The headline of the article says it all. The only thing that Obama needs to do to "focus on immigration" is to enforce the federal laws that we have in regards to immigration.

Community cautious in wake of kidnapping (May 11, 2011)
Kidnapping suspect not yet identified (May 10, 2011)
Calm urged in wake of girl's abduction (May 9, 2011)
Guzman, who rented a room from the girl's mother earlier this year, was identified as a possible suspect two days after the girl's abduction, police said.
Police picked him up and questioned him on May 9. Guzman, who is from Mexico, was held by immigration authorities until his arrest on Monday, police said.
Police said although Guzman has no record, he may have committed similar crimes in the past and are asking the public's help in that regard.
"This is a particularly brutal crime," said Riverside Police Chief Sergio Diaz. "Given what we know about sexual predators, we don't believe this was his first time out.… It's altogether possible this individual left the victim for dead."

Riverside police Detective Roberta Hopewell speaks to the media about abduction suspect Jose Wilson Rojas Guzman, as Riverside Police Chief Sergio Diaz listens on Tuesday.
The girl has been released from the hospital and is recovering at home but does not remember what happened, police said.
Earlier this year, Guzman rented a room in the Pike Street apartment complex where the girl lives her mother and two siblings. He lived there about two months.
Guzman and the girl's mother met after she advertised a room for rent, police said. The mother thought Guzman worked at a factory, police said.
He was unemployed when he was arrested, police noted.
Within days after the kidnapping and assault, police identified Guzman as a suspect, they said. DNA evidence collected from him and the girl was processed by the San Bernardino County sheriff's crime lab, and a match was made on Monday, police said.
Guzman told police that he has been in the country for eight years. Police said they believe he might have been renting a room on Riverside's west side before he was arrested.

Jose Wilson Rojas Guzman
He is being held on $1 million bail at the Robert Presley Detention Center in Riverside.
The girl was taken from her home sometime after 11 p.m. May 7. The abductor entered the apartment through an unsecured window and kidnapped the girl, who was sleeping at home with her 3- and 12-year-old siblings. Their mother was working at the time.
Detective Roberta Hopewell, of the Riverside Police Department, said no charges are being considered against the mother, who left the children home alone
The abductor assaulted the little girl before throwing her out of the vehicle he was driving in a residential neighborhood near Challen Park close to Giles Court and Bolton Avenue.
Surveillance cameras at the apartment complex and in the neighborhood where the girl was left helped police identify a pickup truck they believe was used by the kidnapper. Guzman was in a similar pickup truck when officers spotted him on May 9, police said.
"Hopefully, the girl will feel safer, the neighborhood will feel much safer," Hopewell said.
