Joe Biden calls for immigration fix

US Vice President Joe Biden says Congress has a moral and economic imperative to offer a pathway to citizenship for 11 million immigrants living in the country illegally.



New York: Vice President Joe Biden says Congress has a moral and economic imperative to offer a pathway to citizenship for 11 million immigrants living in the country illegally.

Many of them, he says, "are already Americans," whether they`re here legally or not. He says immigrants simply want a decent life for themselves and their children, just as his great grandparents did.
Biden`s comments came in a speech to Pennsylvania political leaders gathered here yesterday.

It was the second time in a week that Biden addressed immigration publicly. In a recent online chat, he called out House Speaker John Boehner for blocking a vote on a Senate package that includes a pathway to citizenship.
Biden says that majorities of Americans in both parties support such a pathway.
