La Opinión (Los Angeles) publishes an article about the pressure President Obama and Congress are feeling to introduce immigration reform for debate, and the President’s search for a legislative opportunity to tackle the issue. The article details recent activities in the Oval Office and the Capitol in advance of March 21st’s demonstration in Washington. La Opinión quotes Luis Miranda, White House Director of Hispanic Media, reiterating Obama’s commitment to reform: “The President believes we should resolve the status of the 12 million people here in the country illegally, that they need to register, pay a fine for breaking the law and comply with other obligations that legal immigrants have to deal with, like paying taxes, or else they should leave the country.”
