The two Democrat U.S. Senators in New Jersey say they applaud the announcement by President Barack Obama to deal with the immigration issue via executive order. U.S. Senator Robert Menendez said it is good to know who is here, while U.S. Senator Cory Booker said he thought it would be a good first step but more action needs to be taken. President Barack Obama said he would use executive order to bring immigration reform to undocumented residents in the country. The plan would avoid deportation for those that follow the steps required in the order.
