Obama Immigration Speech: Live Coverage


President Obama is giving a major speech on immigration this morning at American University. It’s only his second time addressing the issue in a big public address. He’s expected to address the administration’s decision to file suit against Arizona’s harsh immigration law and, per usual, urge Republicans to join him in pushing for a comprehensive overhaul—but without offering any kind of specific timeline.
