Today the United States President Barack Obama will meet at the White House with union and economic leaders to explain the “benefits” of the immigration reform and the progress of his government on border security.
The purpose of the meeting is to “further highlight the importance of comprehensive immigration reform,” said the White House yesterday in a statement. During the meeting the president will explain how his plan to reform the immigration system within will serve “a broader agenda for economic growth and competitiveness,” according to the White House.
Obama’s efforts will join the efforts of the U.S. Homeland Security secretary, Janet Napolitano, who began yesterday a visit to California and Texas to review the border security reform proposed by the president. The secretary visited San Diego (California) and today she will be in El Paso (Texas) “to inspect the security operations on the Southwest border,” said the Department of Homeland Security in a statement.
