President Obama is keeping hope alive for comprehensive immigration reform legislation this year. Earlier this week, a group of immigration advocates, community leaders, policy experts and faith leaders met with the president and his cabinet to discuss the state of comprehensive immigration reform. In that meeting, the president reaffirmed an earlier commitment to the faith community to speak publicly about the issue soon.
The president will give a speech about comprehensive immigration reform at American University in Washington, D.C. today at 10:30 a.m. EST.
Allison Johnson is the campaign coordinator of Christians for Comprehensive Immigration Reform.
