The main purpose of President Obama’s speech was to discuss Immigration Reform.
The audience consisted of business leaders, faith leaders, labor leaders, and law enforcement leaders, Democratic and Republican mayors. There were multiple people from each business sector mentioned.
President Obama’s purpose was to inform his audience on the benefits of Immigration Reform and to remind them that the great nation was built by immigrants. I think he accomplished his purpose of reminding them. “It has helped to build the greatest economic experience.” He went on to inform the audience of the many contributions that immigrants continue to make for this country. “Immigrants created companies like Google and Yahoo, which in turn create new jobs for our economy. One in four high tech startups was started by immigrants.”
The speech had many positive implications. President Obama did not just talk about how immigrants can benefit from the United States of America. He positively points out that there are many International students that we are educating to take their knowledge elsewhere because they are not allowed to stay after they have completed their studies. “Intel was started by an immigrant that studied here and stayed. Instagram was started by an immigrant who study here and stayed.” As an individual his speech will cause him to gain many support. His audience was sold, because he went on to remind them that this unless you are Native American you migrated here for one reason or another.
