It looks like Senator Barrack Obama will be the Presidential candidate for the democrats.  This is good news for those who have been seeking desperately needed changes to our nation’s immigration laws.

Both candidates have expressed their support for Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) which, if properly drafted would address the problem on all fronts: increased border security and interior enforcement, improved legal avenues for talented workers to live and work in the U.S., and a legalization of undocumented aliens who meet specific criteria.  The enactment of CIR will of course be dependent on the make up of Congress.
