URGENT - Obama Immigration
(CNN) -- President Barack Obama said an immigration reform bill proposed by a "Gang of 8" in the Senate meets criteria that he believes such a plan should have: More effective border security; a crackdown on employers who "are gaming the system"; making the legal immigration system work more effectively; and making sure there is a pathway to citizenship that allows immigrants already in the country to earn legal status over time. Obama said he hasn't seen what House members are proposing, and he'll be open-minded about whether they can address the issue better, but "the bottom line is they still have to meet those basic criteria."
