President Obama said Wednesday that he expects to see a comprehensive immigration reform bill introduced in Congress “very soon” after his inauguration in January 2013.

“I am very confident we can get immigration reform done,” Obama said during a press conference.

On Sunday Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., announced renewed talks to bring back their immigration reform bill, which included increased border enforcement, employment verification, a path to legalization for those already here and changes to the visa program to allow new workers to enter the United States.
