"And we should continue the work of fixing our broken immigration system -- to secure our borders, enforce our laws and ensure that everyone who plays by the rules can contribute to our economy and enrich our nations."
The President made this statement toward the end of the address last night. It does bookmark the issue but in the context of a lengthy speech did little to make it seem like a priority of the administration. I think that it is an exaggeration but Sandip Roy on Huffington Post suggests that President Obama "killed [immigration reform] gently, with a pat on the head."
