Obama calls for 'common sense' on immigration

Help

President Obama has called for "common sense" changes to America's immigration laws which he has said are out of date and badly broken.

Mr Obama said he wants reform to help the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the US to "get on the right side of the law", but the issue remains controversial.
