Obama Administration Tackles Immigration?

Posted By on Tue, Jun 29, 2010 at 2:23 PM

Just in time for the election: The Obama administration wants to tackle immigration reform. HuffPo reports:

President Obama is slated to deliver a major address on immigration reform this week as his Department of Justice puts the final touches on a lawsuit challenging the legality of the immigration legislation passed by the state of Arizona.

The White House announced on Tuesday that the president would head to American University School of International Service on Thursday for "remarks on the need to fix our broken immigration system."

The speech comes as the administration has spent the last several days consulting with key stakeholders in the immigration debate as well as alerting members on the Hill that the DoJ's lawsuit will likely be announced soon.
