Obama to discuss immigration reform Tuesday

By Rachel Rose Hartman, Yahoo! News | The Ticket 3 hrs ago

After a meeting with leadership of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus on Friday, the White House announced in a statement that President Barack Obama will travel to Las Vegas, Nev., on Tuesday to speak about immigration reform.

White House press secretary Jay Carney confirmed the trip at his Friday press briefing. "This blueprint that the president's had in place ... is reflected now in some of the generalized proposals that have been discussed by Republicans in Congress, and that is a welcome development," he said. "We think that it at least suggests a possibility here that an issue that was once embraced by leading Republicans like John McCain and President George W. Bush will again be taken up and embraced by Republicans, which would then afford an opportunity for a bipartisan consensus to move forward on this important issue."

In the statement, the press secretary's office noted that the president aims "to redouble the administration's efforts to work with Congress to fix the broken immigration system this year."
