Biden Calls For Immigration Fix

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - 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 in New York on Saturday.
    
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.
