Obama to push for immigration reform the "day after" a budget deal

“Once that’s done, you know, the day after — I’m going to be pushing to say, call a vote on immigration reform,” Obama told Univision’s Los Angeles affiliate. “And if I have to join with other advocates and continue to speak out on that, and keep pushing, I’m going to do so because I think it’s really important for the country. And now is the time to do it.”

The president reiterated his claim that the only thing holding back passage of the Senate’s immigration bill is “Speaker Boehner not willing to call the bill on the floor of the House of Representatives.”
