On Friday U.S. president Barack Obama put his seal on the Southwest Border Security Bill, which could be a move towards "comprehensive immigration reform". At least this is what Homeland Security Janet Napolitano said after the signing of the bill.
The measure provides $600 million, which will be spent to secure the U.S.-Mexican border. It is supposed to strengthen "federal border protection, law enforcement, and counter-narcotics activities".
The Senate has already approved of the border bill on a voice vote. "We want to make sure that the border itself and that -- that 2,000-mile expanse is safe and secure," Napolitano said.
