LAS VEGAS — President Barack Obama on Tuesday proposed a rewriting of U.S. immigration laws, echoing a bipartisan group of influential U.S. senators in a one-two step that signaled a changing political landscape and the best chance in a generation to change the way the nation treats those who come here illegally.
“The good news is that for the first time in many years, Republicans and Democrats seem ready to tackle this problem together,” the president told a diverse audience at a Las Vegas high school. “Members of both parties, in both chambers, are actively working on a solution. At this moment, it looks like there’s a genuine desire to get this done soon, and that’s very encouraging.”
