The White House is pressing lawmakers to move forward on legislation that would reform the nation's immigration laws. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said she believes a reform bill could pass next year. She noted that the nation has met border security goals and added that illegal immigration declined during the economic downturn. "The hope is that when we get into the first part of 2010, that we will see legislation begin to move," Napolitano said.
