efforts. We have to redouble our demand. We have to redouble our demand that the House of Representatives takes up legislation that’s going to match the strong bill that came out of the United States Senate,” said Vice President Biden.

Both the President and Vice President agree that with a strong push from Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner to put a vote on the House table, the likelihood of passing immigration reform is extremely high.
