WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama said Friday he is committed to a comprehensive immigration overhaul that includes a way for illegal immigrants to become U.S. citizens.

In President Obama’s Latest on Immigration Reform, ImmigrationProf Blog cites Obama’s remarks at the breakfast. Here’s a snippet:

We also know that keeping this promise means upholding America’s tradition as a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants. Those things aren’t contradictory; they’re complementary. That’s why I’m committed to passing comprehensive immigration reform as President of the United States. (Applause.)
