Obama reaches out to 3 key Republicans on immigration reform

Published: 02.20.13, 00:29 / Israel News

President Barack Obama urged key Republican senators Marco Rubio, John McCain and Lindsey Graham to help produce bipartisan legislation as soon as possible for a sweeping immigration overhaul that includes strengthened border security and an "earned path" to citizenship for illegal immigrants in the United States.

 

"As the president made clear when he met with Democratic senators involved in the process last week, that while he is pleased with the progress and supportive of the effort, he is prepared to submit his own legislation if Congress fails to act," the White House said in a statement. (Reuters)
