President Obama calls on Congress to pass immigration legislation by the end of the year

TODAY, President Barack Obama called on Congress to finish work on an immigration overhaul by the end of the year, a lofty goal that will be difficult to meet given the staunch opposition of many House Republicans.

“It doesn’t get easier to put it off,” President Obama said today, during an event in the East Room.

The President poignantly added: “Rather than create problems, let’s prove to the American people that Washington can actually solve some problems.”
