Obama, religious leaders seek immigration overhaul
Wednesday - 11/13/2013, 4:58pm EST
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House says religious leaders and President Barack Obama have agreed there is a moral imperative for overhauling the nation's immigration laws and are committed to pushing Congress to act.
Eight leaders of faith-based organizations met with Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and senior White House officials Wednesday in an effort to maintain pressure on lawmakers. The Senate has passed a bipartisan bill that increases border security and provides a path to citizenship for immigrants in the country illegally.
House Speaker John Boehner on Wednesday, however, said the House will not attempt to find a compromise with the Senate bill.
The White House, in a read-out of the president's meeting, said the religious leaders voiced concern that the current system is hurting families in their congregations.
