Share This:

Meeting Covers Immigration Reform, and What the President Plans to do About it During His First Year

Today, President Obama had a robust and strategic meeting with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC).  The meeting’s main focus was the topic of immigration reform. According to the White House, The President “discussed how the administration will work with the CHC to address immigration concerns in both the short and long term.”

Frank Sharry, Executive Director of America’s Voice, outlines his take on the meeting:

“The CHC’s meeting with President Obama is yet another in a long lists of signs that the Administration and Congress are supportive of immigration reform.  During his presidential campaign, the President committed to tackling this issue during his first year.  We expect him to make good on that commitment. The members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus get it, and we thank them for continuing to keep this issue front and center on the agenda. 

We look forward to the President moving forward on his commitment to solving this moral dilemma in a way that lives up to our best ideals as Americans and not our worst fears.”
