Obama to Announce Immigration Plan

Get ready for some fireworks. President Obama is expected to unveil sweeping immigration reform in Las Vegas on Tuesday—and key Republican lawmakers John McCain and Marco Rubio had already attempted to steal the spotlight by announcing their bipartisan plan on Monday. White House officials insisted on Monday that Obama’s plan would focus more on details rather than the set of principals announced on Monday by the bipartisan group of senators that included Rubio and McCain. One key difference already noted in the two plans is the senators have linked border security to granting citizenship status to the 11 million undocumented immigrants, a connection the president does not support.
