President Obama said he would promote new immigration laws in 2010.
He said, “I think the American people want fairness. We can create a system in which we have strong border security. We want an orderly process for people to come in. We are also giving an opportunity for those who are already in the United States to have a pathway to citizenship. We do not want them to live in the shadows.”
The president was meeting with the leaders of Mexico and Canada. They talked about stopping drug smuggling. About 4,200 people have died in drug violence this year. Mr. Obama said I continue to support the efforts of the Mexican government. Mexican president, Felix Calderón said, “The struggle, the battle, the fight against organized crime is to preserve the human rights of Mexican people.”
