LAS VEGAS - US President Barack Obama appealed for a "common-sense" and comprehensive overhaul of US immigrations laws on Tuesday to help illegal immigrants "get on the right side of the law."

In a speech in Las Vegas, Obama said an overhaul would strengthen the US economy. He said some issues will be difficult to negotiate with Congress, but "now's the time" for change.
