Emboldened by the large turnout of Hispanic voters in last week’s general election, U.S. President Barack Obama said Wednesday he plans to move quickly to address what he has called the biggest failure of his first term – comprehensive immigration reform.
“Before the election, I had given a couple of interviews where I predicted that the Latino vote was going to be strong and that that would cause some reflection on the part of Republicans about their position on immigration reform. I think we’re starting to see that already,” Obama said at his first press conference since winning re-election.
“And my expectation is that we get a bill introduced and we begin the process in Congress very soon after my inauguration,” he added.
