Democratic Senator Barack Obama has been elected the first black president of the United States
05 November 2008. Barack Obama’s overwhelming victory in presidential elections could open ‘a new chapter’ in US relations with the rest of the world, but what does it means for the immigrants in the US?
On the official website of the campaign, the Democrat president confirms his commitment to preserve the integrity of the US borders, to fix the dysfunctional immigration bureaucracy and increase the number of legal immigrants to keep families together and meet the demand for jobs that employers cannot fill.
Obama supports a system that requires undocumented immigrants who are in good standing to pay a fine, learn English, and go to the back of the line for the opportunity to become citizens.
