Obama Pressing Congress to Move on Immigration

President Barack Obama says this is the moment to pass immigration reform.

Obama says now that the partial government shutdown is over, Republicans and Democrats should be able to work together to fix what he called a “broken immigration system.”

The president spoke from the East Room at the White House this morning and said he wants Congress to act on immigration before the end of the year.

House Speaker John Boehner says he’s optimistic the House could act on immigration by year’s end but it’s not certain that Republicans will support the comprehensive approach Obama is seeking.,

The Senate passed a wide-ranging bill in June with bipartisan support, but the measure stalled in the House. Most House Republicans want a piece-by-piece approach.
