FAIR blasts Obama's immigration plansAt a recent White House meeting President Obama has promised a debate on a "comprehensive" immigration reform within one year, but a number of groups are already opposing his plans.

One of them is Federation for American Immigration Reform(FAIR), the country’s largest immigration reform group, which points out that since taking office the new administration has abandoned enforcement of U.S. immigration laws, such as the E-Verify requirements.

It has also expressed concerns about suggestion a new amnesty may take place.

"The American people have some very clear ideas about the priorities President Obama and Congress need to address – and a massive illegal alien amnesty isn’t one of them," says Dan Stein, president of FAIR.

"The public wants our immigration system fixed, but they expect their interests, not the interests of the people who broke our laws, to be paramount," he adds.

At a meeting held at the White House in late June, Obama told a bipartisan group of lawmakers that Congress should begin debating a plan by year’s end or early next year, according to media reports.

At the same time, Republicans, including Arizona Senator John McCain, said they would support a measure only if it included an expansion of guest worker programs.
