President Barack Obama will lay out his vision Tuesday for his immigration reform during a speech in Las Vegas.
He has called it one of the top priorities of his second term in office. He will focus on campaign promises he made four years ago, but failed to deliver on.
This plan is expected to be more detailed than the first one he introduced.
He has said he would push for improved border security, cracking down on employers who hire undocumented workers and creating an earned pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.
Not everyone is on board with Obama’s plan. The president’s toughest fight will be in the House, which is controlled by Republicans.
But, Congressman Richard Hudson of Concord is in favor of change to help farmers. “They are telling me that they need labor. There’s not enough folks in the local community who want those jobs and so they need to bring in immigrant labor,” Hudson said.
