Social media reactions to Obama's announcement, mostly along party lines.
Barack Obama announced his plans to fix the "broken" American immigration system Thursday night with a prime-time address to the nation. Obama outlined a three-point plan that would make more resources available for border operations, give more visas to high-tech immigrants and enforce existing laws against illegal immigration.
"Even as we are a nation of immigrants, we are also a nation of laws," Obama said. "Undocumented workers broke our immigration laws, and I believe that they must be held accountable – especially those who may be dangerous," adding the focus will be on deporting criminals.
