  • The President: Michelle and I send our warmest wishes

  • to everyone celebrating the Lunar New Year in here America

  • and all around the world.

  • I'll always remember the parades, fireworks,

  • and gatherings that surrounded the Lunar New year

  • when I was growing up in Hawaii.

  • And now as president, this celebration is a perfect

  • reminder of the many cultures and faiths

  • that make us who we are as Americans.

  • We're a nation of immigrants, our vast array

  • of traditions and perspectives and backgrounds;

  • our melting pot is what makes America unique.

  • It's what keeps us fresh and dynamic, and entrepreneurial.

  • That's why last year I took action to help fix our broken

  • immigration system.

  • But our work isn't finished.

  • We've still got to come together to pass a comprehensive

  • immigration bill, so that we can expand opportunities for more

  • people to study and serve and contribute to our nation.

  • Those are the aspirations that have attracted families to our

  • shores for generations and that story continues today.

  • So, whether you're celebrating the year of the ram,

  • the year of the goat, or the year of the sheep,

  • may we all do our part to carry forward the work of perfecting

  • this country that we love.

  • Happy new year everybody.

The President: Michelle and I send our warmest wishes
