It is possible to pass comprehensive immigration reform within Obama’s first or second year Congress needs to realize that our economic woes are directly linked with our workforce, and our workforce is made up of immigrants. Obama has stated that America has nothing to fear from today’s immigrants. Immigrants hope that in America, they will build better lives for their families. Like the many immigrants that came before them and the Hispanic Americans whose families have been here for generations, the recent arrival of Latino immigrants will enrich America.
The president also said that getting new immigration laws passed will be difficult. Because the U.S. economy is in worse shape than two and three years ago, when immigration bills failed in Congress, he said it would be even more difficult to pass immigration reform now. However, Obama suggested that pro-immigrant organizations to propose ideas on how to pass the reform through Congress. Also, before concentrating on immigration reform, he will focus on improving the system for legal immigration.
Since Obama took office, and in the middle of the economic crisis, pro-immigrant advocates have been waiting to hear concrete news from the White House on when the administration will begin to move forward on immigration reform. During his presidential campaign, Obama had said he would address the issue during his first year in office. Economic difficulties cannot be solved without tackling the immigration problems like increasing work visa and legalizing the undocumented workforce. These immigrants contribute enormously to our economy by spending in our consumer market as well as contributing their skills and labor.

How to Get Into Harvard Law School
♫ Wednesday, January 6th, 2010
Law school is one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences a student can have. The popularity and demand on law schools has grown at a rapid pace. Harvard Law School is one of the most prestigious, if not the most prestigious, law schools in the United States. Thousands upon thousands of people apply to this school every year only to get denied and sent a response to try back next year.
Getting into Harvard basically starts with High School. Grades have to be perfect. Other things like extracurricular activities are extremely important. While Harvard appreciates football and basketball, those are not the type of extracurricular activities they are looking for. They are looking for extracurricular activities such as a debate team that wins conferences, a language club, and things that exercise the mind rather than the body.
Interviewing well is also another huge thing for Harvard Law School Admissions. The student has to do something extraordinary so that they stick out in the minds of the interviewer just as in any job. The interview is one of the biggest aspects considered by the admissions board at Harvard Law School. Having an excellent Bachelor’s program is also extremely important for Harvard Law School Admissions. If the Bachelor’s program didn’t go so well and not enough time was put into studying and grades, then they do not want someone like that at their school. All of the extra time must be devoted to succeeding and becoming one of the top of the graduating class.
Class structure is also very important. It is important to find out what types of classes the Harvard Law School Admissions department looks for in applicants. Many times, classes are taken in the Bachelor’s program that is completely irrelevant to law. That is why it is important to take law oriented classes for electives and not easy classes that are a breeze. The Admissions department is not looking for people that just want to get by. They are looking for people that are dedicated to their career.
Harvard Law School Admissions can be very difficult and stressful. It is important to remember that the time that is put into it is the time that will be gotten out of it. It is important to be prepared completely for every aspect of the admissions program and to know exactly what the school expects. They expect the potential students to know what is expected because if it is not, then they figure that the student does not want to go to school there bad enough. Unlike many other colleges, everything at Harvard Law School is done by the student.
