David Axlerod Weighs in on Immigration Ahead of President Obama's Speech

Leading up to President Obama's speech on immigration at 10:45 a.m. EDT, Senior Adviser to the President David Axelrod has put out a press release on the importance of passing cir. Excerpts are below:

The President believes that we must have a practical, common-sense approach that reflects our heritage and our history -- as a nation of immigrants and a nation of laws. Government must be accountable for enforcing the law, businesses that seek unfair advantages over competitors must be accountable for exploiting the system, and those who break the law must be accountable as well.
