Obama, Sanders rein in immigration rhetoric: Elder Dems reject open borders, defend assimilation

As the Democratic Party tacks increasingly left on immigration, some key figures are moving to reset the rhetoric in their own ranks -- with Sen. Bernie Sanders taking a stand against “open borders” policies and former President Barack Obama highlighting the importance of immigrants assimilating into their host nation’s culture.

"I worry sometimes when, as we think about how to deal with the immigration issue, we think that any moves towards assimilation of the existing newcomers to the existing culture is somehow a betrayal or a denial of people’s heritage or what have you,” Obama said at a town hall event in Berlin on Saturday, before arguing that "if you’re going to have a coherent, cohesive society then everybody has to have some agreed upon rules, and there’s gonna have to be some accommodations that everybody makes, and that includes the people who are newcomers."
